Sivananda's Personality-73.


In this view of renunciation no torturing of the body was involved.

On the contrary, the Master took pains to keep his body always healthy, so that it could be put to efficient use in the service of God’s children. In the early years of his mission, he used to go for long evening walks.

In the winter months he used to play badminton in the Ashram itself.

When work increased, he could not find sufficient time for these.

So he got a tennis ball and racket and played on the wall for a few minutes, whenever he felt the need for relaxation.

After those few minutes, the Master would be ready again for another spell of work.

As he grew old he did some simple exercises on the bed itself.

He never missed his Asanas and Pranayama.

These practices kept his body fit for work.
