Excerpts from Swami Venkatesananda's writings

What is ignorance?
Identification of the self, which is but the witness consciousness, with the body and the world, which constantly change.
What is wisdom?
Realisation that the self is but the witness of this world-process and world-activity.
What is God?
Why not admit: "I do not know."
The "I" creates a motivation, a goal or a reward.
Thus are born the ideas of success and failure, pleasure and pain, and all the rest of the pairs of inseparable opposites.
