  • Bliss has to be sought not through accumulation of material wealth, but through sacrifice and promotion of the welfare of one's fellow beings.

    Thyaga (sacrifice) is recommended by the Vedas as the only path to immortality. Give in plenty, give gladly, and with gratitude to God.

    Selfishness is the canker that destroys charity. Though one is aware that a certain act is wrong, selfishness does not allow him to desist. But, this weakness can be overcome by steady determination.

    Share with others the knowledge and skills you have earned, the ideas and ideals you have benefited by and the joy you have won by discipline and dedication. Sharing will not diminish them or devalue them. On the other hand, they will shine with added splendor.

  • Humanness is a marvelous thing. It is boundless and significant. The term 'man' does not refer just to the physical body.
    A human being is a composite of body, mind and Spirit (Atma). To perform actions through the body, understand them through the mind, and have the Atma as a witness to both these - that constitutes living as a human being.
    Action, awareness and registration - these three manifest the meaning of human life. It is sheer ignorance to equate human existence with the body alone. You should grasp the nature and aim of human existence and lead a meaningful life.
    First of all there is the mind. Only one with a mind can be called a man.
    As you think, so do you become.            - BABA

  • The river strives, yearns and struggles to merge with the sea from which it has come. It has that consummation ever in its consciousness. It attempts to make itself pure and pellucid so that it may be welcomed by its source. It overcomes every obstacle of terrain in order to journey successfully towards its goal. Man too must utilize all the physical, mental, intellectual and moral endowments that God has granted him so that he may journey to the goal of Self-Realization.

  • When a white paint is added to a black paint, The black lightens to a dark gray. When more white is added to the dark gray, It turns to a lighter shade of grey. As more white is added, the black in it diminishes, And it comes to a point, the black becomes white.

    In the same way, consider Me to be the white paint, and you being the black paint. With every little of Me added to you, Your dark karmas begin to lessen, And your true nature slowly begins to reveal. The more you add Me into your life, The impurity diminishes, Leaving you more pure each time.

    At a point, all the black will be transformed to white. And all the "Myness" will merge into the "Oneness".

  • LET WORRIES COME AND GO.

    Let them not affect your inner peace. If you can retain mental poise then, from the midst of 'chintas' (worries) will be born 'chintamani' (wish fulfilling stone).

    The day you roam like a mad person chanting my name, from that day I will follow you about also like a mad man, to ensure that you are always in a state of bliss.

  • Birth as a human being is a rare and unique opportunity. For, man is endowed with a discriminating intelligence, the power to reason out the best among alternative courses of action. The tongue that does not chant the name of God, the hand that knows no charity, the years of life that know no peace of mind, talents that do not find fulfillment, a life that has not garnered wisdom, a temple where there is no atmosphere of reverence, speech that does not communicate knowledge - all these are of no worth.

  • The wise will not give room in their hearts for covetousness and possessiveness.

    How can you proclaim that God is the Indweller and Motivator of all beings, while all the while planning and scheming for profit! Stop a while and examine your habits and activities; analyze them; evaluate them on the touchstone of morality, truth and fortitude.

    Give up all that drags you into evil; strengthen all that lifts you nearer to God. Do not be disheartened that you have to suffer the consequences of what you have done.         -BABA

  • Envy and greed emanate from the ego and have to be carefully watched and controlled. Like the tadpole's tail, the ego will fall away when one grows in wisdom. It must fall away; if it is cut, the poor tadpole will die. So, don't worry about the ego; develop wisdom, contemplate on the ephemeral nature of the objective world. Then the tail of the ego will no longer be evident.

  • Educated persons, nowadays, are concerned solely about their own well-being and that of their families, and have no interest in the welfare of the world.

    Education should aim at making a person take pleasure in promoting the well-being of all people. As a person grows up, he develops associations with relations, friends, teachers and many others. It is through these numerous relationships that one's human qualities develop.

    Without these associations, the individual would remain at the animal level. One's human nature is developed by society and contacts with kinsmen, friends and others.

    You have to show your gratitude to all of them by striving for their well-being.- Baba

  • Seek and remain in good company; keep association with the holy. Being in the midst of such spiritual heroes, you can fight against evil with greater chance of success. Being in the company of the holy is like the bit and bridle for the wanton steed, the dam and canal for the raging flood. The value of holy places consists in just this: kindred spirits congregate there and contribute to the deepening of spiritual yearning. You can take sweet and sustaining counsel in such places and strengthen your faith and devotion.

  • Sandalwood gives more and more fragrance when it is subjected to more and more grinding. The sugarcane yields juice as it is chewed more and more. Gold gets refined when it is melted in the fire.

    So also, a true devotee will not falter in his love for God even when he faces troubles and obstacles in his life.

     God tests His devotees only to lift them up to a higher level on the spiritual ladder. -BABA

  • The Upanishads declare that immortality can be experienced only through Thyaga (renunciation or sacrifice). This renunciation does not mean giving up hearth and home, kith and kin. It means giving up the transient and impermanent things of the world. This calls for discrimination between what is permanent and what is perishable, what is good and what is bad. Only then can man discover the Divine principle within him.

  • The eye which is scarce two inches long can see millions of miles into space, but is incapable of seeing itself ! Man too is as shrewd and as weak as the eye.

    He can analyze others' motives, count others' faults and map out others' skills and capacities, but he is powerless to analyze himself, his feelings and his emotions. Unwilling to discover his own faults, he cannot assess his innate skill and realize his inner reality !

    But the power can be acquired if you keep company with Sadhakas (aspirants for spiritual progress), not otherwise.  -BABA

  • Man today is knocking on doors other than that of God. Man now is praying to God only for worldly possessions. Man should seek the gift of spiritual knowledge that can bring fulfillment to life. However, man today has acquired proficiency in various skills and has mastered many fields of knowledge, but he has not acquired the peace that is his due. Science can offer only temporary worldly comforts; spirituality alone can give you enduring bliss.
