Understand the World - Sri Swami Satchidananda

“When we understand the ups and downs of the world in the proper way, we will see that it’s up to us to understand this and raise above it all. Then, you can ride over the waves and enjoy them. You will say, ‘Oh, these waves are the nature of the world; they will not attack me.’ That is the knowledge we want. Then, you won’t get upset over anything. Otherwise, what is the purpose of all this Yoga to balance the mind? When everything is balanced already, why should you balance yourself? When you understand that pain and pleasure are two sides of one coin, then you understand them in the right light and no longer suffer. So it is up to us to raise ourselves above the ups and downs.”
