Ques: Can you tell me, Swamiji, what you people mean by “Sivananda Literature Festival”?
I have never heard or read of such a thing in the history of the world.
Ans: Well, it is difficult to say whether the idea of a Literature Festival is entirely new.
I think in England, they pay an annual tribute to Shakespeare by holding a festival at Stratford-on-Avon.
In any case, the Sivananda Literature Festival which is an occasion to celebrate the foremost life-work of our beloved Master has a momentous significance in the context of the spiritual ignorance through which the world is passing through.
Sivananda Literature, as you know, has produced a “Navina Jagriti” or a new awakening in the world.
The Sivananda Literature Festival is, therefore, a fitting occasion to recollect the teachings of Gurudev and spread them far and wide.
It is also an occasion to pay our humble homage to Gurudev’s sacred literature, every word of which vibrates with the power of the master.
During the Festival, we shall have, among other things, an exhibition of Swamiji’s literature—books and magazines published in India and abroad—and also offer Puja to Swamiji’s books, just as we worship books in general on the occasion of Sarasvati Puja.
Swamiji’s noble literature has been and is continuing to be a great force in shaping the thoughts and ideals of the peoples of this modern era. Herein lies its significant greatness.
