“Great convictions are the mothers of great deeds.”

“What India wants is a new electric-fire to stir afresh vigour in the national veins.”

“What I want is muscles of iron and nerves of steel, inside which dwells a mind of the same material as that of which thunderbolt is made.”

“Love is the gate of all the secrets of the universe.”

“Unselfishness is more paying, only people have not the patience to practice.”

“The perfectly unselfish man is the most successful.”

“Let us all work hard, my brethren, this is no time for sleep. On our work depends the coming of the India of the future.”

“Self-sacrifice, indeed, is the basis of all civilization.”

“ All the strength and success you want is within yourselves. Therefore make your own future.”

"TAKE UP ONE IDEA. MAKE THAT ONE IDEA YOUR LIFE THINK OF IT, DREAM OF IT, LIVE ON THAT IDEA. LET THE BRAIN, MUSCLES, NERVES, EVERY PART OF YOUR BODY, BE FULL OF THAT IDEA, AND JUST LEAVE EVERY OTHER IDEA ALONE. THIS IS THE WAY TO SUCCESS THAT IS WAY GREAT SPIRITUAL GIANTS ARE PRODUCED."

* "You have to grow from the inside out. None can teach you, none can make you spiritual. There is no other teacher but your own soul."

“ALL THE POWERS IN THE UNIVERSE ARE ALREADY OURS. IT IS WE WHO HAVE PUT OUR HANDS BEFORE OUR EYES AND CRY THAT IT IS DARK.”

“OUR DUTY IS TO ENCOURAGE EVERY ONE IN HIS STRUGGLE TO LIVE UP TO HIS OWN HIGHEST IDEA, AND STRIVE AT THE SAME TIME TO MAKE THE IDEAL AS NEAR AS

“IF FAITH IN OURSELVES HAD BEEN MORE EXTENSIVELY TAUGHT AND PRACTICED, I AM SURE A VERY LARGE PORTION OF THE EVILS AND MISERIES THAT WE HAVE WOULD HAVE VANISHED.”

"NEVER THINK THERE IS ANYTHING IMPOSSIBLE FOR THE SOUL. IT IS THE GREATEST HERESY TO THINK SO. IF THERE IS SIN, THIS IS THE ONLY SIN? TO SAY THAT YOU ARE WEAK, OR OTHERS ARE WEAK."

“THE VEDANTA RECOGNIZES NO SIN IT ONLY RECOGNIZES ERROR. AND THE GREATEST ERROR, SAYS THE VEDANTA IS TO SAY THAT YOU ARE WEAK, THAT YOU ARE A SINNER, A MISERABLE CREATURE, AND THAT YOU HAVE NO POWER AND YOU

“Stand up, be bold, be strong. Take the whole responsibility on your own shoulders, and know that you are the creator of your own destiny. All the strength and succor you want is within yourself. Therefore make your own future.”

“THERE IS NO HELP FOR YOU OUTSIDE OF YOURSELF; YOU ARE THE CREATOR OF THE UNIVERSE. LIKE THE SILKWORM YOU HAVE BUILT A COCOON AROUND YOURSELF…. BURST YOUR OWN COCOON AND COME OUT AW THE BEAUTIFUL

“IT IS OUR OWN MENTAL ATTITUDE WHICH MAKES THE WORLD WHAT IT IS FOR US. OUR THOUGHT MAKE THINGS BEAUTIFUL, OUR THOUGHTS MAKE THINGS UGLY. THE WHOLE WORLD IS IN OUR OWN MINDS. LEARN TO SEE THINGS IN THE PROPER LIGHT. FIRST, BELIEVE IN THIS WORLD, THAT THERE IS MEANING BEHIND EVERYTHING. EVERYTHING IN THE WORLD IS GOOD, IS HOLY AND BEAUTIFUL. IF YOU SEE SOMETHING EVIL, THINK THAT YOU DO NOT UNDERSTAND IT IN THE RIGHT LIGHT. THROW THE

“Hold to the idea, “I am not the mind, I see that I am thinking, I am watching my mind act,” and each day the identification of yourself with thoughts and feelings will grow less, until at last you can entirely separate yourself from the mind and actually know it to be apart from yourself.”

