         So who can stop him
From doing as he wishes?

    3.  One who meditates upon and realizes the
self discovers that everything in the cosmos–
energy and space, fire and water, name and
form, birth and death, mind and will, word
and deed, mantram and meditation–all come
from the Self.

-Chandogya Upanishad

 

 

 

    4. Healed of their sins and conflicts, working for the good of all beings, the holy sages   attain nirvana in Brahman.  Free from anger and selfish desire, unified in mind, those who follow the path of yoga realize the Self and are established forever in that supreme state.

                                      -Bhagavad Gita 5:25-26

 

 

 

 

    5.  All the religions of the world, while they may differ in other respects, unitedly proclaim that nothing lives in this world but Truth.

– Mahatma Gandhi, 1927

 

 

 

 

     6. In the hands of a benevolent man,
Wealth is like a medicinal tree whose healing gifts help all.

                                      -Tirukkural 217

 

 

 

   7. Before you speak, ask yourself, is it kind, is it necessary, is it true, does it improve on the   silence?

                                      -Sai Baba

 

 

 

   8.  By  nature my mind is empty.
Even in sleep, I am awake.
I think of things without thinking.

        All my impressions of the world
Have dissolved.

My desires have melted away.

So what do I care for money
Or the thieving senses,
For friend or knowledge or holy books?

-Ashtavakra Gita 14:1-2

 

 

 

 

   9. One who has attained complete discrimination between the subtlest level of mind and the Self has no higher  knowledge to acquire.

      This is dharma megha samadhi–the state of the Unclouded Truth.

                                         -The Yoga Sutras of Patanjali, 4:29

 

 

 

 10. As clouds are blown away by the wind, the thirst for material pleasures will be driven away by the utterance  of the Lord’s name.

                                         -Sri Sarada Devi

 

 

 

   11. A learned man’s learning shines the brightest
among luminaries capable of critiquing his language.

       Speaking to an audience of thinking men
is like watering a bed of growing plants.

-Tirukkural 72: 717-718

 

 

    12.  A certain degree of physical harmony and comfort is necessary, but above a certain level it becomes a hindrance instead of a help. Therefore the ideal of creating an unlimited number of wants and satisfying them seems to be a delusion and a snare.

– Mahatma Gandhi

 

 

 

    13. Better indeed is knowledge than mechanical practice. Better than knowledge is meditation. But better still is surrender of attachment to results, because there follows immediate peace.

                                           -Bhagavad Gita 12:12

 

 

 

  14. The moon is one, but on agitated water it produces many reflections. Similarly ultimate reality is one, yet it   appears to be many in a mind agitated by thoughts.

 15 . All those who walk with God reach their destination.

                                           -Sai Baba
