Excerpts from Swami Venkatesananda's writings

Knowledge of scriptures is not necessary, only personal realization is - a pious sentiment.
But the illiterate fool who says so is not interested in personal realization either.
Even in striving for good things, being good or doing good, there is already strife, egoism and vanity.
They will come in through the back door.
The ego asserts itself and assumes an importance it does not possess.
The ego thinks that it supports life and that it is indispensable, and that without it, life cannot go on in this world.
