Satchidananda Sutras 2nd Edition- by Sri Swami Satchidananda, Cover Art by Peter Max
A collection of hundreds of "jewels from the teachings of Sri Swami Satchidananda" short quotes organized by subject and representing many or his seminal teachings. This book was published in honor of his Mahasamadhi (leaving the body) in 2002.
“We often want someone or something to bring us
happiness, but happiness that comes from the
outside is mixed with unhappiness. If something
makes you happy, it is a borrowed happiness, and
when it is no longer the way you want it to be, you
are no longer happy.
One of the main teachings of Yoga is to free yourself
from depending on people, possessions, and events
for your happiness, and to realize and experience the
true happiness that comes from within.”
