Swami Balendu's Quotations

Freedom

If you believe that a one-night-stand, an ‘open relationship’ or homosexuality is morally wrong, you don’t need to have such relationships or be gay! You cannot however limit other people’s freedom by telling them of your ideas of morality and what is right or wrong.

Fear

Fear is an illusion and it spoils your life. If you are afraid, you cannot enjoy. You are fine and you are able to cope with the situations that life brings you. Have trust in whatever is out there in this universe. The whole world is there for you, not against you. Let your fear go. Live.

Spiritual

Spirituality does not tell you to break the hearts of others by breaking all bonds. Of course you can go the path of spirituality with the relations that God gave to you. You can take them along on your way instead of breaking their hearts.

Religion

Dharma is not religion. Dharma is the tasks that I want to do from my heart, not something that I have to do because I was born to Hindu parents.

Parenting

Isn’t it sad when you practically feel your child has decreased the quality of your relationship with your spouse? That you have to take ‘time off’, childfree time to be with your partner? You cannot enjoy your life as a family well because you experience your time with your child as a burden!

Celibacy

Religion tells you that you are allowed to laugh and cry, to feel hungry and thirsty but not to feel horny. Is this not a natural feeling? How can you live normally and naturally while being disrespectful to one of the most natural feelings in this world? Celibacy is the most unnatural concept that you can think of.

Superstition

Superstitious people don’t trust in themselves or their abilities and decide that it was not their work or talent that brought them money and success but some mysterious force. Obviously this makes them insecure, as they never know when their luck could leave them - so they have to keep on following superstition, trying to remain successful!

Ego

There are people who are very impressed when you make your talk complicated and others who like that. They like it complicated because it satisfies their ego to understand it.

Decision

It is always your decision how you want to spend your day and your evening. If you want to be angry or if you want to have fun, the decision is yours!

Love

No, you cannot love God even approximately as much as your family! How could you? He is not like your mother or father who take you in their arms for security or comfort. It is your mother's smell, her noises, the feeling of her touch that becomes imprinted in your mind and most importantly in your heart. Not God’s smell, noise or touch. It is impossible that you ever have the great love for God that you have for your family!