“Even the greatest fool can accomplish a task if it were after his or her heart. But the intelligent ones are those who can convert every work into one that suits their taste

“Each work has to pass through these stages— ridicule, opposition, and then acceptance. Those who think ahead of their time are sure to be misunderstood.”

“AS LONG AS WE BELIEVE OURSELVES TO BE EVEN THE LEAST DIFFERENT FROM GOD, FEAR REMAINS WITH US; BUT WHEN WE KNOW OURSELVES TO BE THE ONE,

Stand upon the Self, only then can we truly love the world. Take a very high stand; knowing our universal nature, we must look with perfect calmness upon all the panorama of the world.

Impurity is a mere superimposition under which your real nature has become hidden. But the real you is already perfect, already strong.

There is no help for you outside of yourself; you are the creator of the universe. Like the silkworm you have built a cocoon around yourself…. Burst your own cocoon and come out aw the beautiful butterfly, as the free soul. Then alone you will see Truth.

Our first duty is not to hate ourselves, because to advance we must have faith in ourselves first and then in God. Those who have no faith in themselves can never have faith in God.

If faith in ourselves had been more extensively taught and practiced, I am sure a very large portion of the evils and miseries that we have would have vanished.

He whom the sages have been seeking in all these places is in our own hearts; the voice that you heard was right, says Vedanta, but the direction you gave to the voice was wrong.

Never think there is anything impossible for the soul. It is the greatest heresy to think so. If there is sin, this is the only sin; to say that you are weak, or others are weak.

Our duty is to encourage every one in his struggle to live up to his own highest idea, and strive at the same time to make the ideal as near as possible to the Truth.

Take up one idea. Make that one idea your life - think of it, dream of it, live on idea. Let the brain, muscles, nerves, every part of your body, be full of that idea, and just leave every other idea alone. This is the way to success.

The moment I have realized God sitting in the temple of every human body, the moment I stand in reverence before every human being and see God in him - that moment I am free from bondage, everything that binds vanishes, and I am free.

Look upon every man, woman, and everyone as God. You cannot help anyone, you can only serve: serve the children of the Lord, serve the Lord Himself, if you have the privilege.

The Vedanta recognizes no sin it only recognizes error. And the greatest error, says the Vedanta is to say that you are weak, that you are a sinner, a miserable creature, and that you have no power and you cannot do this and that.

The will is not free - it is a phenomenon bound by cause and effect - but there is something behind the will which is free.

We are what our thoughts have made us; so take care about what you think. Words are secondary. Thoughts live; they travel far.

Be perfectly resigned, perfectly unconcerned; then alone can you do any true work. No eyes can see the real forces; we can only see the results. Put out self, forget it; just let God work, it is His business.

Religion as a science, as a study, is the greatest and healthiest exercise that the human mind can have.

Come out into the universe of Light. Everything in the universe is yours, stretch out your arms and embrace it with love. If you every felt you wanted to do that, you have felt God.

All knowledge that the world has ever received comes from the mind; the infinite library of the universe is in our own mind.

Astrology and all these mystical things are generally signs of a weak mind; therefore as soon as they are becoming prominent in our minds, we should see a physician, take good food, and rest.

There is no help for you outside of yourself; you are the creator of the universe. Like the silkworm you have built a cocoon around yourself…. Burst your own cocoon and come out aw the beautiful butterfly, as the free soul. Then alone you will see Truth.

Perfection does not come from belief or faith. Talk does not count for anything. Parrots can do that. Perfection comes through selfless work.

Our duty is to encourage every one in his struggle to live up to his own highest idea, and strive at the same time to make the ideal as near as possible to the Truth.

Even the greatest fool can accomplish a task if it were after his or her heart. But the intelligent ones are those who can convert every work into one that suits their taste.

This is the great lesson that we are here to learn through myriads of births and heavens and hells—that there is nothing to be asked for, desired for, beyond one’s spiritual Self (atman).

you think that you are bound, you remain bound; you make your bondage. If you know that you are free, you are free this mome his is knowledge, knowledge of freedom. Freedom is the goal of all nature.

Come out into the universe of Light. Everything in the universe is yours, stretch out your arms and embrace it with love. If you every felt you wanted to do that, you have felt God.

Delusion will vanish as the light becomes more and more effulgent, load after load of ignorance will vanish, and then will come a time when all else has disappeared and the sun alone shines.

