Freedom does not mean doing whatever one likes. Freedom is that state of consciousness that does things in the light of the harmony that it has to maintain between the subject and the object. Otherwise, it could not be freedom. You are free only when moving in right directions. Your consciousness should operate properly. Only then does the question of freedom arise.

– Swami Krishnananda

Once man allows his inherent peace born of contentment to be disturbed, and makes room in his heart for greed and desires, a host of evils come on. All evils in society are due to the demon of unchecked desire.

– Sri Sri Bharati Tirtha Mahaswamigal
