"It is this science alone, the Brahma Vidya, which can help you to attain the Supreme Inexhaustible Treasure and wealth which no dacoit can rob. You will have perennial, supreme, inexhaustible wealth which will give you eternal satisfaction. The mind will not hanker after anything else in this world, because Brahman is Paripoorna. All your desires are satisfied."

"With meditation you learn to love the silence. A tender, beautiful and sweet silence. That way you value each word more, given that to not lose that experience of the sweet silence, you try to talk less, to speak with sweetness and gentleness. When you generate the love and pleasure in going to the silence, it helps you express the best of yourself."

“God has revealed to me that only the Paramatman, whom the Vedas describe as the Pure Soul, is as immutable as Mount Sumeru, unattached, and beyond pain and pleasure. There is much confusion in this world of His maya. One can by no means say that 'this' will come after 'that' or 'this' will produce 'that'.”

"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?"

"The Gita is a gate opening on the whole world of spiritual truth and experience and the view it gives us embraces all the provinces of that supreme region. It maps out, but it does not cut up or build walls or hedges to confine our vision.”

"The beginning of saintliness is killing of egoism. A Vedantic student who does not combine Bhakti develops egoism and so he gets a downfall. He whose ego is dead. He and he alone is reborn in the life, that is immortal, endless, full of bliss. It is life in the eternal, fearless Brahman. The Jnani feels he is not the actor as he has no egoism and so he is not bound. An Ajnani feels he is the doer and so he is bound. Kill egoism. You will become the king of kings. Extinguish the Ego. Now God will dwell in your heart."

"Surrender can take effect only when it is done with full knowledge as to what real surrender means. Such knowledge comes after inquiry and reflection and ends invariably in self-surrender."

"When sensuous thoughts, regrets, agitations, loneliness, fear, sorrow, sadness and so on, reach your bosom, disassociate yourself from them – non-violent, non cooperation. This is successful only when you violently cooperate with Him and His divine qualities."

"Be like 'Mother Ganga'. You have a goal no doubt; and the higher the goal greater you must expect obstacles in you. But no obstacles should upset you. Meet them diligently; where it can be jumped over, jump over. If you cannot go around it, and if you cannot wait, proceed; and when the obstacle is ended, turn again and continue your direction. That is the way you have to achieve."

 Is to see the Lord,
 For He shines ever as the pure Self."

"Spiritual preachers should interpret religion in a language which modern people and students can understand. Religion must be interpreted to meet the spiritual needs of younger generation. Scriptures like Gita, Yoga Sutras, etc. should be presented to the youth of today in a language that they can understand and appreciate and in a way that will appeal to them. There is an appalling faithlessness among the educated youths of today, all over India. What the youths want to know is, how the spiritual truth can solve the day-to-day problems that face them."

“Live according to Nature, runs the maxim of the West; but according to what nature, the nature of the body or the nature which exceeds the body? This first we ought to determine.”

"Change is always subjective. To talk of evil and misery is nonsense, because they do not exist outside. If I am immune from all anger, I never feel angry. If am immune from all hatred, I never feel hatred."

“That knowledge which purifies the mind and heart alone is true Knowledge, all else is only a negation of Knowledge.”

"Be conscious first of yourself within, then think and act. All living thought is a world in preparation, all real act is a thought manifested. The material world exists because an Idea began to play in divine self-consciousness."

"Symmetry in the object or objects bring into the perceivers' mind a great quietude and peace and this inner experience of peace and quietude, we have given the name--BEAUTY........ Beauty is the name of God."
