Terrible is the fight put up by the senses. Fight bravely! Conquer them you must.

Today is you own. Tomorrow perchance may never come.

Neither seek nor avoid, take what comes.

There is something good in all seeming failures. You are not to see that now. Time will reveal it. Be patient.

Practice meditation regularly. Meditation leads to eternal bliss. Therefore meditate, meditate.

The real spiritual progress of the aspirant is measured by the extent to which he achieves inner tranquility.

Desire nothing, give up all desires and be happy.

The highest manifestation of strength is to keep ourselves calm and on our own feet.

There cannot be friendship without equality.

Your duty is to treat everybody with love as a manifestation of the Lord.

Today is your own. Tomorrow perchance may never come.

Forget like a child any injury done by somebody immediately. Never keep it in the heart. It kindles hatred.

The secret of life is not enjoyment but education through experience.

Life is a pilgrimage. The wise man does not rest by the roadside inns. He marches direct to the illimitable domain of eternal bliss, his ultimate destination.

Complete peace equally reigns between two mental waves.

Do not love leisure. Waste not a minute. Be bold. Realize the Truth, here and now!

God is all-full. He is self-contained. He is eternal satisfaction.

Go beyond science, into the region of metaphysics. Real religion is beyond argument. It can only be lived both inwardly and outwardly.

Cultivate peace first in the garden of your heart by removing the weeds of lust, hatred, greed, selfishness, and jealousy. Then only you can manifest it externally. Then only, those who come in contact with you, will be benefited by your vibrations of peace and harmony.

Each soul is potentially divine.

Life is short. Time is fleeting. Realise the Self. Purity of the heart is the gateway to God. Aspire. Renounce. Meditate. Be good; do good. Be kind; be compassionate. Inquire, know Thyself.

Be humble as the blade of grass that is being trodden underneath the feet. The little ant tastes joyously the sweetness of honey and sugar. The mighty elephant trembles in pain under the agony of sharp goad.

Whatever you are doing, put your whole mind on it. If you are shooting, your mind should be only on the target. Then you will never miss. If you are learning your lessons, think only of the lesson.

Meditation is painful in the beginning but it bestows immortal Bliss and supreme joy in the end.

It is the cheerful mind that is persevering. It is the strong mind that hews its way through a thousand difficulties.

Experience is the only teacher we have. We may talk and reason all our lives, but we shall not understand a word of truth until we experience it ourselves.

If you do not know the laws of right conduct, you cannot form your character.

Moral values, and a culture and a religion, maintaining these values are far better than laws and regulations.

A desire arises in the mind. It is satisfied immediately another comes. In the interval which separates two desires a perfect calm reigns in the mind. It is at this moment freed from all thought, love or hate. Complete peace equally reigns between two mental waves.

Thinking of disease constantly will intensify it. Feel always 'I am healthily in body and mind'.

Crave for a thing, you will get it. Renounce the craving, the object will follow you by itself.

There is no end of craving. Hence contentment alone is the best way to happiness. Therefore, acquire contentment.

Put your heart, mind, intellect and soul even to your smallest acts. This is the secret of success.

Humility is not cowardice. Meekness is not weakness. Humility and meekness are indeed spiritual powers.

A mountain is composed of tiny grains of earth. The ocean is made up of tiny drops of water. Even so, life is but an endless series of little details, actions, speeches, and thoughts. And the consequences whether good or bad of even the least of them are far-reaching.

It is divinity that shapes, not only your ends, but also your acts, your words and thoughts.

Desire is poverty. Desire is the greatest impurity of the mind. Desire is the motive force for action. Desire in the mind is the real impurity. Even a spark of desire is a very great evil.

Silence is the language of God; it is also the language of the heart.

All knowledge that the world has ever received comes from the mind; the infinite library of the universe is in our own mind.

Do not brood over your past mistakes and failures as this will only fill your mind with grief, regret and depression. Do not repeat them in the future.

The harder the struggle, the more glorious the triumph. Self-realization demands very great struggle.

Always do good to others. Be selfless. Mentally remove everything and be free. This is divine life. This is the direct way to Moksha or salvation.
