"The man who has seen God becomes like a child. He is beyond the three gunas; he is unattached to any of them. He behaves like a ghoul, for he maintains the same attitude toward things holy and unholy. Again, like a madman, he sometimes laughs and sometimes weeps. Now he dresses himself like a dandy and the next moment he goes entirely naked and roams about with his cloth under his arm. Therefore he seems to be a lunatic. Again, at times he sits motionless like an inert thing."

"In this external world, which is full of finite things, it is impossible to see and find the Infinite. The Infinite must be sought in that alone which is infinite, and the only thing infinite about us is that which is within us, our own soul. Neither the body, nor the mind, nor even our thoughts, nor the world we see around us, is infinite."

"Every Child is a great hope of the future. But today most of our children indeed grow in the middle of opportunities but are caught up in confusions about their future. Eventually lack of Confidence distracts the mind from the main stream of the life and ultimately leads to frustration and behavioral changes."

"In an aerial view of the world, there are no disquieting mental agitations, because in that vision of Oneness, little differences of opinion about a boundary line with a neighbor pale into insignificance. Similarly, when a spiritual aspirant raises himself into greater ambits of spiritual vision, his mind can no longer entertain any agitation at the ordinary levels of likes and dislikes."

"In a dark room if a pot containing a lamp inside it is broken, the darkness of the room is dispelled and you see light everywhere in the room. Even so, if the body-pot is broken through constant meditation on the Self, i.e., if you destroy ignorance (Avidya) and its effects such as identification with the body, and rise above body-consciousness you will cognise the supreme light of the Atman everywhere."

"Meditation is your duty. It is not something that you are doing as an occupation; it is the art of being yourself. Nothing can be more profitable for a person than to be one’s own self. Prayer is an affirmation of consciousness for rousing itself to a dimension higher than its own self."

"Sri Radha used to experience mahabhava. If any of her companions wanted to touch her while she was in that state, another of them would say: 'Please do not touch that body, the playground of Sri Krishna. Krishna is now sporting in her body.' It is not possible to experience bhava or mahabhava without the realization of God. When a fish comes up from a great depth, you see a movement on the surface of the water; and if it is a big one there, is much splashing about. That is why a devotee 'laughs and weeps and dances and sings in the ecstasy of God'."

"Motive or intention behind an act decides whether it is going to fetter the agent or leave him free. The larger the motive behind an act, the greater is the freedom of the agent concerned and the higher also is the value of the act. The largeness of the motive consists in the extent to which it exceeds the limitations of personal longing, covetousness, greed or desire."

"To succeed, you must have tremendous perseverance, tremendous will. "I will drink the ocean," says the persevering soul, "at my will mountains will crumble up." Have that sort of energy, that sort of will, work hard, and you will reach the goal."

"Life is a great struggle. Face the difficulties bravely. Have full trust in God and repeat His Name always. You will be peaceful and strong. Everything happens as God wills. Rely on God and be peaceful. Lord is your refuge, your fortress. The eye of devotion sees God and God alone in all things. God can be seen by the seers by keen and one pointed intuition. Intuition sees God. Reason gives the logical proofs. The Vision of God is a gift of God."

"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."

Right Association Makes One Successful!!

 "The beautiful tradition of ten day long Onam celebrations makes us more energetic. Each Onam ritual gives us invaluable lessons. A beautiful “pookalam” reminds about the right associations that we should keep. Different colored petals of flowers in the pookalam represent different minds and the beauty is when they associate and stay together. Success follows when we are in association with right people who encourages us. On this 6th day of Onam celebrations let us be more thoughtful to be with right and progressive association."
