38  quote(s)  | Page 1 / 2




W hen the men, the embodied beings treat each other with equal respect and have good brotherly feelings amongst themselves, great peace and harmony abound. Then all this earth shines like one house. The whole world shines like the one dwelling house of the entire human family.


Hinduism



I f other thoughts rise, one should, without attempting to complete them, enquire, ‘To whom did they arise?’, it will be known ‘To me’. If one then enquires ‘Who am I?’, the mind (power of attention) will turn back to its source. By repeatedly practising thus, the power of the mind to abide in its source increases.


Hinduism



T he mind will subside only by means of the enquiry ‘Who am I?’. The thought ‘Who am I?’, destroying all other thoughts, will itself finally be destroyed like the stick used for stirring the funeral pyre.


Hinduism



W hat is called mind is a wondrous power existing in Self. It projects all thoughts. If we set aside all thoughts and see, there will be no such thing as mind remaining separate; therefore, thought itself is the form of the mind. Other than thoughts, there is no such thing as the mind.


Hinduism



I f you hold this feeling of ‘I’ long enough and strongly enough, the false ‘I’ will vanish leaving only the unbroken awareness of the real, immanent ‘I’, consciousness itself.


Hinduism



T he explorers seek happiness in finding curiosities, discovering new lands and undergoing risks in adventures. They are thrilling. But where is pleasure found? Only within. Pleasure is not to be sought in the external world.


Hinduism




T here is nothing like ‘within’ or ‘without.’ Both mean either the same thing or nothing.


Hinduism



R emain still, with the conviction that the Self shines as everything yet nothing, within, without, and everywhere.


Hinduism






K now that the eradication of the identification with the body is charity, spiritual austerity and ritual sacrifice; it is virtue, Divine union and devotion; it is heaven, wealth, peace and truth; it is grace; it is the state of Divine silence; it is the deathless death; it is jnana, renunciation, final liberation and bliss.


Hinduism



T he pure mind is itself Brahman; it therefore follows that Brahman is not other than the mind of the sage.


Hinduism



T ime is only an idea. There is only the Reality. Whatever you think it is, it looks like that. If you call it time, it is time. If you call it existence, it is existence, and so on. After calling it time, you divide it into days and nights, months, years, hours, minutes, etc. Time is immaterial for the Path of Knowledge. But some of these rules and discipline are good for beginners.


Hinduism



I llusion? To whom is the illusion? Find it out. Then illusion will vanish. Generally people want to know about illusion and do not examine to whom it is. It is foolish. Illusion is outside and unknown. But the seeker is considered to be known and is inside. Find out what is immediate, intimate, instead of trying to find out what is distant and unknown.


Hinduism




I f you go on working with the light available, you will meet your Master, as he himself will be seeking you.


Hinduism



A im high, aim at the highest, and all lower aims are thereby achieved. It is looking below on the stormy sea of differences that makes you sink. Look up, beyond these and see the One Glorious Real, and you are saved.


Hinduism



I f the mind falls asleep, awaken it. Then if it starts wandering, make it quiet. If you reach the state where there is neither sleep nor movement of mind, stay still in that, the natural (real) state.


Hinduism



R ealisation is not acquisition of anything new nor is it a new faculty. It is only removal of all camouflage.


Hinduism




T here is neither creation nor destruction, Neither destiny nor free will, Neither path nor achievement. This is the final truth.


Hinduism



H ave faith in God and in yourself; that will cure all. Hope for the best, expect the best, toil for the best and everything will come right for you in the end.


Hinduism



W anting to reform the world without discovering one’s true Self is like trying to cover the world with leather to avoid the pain of walking on stones and thorns. It is much simpler to wear shoes.


Hinduism
