Sri Masturbananda

I wrote about Sri Tamasananda a couple months ago. Like most of these yogic names, it's a combination of a word and ananda, meaning the bliss of whatever it is. In this case, Tamasananda means the bliss of the tamas guna, generally the least liked one of all.

Today I'm thinking of another great saint, Sri Masturbananda, with his very own unspoken source of bliss. Often spending his time alone, when he does finally appear in public he's usually smiling. At least a beatific grin. The swami is also the patron saint of magazine readers everywhere.
