Sri Ramana Maharshi

 It is false to speak of realisation. What is there to realise? The real is as it is always. We are not creating anything new or achieving something which we did not have before. The illustration given in books is this. We dig a well and create a huge pit. The space in the pit or well has not been created by us. We have just removed the earth which was filling the space there. The space was there then and is also there now. Similarly we have simply to throw out all the age-long sanskaras which are inside us. When all of them have been given up, the Self will shine alone.

Ramprasad Sen


Behold my Mother playing with Shiva, Lost in an ecstasy of joy! Drunk with a draught of celestial wine, She reels, and yet does not fall. Erect She stands on Shiva's bosom, And the earth Trembles under Her tread; She and Her Lord are mad with frenzy, Casting aside all fear and shame.

Huzur Maharaj Rai Saligram

 "A heart devoid of Love or Affection is as hard as stone, and does not form a suitable receptacle for the Light of Heavenly Grace and Mercy.Where Pure Love dwells there sheds the Light of Grace, as it forms a link with the Spirit or Love Current from It's Source, the Supreme Being… Love is most sublime, having its origin in the Highest Region, the Abode of the Supreme Being. In whatever heart it springs up, It will gradually raise and carry the fortunate possessor of this lofty and noble passion to the Highest Region."

Terence Mckenna, The Archaic Revival


“We have been to the moon, we have charted the depths of the ocean and the heart of the atom, but we have a fear of looking inward to ourselves because we sense that is where all the contradictions flow together.”

"The meeting of man and God must always mean a penetration and entry of the Divine into human and a self-immergence of man in the Divinity."


Carl Jung

 “Carl Jung had an instinct that what was wrong with life, what made life tear apart, made it incomplete, was because the feminine was rejected, driven insane, driven mad by a world of men. Rejected by a masculine-dominated world.”

Nikola Tesla

 Every living being is an engine geared to the wheelwork of the universe. Though seemingly affected only by its immediate surrounding, the sphere of external influence extends to infinite distance.

From Secrets of Creation Revealed:


"After arriving at the Nirvikalpa state, man realises for the first time that his whole existence as a physical body as well as an individualized consciousness is unreal, evanescent, and ephemeral. He then knows for certain that the individualised body aspect and the individualised consciousness aspect are composed of mere dream stuff of the Primary Consciousness, the only Absolute Reality behind all the worlds of phenomena.

When He (Primary Consciousness) imagines or daydreams, He creates a dream stuff composed cosmos, which to us is the waking cosmos and of which we all are a part. Thus we all are His day dream. The cosmos is not composed of a so called real physical matter. On the contrary it is composed of Primary Consciousness alone albeit Primary Consciousness in His formful mode."



From Autobiography of a Yogi:

"The whole cosmos is a projected thought of the Creator. The heavy clod of the earth, floating in space, is a dream of God's. He made all things out of his mind, even as man in his dream consciousness reproduces and vivifies a creation with its creatures."

Katha Upanishad


Know the atman to be the master of the chariot; the body, chariot; the intellect, the charioteer; and the mind, the reins.

The senses, they say, are the horses; the objects, the roads. The wise call the atman—united with the body, the senses and the mind—the enjoyer.

If the buddhi, being related to a mind that is always distracted, loses its discriminations, then the senses become uncontrolled, like the vicious horses of a charioteer.

But if the buddhi, being related to a mind that is always restrained, possesses discrimination, then the senses come under control, like the good horses of a charioteer.


Daisaku Ikeda


The human spirit is as expansive as the cosmos. This is why it is so tragic to belittle yourself or to question your worth. No matter what happens, continue to push back the boundaries of your inner life. The confidence to prevail over any problem, the strength to overcome adversity and unbounded hope — all reside within you.


Rig Veda I, 92, 4-5

 Dawn like a dancer puts on her ornaments; as a cow yields her udder, so she bares her bosom. She creates light for all living beings, flinging wide the gates of darkness, as cows their enclosure.

We have beheld the radiance of her shining. Advancing, she drives away the horror of the night. Like a colored post, anointed at the sacrificial feast, so the Dawn, Heaven's daughter, is adorned with wondrous splendor.


