Mental Equanimity can only be acquired by Effort

The most precious possession is mental equanimity; and it is the one thing you cannot give, even if you have it.  Each has to acquire it the hard way.  But, you can enlighten people on the disciplines through which mental equanimity can be gained, and santhi can be won.  It cannot be earned through a higher standard of life, bush shirts, television, sofas, air conditioners, etc.  It cannot be got through riches, through the acquisition of power and authority, through developing physical strength and endurance.  When you plan for service, remember this estimate of comparative values.  The rich, the healthy, the strong, the powerful, the influential - all are afflicted with discontent, worry, fear and anxiety.  They have no peace of mind.  Peace comes from within.


O Lord, take my love, and let it flow in fullness of devotion to Thee;
O Lord, take my hands, and let them work incessantly for Thee;
O Lord, take my soul, and let it be merged in One with Thee;
O Lord, take my mind and thoughts, and let them be in tune with Thee;
O Lord, take my everything, and let me be an instrument to work for Thee.
