All that we encounter in life are just temporary phases, different stages, various scenes in the drama of life. They come and go. Don’t let your mind get affected by these things. Samatvam yoga ucyate: Equanimity of mind is Yoga. You can always maintain that. This what you call purity of heart. “Blessed are the pure in heart, for they shall see God,” says the scripture. What is purity? Staying neutral, not taking sides, keeping your calm, that is the real secret of healthy and happy living. It’s possible. And it’s not the monopoly of only a few people, ascetics living in the Himalayas, growing a long beard. You can do that. Everybody can do that. It’s our birthright. I really want you all to enjoy that peace.
