Quotes and Quips

Whoever knows It as 'I am Brahman' becomes the universe. Brihadaranyaka Upanishad (1.4.10)

All the powers in the universe are already ours. It is we who have put our hands before our eyes and cry that it is dark. Swami Vivekananda, (1863-1902) founder Ramakrishna Mission

The mind cannot know what is beyond itself; but the mind is known by what is beyond, that essence of timelessness and spacelessness which makes everything perceivable, yet itself is beyond perception. Nisargadatta Maharaj (1897-1981), Hindu sage

I shall not make my body a tomb for other animals. Leonardo da Vinci (1452--1519), Italian polimath, renaissance luminary, a vegetarian

A mountain is composed of tiny grains of earth. The ocean is made up of tiny drops of water. Even so, life is but an endless series of little details, actions, speeches and thoughts, the consequences of even the least of them is far-reaching.

The outer worship is approaching God properly, presenting ourselves acceptably. It is to offer our love, our adoration and then to speak out our prayer, our petition. The inner worship is to enjoy God's presence and not rush away, to stay, to sit, to meditate awhile and bask in the shakti, endeavoring to realize the Self within. Satguru Sivaya Subramuniyaswami (1927-2001), founder of Hinduism Today
