Excerpts from Swami Venkatesananda's writings

November 22 november
The swami engaged in self-willed desire-prompted action is no better than a business executive, except that the latter is more honest!
The layman who performs the most prosaic task without egoism or selfish desire qualifies for self-realisation.
Can you, without a shirt, feel the centre of your back?
It's very difficult.
But let one small ant crawl there and you can pinpoint that spot on your back.
You become aware of it.
In the same way sorrow is there in order that we may be able to look within and see that where it hurts, what hurts.
