Swami Shankarananda Thoughts

All problems of mankind fall into two types. One which are materialistic whose solution are found in the material plane which are short lived; the second type which is spiritual in nature and the solution of this is of lasting and permanent nature. It is usually believed that the origin of our problems is in something external – a thing, a person or a situation which if remedied will solve the problem. This is not true. The main source of problem is within us. The cause of many problems originates within the individual, if that is taken care of, the external cause will not arise nor will they give rise to any problem. The root cause for all our internal problems is the ignorance of our true nature – The Self. Our true nature is nothing but an embodiment of joy and bliss. Swami Shankarananda
