Fortune never remains steady – Yoga Vasishta

The one whose mind has ceased to be interested in earthly pleasures or fame stands verily liberated.
The entire worldly life is evanescent and fleeting like a flash of lightning in the sky.

A true life is that which attains what is worthy of attainment, so that there will be no cause for sorrow and a state of supreme tranquility is reached.

Riches and prosperity do not lead to happiness but result in miseries and sufferings due to various anxieties, worries and fear.

Fortune never remains steady.

The worldly life fosters our ego which leads us to sufferings and difficulties. As a result of Ego, one easily loses peace and equanimity of mind. It is the ego which is the cause of expansion of our desires.
