Thursday Quote

"Even after enlightenment, you’re still subject to your Parabda Karma, you’re still subject to some impressions from the past. Not only in simple matters like making food choices, but in dealing with anything that’s already there. The main thing is this: you have to see that it is only the body and mind that are passing through and being affected by any given circumstances, not the Real You. Do what you can to acquire Self Knowledge and this will help you make progress. Who is full of doubts, suffering, depressed? It’s the body and mind passing through the effects from your previous deeds. Pass through this suffering gracefully and try never to complain."

-Sri Dharma Mittra
