Swami Yatiswarananda Thoughts

A danger in spiritual life is to be extremely selfish. Many a time, I have found that at least in the beginning of spiritual life, spiritual seekers think too much of themselves. They forget about others. So it is good to pray not only for one’s own welfare but also for the welfare of all. Just as you aspire after peace, you want to attain purity; you want to attain illumination, so also pray for peace, purity and enlightenment for everybody. ‘Let all people move towards the Supreme Being. Let all people become pure. Let all people become illumined.’ This kind of prayer has a broadening effect on our mind. You will be astonished to see how quickly this kind of prayer soothes your nerves and calms your mind. Besides expanding our consciousness to some extent, this kind of prayer and salutation greatly helps us in the practice of meditation.
