"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."

"He who is desireless is the richest man in the world. He who is desireless is fearless. There is real happiness in the absence of desire. The way to peace is by overcoming desire. Desire is the root cause of birth and death. Have mastery over desires. Desire obstructs the growth of devotion. Cut down the forest of desires with the axe of dispassion. Destroy all desires. Desire nothing. You will have everything. Desire is the enemy of Jnana. Yearn for the Lord alone."

"Work fearlessly. Plan with a clear vision and selflessly execute it. Do not fear sweating. Do not hesitate to face disappointments."

"Body, heaven, hell, bondage, liberation, fear all these are mere imagination. Brahman alone is real. Discrimination is that faculty by which Brahman alone is seen as real, all else as mere illusion. Brahman is the basic reality in all illusory phenomena. Maya is rooted in the pure Brahman. Maya is Brahman’s coefficient. Brahman has no qualities or attributes, because qualities and attributes involve distinctions and divisions. Therefore, It cannot be known to reason, but only to the highest experience of the mystic and sages."

"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."

Difference between Knowledge and Wisdom ( Jnanam and Vijnanam):-

We live in a world rife with information. Information without authority which we carry is "knowledge". But that which is authenticated by the scriptures is wisdom " Vijnanam" . People who carry information or disseminate it without real wisdom are pitied by the wise. Bhagavad Gita advises you that true knowledge comes from Guru. Anything around you, including your life experiences that teach you, should be considered a Guru. Bhagavatham speaks of 24 gurus. We have a golden opportunity to study Katopanishad that motivated Swami Vivekananda to spread unquestionable wisdom to the world. Katopanishad cautions you against our own reluctance to change which would degrade us and finally cause rejection. Knowledge is a burden but wisdom is strength. Here to walk the path of wisdom let us learn so we can flow like Ganga in grace and happiness.........Vidwan Sarvathra poojanthe".....   Katopani…
