Distractions manifest themselves when there is no happiness in the mind - Swami Krishnananda

Unselfishness is not loss of self. It is a transcendence of the lower self in gaining mastery through the higher self.

We are slaves from the point of view of the body, but masters from the point of view of the soul.

How can we have a daily routine which is inconsistent with the purpose of our life?

Distractions manifest themselves when there is no happiness in the mind.

…you will see that all the objects of the world are your own universal self.


Wisdom is not negation of anything.
Swami Krishnananda
