Disappointment can come only to those who make appointments with the future – Swami Chinmayananda

All weaknesses are transmuted into strengths when the right spiritual values are accepted and the seeker takes the daring resolve to live the spiritual quest.
Ego is just a bundle of thoughts consisting of the memories of the past and hopes and expectations for the future.
Be openly happy in the joy of others. Be sincerely sympathetic in others sorrows.
Disappointment can come only to those who make appointments with the future.
Children are not vessels to be filled, but lamps to be lit.
The Principle is simple - You can never solve a problem as long as you are in the problem. Get out of it! Swami Chinmayananda
