Excerpts from Swami Venkatesananda's writings

November 4 november
It is not the action itself that counts in the eyes of the Lord, but the spirit that motivates it.
The planets would not twinkle but for the light of the sun.
In themselves they are dull and dark.
A great South Indian devotee thus spoke to the Lord: "Lord, I am a destitute without you; and your supreme compassion needs me - a weak and undeserving sinner - in order to shine. So, we are both indispensable to each other!"
What a bold and true statement!
I am looking for happiness - how do I know that such a thing exists?
If you ask this question seriously, only one thing exists and that is the questioner.
The hoper of the hopes exists; the rememberer of the memories exists.
That is all.
