  "Poison is not real poison. Sense-objects are the real poison. Poison kills one life, but sense-objects can devastate a series of lives."

"Whether we recognise it or not, whether we accept it or not, each of us is in His Hands. Sree Narayana alone 'guides' us all, through chosen sets of 'experiences' to suit the individual temperaments, faults and weaknesses that work in each one of us, until we reach His 'Abode'!"

"Rely upon God and on your own inner spiritual strength. Stand on your own feet. Do not depend on money, friends or anyone. When friends are put to the test, they will desert you. Do not be attached to anybody, to any place, or to wealth and material possessions. Then you will be ever peaceful."

“Life is life--whether in a cat, or dog or man. There is no difference there between a cat or a man. The idea of difference is a human conception for man's own advantage.”

"Surrender can take effect only when it is done with full knowledge as to what real surrender means. Such knowledge comes after enquiry and reflection and ends invariably in self-surrender. There is no difference between jnana and absolute surrender to the Lord, that is, in thought, word and deed. To be complete, surrender must be unquestioning; the devotee cannot bargain with the Lord or demand favours at His hands. Such entire surrender comprises all; it is jnana and vairagya, devotion and love."

If you really want the good of others, the whole universe may stand against you and cannot hurt you. It must crumble before your power of the Lord Himself in you if you are sincere and really unselfish.

“If you desire to be pure, have firm faith, and slowly go on with your devotional practices without wasting your energy in useless scriptural discussions and arguments. Your little brain will otherwise be muddled.”
