19  quote(s)  | Page 1 / 1




A man of faith, absorbed in faith, his senses controlled, attains
knowledge, and, knowledge attained, quickly finds supreme peace. But the
ignorant man, who is without faith, goes doubting to destruction. For the
doubting self there is neither this world, nor the next, nor joy.





Hinduism Quote n°4336 | 
Bhagavad Gita 4.39-40 

   




F or truly, I say to you, if you have faith as a grain of mustard seed, you
will move this mountain, "Move from here to there," and it will move; and
nothing will be impossible to you.





Christianity Quote n°4334 | 
Matthew 17.20 

   




R abbi Simlai said, "Six hundred and thirteen commandments were given to
Moses, 365 negative commandments, answering to the number of the days of
the year, and 248 positive commandments, answering to the number of a
man's members. Then David came and reduced them to eleven [Psalm 15].
Then came Isaiah, and reduced them to six [Isaiah 63.15]. Then came
Micah, and reduced them to three [Micah 6.8]. Then Isaiah came again, and
reduced them to two, as it is said, 'Keep ye judgment and do
righteousness.' Then came Amos, and reduced them to one, as it is said,
'Seek me and live.' Or one may say, then came Habakkuk [2.4], and reduced
them to one, as it is said, 'The righteous shall live by his faith.'"





Judaism Quote n°4332 | 
Makkot 23b-24a 

   




T hrough faith the mind and intellect find concentration;
And to the seeker are revealed all the stages of enlightenment.
Through faith one will not receive blows in the Hereafter,
Nor be subjected to death's terror.
The great, immaculate Name of God
May only be realized by one
Whose mind is firmly fixed in faith.

Through faith man meets no obstacle on the Path,
And shall proceed to his abode with God with his honor universally
proclaimed.
One with faith shall not stray into sects and byways,
But be fixed in true religion.
The great, immaculate Name of God
May only be realized by one
Whose mind is firmly fixed in faith.

Through faith man finds the Door of Liberation:
Even his relatives are liberated through him.
Through faith are both Preceptor and disciple liberated.
Says Nanak, One with faith
Need not wander about begging for divine grace.
The great, immaculate Name of God
May only be realized by one
Whose mind is firmly fixed in faith.





Sikhism Quote n°4331 | 
Japuji 12-15, M.1, p. 3 

   




T he faith of every man, O Arjuna, accords with his nature. Man is made up
of faith; as is his faith, so is he.

The threefold austerity [of body, speech, and mind] practiced with faith
by men of balanced mind, without any expectation of reward, is said to be
pure.

Without faith, whatever offering or gift is made or work done or penance
performed, it is reckoned "not-being" both now and hereafter.





Hinduism Quote n°4330 | 
Bhagavad Gita 17.3,17,28 

   




F aith is composed of the heart's intention.
Light comes through faith.
Through faith men come to prayer,
Faith in the morning, faith at noon and at the setting of the sun.
O Faith, give us faith!





Hinduism Quote n°4329 | 
Rig Veda 10.151.4-5 

   




T rust in the Lord with all your heart,
and do not rely on your own insight.
In all your ways acknowledge him
and he will make straight your paths.





Judaism Quote n°4328 | 
3.5-6 

   




T he true believers are those whose hearts are filled with awe at the
mention of God, and whose faith grows stronger as they listen to His
revelations. They put their trust in their Lord, pray steadfastly, and
give in alms of that which We have given them. Such are the true
believers. They shall be exalted and forgiven by their Lord, and a
generous provision shall be made for them.





Islam Quote n°4327 | 
Qur'an 8.2-4 

   




B y faith you shall be free and go beyond the world of death.




Buddhism Quote n°4326 | 
Sutta Nipata 1146 

   




T he sadhana of this Yoga does not proceed through any set mental teaching or prescribed forms of meditation, mantras or others, but by aspiration, by a self-concentration inwards or upwards, by self-opening to an Influence, to the Divine Power above us and its workings, to the Divine Presence in the heart and by the rejection of all that is foreign to these things. It is only by faith, aspiration and surrender that this self-opening can come.




