18. Books For Modern Students -
Ques: Which books of Guru Maharaj would you recommend for the modern college boys?
Ans: I would say that the college students should read as many books of Swamiji as possible.
Sivananda Literature will enable them to overcome fear, anger and other vices, to develop a strong will and to understand the true aim of life.
While Gurudev has written nearly 300 books, the students should try to study at least the following which contain the cream of Swamiji’s ‘Upadesa’ to boys and girls :-
1. Sure Ways for Success in Life and God-Realisation.
2. Students’ Success in Life.
3. Practice of Brahmacharya.
4. Ethical Teachings.
5. Mind, Its Mysteries and Control.
6. Moral and Spiritual Regeneration.
7. Inspiring Messages.
8. How to Cultivate Virtues and Eradicate Vices.
9. Conquest of Anger.
10. Conquest of Fear.
11. First Aid to the Injured.
12. Spiritual Lessons.
13. Sivananda Upadesamritam.
14. Bhagavad Gita for Students.
15. Ethics of the Bhagavad Gita.
16. World Peace.
17. World’s Religions.
18. Precepts for Practice.
Some of these books have to be possessed by all students as their own personal copy.
The rest of the books in the list may be taken up for group study.
Students must form study circles.
Such study circles should take one book at a time from some common library and study through it in a series of daily sittings and thus finish that particular book. Next, another book could be taken.
Thus, in the course of a year or two, during their college career, they would enrich themselves immensely through such spiritual studies, simultaneously with their academic studies.
