  • Motherhood is the most precious gift of God. Mothers are the makers of a nation's fortune, for they shape the sinews of its soul. These sinews are toughened by two lessons - fear of sin and fondness of virtue. As the mother, so the sweetness of culture. As the mother, so the progress of the nation. If mothers take care of their families, they will be protecting the nation. Mothers should foster in their children, love for truth, righteousness and narrate inspirational stories of great men and women.

  • Understand the truth that among the myriad forms of life, human life is the most sacred. Man should make an effort to understand his innate divine power and lead his life in a way so as to uphold Dharma (righteousness). Birds and beasts act according to their innate nature, but man is forgetting his responsibility of fostering righteousness. Many are under the mistaken notion that education is meant for Udyoga (employment). Udyoga without Yoga (communion with the Divine) is futile. Contemplation on God is true Yoga and Udyoga. That is the primary duty of man. Man’s life will shine forth brilliantly only when his mind is filled with divine love. The one who has total faith in God and love for God will lead a life of joy and bliss.

  • Ponder over all the things for which you have cried so far. You will find that you have craved only for paltry things, for momentary distinctions, for fleeting fame. Instead, you should cry only for God, for your own cleansing and consummation. You should weep, for the six cobras that have sheltered themselves in your mind, poisoning it with their venom: Lust, anger, greed, attachment, pride and malice. Quieten them as the snake charmer does with his swaying flute. The music that can tame them is the Name of God. Thereafter, they become playthings; you can handle them as you please. When these are laid low, you will gain equanimity and you will remain unaffected by honour or dishonour, profit or loss, joy or grief.

  • To attain the attitude of surrender, of dedication, you must have Faith in God. This world is His play; it is not an empty dream; it has its own purpose and use. It is the means by which one can discover God; see Him in the beauty, the grandeur, the order, the majesty of Nature. These are but shadows of His Glory and His Splendour. Upasana (adoration of God), leads to the knowledge that He is all; when you experience that there is no Second, that is Jnana (Spiritual Wisdom)!

  • What is 'Moksha'? It is giving up of the 'Anatma', the unreal. Suppose you want a glass of fruit juice, unless you throw away the water already in the glass, you cannot pour juice in to the glass. Similarly, unless you give up worldly desires, 'Atmabhava' (spirituality) cannot take root in you. When you spend your hours immersed in thoughts about God, you become free from evil ways. You will not be tempted to abuse others or harm them in any way. You begin to live in Love, accepting all events as His gifts. Then your home verily becomes heaven on Earth; the joy that bubbles in your heart is the symbol of Vaikunta (abode of Lord Vishnu); the earnestness and care that you evince in your work will symbolise Kailasha (the abode of Lord Shiva).

  • This day is New Year's Day only because you have decided to call it so; it is not astronomically or climatically different from yesterday or tomorrow. Even like this New Year's Day, many hundreds of thousands of such days have passed on earth and many thousands have been celebrated as festival days too. So too, this day has come and this too will be gone. If the New Year's Day is used by one to begin a new way of life, to take a step towards self-realisation or self-improvement through service, only then do the celebrations acquire meaning and significance.

  • What is meant by birth and death? To assume a body is birth and to cast off the same is death. It is out of delusion that man experiences the dualities of birth and death. When we inhale with the sound 'So', the life principle enters our body and when we exhale 'Ham', it goes out. Every moment, this process of inhalation and exhalation reminds us of our inherent divinity - 'So-ham' (I am God). So long as there is life-breath, the body is considered to be Shivam (auspicious). Once the life-breath ebbs away, it becomes Shavam (corpse). Both birth and death are related to the body and not to the life principle. Man experiences birth and death because of his body attachment. He will be released from the cycle of birth and death only when he gives up body attachment and surrenders himself completely to the Will of God.

  • Spirituality does not mean performing worship, going on pilgrimages or singing Bhajans. Spirituality lies in destroying the animal tendencies and rising to the level of divinity. So long as there are animal tendencies in man, he cannot rise to the level of divinity. You are neither a wild animal to cause fear in others nor a docile domestic animal to be afraid of others. You are born as a human being with noble human qualities. So, recognise your humanness and divinity. But man today is not able to realise this truth and, consequently, he is frittering away his life.

