"In Sadhana you look at life as a whole and do not isolate events. You become an observer of life. in Sadhana you do not have to give up anything or attain anything."
"One has to learn to live with oneself instead of running after ideals, away from one's centre...why should there be any aims and ideals in life?...One has to discipline the mind not to compare itself with others. The holiness contained in you has no chance to express itself if you are busy with the struggle of running away from yourself"
