A house must be built on solid foundations if it is to last. The same principle applies to man, otherwise he too will sink back into the soft ground and becomes swallowed up by the world of illusion.
A man who has no love in him is as barren as a cloud with no moisture, a tree with no fruits or a cow yielding no milk; he is ever far from God and can never earn His grace.
All action results from thought, so it is thoughts that matter.
Anger, ego, jealousy are the biggest diseases. Keep yourself aloof from these three diseases.
As worldly thoughts diminish, thoughts of God increase. Normally, the mind is all the time desiring these worldly things. As the desires are cut out one by one, the peace becomes stronger.
Be simple and sincere.
Before you speak, ask yourself: Is it kind? Is it necessary? Is it true? Does it improve the silence?
Do not be misled by what you see around you, or be influenced by what you see. You live in a world which is a playground of illusion, full of false paths, false values and false ideals. But you are not part of that world.
Do not get attached to worldly things and pursuits. Be in the world, but do not let the world be in you.
Do not use poisonous words against anyone, for words wound more fatally than even arrows.
I am formless and everywhere. I am in everything. I am in everything and beyond. I fill all space. All that you see, taken together, is Myself. I do not shake or move.
I am the Attributeless, Absolute, Nirguna. I have no name, no residence.
I am the protector of all lives. I am present even before the creation. I am prime God.
I give people what they want in the hope that they will begin to want what I want to give them!
I had a Guru. He was a great saint and most merciful. I served him long - very, very long; still, he would not blow any mantra in my ears. I had a keen desire never to leave him but to stay with him and serve him and at all cost receive some instruction from him.
I shall be active and vigorous even from the tomb.
If you honor your mother, the mother of the universe will guard you against harm.
If you seek my help and guidance, I will immediately give it to you.
Learn to speak what you feel, and act what you speak.
Let all beings in all the worlds be happy. Include this universal prayer in your prayers every day. This is my birthday message to you.
Let love flow so that it cleanses the world. Then man can live in peace, instead of the state of turmoil he has created through his past ways of life, with all those material interests and earthly ambitions.
Life is a challenge – meet it.
Life is a mosaic of pleasure and pain – grief is an interval between two moments of joy.
Life is a song - sing it. Life is a game - play it. Life is a challenge - meet it. Life is a dream - realize it. Life is a sacrifice - offer it. Life is love - enjoy it.
Look at the world with the vision of peace, love, and compassion. Then the whole world will appear loving and peaceful.
Look out into the universe and contemplate the glory of God. Observe the stars, millions of them, twinkling in the night sky, all with a message of unity, part of the very nature of God.
Love all. Serve all. Help ever. Hurt never.
Love is a bridge over the sea of change. Do not build a house on it.
Love is selflessness. Self is lovelessness.
