Excerpts from Swami Venkatesananda's writings

Lord Krishna's path is one of "adventure with calculated risk".
He does not encourage weak-heartedness or impotence.
Nor does he encourage self-destructive foolhardiness.
The third of the above verses warns us that we should calculate the consequences, not with pessimistic withdrawal but in order that the effort may be matched with the task, that unnecessary loss and injury may be avoided, and that we may not try to jump on to our own shoulders.
It should not be misconstrued as cowardice.
If you look at the world with love, it reflects happiness towards you, if you look at the world with hate, it reflects unhappiness towards you.
Why must I feel that it is too late to change now?
Why must I be shy - ashamed of confessing that I have been wrong, that I have messed up my own and other people's lives?
If that is true, let us face it.
Whatever be my chronological age, if I have not started on the quest of self-discovery, I am an unborn baby.
If I don't know what I am, how do I know I exist?
