Excerpts from Swami Venkatesananda's writings

today/vandaag is
September 18 september
knowledge is twofold: paroksa (indirect and intellectual) and aparoksa (direct and intuitive).
The former is knowledge by contact, via a medium (e.g., scripture, guru) and the latter is knowledge by identity.
It is immediate knowledge, without a medium, and arises from direct experience.
Such knowledge is real knowledge and puts an end to all doubt and uncertainty.
The power to reveal that immediate knowledge is vested only in God;
If there is unhappiness or sorrow in me, I am not going to ask 'Why is it there?' or 'How did it arise?' but 'What is it?'
I have a rather simple prayer.
"God, give me enough health to be able to serve, to work, and enough pain not to forget you."
