Swami Sivananda

For the right man all systems are useful and necessary. Why should you count peloles on the river bed? Your business is to drink water if you are thirsty. Go to a big factory. Watch. The huge machinery is just an inert mass of steel. The one switch hidden in a small case somewhere in a corner is the real doer. The whole factory is set in motion by just switching on the little switch. What appears huge to your external vision has really no strength. It is nothing and has no intrinsic value of its own. It is the Lord's power that works through all. Therefore, surrender to His Will and rest in peace. He will look after you. You need not at all worry.

We must always be on the lookout, in what way can we lessen the suffering of others, in what way can we try to increase the happiness of all beings? And this is not to be done in some distant world where people are suffering, but immediately, in your own environment, in your house itself, within your neighbourhood.

- Swami Chidananda
