Every individual has a natural desire to look beautiful and there is nothing wrong in it. Youth and particularly young girls often spend hours before the mirror. A saint once said in his discourse that, “Beauty is only skin deep”.

A young man stood up and told him, “We are interested only in external beauty. What have we to do with the inner muscles and bones?” In general, the common impression is that beauty depends on the external appearance and the qualities of the skin. But this external beauty depends on the health of the body and mind. Even a beautiful person does not appear so when he is tense or afflicted with an ailment. Hence to look beautiful, it is important to maintain a healthy body and mind.

However, even our mind gets vibrations when we are surrounded by the beautiful people around us and we tend to be more attentive, receptive to the beautiful ideas, thoughts and have easy attractions . So, the External Beauty and the Inner Beauty cannot be looked at separately. In today’s world beauty does matter. It really impacts us to the extent that it’s detrimental to ignore it.  A beautiful encounter is something which makes us feel warm and glowy inside, similar to the way food is presented to us in a restaurant, or a stunning sunset, or a note card in a store that has the perfect picture on it. Being blessed with a beautiful body, face and mind has a lasting effect on our self confidence and we generate extra energy to encounter this shallow outer world.
