Words of Wisdom by Swami Satchidananda
- Dig Deep
"I see people running after different practices
and teachings constantly: One day they practice
this, one day they practice that, and they read
all the books. It can get complicated. Sri Ramakrishna
said that wherever you dig, you get water; there's
not even a single place where you can't get water,
only the depth might vary. But you have to dig in
one place. If you keep on changing the place, even
after you've dug 15 wells, you'll still have no water.
If you had stuck to one place and had dug deeply
there, you would have gotten water. There's water
everywhere, no doubt. Similarly, every teacher who
realized the truthas well as every scripturetells
you how he or she found it out. What you follow is
immaterial, but follow one thing at a time.
"God bless you. Om Shanthi, Shanthi, Shanthi."

- "When even one virtue becomes our nature, the mind becomes clean and tranquil. Then there is no need to practice meditation; we will automatically be meditating always."
