Words of Wisdom


Man cannot always think of matter however pleasurable it may be.

-- Swami Vivekananda

Every religion is only the evolving of God out of the material man, and the same God is inspirer of all of them.

-- Swami Vivekananda


Hindu religion commands each to self-realization and not just in believing. Believing is not knowing, not realizing, not experiencing, and not personally discovering the glory of God. It exhorts you to become perfect, be divine, reach God, and see God. It is this reaching, seeing, and becoming perfect as the Father in Heaven constitutes the religion of the Hindus.

-- Swami Vivekananda


Remember that we are children of immortal bliss, joy is our life, and infinite is our nature.

-- Swami Vivekananda


If you do not feel it, look carefully for you have not limited yourself and created emptiness which you are working hard to fill from outside. The outside has boundaries and is finite and cannot fill the infinite within you. You can only fill this gap from the treasure within you. Atman is your source of strength and is the power within you. It is its identity with the physical you that limits it (as jivatma).

-- Swami Vivekananda


What is real? That which never changes, the Self of man, the Self behind the universe.”

Life is an opportunity for celebration, self-discovery, and realization of its potential. There is something in us that is pure, perfect, eternal, and divine.”

-- Swami Vivekananda


Where shall we find God if we cannot see Him in our own hearts and in every living being?

-- Swami Vivekananda


We say that if a temple, or a symbol, or an image helps you to realize the Divinity within, you are welcome to it. Have two hundred images if you like. If certain forms and formulas help you to realize the Divine, God speed you; have, by all means, whatever forms, and whatever temples, and whatever ceremonies you want to bring you nearer to God. But do not quarrel about them; the moment you quarrel, you are not getting Godward, you are going backward, towards the Brutes.

-- Swami Vivekananda


A drop in the ocean partakes of the greatness of its parent, although it is unconscious of it. But it is dried up as soon as it enters upon an existence independent of the ocean. We do not exaggerate when we say that life is mere a bubble.

I am but a poor struggling soul yearning to be wholly truthful and wholly nonviolent in thought, word, and deed, but never failing to reach the ideal which I know to be true. It is a painful climb, but the pain of it is a positive pleasure to me. Each step upward makes me feel stronger and more fit for the next.

-- Mahatma Gandhi


What is Truth? A difficult question; but I have solved it for myself by saying that it is what the ‘voice within’ tells you.

-- Mahatma Gandhi


Prayer needs no speech. It is in itself independent of any sensuous effort. I have not the slightest doubt that prayer is an unfailing means of cleansing the heart of passions. But it must be combined with the utmost humility.

-- Mahatma Gandhi


All the religions of the world, while they may differ in other respects, unitedly proclaim that nothing lives in this world but Truth.

-- Mahatma Gandhi


Anger and intolerance are the enemies of correct understanding.

-- Mahatma Gandhi


Do not care for doctrines, do not care for dogmas or sects or churches or temples. They count for little compared with the essence of existence in each man which is spirituality; and the more the man develops it, the more power he has for good. Earn that first, acquire that, and criticize no one; for all doctrines and creeds have some good in them. Show by your lives that religion does not mean words or names or sects, but that it means spiritual realization. Only those can understand who have felt. Only those who have attained to spirituality can communicate it to others, can be great teachers of mankind. They alone are the powers of light.

-- Swami Ramakrishna


If you first fortify yourself with the true knowledge of the Universal Self, and then live in the midst of wealth and worldliness, surely they will in no way affect you.

-- Swami Ramakrishna


The magnetic needle always points to the north, and hence it is that sailing vessel does not lose her direction. So long as the heart of man is directed towards God, he cannot be lost in the ocean of worldliness.

-- Swami Ramakrishna


The ideal man of India is ... the free man of spirit, who has attained insight into the universal source by rigid discipline and practice of disinterested virtues, who has freed himself from the prejudices of his time and place.

-- S. Radhakrishnan, Scholar and Philosopher, Former President of India


Who looks outside, dreams. Who looks inside awakens.

-- Carl Gustav Jung


If you want to be free, Get to know your real self. It has no form, no appearance, No root, no basis, no abode, But is lively and buoyant. It responds with versatile facility, But its function cannot be located. Therefore when you look for it, You become further from it; When you seek it You turn away from it all the more.

-- Linji


This silence is worth More than a thousand lives, This freedom worth More than all the empires on earth. To glimpse that truth within yourself, For even just a moment, is worth More than all heavens, all worlds, All this, and all that.

-- Jalaluddin Rumi

If your bonds be not broken whilst living, what hope of deliverance in death?

Witnessing is the way. Do whatsoever you are doing but remain a witness. Watch it, observe it, continue to remember yourself. Walking on the road, remember that there is a point inside you which is not walking, which has never walked, which cannot walk with you. It has no legs to walk. That point is your center. Through that center you will come to know the reality.

Just remember one thing, just the one thing that is the only quality of the Buddha - witnessing. Witness that you are not the body. Witness that you are not the mind. Witness that you are not the other subtle bodies, layer upon layer. You are only a witness, nothing else. The moment you are simply a witness, you are a Buddha... But first make sure that you are simply a witness.

-- Osho
