A man of intellect can turn into a devil, but never a man of heart. Religion is not a theoretical need but a practical necessity. Renunciation does not mean simply dispassion for the world. It means dispassion for the world and also longing for God. There is no misery where there is no want. The secret of life is not enjoyment, but education through experience.
Every new thought must create opposition. Renunciation is the withdrawal of mind from other things and concentrating it on God. Every man who thinks ahead of his time is sure to be misunderstood. In this short life there is no time for the exchange of compliments.
Do not wait to cross the river when the water has all run down. The greatest sin is fear. Better the scolding of the wise than the adulation of the fools. God has become man, man will become god again.
If it is impossible to attain perfection here and now, there is no proof that we can attain perfection in any other life. That part of the Vedas which agrees with reason is the Vedas, and nothing else. If you want to do anything evil, do it before the eyes of your superiors. Happiness presents itself before man, wearing the crown of sorrow on its head. If one is a slave to his passions and desires, one cannot feel the pure joy of real freedom. Never mind if your contribution is only a mite, your help only a little, blades of grass united into a rope will hold in confinement the maddest of elephants.
The cow never tells a lie, and the stone never steals, but, nevertheless, the cow remains a cow and the stone remains a stone.
Man steals and man tells a lie, and again it is man that becomes the god. When even man never hears the cries of the fool, do you think God will? Strength is life, weakness is death. Never are the wants of a beggar fulfilled. Let the heart be opened first, and all else will follow of itself. Tell the man his defaults directly but praise his virtues before others. Activity is life and inactivity is death. Salvation is not achieved by inactivity but by spiritual activities.
Even the least work done for others awakens the power within. New things have to be learned, have to be introduced and worked out, but is that to be done by sweeping away all that is old, just because it is old?
The man who says he has nothing more to learn is already at his last grasp As long as I live, so do I learn. No one can save a person who hires a carriage to go from one street to another, and then complain of diabetes. By the control of the subconscious mind you get control over the conscious. It is the constant struggle against nature that constitutes human progress, not conformity with it.
The very essence of education is concentration of mind, not the collecting of facts. It is through the many that we reach the one. The soul is the circle of which the circumference is nowhere, but the center is the body. God is a circle whose circumference is nowhere, but whose center is everywhere. The body itself is the biggest disease.
If any one of you believes what I teach, I will be sorry. I will only be too glad if I can excite in you the power of thinking for yourselves. When the world is the end and God the means to attain that end, that is material. When God is the end and the world is only the means to attain that end, spirituality has begun.
The fear of God is the beginning of religion, but the love of God is the end of religion. Do not give up anything! Things will give you up. The sage is often ignorant of physical science, because he reads the wrong book- the book within; and the scientist is too often ignorant of religion, because he reads the wrong book- the book without.
Experience is the only source of knowledge. Do one thing at a time and while doing it put your whole soul into it to the exclusion of all else. Where there is life, there will be death; so get away from life if you want to get rid of death. Records of great spiritual men of the past do us no good whatever except that they urge us onward to do the same, to experience religion ourselves.
We may read all the Bibles of the world, but that will not give us religion. The brave alone can afford to be sincere. The balance is so nice that if you disturb the equilibrium of one atom, the whole world will come to an end. Save the spiritual store in your body by observing continence. The wicked see in God wickedness.
The virtuous see in Him virtue. When good nectar is unattainable, it is no reason why we should eat poison. Love to enemies is not possible for ordinary men. Everything that comes from India take as true, until you cogent reasons for disbelieving it.
Everything that comes from Europe take as false, until you find cogent reasons for believing it. The benefit of Yoga is that we learn to control instead of being controlled. Never talk about the faults of others, no matter how bad they may be. All quarrels and disputations concerning religion simply show that religion is not present. You must not criticize others, you must criticize yourself. What you have inside you is what you see in others.
Our business is to verify not to swallow. How can that be loveless which causes love in me? You cannot judge a man by his faults. You must believe in yourself and then you will believe in God.
If you are pure, if you are strong, you, one man, is equal to the whole world. Mother represents colorless love that knows no barter, love that never dies.
We trust the man in the street, but there is one being in the universe we never trust and that is God. My motto is to learn whatever good things I may come across anywhere. The secret of religion lies not in theories but in practice. Seek for the highest, aim at the highest, and you shall reach the highest. There is an ocean of difference between idleness and renunciation.
The self-seeking man who is looking after personal comforts and leading a lazy life, there is no room for him even in hell. Hope is the greatest of all miseries, the highest bliss lies in giving up hope. No one ever succeeded in keeping society in good humor and at the same time did great works. Know that talking ill of others in private is a sin. This Atman is not to be attained by one who is weak.
Whatever fosters materiality is no work. Why look up to men for approbation, look up to God. He who knows how to obey knows how to command. Want of sympathy and lack of energy are at the root of all misery.
India is the only place where, with all its faults, the soul finds its freedom, its God. It is the heart that conquers, not the brain. All the strength is in you, have faith in it. The body must go no mistake about that. It is better to wear out than to rust out. In every attempt there are many obstacles to cope with, but gradually the path becomes smooth.
Both attachment and detachment perfectly developed make a man great and happy. Where there is struggle, where there is rebellion, there is a sign of life, there consciousness is manifested.
Where did you ever hear of money making man? He who always speculates as to what awaits him in future, accomplishes nothing whatsoever. Fear is one of the worst enemies. If one intends to really find truth, one must not cling to comfort.
