Some people are envious of the high standard of living experienced by people living in rich nations, but the poverty of India is much more congenial to the good life than the luxurious and vainglorious life of the west. The sea has a vast expanse of water, but can it quench the thirst of man? Similarly, however much riches and comfort a person may possess, if they have not cultivated detachment, all they’ve accumulated is but sheer waste. Detachment from sensual pleasures and objective pursuits helps the growth of Love towards God and the Godly. When you realise that God is in you, you will value yourself much more, for when you know that the piece of ‘glass’ you picked up is diamond, you will secure it in an iron safe, isn’t it? Similarly know that each one of you are carefully carved by a sculptor to become a charming idol of God, and conduct yourself accordingly.
