Swami Vivekananda

"You have to grow from the inside out. None can teach you, none can make you spiritual. There is no other teacher but your own soul."

Sri Ramakrishna

"When the divine vision is attained, all appear equal; and there remains no distinction of good and bad, or of high and low."

Sri Sarada Devi

"I am the mother of the wicked, as I am the mother of the virtuous. Never fear. Whenever you are in distress, just say to yourself 'I have a mother.'"

Thought of The Day

In the journey of life, we pass pleasures & pain. There will be sunshine & rain; There will be loss & gain. But we must learn to smile again & again. Think Twice Act wise

"How to worship God in man? Worshipping an image is easy. You can give plenty of food, and you can take the food back home too. But when you worship God in man, a different method is needed. That is beautifully expressed by two great words in the sloka: dana-manabhyam, 'through dana, gift, and mana, respect. Remove their wants. If they are uneducated, give them education; if they are suffering, give them consolation; if they are helpless, help them. In this way practice dana. And while doing so, show mana, respect to them. Don't throw a coin before a person with disrespect. So, dana must be combined with mana. Arhayet danamanabhyam. arhayet, worship (me there); not merely serve."

"When we speak of a temple, we often have a very narrow conception of it. We have hundreds of temples. We go there sometimes, talking all the time, pay four annas to the priest to do some puja, and then come away. Our temple-going has become a simple, and often meaningless act. It doesn't produce any change in the individual. Today, you need a new type of temple, which will make for a change for the better in your own character. That is what Sri Ramakrishna is going to give. He never started a new religion. He never preached any creed or dogma. He only blessed every human being: 'Let your spiritual consciousness be awakened!'"
