An Inspirational Thought for Each Day

We Are All Learning

Let us not deny anybody just because he or she follows a certain path or doesn’t follow a certain path. Ultimately we are all learning. If anyone is interested in knowing what practices you are doing, talk about it; explain how you have benefited, but don’t try to persuade another to do, the same thing.

That is what is meant by the Biblical saying, “Ask and it shall be given.” You don’t have to go and teach anyone. If someone asks, simply share what you know. If that person wants to do the same thing, fine. If not, if he or she wants to follow another path, that’s fine too. With such an attitude you will learn to love everyone, respect everyone, and there will be harmony in your life.

About the author

Sri Swami Satchidananda

Sri Swami Satchidananda was one of the great Yoga masters to bring the classical Yoga tradition to the West in the 1960s. He taught Yoga postures and meditation, and introduced students to a vegetarian diet and a more compassionate lifestyle. During this period of cultural awakening, iconic pop artist Peter Max and a small circle of his artist friends invited Swamiji to extend an intended two-day visit to New York City, so they could learn from him the secret of finding physical health, mental peace, and spiritual enlightenment.
