Each person is “a house with four rooms”

I have just bought the second volume of the autobiography of the lovely writer, Rumer Godden, who lived most of her life in India. It is called A House with Four Rooms. I quote her dedication at the front of the book:

”There is an Indian proverb or axiom that says that everyone is a house with four rooms, a physical, a mental, an emotional and a spiritual. Most of us tend to live in one room most of the time but, unless we go into every room every day, even if only to keep it aired, we are not a complete person.”
