“There is tension in speaking and there is tension is in your coming here and listening. Tension is there all the time. Finally, it is your attitude that matters. If you take life as it comes – no tension; and if you take every event in life as a great event, challenge, tension is there. We have to learn how to accept. Otherwise we are always trying to get ready and face and that is causing tension. We have never learnt it till the end that a balanced mind, which carries out its activities, does its job, can become relaxed. But a mind which is not ready, always trying to prepare itself, face situations, rise up, achieve excellence, gets into tension. We have to accept life and it can be of great help. Accept it as it is and do your best.”

– Dr. Jayadeva Yogendra
