"Sri Radha used to experience mahabhava. If any of her companions wanted to touch her while she was in that state, another of them would say: 'Please do not touch that body, the playground of Sri Krishna. Krishna is now sporting in her body.' It is not possible to experience bhava or mahabhava without the realization of God. When a fish comes up from a great depth, you see a movement on the surface of the water; and if it is a big one there, is much splashing about. That is why a devotee 'laughs and weeps and dances and sings in the ecstasy of God'."

"Motive or intention behind an act decides whether it is going to fetter the agent or leave him free. The larger the motive behind an act, the greater is the freedom of the agent concerned and the higher also is the value of the act. The largeness of the motive consists in the extent to which it exceeds the limitations of personal longing, covetousness, greed or desire."

"To succeed, you must have tremendous perseverance, tremendous will. "I will drink the ocean," says the persevering soul, "at my will mountains will crumble up." Have that sort of energy, that sort of will, work hard, and you will reach the goal."

"Life is a great struggle. Face the difficulties bravely. Have full trust in God and repeat His Name always. You will be peaceful and strong. Everything happens as God wills. Rely on God and be peaceful. Lord is your refuge, your fortress. The eye of devotion sees God and God alone in all things. God can be seen by the seers by keen and one pointed intuition. Intuition sees God. Reason gives the logical proofs. The Vision of God is a gift of God."

"In every walk of life and at all moments, we must accept and use the ever-changing challenges, and while consciously meeting them train ourselves to become stronger individuals, with greater mastery over ourselves and over the outer world. This mindful way of living consciously, struggling to improve ourselves from moment-to-moment in our bodily strength, in our heart’s emotions, and in our intellectual capacities is the true religion, which transports even a base individual from his earthbound sorrows into the joys and perfection of a Realised sage."

Right Association Makes One Successful!!

 "The beautiful tradition of ten day long Onam celebrations makes us more energetic. Each Onam ritual gives us invaluable lessons. A beautiful “pookalam” reminds about the right associations that we should keep. Different colored petals of flowers in the pookalam represent different minds and the beauty is when they associate and stay together. Success follows when we are in association with right people who encourages us. On this 6th day of Onam celebrations let us be more thoughtful to be with right and progressive association."

"There is a guiding hand always; there is a leading angel sitting on our very shoulders. Every person is carrying within himself or herself a guiding power, a divinity. There is a divinity that is aware of what is happening. With millions of eyes it looks at us and sees us and notices what is happening to us."
