Lust, anger, and greed are three impurities of the mind. Algae that covers the surface of water represents the veil of ignorance. We, too, have impurities covering our crystal-clear minds. The restless tossing of the mind comes from these impurities. They serve a purpose. So, we have a challenge to overcome. We can enjoy our minds when they are free from impurities. Now, if you cannot get rid of them, like me, at least know that they are illusory. They are not real. They come and go. Sometimes, for no reason, these impurities appear. Tell them, “I am already a weak person. I cannot get rid of you. Lust, anger, and greed may stay for a few minutes, but, please, do not make me your slave. Please do not stay too long. Lust, please come for a short time, when I am in Miami Beach. Anger, please come to me when someone takes advantage of me. Greed, please come when I need the motivation to expand my business. You all are my guests and are welcome. My true friend is my peaceful mind. So, come, and we will enjoy each other’s company. I will leave you at the airport when it is your time to go.” — Satish Daryanani
