Thoughts from Yoga Vasishta

Life causes only pain because people get bitten by the poisonous snakes of desires. They do not have strong discriminating sense to save themselves from them. We have limited understanding because of the identification with body. That alone is life in which one attains the state of bliss wherein in one grieves not. Calm the mind, slowly and not at once, by pacifying counseling as though you fondle the child. Sorrows, desires, afflictions get destroyed like darkness before sun, in the case of persons with calm minds. A person does not experience that kind of happiness either through drinking of elixir or embrace of Goddess of Wealth which he gets through a mind imbued with tranquility. Yoga Vasishta
