12907What to Seek
- May 16, 2004Fro the Weekly Words of Wisdom
of H.H. Sri Gurudev Swami Satchidananda
"The message of all the great religions is to feel that Divine within
which is peace and joy. Didn't the Bible say, 'Blessed are the pure in
heart. They shall see God'? It is the same message that is found in
almost all the scriptures. The Bhagavad Gita says, 'Samatwam Yoga
ucchyate' which means 'Equanimity is Yoga.' The sage Patanjali says,
'Yogaha chitta vritti nirodaha' or 'Yoga is the cessation of all the
mental impressions.' Once you could accomplish that you would remain
in your own true nature.
What else do we need? If we have the inner peace and joy we have
everything. If we do not have that, even though we have all the things
of the world, we have nothing. You will not even know how to use those
So let us seek that inner peace, inner joy, first."
God bless you. Om Shanthi, Shanthi, Shanthi
