Subject: Chains

"First we are bound by chains of Samasara.
Then we are bound by the Golden Chains of spiritual practice."

Swami Chetananda head of the Vedanta Society / RamaKrishan Math in USA in answer to a question on practice and Samadhi.


Each of us has our own seasons.

There is a season for practice.

There is a season for experience.

There is a season for realization.

There is a season when all things drop away.

With grace, we live the natural life.

A life of sanity.

A life of compassion.

A life of wisdom, devoid of sectarianism and bigotry.

Do not become attached to any one season.

Let the truth, the dharma, that place of knowing that is in each one of us be our guide.

Let us learn to understand this truth that is and has always been taught by Ishvara, the true teacher, our very own self - the Sat Guru.

Mike C
