ID:	35073Swami Govindananda Bharati (1826-1963) aka Shri Sivapuri Baba, a great saint who lived for 137 years. He spent 37 years in Dhruvastali, in Shivapuri forests in Nepal and attained siddhi on Jan,28,1963. He was a man of few words and insisted on "Right Living" as fundamental requirement for spiritual progress. I copy below Baba's words:

    Babas' Teachings to realize GOD is simple. His teaching is Right Life( SWADHARMA) which means Devotion And Discrimination.

    Right Life comprises following Physical, Moral and Spiritual Disciplines.

    Physical Discipline

    Take care of the Body.
    Decide how much to eat, how much to drink, how much to Sleep,how much sex and extra activity.
    Have a professional duty.
    Earn money
    to maintain Life and family. Look after your dependents.

    Moral Discipline
    Follow the 26 divine virtues mentioned in the first three verses of 16th Chapter of Bhagavad Gita..
    Do not harm people.
    Use discrimination and help people at the time of need.
    Contribute at least 10 percent of your income to the needy people, educational institutions, students etc.
    Save 30 percent of your income to use that amount at the time of need.
    Begin charity from the home, neighbors.
    Make your mind strong.The strong mind is between two worlds which enables human being to face their duties with serenity and to enter upon his search for God.
    Read the Books like Bhagavad Gita, Bhagavata, Ramayana, Mahabharata, Books On Buddha, Christ, Mohammad and other spiritual personalities.

    Spiritual Discipline

    Devote maximum time in God worship.
    Meditate on him, in the beginning with form and try to go beyond form.
    If you go on passing your time on meditating on God, God will come in a flash.
    If you see God or Truth, all your problems will be solved and no re-birth in the world.
    After God realization also the soul immediately will not leave this gross body.
    It stays in the body so long as one enjoys prarabdha.
    Prarabdha is the accumulation of your deeds in your past life. When is not left, no rebirth.

    "Truth is harsh and justice uncompromising ."
    -Shri Shivapuri Baba-
