“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.”

"Real happiness is within you. It is in the Atman. It is subjective. It manifests when the mind is concentrated. When the Indriyas are withdrawn from the objects outside, when the mind is one-pointed, when there is Vasanakshaya and Manonasa, when you become desireless and thoughtless, Atmic bliss begins to dawn, spiritual Ananda begins to thrill. The musk is in the navel of the deer, but it runs here and there to smell it. The chain is in the neck of the damsel, but she runs hither and thither in search of it."

"Man is the maker of his own world, and if today the world is an ugly place, it is because he himself is ugly. Cleanse your face with the soft towel of religion, and you will find that the brilliance in the world is but a reflection of the brilliance within you."

"You are love and you need to share that love. Life is a sharing of love, it is loving the body, loving oneself, loving others, loving God, loving nature, loving work. That energy of love in the end purifies us and helps us to go forward. But while the belief exists that love has to be linked to fear and suffering, we will be blocked and will put a brake to the flow of pure love."

"All the procedures of meditation are, in the end, ways of awakening the Soul-consciousness which, in its depth, is, at once, God-consciousness. What is apparently extraneous and outside one’s body gets vitally woven up into the fabric of one’s being in rightly practised meditation. In brief, meditation is the art of uniting with Reality."

"Spirituality does not mean only remembering God to purify oneself but to serve others with that pure love which you receive from God. Service, as stated in all religions, is one of the primary objectives of a beautiful spiritual life and service is nothing but purifying others with the help of a love filled connection with God."

"The love that you feel in respect of an object is in fact the love that you feel towards that which is called perfection and completeness. The mind does not want an object; it wants completeness of being. That is what it is searching for."

" 'Dusserah' indicates as the word suggest Dasa-Papa-Hara, or the end or liquidation of ten sins. The ten sins are attributed to the 10 sense organs through which the mind contacts and gains knowledge of the phenomenal world, and also reacts to the stimuli received from the world of objects. Therefore the idea is that on this sacred day, the ten sins are ended which signifies the end of the mind and therefore the end of the world of plurality when one becomes rooted in the Transcendental Experience."

"Practice of the presence of God always is the easiest, nearest and surest way of reaching God-consciousness. Feel His presence always and everywhere. Feel His indwelling presence in everything, in flowers, trees, dogs, horses, human beings, stones, rivers, stars, sun, moon fire, five elements, etc. feel that you think, feel cogitate, know, wish, talk, write, walk, etc., through Him. Feel His presence in all movements. If you do so, you will always be in joy, bliss, knowledge and immortality. So, practise the above precepts, silently, without any sort of exhibition. In the long run you will easily attain Godhood."

"What are the spiritual disciplines that give the mind its upward direction? One learns all this by constantly living in holy company. The rishis of olden times lived either in solitude or in the company of holy persons; therefore they could easily renounce 'woman and gold' and fix their minds on God. They had no fear nor did they mind the criticism of others."
