Words to Ponder – Swami Tejomayananda



That which is auspicious, purifies our mind and creates peace and love within us.

An inauspicious sight creates revulsion and agitation and abusive words create anger.

A beautiful sunset elevates us and a macabre sight depresses us.

About fifty years back we found that every Indian home had pictures of Gods and Goddesses in every room. Presently children wake up to rock music, have WWF heroes and pictures of rock stars pasted in their rooms. They dress, speak, think and act like heroes they idolize. With minds filled with desires, agitations and restlessness, we find them unprepared for the studies that they have to undertake.