Ram Dass

 "You gotta remember that the ego is built on fear. It’s not built on love; it’s built on fear. It’s built on the fear of non-survival, and so you build a structure in order to make you safe. And it’s a beautiful instrument, but if you’re identified with it, you’re fearful all the time. And because you’re fearful you’re always going to overcompensate and make ego decisions that are a little inappropriate, because they’ll be colored by your looking from inside this place."

Paramahansa Yogananda

"It is the Spirit of God that actively sustains every form and force in the universe; yet He is transcendental and aloof in the blissful uncreated void beyond the world of vibratory phenomena. Those who have attained Self-realization on earth live a similar twofold existence. Conscientiously performing their work in the world, they are yet immersed in an inward beautitude"


katha upanishad


To very few is it given to hear about the Atma
Many more who hear of the Atma, do not understand.
Wonderful is the person who speaks of it.
Intelligent is the person who learns of it.
Most blessed is he who hears it
from a knowing teacher and understands it.


Amma Karunamayi


Our true nature is not limited ... it is like the vast ocean. When we touch Supreme Consciousness through meditation, then we are boundless, we are everywhere, we are eternal.

George Feuerstein

 Hindu Tantra is a complex system of spiritual knowledge, an integral part of Hindu spirituality and the traditions of the Himalayan region. Yet Hinduism is not a religion in Western sense of a belief-oriented system emphasizing one book, prophet or church. Hinduism is not an exclusive belief which says that other religions are false, but an open spiritual tradition that accepts all useful practices and insights and which encour­ ages diversity, innovation and individual freedom.

VakAmbhrini, Rig Veda X. 125.7-8

 The Goddess Speaks: Before the beginning of the universe alone existed, with nothing other than my­ self That Self-nature is called by the names o f consciousness, wisdom, and the supreme Brahman. Devi Gita IV.3 I create the Father o f the universe on the summit of the worlds. My origin is within the cosmic waters, in the universal sea. From there I extend to all the worlds and touch the ridge o f Heaven. I blow like the wind, setting in motion all the universe. Far beyond Heaven and beyond this Earth extends my greatness. 





The Female-Centric Shaktidharma denomination assigns the eminent roles of the three forms (Trimurti) of Supreme Divinity not to masculine gods but instead to feminine goddesses: Mahasarasvati (Creator), Mahalaxmi (Preserver), and Mahakali (Destroyer). This feminine version of the Trimurti is called Tridevi (“three goddesses”). The masculine gods (Brahma, Vishnu, Shiva) are then relegated as auxiliary agents of the supreme feminine Tridevi.

Shambhavi L. Chopra

 The entire universe is Kali’s sacrifice, through which she consumes the blood of all beings, drawing out the very inner life within them…yet her aim is not to consume our blood but to direct its course back to our soul, of which she is the mother. It is the very blood of life that she brings to us, the prana, the cosmic life force, supporting the most primal will of all life - to live forever

Sri Chinmoy


"Life is nothing but the expansion of love. We can cultivate divine love by entering into the Source. The Source is God, who is all Love.


As the Mother of all

 Holding the entire universe through its pervasive nature that has no form, the lightning of Shakti generates sound in the Void, breathing its energy, and shines forth. The Goddess is this lightning force by a subtle radiance. As the Mother of all, she experiences all modes of being in the Universe.'




Ishavasya Upanishad – Verse 7

  When to the knower, all Bhutas become one with his own Atman, what perplexity, what grief, is there when he sees this oneness.

Bhagavad Gita 3.10

 “In the beginning of creation, the Lord of all creatures sent forth generations of men and demigods, along with sacrifices for Vishnu, and blessed them by saying, “Be thou happy by this yajna [sacrifice] because its performance will bestow upon you all desirable things.”

What is vital energy?

Vital energy is our true essence. It's our pure and perfect spirits...the joining of our masculine and the feminine energy dancing a perfect dance of harmony and balance. Once we close this gap, we will no longer have limitations or need for physical sustenance, because God's Light will then reach us and sustain us.


-Sri Anandamayi Ma

 "Happiness that depends on anything outside of you, be it a wife, a child, money, fame, friends cannot last. But if you find happiness in God who is everywhere, all pervading, who is your own self, that is real happiness."

