Excerpts from Swami Venkatesananda's writings

For, true humility is not experienced within oneself, but is seen by others.
If you have a whole bookshelf of cookery books, it will not appease your hunger until you apply the recipes and cook something!
We have been told that, if we suffer in this world, we will go to heaven and enjoy there.
We have been conditioned to think that in order to enjoy afterwards we must suffer now.
The suffering is therefore directly related to some pleasure later on.
We cannot abandon the idea of pleasure altogether.
Let it go, I don't want it either here or hereafter, neither physical nor spiritual.
I don't want this at all; it is a nuisance.
