  • Spirituality is meant to explain the principle of Divinity and the inner meaning of the names attributed to Him. One who follows the spiritual path should make efforts to understand and experience the principle of Divinity and propagate the same. But, man today has not really understood what spirituality means. He is under the mistaken notion that spirituality means merely offering worship and prayers to God and performing rituals. Man today worships inanimate idols and images, but makes no attempt to love his fellow human beings. If a man cannot love a fellow human being who is visible before his eyes, how can he love someone not visible to him? This is not possible. Only a man who loves those around him can love the invisible Divine.

  • Joy and pleasure earned by karma (actions) are only temporary. Nevertheless, one cannot and should not desist from karma. How then is one to act? One should practise detachment and desirelessness towards the results of karma. That is to say, one should treat all karmas as Yajna (sacrifice) performed for the glory of God and not for selfish ends, for earning lasting merit and not for temporary benefits. The Nishkaama Karma (desireless action) mentioned in the Bhagavad Gita is the real Yajna. Karma performed in that spirit will not cause either greed or grief; it will fill you with a sense of satisfaction and fulfillment.

  • If you contemplate on God with pure and selfless love, you can see Him without fail. Today, many are in the quest of God. God is everywhere, but you should have the eyes to see Him. "Sarvatah Paani Paadam Tat Sarvathokshi Shiromukham, Sarvatah Shruthimalloke Sarvamavruthya Thishthati" (with hands, feet, eyes, heads, mouth and ears pervading everything, He permeates the entire universe). Where is the need to search for God, who is everywhere? Today people are trying to see God with their Charma Chakshu (physical eye). That is why they are unable to see Him. One can see God only with Jnana Chakshu (the eye of wisdom).

  • How can the ephemeral objects confer on you the eternal peace? Yad drishyam thannasyam (all that is seen is bound to perish). Transient objects cannot give you everlasting happiness. We see various objects in this world and are deluded that they are permanent. It is a grave mistake. Even our body is seen by the eyes; hence, it is also not permanent. It is a sign of ignorance to identify oneself with the body. For ages, man has been under the delusion that physical and ephemeral objects will give him happiness. True happiness results when man recognises the underlying eternal principle of Atma in this ephemeral world.

  • Desire and anger are like pests that destroy the tree of human life. Today desire and anger have become rampant in man. Yes, desires are essential for man. But excessive desires wreak havoc. Na Shreyo Niyamam Vina (without moderation, there can be no wellbeing). Desires should be kept under check. Man sometimes has love in him and at other times goes into a fit of anger. Such a tendency is the result of improper food and habits. Never translate your thought into action in haste. Take time and enquire whether what you want to do is right or wrong.

  • It is not possible for all to understand the nature of Divinity. One has to make efforts to understand the principles of Adhara (basis) and Adheya (object). Do not waste your time in mechanically performing rituals. True spirituality lies in realising the truth that man is but a spark of Divinity. This is what is declared in the Bhagavad Gita: Mamaivamsho Jivaloke Jivabhutas Sanathana (all beings are a part of My eternal Self). Vaasudeva-Sarvamidam (the whole world is permeated by God, Vaasudeva). You have to experience this truth and propagate it to the world.

  • The body is made up of five elements and is bound to perish sooner or later, but the Indweller has neither birth nor death. The Indweller has no attachment whatsoever and is the eternal witness. Truly speaking, the Indweller, who is in the form of the Atma, is verily God Himself. The Atma has neither birth nor death. It has no pain or suffering. Only the body has suffering, not the Atma. The physical body comes and goes. You are not the body; you are the embodiments of the Atma. One has to get rid of body attachment in order to enjoy peace and happiness. Gradually reduce your Dehabhimana (body consciousness) and develop Atmabhimana (Atmic consciousness). Body consciousness and Atmic consciousness are inversely proportional. Dehabhimana will disappear once you develop Daivabhimana (Divine consciousness). The first step on the spiritual path is to keep body consciousness under check.

