Swami Lakshamanjoo,

 ''This soul, which has come into the body as an incarnation (in each and every body there is an incarnation of the soul), he has come into this body as an avatār does, but It is a misfortune for that person who does not understand that “I am an incarnation. I have come [in this body] to elevate this whole universe.”

Life is a Cosmic Game & You are the Programmer/Player

Adi Shankaracharya

 The fool thinks, "I am the body"; the intelligent man thinks, "I am an individual soul united with the body." But the wise man, in the greatness of his knowledge and spiritual discrimination, sees the Self as the only reality and thinks, "I am Brahman."



Kabir Book of Prayers

 The soul finds drops of nectar flowing.

It longs to see God and,

on being in His presence,

it bathes in the river of tranquility. -

J krishnamurti

 Ignorance does not transform itself into wisdom through the process of time, through the inspiration of a goal. It must be dissolved in the ever-present.  


Meister Eckhart

 There is no need to look for God here or there. He is no farther away than the door of your own heart. --

Avadhuta Gita

 i-54. My mind, my friend, many words are not needed, and the world hardly comprehends reason. In a word, I have told you the essence of truth: “You are Truth, you are as space”


Human excellence depends on the growth of the human spirit, a rich quality of life. Courage and conviction in the heart are the true signs of human excellence. The fusion of the energy of manliness with spiritual energy has a tremendous power of impact on the world situation. Peace, happiness and a sense of fulfilment comes from the fusion of the material forces with spiritual forces.

 Don’t be a storehouse of memories.

Leave past, future and even present thoughts aside.
Be a witness to the life unfolding by itself.
Be free of all attachments, fears and concerns
by keeping your mind inside your own heart.
Rest in being.
Like this, life is always fresh and imbued
with pure joy and timeless presence.
Be happy, wise and free. What’s the other choice?

Amit Ray

 Enlightenment comes when you understand the language of heart - the language of tree, birds and the nature.


Katha Upanishad


“The knowing self is not born; it does not die.

it has not sprung from anything; nothing has sprung from it. birthless,

eternal, everlasting and ancient, it is not killed when the body is killed


​Mundaka Upanishad


“That immortal Brahman alone is before, that Brahman is behind, that Brahman is to the right and left. Brahman alone pervades everything above and below; this universe is that supreme Brahman alone.

Mundaka Upanishad


Nisargadatta Maharaj

 One thing is certain: the real is not imaginary, it is not a product of the mind. Even the sense ‘I am’ is not continuous, though it is a useful pointer; it shows where to seek, but not what to seek. Just have a good look at it. Once you are convinced that you cannot say truthfully about your self anything except ‘I am’, and that nothing that can be pointed at, can be your self, the need for the ‘I am’ is over — you are no longer intent on verbalising what you are. All you need is to get rid of the tendency to define your self. All definitions apply to your body only and to its expressions. Once this obsession with the body goes, you will revert to your natural state, spontaneously and effortlessly. The only difference between us is that I am aware of my natural state, while you are bemused. Just like gold made into ornaments has no advantage over gold dust, except when the mind makes it so, so are we one in being — we differ only in appearance. We discover it by being earnest, by searching, enquiring, questioning daily and hourly, by giving one’s life to this discovery.

Lord Ramakrishna.

 Once the devotee develops love for the Lotus Feet of God and enjoys the chanting of His name and attributes, he does not have to make any special effort to restrain his senses. For such a devotee, the organs of the senses control themselves.

Kularnava Tantra

 ''The body is the temple of God. Jiva is Sadashiva. Let him give up his ignorance as the offering which is thrown away (Nirmalya) and worship with the thought and feeling, 'I am He'."

 Women get more beautiful as they grow older. Not less.

Female youth is only prized in modern culture because it doesn’t represent as much of a threat spiritually to anyone who is frightened of divine feminine power. As women grow and mature, they call in stronger forces of sacred feminine wisdom. They vibrate with the creative power of their stories. They are more of a force to be reckoned with. They see more, know more, feel more. They put up with a lot less bullshit. When women are trained into thinking there is something fundamentally wrong with getting older, and are coerced into spending money, energy and power investing in ‘slowing the signs of ageing’, an enormous vault of divine love is lost. Just think what would happen if all the women in the world started loving themselves even more with every year that passed. Perhaps a total revolution would occur.

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.


