"What is pleasure for you is pain for another man. What is pleasure for you now is pain after some time. The first two cups of milk give you pleasure. The third cup induces disgust, nausea, and retching. Milk does not give pleasure during fever. Therefore, pleasure is not in the objects, but in the imagination or inclination of the mind. Pleasure and pain, beauty and ugliness, are all false imaginations of the mind. Mind is a false, illusory product. Conceptions of the mind also must, therefore, be false. Pleasure and pain are in the mind only. It is subjective."

'This self-cleansing becomes difficult for the average man, because it is a subjective process, wherein each has to cleanse himself.
 Hence moral living, ethical standards, *religious *virtues and cultural *values are often discussed; many people talk about them, but very few come to live them."

"A meditative mind always thinks positively. When one becomes positive, the energy level and capacity to focus on the present will be high. This enables one to do the activities with clarity and confidence. For such a person with positive approach and attitude success is natural, not an effort!
Have a blessed day!

“Live according to Nature, runs the maxim of the West; but according to what nature, the nature of the body or the nature which exceeds the body? This first we ought to determine.”

"Real happiness is within you. It is in the Atman. It is subjective. It manifests when the mind is concentrated. When the Indriyas are withdrawn from the objects outside, when the mind is one-pointed, when there is Vasanakshaya and Manonasa, when you become desireless and thoughtless, Atmic bliss begins to dawn, spiritual Ananda begins to thrill. The musk is in the navel of the deer, but it runs here and there to smell it. The chain is in the neck of the damsel, but she runs hither and thither in search of it."

"Man is the maker of his own world, and if today the world is an ugly place, it is because he himself is ugly. Cleanse your face with the soft towel of religion, and you will find that the brilliance in the world is but a reflection of the brilliance within you."

"You are love and you need to share that love. Life is a sharing of love, it is loving the body, loving oneself, loving others, loving God, loving nature, loving work. That energy of love in the end purifies us and helps us to go forward. But while the belief exists that love has to be linked to fear and suffering, we will be blocked and will put a brake to the flow of pure love."
