  • A star is shining within us and that is our spirit!
  • Either you lead a life which is luxurious on the material level or you lead a luxurious life of god’s blessings – one of the two you have to choose, the time has come.
  • You are not this body you are not this mind, you are the spirit, and this is the greatest truth.
  • Divinity is not a fashion, it is the way of life, and it is the need of your being. You have to become ‘that’.
  • Self-realization makes us humble, replace temper with compassion. The more innocent you are, the more blissful you will be.
  • Meditation is the only way you can grow because when you meditate, you are in silence, you are in thoughtless awareness and then the growth of awareness takes place.
  • Freedom is when you really get your own powers which are within you. In your central nervous system and in your conscious mind, you must feel the existence of the spirit.
  • After self-realisation it is easy to perceive the truth that all these religions were born on the same tree of spirituality, but that those in charge of each religion plucked the flowers from the living source and are now fighting each other with the dead flowers of merely partial truths.
  • You cannot know the meaning of your life until you are connected to the power that created you.
  • Self-realization is the first encounter with reality.
