Excerpts from Swami Venkatesananda's writings

Wonderment gives rise to quest, inquiry.
Without the latter the wonderment may degenerate into sensuality, emotional exhibitionism or materialism.
Esquire is discovery.
Before saving someone who is drowning, are we sure that we are good swimmers?
The goal of the body is the grave or the crematorium.
But the goal of the soul is God or perfection.
"Be ye therefore perfect, even as your father in heaven is perfect."
In our endeavor to reach this perfection, we serve humanity.
This is culture, this is religion.
