Dances and the Path of Vidya is a discourse given by Shrii Shrii Anandamurti in Hannover, Germany. The discourse was delivered in English on the evening of 1979 May 22. This discourse is the twentieth chapter of Ananda Vacanamrtam Part 12.[1]


If someone is angry, you must win him over just by a cool temper. If someone is dishonest, win him over by your honesty. If someone is a miser, win him over by spending something on him. When you meet a liar, be veracious with him, or win him over to absolute truthfulness.

Shrii Shrii Anandamurti

Anandamurti starts the discourse by stating that Lalita Marmika, Tandava and kaoshiki are both devotional and mudraic dances. He then explains that some mudras are beneficial for the sadhaka and others are harmful and should not be used. Anandamurti goes on saying that wishing to harm someone is counterproductive. Instructing the person and showing him an opposite and positive attribute has an educative value, has no personal harm, and is rather more beneficial.[1]
