Excerpts from Swami Venkatesananda's writings

September 10 september
Wars, revolutions, strikes and other socio political agitations, various international controls, birth control and tranquillisers - are all proof of our incompetence and unwillingness to look for the root of the problem.
Wherever we start in our search for the Truth we must remember that these are words.
What we usually do with all the great masters is to follow all the convenient examples.
What suits me, I follow.
But I cannot do what is uncomfortable for me.
And therefore, when he does what does not suit me, I say, "Oh, He was so great. He was God almighty; he can do that, but I cannot; I can only do this."
I put Him on a pedestal and worship Him - and what is comfortable, nice, and pleasant, I blindly copy.
That won't do.
