"Let not world-objects be your mind’s master. Let them be, if at all, subservient to the mind. To be spiritual is not to look for one’s delight and fulfillment in the objects of the world. The mind that causes delight through any object can also provide delight without such an object. Delight in reality belongs to the mind alone. It is verily mind’s own gift."

Q:

Is it novel or right if one gets into spirituality just because he is vexed with the way life is going on. Even though it may be good, does it have acceptance?

Poojya Swamiji Replies:

Spirituality is a response to the quest of intelligence. It is a prerogative of Intelligence. It seeks to uncover the Supreme Reality. The resulting revelation has all the blessings and fulfilment to bestow.

 

Spirituality is equally a redress of all distresses of the mind. It gives lightness, peace, contentment and fullness. Who will not need and cherish these?

 

If your vexation has other reliefs, strive to have them. Or else, seek spirituality. In so doing, there is nothing wrong. Instead it is all right, proper and harmonious.
