"Let not world-objects be your mind’s master. Let them be, if at all, subservient to the mind. To be spiritual is not to look for one’s delight and fulfillment in the objects of the world. The mind that causes delight through any object can also provide delight without such an object. Delight in reality belongs to the mind alone. It is verily mind’s own gift."

Swami Bhoomananda Tirtha


The first emotional enrichment you should have is fondness. Have love for people, including those you disagree with. Again, it is not enough to have love alone. Express it with concern. Love with a proper concern becomes sympathy. Further, in pursuit of love and sympathy, you must be able to sacrifice willingly and lovingly. Others should feel and know that you are fond of them. Only then individual saadhana begets the societal dimension to become collective saadhana as well.
