Swami Sunirmalananda Sayings

The education we receive in universities is adding more and more locks to the doors of our prison. We are getting more involved in this objective world, assuming it to be real, assuming that we shall reform it, modify it, better it, derive more happiness from it, and so on. We need positive education, and colleges cannot give us that. Vedanta can give us that education. Vedanta opens our eyes by giving us the ‘statement of facts’. It tells us the truth, shows us that we are being deceived by others, and leaves us to choose for ourselves what we think is best for us. To be mature means to know that the world is impermanent, and its so-called joys and pleasures too are impermanent. Right vision or the statement of facts is to know of things as they are. Most of us color things before even looking at them. We look at things through ‘our angle’ of vision — that is, we paint them using such colors as our ego, desires, ambitions, and so on.
