Excerpts from Swami Venkatesananda's writings

The Guru waits not only for the disciple to ask, but to get into the proper attitude of receptivity.
Nothing can really be understood intellectually.
The intellect only thinks it understands.
The intellect creates the problem and then it thinks that it has produced a solution or, if the solution is suggested by someone else, it thinks it has understood the solution.
All this unfortunately is in the field of ignorance.
I am by nature an optimist, but I am realistic enough to be pessimistic when it comes to mass acceptance of any doctrine, thought, or ideology.
