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 Quote n5648 | 

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 Quote n5635 | 

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 Quote n5624 | 

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 Quote n5618 | 

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 Quote n5605 | 

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 Quote n5598 |

Hinduism Quote n5562 | 

Y ou can only stop the flow of thoughts by refusing to have any interest in it.

Hinduism Quote n5552 | 

N o one succeeds without effort. Those who succeed owe their success to perseverance.

Hinduism Quote n5526 | 

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 Quote n5515 | 

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

Hinduism Quote n5502 | 

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 Quote n5490 | 

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 Quote n5489 |

Hinduism Quote n5442 | 

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 Quote n5440 | 

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 Quote n5435 | 

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

Hinduism Quote n5434 | 

T here is neither Past nor Future. There is only the Present.

Hinduism Quote n5399 | 

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

Hinduism Quote n5398 | 

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 Quote n5385 |
