02 Jul Dr. Jayadeva Talking on ‘Asteya’ (Non-Stealing)
The topic for the English Satsang on Sunday, 29th June, 2014 was ‘Asteya.‘ (Non-Stealing)
Following is the transcript of the speech made by Dr. Jayadeva Yogendra on the topic.
Listen to the Audio:
“Taking things that belong to us and taking things that don’t. Now unfortunately, the desire is to take things that don’t belong and we feel greedy. Behind that, naturally there is this feeling that I am taking something that doesn’t belong to me. And that is a feeling that keeps on growing. The other feeling that I should have cultivated is to (give) things that belong to me; do some work and let the benefits go to the other person, and like that. But we don’t do like that. We hate. I know of good people who do good work and hand over the benefits to people who deserve and they don’t even let others know. Many years later the fact is revealed. I would consider that as a better way of giving away rather than holding things that don’t belong to me, but to which I falsely try to hang on to.”
– Dr. Jayadeva Yogendra
