Excerpts from Swami Venkatesananda's writings

Real silence is a desire-free, disturbance-free, peaceful mind.
A mind that is ever peaceful, ever alert, is itself meditation.
When you become imperturbable like the ocean, even if there is an excitement you are still the ocean.
Millions of waves may be there, but still the ocean remains ocean.
Yoga is integration of our own personality, which prevents countless physical and mental maladies; of our individuality within society, which ensures social welfare, harmony and national prosperity; of the soul with God, which is enlightenment or salvation.
It is not a religion or a cult.
Rightly understood: it is the core of all religions.
Religious conversion loses all meaning; yoga strengthens and vitalizes one's faith in one's own religion.
It promotes true understanding in each practitioner who is eager to concede to others the same religious freedom that he wishes to enjoy.
Step by step yoga leads us to the pinnacle of perfection, total freedom from every type of limitation and bondage.
