Words of Wisdom by Swami Satchidananda
- Don't Run After Anything
"Don't run after anything. Be content. A contented
man is a king of kings; a contented woman is the
queen of queens. She is the empress, because she
never wants anything. Who is the real king? Who is
the real queen? The one who never wants anything.
Even an emperor, if he wants to conquer another
country, still wants something. You are bound by
your possessions; the fewer possessions, the freer
you are. When you have no possessions, you just
fly high in the air, as light as possible. Every
desire is an anchor that pulls you down.
"God bless you. OM Shanti, Shanti, Shanti."
