Have the ability to get on well with others. This is tact. Weigh the pros and cons of a situation and arrive at a wise decision. Have the keenness of intellect to understand and master the given problem. Be quick in the uptake. Have honesty of purpose, or integrity. Your moral characteristics must be beyond reproach. Have the ability to do things on your own. Depend not on others. Have the initiative. You can overcome sickness by strength of will. Therefore, cultivate will-power. Will-power is the chief principle of life. Will-power is soul-force or Atma-bal. You must use your will to live, facing and enduring suffering but not surrendering to adversity. It is cowardly to count death as an escape from suffering. Progress or growth is the fundamental law of nature.
Caution: Fraudulent Website
This is to caution all the devotees of Gurudev that some fraudsters have launched a website impersonating the official website of The Divine Life Society, in order to mislead the public and collect money in the name of booking rooms, joining Yoga Courses, etc. Devotees are advised to beware of the fake website with the address https://sivanandaashram.co.in/, email Id firstname.lastname@example.org & phone number 9668461538 and take necessary precautions from falling prey to such scammers. It has never been a practice of the Ashram to let the devotees book rooms or register for Yoga Courses through phone or Whatsapp.
Those who are devoted to the Ashram and Gurudev know very well that the Ashram does not charge anything for any Seva at the Ashram. Please take note that the official websites of The Divine Life Society are https://www.sivanandaonline.org and https://www.dlshq.org, email Ids are email@example.com and firstname.lastname@example.org and the online donation portal is https://donations.sivanandaonline.org
To attain union with God, be humble like a blade of grass, simple like a child, and love the Lord like Gopis.