  • All forms are the forms of divinity. But because of worldly feelings, man views multiplicity in unity. Man should undertake such spiritual practices that will enable him to visualise unity. The fundamental basis for the apparent multiplicity is only one. Atma is the undercurrent in all names and forms. Atma means the power of consciousness. Man is not making any effort to know the principle of non-dualism. He is carried away by the multiplicity and thus is leading a life of ignorance. Realise that the same Atma dwells in one and all.

  • Man's life is bound by Kala, Karma, Karana and Kartavya (time, action, cause, duty). Due to the effect of the Kali age, man does not work hard; he has become lethargic. You have to sanctify your life by performing righteous action. Action is the cause for everything. It is very unfortunate that man has not understood the importance of action. He wants to lead an easy life. It is said, "Kashte Phali" (hard work alone yields rich rewards). The rewards that one gets will be commensurate with the efforts one puts in. One should recognise this truth and work hard accordingly. It is said in the Gita, "Karmanubandheeni Manushya Loke" (human society is bound by action). Nobody should waste time. Right from the time he wakes up in the morning, man should utilise his time and energy for the welfare of society. This is his main duty. He should realise that his welfare lies in the welfare of society.

  • Only truth and righteousness can confer peace and prosperity on the world today. Sathyam Vada; Dharmam Chara (speak truth; practise righteousness). This is the most important principle of Indian culture. Once you develop truth and righteousness, peace and love will automatically follow. Righteousness is the head of Indian culture and truth its feet. But today people have severed the head and feet of Indian culture, and are clinging on to the trunk of Artha and Kama (wealth and desire). What is the use of a mere trunk without the head and feet? People are striving to protect the country. The entire world is based on the principles of truth and righteousness. If you protect and practise truth and righteousness, they will in turn protect the country.

  • Nobody can estimate the infinite power of God. It can only be experienced in the heart. Love is the only yardstick to measure the power of Divinity. Hence, we have to develop love to experience Divinity. You have to think of God every moment. If you win the grace of God, you can overcome any obstacle and acquire any type of wealth. Man should contemplate on God, his only saviour incessantly. The world will never come to your rescue. Sarvada Sarva Kaleshu Sarvatra Hari Chintanam (everywhere, at all times and under all circumstances, contemplate on the Divine name). There is no greater Sadhana (spiritual exercise) than this. The essence of all Sadhanas is contained in this. In the Kali yuga, chanting of God's Name is the royal path to liberation.

  • There is a fundamental principle in this universe which is the prime mover. We must make efforts to understand that fundamental principle. First and foremost, one has to turn one's vision inwards and meditate upon the Atma Tattwa (Atmic Principle) present within. This Atma Tattwa can be realized only by constant Sadhana (spiritual practice). Several people give different names to the principle of Atma Tattwa. But, it has no name and form at all. It is beyond all names and forms. It is transcendental. If you are able to understand the Atma Tattwa, it amounts to understanding everything else.

  • Anyone donning a physical body cannot escape vicissitudes of life. Death follows birth and with the same certainty misery follows happiness. Sukhadukhe Samekruthwa Labhalabhau Jayajayau (one should remain equal-minded in happiness and sorrow, gain and loss, victory and defeat). Pleasure is an interval between two pains. Human life is for the purpose of investigating the Supreme Reality and not merely for eating, drinking and indulging in sensual pleasures. Every human being must make an effort to know his inner nature and understand his true identity.

  • Today man is subjected to untold suffering because he lacks human values. That which has the innate capability to burn is called fire. In the same manner, only the one with human values is a human being. One bereft of human values is not a human being at all. You may be highly educated and occupying an exalted position, but if you lack human values, you will be considered inhuman. Hence, drive away evil qualities in the first instance.

  • You see, hear, and experience many things in this world. They are nothing but the reflection, reaction, and resound of your inner being. All that you see in the outside world is actually a part of you. Consider this example. There is someone who hates you. Actually it is the hatred in you that has taken the form of hatred in him. In the same manner, adulation or denigration, good or evil are reflections of your own self. Whatever you see in the outside world, whatever you experience, be it pleasure or pain, has in fact come from within you.
