You have to grow from the inside out.

None can teach you,

none can make you spiritual.

There is no other teacher but your own soul.

तदा द्रष्ट् स्वरूऩऽवस्थानभ  ॥ ३  ॥
tada drashtuh svaroope avasthanam


English translation -At that time (the time of concentration) the seer (the
Purasa) rests in his own (unmodified) state.


meaning – As soon as the waves have stopped, and the lake has become
quiet, we see the ground below the lake. So with the mind;
when it is calm, we see what our own nature is; we do not mix
ourself but remain our own selves.

 

Patanjali,  The Yog Sutra – Swami Vivekanand             

Stay happy, healthy and safe – 15

आत्मानं सततं रक्षेत्।

ātmānaṃ satataṃ rakṣet।

One must save oneself under any circumstances.

हर परिस्थति में अपनी, स्वंय की सुरक्षा जरुर करें।

Happiness

When I Asked God for Strength
He Gave Me Difficult Situations to Face
When I asked God for intelligence
He Gave Me Puzzles to Solve.
When I Asked God for Happiness
He Showed Me Some Unhappy People
When I Asked God for Wealth
He Showed Me How to Work Hard
When I Asked God for Favors
He Showed Me Opportunities to Work Hard
When I Asked God for Peace
He Showed Me How to Help Others
God Gave Me Nothing I Wanted
He Gave Me Everything I Needed.

Swami Vivekanand
