"Today belongs to us. Yesterday was. Tomorrow will be. Every day is bursting with opportunities for us to do and to serve, to act and to express, to love and to live. We must make use of these lush chances and diligently make our life rich, fruitful and useful for others at all times." - Pujya Gurudev Swami Chinmayananda.
