Swami Sivananda

He is the wise man who has real education regarding the nature of the world, the nature of the mind; and who knows “What is Sattva Guna(pure quality)?” “What is Rajo Guna(activity)? “ What is Tamo Guna(inertia)?”, and at which time which Guna is operating, who is able to find out “Why am I miserable in spite of my possession and riches?” He should know which Vritti(a wave in the mind-lake) is tormenting him at any time; and he should be able to remove this Vritti just as you remove a pebble in your shoe which afflicts your foot.

There is no such thing as renunciation, if it is to be properly understood. You are renouncing only an inadequate idea that you have about things, for the sake of a higher.

- Swami Krishnananda
