Peace is within, not without by Radhanath Swami

I have seen people who live in beautiful apartments worth sometimes 5 – 6 million dollars. They have security guards and chauffeurs, but they can’t even sleep at night. They are so frustrated that they have to take sleeping pills just to forget the reality of their life. Yet society has duped them in such a crazy manner that they think they are successful and everybody should be like them.

Is this what we want?

If we find peace within ourself—whether we are beggar on the street or the prime minister—we will find peace and love everywhere and will do good for all according to our capacity. If we cannot find peace and joy within our own heart, we have nothing really very valuable to share with anybody.
