A collection of 85 inspiring talks delivered at the conclusion of the early morning meditation at Sivananda Ashram.
Early rooming meditation has long been a tradition at Sivananda Ashram. Held in the sacred Samadhi Hall of the founder of The Divine Life Society, His Holiness Sri Swami Sivanandaji Maharaj, the present format was inaugurated by His Holiness Sri Swami Chidanandaji Maharaj during his birthday celebrations September 24, 1984. Since then, fulfilling a promise he made that day, whenever he has been in the ashram revered President Swamiji has given a daily talk during the morning meditation gathering.
In 1995, Swamiji Maharaj requested Sri Swami Atmaswarupanandaji to also give a brief talk six mornings a week. Later he requested him to have the talks recorded and brought out in book form. This volume of 85 talks is in response to that request, and it is being released on the auspicious 85th birthday anniversary of revered Swami Chidanandaji Maharaj.
