Grief over any matter is born of ignorance – Swami Tejomayananda

Do not grieve over the past, nor fear the future. Certain events just happen in life and it is up to us to accept them. Life, at every moment demands decisions and actions from us.

Grief over any matter is born of ignorance.

If we grieve over the past and worry about the future, we are not able to deal effectively with what is presently before us. Therefore, the only true choice give to us is how to deal with the present moment.

Our experiences and moods change according to the contact with the sense objects. Experiences come and go. Therefore it is of no use to complain about anything; instead we should endure all that we encounter in life bravely.
