Inspirational Quotes from Swami Satchidananda

Selflessness is the key to spiritual life.

Restlessness of mind is caused by disappointments.

Your ultimate goal is to be happy. Where is that happiness? Within you.

When you forget your true nature and look for happiness in external ways, that is the basic ignorance.

When we finally tire of searching for happiness outside, we sit quietly and analyze and realize that true and lasting happiness can never come from outside. It can't come because it simply is. You are Happiness personified. You are that Supreme Bliss. You are that Joy. You are the image of happiness. God is the one who is always happy, and you are the image of God.
