Weekly Words of Wisdom from Swami Satchidananda
- "There is a simple saying you hear nowadays:
`No pain, no gain.' It means that obstacles
are painful, but there is gain afterwards.
Life comes with a lot of problems. There is
another saying, `Adversity is a blessing in
disguise.' If you remember that, you will
face all the suffering that comes to you;
you will welcome the suffering, you will even
invite the suffering to come. `Blessed are the
sufferers,' the Bible says. So if you are keen
on your own growth, you will accept everything
that comes to you, and use it for your benefit.
You don't write off a person who hurts you. If
you do that, the same suffering will come again,
in another form. So don't try to avoid it. Face it.
Pass the test.
God bless you. Om Shanthi, Shanthi, Shanthi."