Each soul is potentially divine. The goal is to manifest this divinity within by controlling nature, external and internal. Do this either by work, or worship or psychic control or philosophy – by one or more or all of these and be free.

“Never think there is anything impossible for the soul. It is the greatest heresy to think so. If there is sin, this is the only sin ? to say that you are weak, or others are weak.”

  “If faith in ourselves had been more extensively taught and practiced, I am sure a very large portion of the evils and miseries that we have would have vanished.”

Don't look back—forward, infinite energy, infinite enthusiasm, infinite daring, and infinite patience—then alone can great deeds be accomplished.

When once you consider an action, do not let anything dissuade you. Consult your heart not others and follow as it dictates.

The whole ocean is present at the back of each wave.

HOME

All differences in this world are of degree, and not kind, beacause oneness is the secret of everything.

HOME

Condemn none: if you can stretch out a helping hand, do so. If you cannot, fold your hands, bless your brothers, and let them go their own way.
HOME

Never think there is anything impossible for the soul. It is the greatest heresy to think so. If there is sin, this is the only sin; to say that you are weak, or others are weak.
HOME

This life is a hard fact; work your way through it boldly, though it may be adamantine; no matter, the soul is stronger.
HOME

The whole secret of existence is to have no fear. Never fear what will happen of you, depend on no one. Only the moment you reject all help you are free.
HOME

Fear is death, fear is sin, fear is hell, fear is wrong life. All the negative thoughts and ideas that are in the world have proceeded from this evil spirit of fear.
HOME

As long as we believe ourselves to be even the least different from God, fear remains with us; but when we know ourselves to be the One, fear goes; of what can we be afraid?

Comfort is no test of truth. Truth is often from being comfortable.

We reap what we sow. We are the makers of our own fate.

The fire that warms us can also consume us; it is not the fault of the fire.

The great secret of true success, of true happiness, is this; the man who asks for no return, the perfectly unselfish person, HOME is the most successful.

Be not Afraid of anything. You will be marvelous at work. It is fearlessness that brings heaven in a moment.

Dare to be free, dare to go as far as your thought leads you, and dare to carry that out in your life.

“Face the brutes.” That is a lesson for all life—face the terrible, face it boldly. Like the monkeys, the hardships of life fall back when we cease to flee before them.

“The earth is enjoyed by heroes”— this is the unfailing truth. Be a hero. Always say, “I have no fear.”

A few heart-whole, sincere, and energetic men and women can do more in a year than a mob in a century.

A tremendous stream is flowing toward the ocean, carrying us all along with it; and though like straws and scraps of paper we may at times float aimlessly about, in the long run we are sure to join the Ocean of Life and Bliss.

HOME

All is the Self or Brahman. The saint, the sinner, the lamb, the tiger, even the murderer, as far as they have any reality, can be nothing else, because there is nothing else.

HOME

All knowledge that the world has ever received comes from the mind; the infinite library of the universe is in our own mind.

HOME

All that is real in me is God; all that is real in God is I. The gulf between God and me is thus bridged. Thus by knowing God, we find that the kingdom of heaven is within us.

HOME

All truth is eternal. Truth is nobody’s property; no race, no individual can lay any exclusive claim to it. Truth is the nature of all souls.

HOME

Anything that brings spiritual, mental, or physical weakness, touch it not with the toes of your feet.

HOME

Are great things ever done smoothly? Time, patience, and indomitable will must show.

HOME

Are you unselfish? That is the question. If you are, you will be perfect without reading a single religious book, without going into a single church or temple.

HOME

As body, mind, or soul, you are a dream; you really are Being, Consciousness, Bliss .You are the God of this universe.

HOME

As long as we believe ourselves to be even the least different from God, fear remains with us; but when we know ourselves to be the One, fear goes; of what can we be afraid?

As soon as I think that I am a little body, I want to preserve it, to protect it, to keep it nice, at the expense of other bodies; then you and I become separate.

Be a hero. Always say, “I have no fear.” Tell this to everyone—“Have no fear.”

HOME

Be perfectly resigned, perfectly unconcerned; then alone can you do any true work. No eyes can see the real forces; we can only see the results. Put out self, forget it; just let God work, it is His business.

HOME

Blows are what awaken us and help to break the dream. They show us the insufficiency of this world and make us long to escape, to have freedom.