Atma, the Eternal Witness

 Within the Vedantic knowledge, the eternal witness within every living being is called the Atma. The word Atma means light or effulgence. The Atma is the very core of each individual which registers all feelings, thoughts, consciousness, and awareness. Western science has taught us that our living forms or bodies have evolved from simple one celled organisms into the complex organization of the human body as it exists today.

 Inherent in this view is that our thoughts and feelings arise as illusions from the electrical nerve activity in the brain. But the sage knows the body to be secondary and dependent on the primary spirit within. Without the spiritual Atma, the perceiver of all thoughts, feelings and sensations; the organically living form would fall down senseless in an instant. The spiritual entity is the cohesive force behind the physical organization and once the Atma withdraws from the body, disintegration begins immediately.

(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.


(Swami Chidananda, Light Fountain Divine Life Society)

 To the enlightened one, the world as he knew it ceases to be, and everything now stands enmantled (shrouded) by a shining vesture of divine effulgence, hitherto invisible to his normal vision.

(Saint Teresa of Avila)


If I were to spend years and years imagining how to invent anything so beautiful, I could not do it, and I do not even know how I should try, for, even in its whiteness and radiance alone, it exceeds all that we can imagine.    


Pema Chodron

 ''The ego seeks to divide and separate. Spirit seeks to unify and heal.''

Avadhuta Gita of Dattatreya

 ''There is no distinction between "embodied" and "bodiless";

"Wrong action," "right action" - neither exists.
Truly, I'm Shiva, the one supreme Self.
How, then, should I worship? To whom should I bow?''

From the intro to the Ribhu Gita

*That which is known as Brahman, or The Self is the timeless Truth *It alone is for all eternity, the unalloyed being and non-duality is its nature

 "After all, there are beautiful things that don't last. But memory of them does."

Ram Dass

 And as you become more and more the statement of love, you fall in love with everyone. There’s nobody here that I don’t feel in love with when I look at because all I see is that which is love in them.

“If… we fill our lives with things, and again with things…

If we consider ourselves so unimportant that we must fill every moment of our lives with action, when will we have the time to make the long, slow journey across the desert as did the Magi? Or sit and watch the stars as did the shepherds? Or brood over the coming of the child as did Mary? For each of us, there is a desert to travel. A star to discover. And a being within ourselves to bring to life.”

Buddha, "Dhammapada"

 Hatred can never put an end to hatred. Love alone can. This is an unalterable law.

Joseph Campbell

 When you realize that eternity is right here now, that it is within your possibility to experience the eternity of your own truth and being, then you grasp the following: That which you are was never born and will never die.

 Be grateful for your life, every detail of it,

and your face will come to shine like a sun, and everyone who sees it will be made glad and peaceful.


 “In a sacred moment, when attention is pulled inward, rather than continuing in its usual outward direction, silence is realized.”


 If there is an ‘I’ who can ‘get it’, there will be an ‘I’ who can ‘lose it’, and this ‘I’ is nothing but thought. It is the most costly thought when believed in, for it exchanges your innocence for complexity and your spontaneity for inhibition.

Sacred Union

 The Sacred Union is the most loving bond with another that we can experience whilst on the earth plane. It is that kind of love that is beyond the 3rd dimension, an unconditional love that lasts no matter what the other person does. The bond exists on all levels from spiritual to mental, emotional and physical

Know that according to His will, law and plan, every moment of every day the five functions of God [creation, sustenance, destruction, veiling and Grace] will be going on perfectly and unceasingly in the universe, which is full of moving and unmoving objects.

 At the very centre of the Quaker faith lies the concept of the Inner Light. This principle states that in every human soul there is implanted a certain element of God's own Spirit and divine energy... The Inner Light discerns between good and evil. It reveals the presence of both in human beings, and through its guidance, offers the alternative of choice. Secondly, the Inner Light opens the unity of all human beings to our consciousness. Friends believe that the potential for good, as well as evil, are latent in everyone.

George Fox acknowledged that there is "an ocean of darkness and death" over the world. But he also saw that "an ocean of light and of love" flows over this ocean of darkness, revealing the infinite love of God. Friends believe that the power of God to overcome evil is available in the nature of anyone who truly wants to do the will of God. To a great extent, we are the arbiter of our own destiny, having the power of choice.

Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj

 In reality nothing is lacking and nothing is needed, all work is on the surface only. In the depths there is perfect peace.
