Excerpts from Swami Venkatesananda's writings

The dull intellect thinks that one point of view is the absolute truth which means that you think that your point of view is the only truth in the whole world.
Self-development is like the unfolding of the spirit that is already there.
But I am not able to discover that spirit all at once, because the spirit is covered.
When I turn to look within, I am merely seeing that cover.
The "cover" of craving for pleasure, craving for domination, for superiority - all of which is violence.
I need to be able to look at this clearly, look at it closely, turn it around, and see how it works, so as to handle it successfully.
