Excerpts from Swami Venkatesananda's writings

Self-knowledge is different from a layman 's knowledge of the radio; all he knows is how to turn the knobs, the rest was done by the engineer.
If I think that my happiness lies in his (or her) doing what I want, so does his happiness lie in me doing what he (or she) wants!
It is at once plain that if happiness is mutual, giving it is easier, more practicable and less of a problem than demanding it.
Living does not involve struggle, contrary to popular misconception.
The simplest form of "living" is joyous and blissful, and life is intelligent, wise and alert enough to avoid pain and unhappiness instantly.
