Words of Wisdom by Swami Satchidananda
- The Sun is Neutral
"The sun shines without any like or dislike. Some people
make use of the sun's light for their own good use; some
people make use of it for bad purposes. With the help of
the same sunlight any person can do any act, good or bad.
If you make a good act using the sunlight and if you do
something bad using the same sunlight, the blame will not
go to the sun because it's neutral, just as anything is
in nature and just as is God. God is nature and is neutral,
without likes, dislikes or desires. So, it is up to us how
we make use of what God has given to us. According to our
mental purity, we take in the pure side, we make use of it
for a better purpose. If we make use of it for a better
purpose, we are benefited. If we use it for a wrong purpose,
we are bound by that and, probably later, suffering comes.
"God bless you. OM Shanti, Shanti, Shanti."

- "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."
