Excerpts from Swami Venkatesananda's writings

You praise the teacher.
He ought to be surprised to hear that the student could understand what he himself has not understood!
But if he is as foolish as you are, then he thinks that he is a great teacher.
And so goes the circus.
Why is it that we always have to be told what our duty is?
It is because the attention is elsewhere.
I am not discovering my nature, but I am more interested in covering up my nature, and pretending that I am something else.
I am looking at someone else, and comparing myself with him.
This is another wretched pastime, because it always misleads me.
