Thought of the day

As far as it lies in your power, do good to others. Do not sow fear or inflict pain on others or promote anxiety or grief. If you take pleasure in the pain of others, you only scotch the divinity in you and bring to light the demonic natures in man. The Lord resides in all ? ""Ishwara sarva bhoothaanam? - He is in you, as much as in the other, whom you are harming. Know this and give up all efforts to ruin others. You cannot help another ? you can only help yourself by that act. You do not harm another; you only harm yourself by any wicked action. The outer attachments and nature may be different, but the inner reality in you is the same as in the 'other'.
