“Live quietly in the moment and see the beauty of all before you. The future will take care of itself......”
Yogananda, Autobiography of a Yogi

“Be as simple as you can be; you will be astonished to see how uncomplicated and happy your life can become.”
Paramahansa Yogananda

“You may control a mad elephant;
You may shut the mouth of the bear and the tiger;
Ride the lion and play with the cobra;
By alchemy you may learn your livelihood;
You may wander through the universe incognito;
Make vassals of the gods; be ever youthful;
You may walk in water and live in fire;
But control of the mind is better and more difficult.”
Paramahansa Yogananda, Autobiography of a Yogi
