Swami Veda Bharati Thoughts

The more desires, the more needs; the less needs, the less struggle.
One can fend against imagined shadow swords only with mind-swords.
Force that runs the whirling blades of a fan is not seen with the eyes. May you discover your unseen forces.
Like dew drop hanging on the edge of a leaf is your life. Attain self realization before the dew drop drops or dries up.
Make friends with your mind. Talk to Mind. Convince mind to be sattvic in all spheres. Persuade mind to take to path of serenity.
