Words of Wisdom by Swami Satchidananda
- Live for the Sake of Others
"Real religion is living it, living like all
things in nature, living for the sake of others.
You don't need to do anything else. Let every
breath go in and out for the benefit of the
world. When you eat a morsel of food, think
that this food is going to create a few drops
of blood in your body to build strength that
you can utilize for the benefit of others. It
is for that purpose that you are eating; it is
for that purpose you are breathing. If you go
to sleep, think, `By sleeping, I will be rested
enough to get up early in the morning to serve
others.' Living this way, your mind is always
free from all kinds of anxieties, worries,
fears and hatred.
"God bless you. OM Shanti, Shanti, Shanti."