Hinduism Quote n°3485 | 
A Practical Guide to Integral Yoga 

   




S teadfast faith is a strong tower; and for one who has faith Christ comes to be all.




Christianity / Orthodoxy Quote n°3392 | 
On the Spiritual Law: ("Philokalia (Vol. 1)", text 4, p. 110) 

   




F aith transforms the earth into a paradise.
By it our hearts are raised with the joy of our nearness to heaven.
Every moment reveals God to us.
Faith is our light in this life.
By it we know the truth without seeing it, we are put in touch with what we cannot feel, recognize what we cannot see, and view the world stripped of all its outer shell.
Faith unlocks God's treasury.
It is the key to all the vastness of His wisdom.
The emptiness of all created things is disclosed by faith, and it is by faith that God reveals Himself …

With faith,
All that is dark becomes light, and what is bitter becomes sweet.
Faith transforms ugliness into beauty, and malice into kindness.
Faith is the mother of tenderness, trust, and joy …

There is nothing faith cannot overcome;
It passes beyond all shadows and through the darkest clouds to reach the truth, which it embraces and can never be parted from.





Christianity / Catholicism Quote n°3096 | 
Ramiere, Rev. H., trans. Abandonment. New York: Benziger Brothers, 1887, pp. 112 

   




I brahim Adham said, "Faith in God will be firmly established if three veils are cast aside:
1. "feeling pleasure in possessing anything;
2. Lamenting over the loss of anything;
3. "enjoying self-praise."





Islam / Sufism Quote n°2969 | 
Essential Sufism, by James Fadiman & Robert Frager, Harper SanFrancisco, p.173 

   




S omeone asked what there was that was superior to prayer. One answer is that "the soul" of prayer is better than prayer. The second answer is that faith is better than prayer.
Prayer consists of five-times-a-day performance, whereas faith is continuous. Prayer can be dropped for a valid excuse and may be postponed by license; faith cannot be dropped for any excuse and may not be postponed by license. Again, faith without prayer is beneficial, whereas prayer without faith confers no benefit.





Islam / Sufism Quote n°2935 | 
Essential Sufism, by James Fadiman & Robert Frager, Harper SanFrancisco, p.152 

   




B elief [faith] is the knowledge of the heart, the words of the tongue, and the actions of the body.




Islam Quote n°2912 | 
Hadith, Essential Sufism, by James Fadiman & Robert Frager, Harper SanFrancisco, p.88 

   




O my Lord, if I worship You from fear of Hell, burn me in Hell; and if I worship You from hope of Paradise, exclude me from Paradise. But if I worship You for Your own sake, do not withhold from me Your Eternal Beauty.




Islam / Sufism Quote n°2910 | 
Rabia, Essential Sufism, by James Fadiman & Robert Frager, Harper SanFrancisco, p.86 

   




F or I say, through the grace given unto me, to every man that is among you, not to think of himself more highly than he ought to think; but to think soberly, according as God hath dealt to every man the measure of faith




Christianity Quote n°2791 | 
St. Paul, Romans 12:1-9 (AV), taken from the 1611 King James Version of the Bible 

   




F aith is a very strong thing, and if a man has faith and a simplicity that does not rationalize, he will be found worthy of reaching the rung of grace which is even higher than that of holy wisdom. He will be vouchsafed great and overwhelming grace in God in very blissful silence, until he will be able to bear the greatness of this silence no longer, and will cry aloud out of the fullness of his soul.




Judaism / Hassidism Quote n°2746 | 
Martin Buber’s ten rungs, collected Hassidic saying, p.24 

   




Q uestion: It is written: "And Israel saw the great hand," and further on it is written: ". . . And they believed in the Lord, and in His servant Moses." Why is this said? The question as to whether or not one believes can only be put while one does not as yet "see."
Answer: You are mistaken. It is only then that the true question can be put. Seeing the great hand does not mean that faith can be dispensed with. It is only after "seeing" that one realizes what the lack of faith means, and feels how very much one needs faith. The seeing of the great hand is the beginning of faith in that which one cannot "see."

Martin Buber’s ten rungs, collected Hassidic saying, p.13