  • All names and forms are based on your feelings. God has no differences whatsoever. No one can comprehend the nature of Divinity. Actually, the principle of love that exists in all beings is the principle of Divinity. Love has no specific form. Divinity transcends name and form. In fact, all names and forms belong to the same God. He responds to the prayers of devotees in whatever form they worship Him. Hence, each one considers the form he worships to be superior to the other forms. It is a sign of ignorance to consider one form superior to the other. What is important is that your prayers should not be confined to mere words. They should be translated into action. It is easy to speak but not so easy to practise. True prayer is that which is translated into action.

  • It is a grave mistake to identify yourself with the body. Give up body attachment and develop Atmic consciousness. Only then will you understand and experience your true form, i.e., Atma. Otherwise, even the smallest physical ailments will make you feel anxious. Physical ailments are like passing clouds. So long as you are deluded by body consciousness, you will be affected by them. Once you give up body attachment, you are no more bound by the body and its limitations. When you sit in meditation, you forget your body. Meditation means giving up Dehabhimaana (body attachment) and developing Atmic awareness. Understand that you are not the body. You are "I". Everyone while referring to one's self uses the term "I", the principle of Atma. Hence, you are not the body. It is only an instrument. "I" is your true identity.

  • Love is light. It illumines your path and helps you reach the goal. Your journey of life will be safe and secure when you carry the light of love with you. Love is God. Live in love. Truly speaking, you are the very embodiments of love. Let the stream of love flow from one heart to another. Consider love as your life. This is your foremost duty. You may search anywhere in the world, you cannot find anything greater than love. You can conquer the whole world with the weapon of love. There is nothing that you cannot achieve with the power of love. Love is the supreme power. True human value lies in sharing and experiencing the supreme love. The power of love is unmatched. When you fill your heart with love, all people will become your brothers and sisters. You will not have enemies at all!

  • If only men knew the path to permanent joy and peace, they would not wander distracted among the bye-lanes of sensual pleasure. Just as the joy felt in dreams disappears when you wake, the joy felt in the waking stages too disappears when you wake into the higher awareness. Make best use of the present moment to become aware of the Divinity latent in all. When you die, you must not die like an animal or a worm, but as a Manava (Man) who has realised that he is Madhava (God). That is the consummation of all the years you spend in the human frame.

  • Today, people perform various Sadhanas (spiritual exercises) to experience divinity. Will God come closer to you because of these Sadhanas or does He go away from you if you do not perform them? No. It is only the Bhrama (delusion) that goes away from you when you perform the Sadhanas. As a result, you become closer to Brahma (God). You should make every effort to get rid of Bhrama. Give up the feeling that you are the body and you are the doer. Only then can you be free from delusion and fear. Reduce your body attachment. That is the Sadhana you are supposed to undertake. Spiritual practice does not lie in the performance of Japa (repetition of God's Name), Thapa (penance), Dhyana (meditation), etc. Develop firm faith that you are God. Remind yourself constantly, "I am God". Then you will become God.

  • From today onwards, the period of next six months is called 'Uttarayana' as the sun appears to move northwards in the sky. The northern direction, in Indian scriptures, is associated with the Gods, and so, these six months are considered specially suitable for Sadhana (spiritual discipline). But you must be concerned more with the 'Sun' in your inner firmament than in the depths of outer space, for you are concerned with the inner illumination, more than external light and energy. What is the Sadhana that will move the inner Sun Godward? God is hidden and obstructed by the clouds of egoism. Getting rid of egoism is the Sadhana to be practised. Service is the best cure for egoism; so, engage in it to relieve pain and grief of others to the extent that you can.

  • Every object in creation has five aspects, namely, Sath, Chith, Ananda, Rupa and Nama (existence, consciousness, bliss, form and name). The first three are eternal principles, whereas name and form are ephemeral. Sath, Chith and Ananda are the basis for name and form. People attribute various names and forms to God on the basis of their own feelings. They forget the three main principles of Sath, Chith and Ananda and assume name and form to be the sole reality. In reality, name and form are not permanent. But people are overwhelmed by name and form and ignore the eternal principles of Sath, Chith and Ananda. Consequently, they are deluded and tend to forget the mighty power of God behind the name and form.
