“Put your heart, mind, and soul into even your smallest acts. This is the secret of success.
Do not brood over your past mistakes and failures as this will only fill your mind with grief, regret and depression. Do not repeat them in the future.
There is something good in all seeming failures. You are not to see that now. Time will reveal it. Be patient.
Crave for a thing, you will get it. Renounce the craving, the object will follow you by itself.
Complete peace equally reigns between two mental waves.
The harder the struggle, the more glorious the triumph. Self-realization demands very great struggle.
There is no end of craving. Hence contentment alone is the best way to happiness. Therefore, acquire contentment.
Life is a pilgrimage. The wise man does not rest by the roadside inns. He marches direct to the illimitable domain of eternal bliss, his ultimate destination.
Moral values, and a culture and a religion, maintaining these values are far better than laws and regulations.
Always do good to others. Be selfless. Mentally remove everything and be free. This is divine life.“
- Swami Sivananda Saraswati
