17th September

How nice it is to be alone!
When among others, there is fear.
There is no fear when alone.

There are many different streams of thought and different situations.
Some people are alone and unhappy in company.
Some are happy in company and unhappy when alone.

If one learns to savour the secret of solitude, then the very ideas of happiness and unhappiness will undergo change.
The one in whom the feelings of attachment, aversion, delusion, etc., are dominant, he can not find solitude even on the Himalayas.
The one who has subdued the emotions of attachment, aversion etc., can live in solitude even in the midst of a bustling cosmopolitan city.
