Words of Wisdom by Swami Satchidananda
- Convert Everything into Selfless Acts
"A slogan I have is: `no appointment, no disappointment.'
That doesn't mean that you should not make any
appointments, otherwise you would not be able to
go and get a haircutbut, make no appointments based
on your selfishness. Even taking a Yoga class or going
to a Yoga retreat should not be a selfish act. You are
going there to reform yourself, to grow, to serve
othersand that is a selfless act, because your ultimate
goal is to serve others. With that goal, you can eat,
you can sleep, you can live comfortably, you can study,
you can become an eminent doctornot to hoard millions,
but to serve. All the professions can be converted
into selfless acts.
"God bless you. OM Shanti, Shanti, Shanti."
