Thursday Quote

To be childlike is good; but to be childish is not good.

To do simple tapas is good; but to spoil the health by mortification is not good.

To be devotional is good; but to be emotional is not good.

To have vairagya is good; but to expose the body to cold wind is not good.

-Swami Sivananda


  1. So less = more...

    Have a really great week in NYC!

    Thank you!
