The great German poet, Goethe, was once asked by a friend what he would suggest as a daily exercise for spiritual betterment. He said:

"I would like to read a noble poem.
I would like to see a beautiful picture.
I would like to hear a bit of inspiring music.
I would like to meet a great soul.
And for my fellow men I would like to say a few sensible words."

There are one thousand beautiful things which touch our senses daily. However, we become prisoners to our own whims and fancies, some even destructive. Bearing in mind the maxim, "Let noble thoughts come to me from all sides", I intend to present some beautiful and noble gems now and then on the India Digest.
