In discovering the inner freedom lies our true manliness – Vedanta Kesari

Self-discipline is the way to overcome the compelling force of the senses and their impressions.

This man is strong in body, but weak in mind. He can lift a stone weighing 1000 kgs, but cannot bear the weight of a single unpleasant word.

Blaming others or fate or God for our actions and circumstances in life is a sign of weakness and slavery.

Restraining our senses, disciplining our thoughts, sublimating our emotions and expanding our ego to embrace the whole world are essential steps in the path to freedom.

To be free from all forms of misery, we should take full responsibility for our lives.

When we accept the fact that we are the makers of our own destiny, we shall rise to our highest and best and our character will be transformed.

Self-faith and self-dependence will awaken our inner divinity, our true nature.

In discovering the inner freedom lies our true manliness.