The Frog in a Well

 We Are the Frog, and Our Tiny Imperfect Limited Perceptions of Reality is the Well of Our Confinement

Ekam advitîyam. One without a Second

If you ask, what then is real in all things and in every individual soul? the answer is, Brahman, the One without a Second, the One besides whom there is nothing; but this answer can be understood by those only who know Avidyâ, and by knowing it have destroyed it. Others believe that the world is this or that, and that they themselves are this and that. Man thinks that he is an Ego dwelling in the body, seeing and hearing, comprehending and reasoning, reasoning and acting, while with the strict Vedântist the true Self lies deep below the Ego, or the Aham, which belongs to the world of illusion. As an Ego, man has become already an actor and enjoyer, instead of remaining a distant witness of the world. He is then carried along into the Samsâra, the concourse of the world; he becomes the creature or the slave of his accumulated acts (karman), and goes on from change to change, till in the end he discovers the true Brahman which alone really exists, and which as being himself is called Âtman or Self, and at the same time Paramâtman, or the Highest, Âtman and Brahman, both being one and the same thing. Good works may be helpful in producing a proper state of mind for receiving this knowledge, but it is by knowledge alone that men can be saved and obtain Mukti, freedom, and not by good works. This salvation or freedom finds expression in the celebrated
p. 75
words Tat tvam asi, thou art that, i.e. thou art not thou, but that, i.e. the only existing Brahman; the Âtman, the Self, and the Brahman are one and the same.


 Now, what is there in the waking state that does not disappear? Nothing. Therefore, everything objective, connected with the waking state, is unreal.

But what we have just called the unreal appears all the while. Yes. When the unreal appears as real we call it a dream. Therefore, the waking state is all a dream.
But there is one thing that does not disappear in any state – pure Consciousness, the Atma (Self).By a ‘dream’ we mean something which is not real. What is Reality? That which does not disappear at any time.**




Anandamayi Ma

 Human beings have to be dwellers of the inner cave so that God who resides within can be revealed.


  "You cannot move towards Greatness, keeping your littleness with you... Don't call God to your little world. Instead, leave your little world and come to God."

Joseph Campbell

  Eternity isn’t some later time. Eternity isn’t a long time. Eternity has nothing to do with time. Eternity is that dimension of here and now which thinking and time cuts out. This is it. And if you don’t get it here, you won’t get it anywhere. And the experience of eternity right here and now is the function of life.

1. 𝘽𝙧𝙖𝙝𝙢𝙖𝙣 — 𝙩𝙝𝙚 𝙂𝙤𝙙𝙝𝙚𝙖𝙙

 “Whence all being arise, by which they are sustained and into which they, departing hence, all ultimately return — seek to known That! That is Brahman”. (Taittiriya.Upanishad 3:1;2)

Hinduism teaches that there is ONE Supreme Reality— known as Brahman (The “Immensity”) which is inconceivable and therefore cannot be described in any way — but it can be realized in deep states of meditation. It is that from which every conceivable thing arises, by which things exist and into which everything is ultimately dissolved. This Supreme Being assumes a dual nature — Male and Female. The male aspect is known as Purusha which means “that‐which‐fills” — and the Female aspect is known as Shakti which translates as “Energy” or “Dynamic Force” or Prakriti — material nature. The Purusha and Shakti are philosophically distinguishable but inseparable in their being and cosmic function. If the Purusha is the word, Shakti is the meaning; if the Purusha is the flower; Shakti is the smell. Both the subjective Purusha and objective Prakriti arise from the same “Oneness”. In the beginning there was Being alone, One without a second. Although we talk of God in the masculine, any mention of ‘him’ automatically includes reference to ‘her’ as well. The Godhead is the basis, source and support of everything in the universe. Its nature is defined by three attributes —
(1) Absolute Being (sat),
(2) Consciousness (chit),
(3) Bliss (ananda).

William James


Nisargadatta Maharaj

  Before the world was, consciousness was. In consciousness the world comes to be, in hard consciousness and in pure consciousness dissolves. At the root of everything, there is the feeling of ′′ I am ". The state of mind: ′′ there is a world ′′ is secondary, to be me I don't need the world, the world needs me.

′′ I Am That ′′ (pag. 107)
