Forgiveness is the fragrance, which crushed Tulasi leaves on the fingers that crushed them, in a thoughtless act!

Burn it and it wafts it's glory in the entire neighborhood. Such is the enchanting beauty of forgiveness in life.

Leading a virtuous life is not by itself sufficient for God-realisation. Concentration of mind is absolutely necessary. A good virtuous life only prepares the mind as a fit instrument for concentration and meditation. It is concentration and meditation that eventually lead to Self-realisation or God-realisation.

Great men have the nature of a child. They are always a child before Him; so they are free from pride. All their strength is of God and not their own. It belongs to Him and comes from Him.