HOME

Books are infinite in number and time is short. The secret of knowledge is to take what is essential. Take that and try to live up to it.

HOME

Both the forces of good and evil will keep the universe alive for us, until we awake from our dreams and give up this building of mud pies.

HOME

Come out into the broad light of day, come out from the little narrow paths, for how can the infinite soul rest content to live and die in small ruts?

HOME

Come out into the universe of Light. Everything in the universe is yours, stretch out your arms and embrace it with love. If you every felt you wanted to do that, you have felt God.

HOME

Delusion will vanish as the light becomes more and more effulgent, load after load of ignorance will vanish, and then will come a time when all else has disappeared and the sun alone shines.

HOME

All differences in this world are of degree, and not of kind, because oneness is the secret of everything. 

HOME

All the powers in the universe are already ours. It is we who have put our hands before our eyes and cry that it is dark.

HOME

As different streams having different sources all mingle their waters in the sea, so different tendencies, various though they appear, crooked or straight, all lead to God. 

HOME

Condemn none: if you can stretch out a helping hand, do so. If you cannot, fold your hands, bless your brothers, and let them go 

HOME

External nature is only internal nature writ large.

HOME

GOD is to be worshipped as the one beloved, dearer than everything in this and next life. 

HOME

If faith in ourselves had been more extensively taught and practiced, I am sure a very large portion of the evils and miseries that we have would have vanished.

HOME

If money help a man to do good to others, it is of some value; but if not, it is simply a mass of evil, and the sooner it is got rid of, the better.

HOME

In one word, this ideal is that you are divine.

HOME

Never think there is anything impossible for the soul. It is the greatest heresy to think so. If there is sin, this is the only sin; to say that you are weak, or others are weak.

HOME

Our duty is to encourage every one in his struggle to live up to his own highest idea, and strive at the same time to make the ideal as near as possible to the Truth.

HOME

That man has reached immortality who is disturbed by nothing material.

HOME

The more we come out and do good to others, the more our hearts will be purified, and God will be in them.

HOME

The will is not free - it is a phenomenon bound by cause and effect - but there is something behind the will which is free.

HOME

The world is the great gymnasium where we come to make ourselves strong.

HOME

Truth can be stated in a thousand different ways, yet each one can be true.

HOME

We are what our thoughts have made us; so take care about what you think. Words are secondary. Thoughts live; they travel far.

HOME

When an idea exclusively occupies the mind, it is transformed into an actual physical or mental state.

HOME

Where can we go to find God if we cannot see Him in our own hearts and in every living being.

HOME

You cannot believe in God until you believe in yourself.

HOME

You have to grow from the inside out. None can teach you, none can make you spiritual. There is no other teacher but your own soul.

HOME

every part of your body, be full of that idea, and just leave every other idea alone. This is the way to success, that is way great spiritual giants are produced.

HOME

Never think there is anything impossible for the soul. It is the greatest heresy to think so. If there is sin, this is the only sin ? to say that you are weak, or others are weak.

HOME

We are what our thoughts have made us; so take care about what you think. Words are secondary. Thoughts live; they travel far.

HOME

The more we come out and do good to others, the more our hearts will be purified, and God will be in them.

HOME

All the powers in the universe are already ours. It is we who have put our hands before our eyes and cry that it is dark.

HOME

YOU know, I may have to be born again, you see, I have fallen in love with mankind.

HOME

BY the study of different RELIGIONS we find that in essence they are one.

HOME

Our duty is to encourage every one in his struggle to live up to his own highest idea, and strive at the same time to make the ideal as near as possible to the Truth.

HOME

Truth can be stated in a thousand different ways, yet each one can be true.

HOME

The will is not free – it is a phenomenon bound by cause and effect – but there is something behind the will which is free.

HOME

TO worship God even for the sake of salvation or any other reward is equally degenerate. Love knows no reward. Give your love unto to God, but do not ask anything in return even from Him through pray.

HOME

That man has reached immortality who is disturbed by nothing material.

HOME

If money help a man to do good to others, it is of some value; but if not, it is simply a mass of evil, and the sooner it is got rid of, the better.

HOME

“Stand up, be bold, be strong. Take the whole responsibility on your own shoulders, and know that you are the creator of your own destiny

HOME

“Arise! Awake! And stop not till the goal is reached.

HOME

“To be good and to do good - that is the whole of religion.”
