Excerpts from Swami Venkatesananda's writings

today/vandaag is
June 8 juni
Only identification of our own self with the persons involved gives rise to grief.
'A boy drowned in the sea' is news; 'My son was drowned' is a heart-breaking tragedy!
Both boys were living beings, born of parents, but the latter was 'my son', and that makes all the difference.
To the devotee everything is the gift of God; therefore he is constantly contented.
Self-discipline is the antidote to selfishness.
Only he who is unselfish can be disciplined.
