Swami Tejomayananda Thoughts on Success

True abiding success is that in which lies the welfare and well being of all people. When all are happy, then our happiness is automatically included. When we strive selfishly only for our own happiness, we can make many people miserable.

True success is that in which lies prosperity for all; steady inner growth, and firm and abiding spiritual values (dharma).
For true success we should see whether it is gained through noble of ignoble means. Both the goal and the means are important. Even if the goal is good but gained through unfair means, then the gain is not glorious.
