Weekly Words of Wisdom by Swami Satchidananda
- "What is my essential teaching? How to become easeful, peaceful and
useful. Make your life easeful. Whenever you disturb your ease you say
that you are dis-eased. You had ease before, you disturbed it, you are
dis-eased. Remove the disturbance and get back to ease. So physically,
become easeful. Mentally become peaceful. You make yourself easeful
and peaceful. Only then can you be useful. Your goal should be, `I
make myself easeful and peaceful so that I can be useful to others.'
Remember these three words: easeful, peaceful and useful. That's the
goal of all religions. Even the fellow that doesn't have any religion
wants to be easeful, peaceful and useful.
God bless you. Om Shanthi, Shanthi, Shanthi."

- What Makes You Beautiful?
"The more you worry about your weight,
the more sick you become. The worry itself
causes increase in weight because many
people eat a lot when they worry. The more
you think of weight, the more weight you
will have. As you think, so you become.
Worry is the most dangerous disease. Keep
the mind healthy always. If someone doesn't
want to like you because of your weight, that
person is interested only in your flesh, not
in your qualities. What will make a person
beautiful? The beauty of wisdom that dawns
through tranquility of mind. We have enough
troubles and worries. Yogis should not be
bothered with weight issues. Let us think
of more important things in life that could
bring peace, joy and harmony.
"God bless you. OM Shanti, Shanti, Shanti."
