The body is the temple of the individual, so whatever happens in that temple is the concern of the individual. So too, the world is the body of the Lord, and all that happens in it, good or bad, is His concern. From the observed fact of the individual and the body, know the truth of the unobservable fact of the Lord and the world. The relationship of the individual and the Lord can be grasped by everyone who acquires three chief instruments: (1) a mind unsullied by attachment and hatred, (2) a speech unsullied by falsehood and (3) a body unsullied by violence. Joy and peace do not inhere in external objects; they are in you yourself. But in your foolishness, you search for them outside yourself in a world from which you are bound to depart, today or tomorrow. Try to know the essence of everything, the eternal truth. Try to experience the love that is God itself. Discriminate at every turn, accepting what is true and discarding the rest. (Prema Vahini, Ch 19)
