Advice given by H.H.Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi:
"Swa means ourselves, and Artha means the meaning. And Swartha also means selfishness but actually it is self, and self and self."
(Talk at Ganapatipule, 13/1/88)
"Swartha, if translated directly, it means selfishness – but ‘swa arth’. ‘Swa arth’ means … meaning of your Swa is your Self."
(Shri Krishna's Birthday, London, 15/8/81)
