33. Swami Sivananda


What is pleasure for you is pain for another man.
What is pleasure for you now is pain after some time.

The first two cups of milk give you pleasure.
The third cup induces disgust, nausea, and retching.
Milk does not give pleasure during fever.

Therefore, pleasure is not in the objects, but in the imagination or inclination of the mind.
Pleasure and pain, beauty and ugliness, are all false imaginations of the mind.
Mind is a false, illusory product.
Conceptions of the mind also must, therefore, be false.
Pleasure and pain are in the mind only.
It is subjective.
