      "You can't see your own Self directly.
      You are the Self, but you have never seen it.
      But, God created you in His image, and wanted
      you to see your image. So, He gave you a
      built-in mirror. Do you know what that is?
      Your own mind. Your own mind is the mirror.
      That's why you say, `As the mind, so the man.'
      If the mind is clean, you will see your Self as clean.
      The Self is always clean; it never gets into any problem.
      So clean the mind, and see your Self: `Ah, I am the ever
      pure, ever clean Self.' That is Self-Realization.

      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."
