****** Quotes from Satsang ******
If only one knows what it is he truly loves, if only he knows That in which his true happiness lies, if he knows the purpose of life, if reading scripture passages, meeting with Sages, etc., he knows what he is coming face to face with, if only he sees what this opportunity in life is, there are no more questions about effort. Adi Sanakara says, “He who strives, realizes.” What is the nature of that striving? It is the essential Knowledge. The very idea that effort would be divorced from love and joy is an indication that one has not striven, one has not actually practiced. He, who practices the joyful practice of the nature of this essential Knowledge, knows.
