Excerpts from Swami Venkatesananda's writings

today/vandaag is
 
November 30 november
Man walks the burning sands of the desert in order to quench his thirst at a far lake, only to find that the lake is a mirage.
How can these unreal causes produce such real effects?
Because in the darkness of unawareness the 'I' arises and thinks it is real, vainly imagining (and creating) evils and sufferings.
This is the only sin.
To fail is not failure.
It is a pointer to the area of weakness which needs to be strengthened.
The search itself is success.
The intelligence is awakened.
This is immeasurable success.
This is religious instruction of the future: to hear the truth, and having heard the truth, to examine oneself in its light.
