Spirituality knows no occupational barriers. It is universal. It is transcendental. It is not reserved for black people or white people or rich or poor. It is the divine gift of the Supreme Consciousness to all earth’s children. Spirituality (dharma) is all-embracing. It is the birthright of all people.
The variations in local customs cannot be removed by legal force or by dictatorial rule. If an attempt is made to destroy common practices, languages, local manners and customs in the name of national or human unity, violence and mutual distrust will result and collective life will be doomed.
The meaning of spiritual practice is to look upon every human being, every object of this universe as one integral entity. To jeopardise the unity of the human race by creating factions is not the purpose of spirituality.
What is dogma? Dogma is an idea with a rigid boundary line, which won’t allow you to go beyond the periphery of that boundary line. Thus dogma goes against the fundamental spirit of the human mind. The human mind won’t tolerate anything rigid. It wants movement – not only movement, but accelerated movement. Humans want […]
Engage yourself in such useful pursuits that even the worst of your enemies hardly has any chance to despise you; engage yourself in such a manner so that you have satisfaction in your mind also, that you didn’t waste your time on this earth.
No person in this world is powerless. Whoever has come on this earth has been graced with some amount of power.
Until changes are effected in the human mind, no permanent world solution is possible. Behind all the strife, cruelty and mistrust within humanity, there is misguided intellect. That is, intellect is not moving on the right path, it is not connected to the collective welfare.
If you want to help someone, you should help him a little at first, not all at once. You should help a person in accordance with his needs, not too much, not totally helping – otherwise he will not try for his own development. You help him a little, then let him stand on his […]
This human society is one – it is a singular entity. It cannot be divided, it must not be divided. And we mustn’t let anyone create divisive tendencies.
Every age had its own flora and fauna and it disappeared with them. Every tree and every creature of every age and stratum is created by the Divine. None is unimportant. What is happening in the universe is the gradual death of one created being and the gradual emergence of another, Therefore, whatever will come, […]
No power in heaven and earth can separate me from my children. Even if this universe comes to an end, I will be with them in the expressionless Cosmos. My children – be they gentle, be they naughty – they are mine.
Hating is not a courageous quality or a creditable tendency. When every being is the Divine’s own creation, how can you hate anyone? How is it possible that you meditate upon one form of the Infinite and abuse another?
To attain complete success in life, one must have mental equipose, mental balance. There must not be any complex in the mind – neither superiority nor inferiority complex. Now, to bring about mental balance, you should behave with every human being in such a way that this superiority complex or inferiority complex develops neither in […]
There is no chance for the welfare of the world unless the condition of women is improved. It is not possible for a bird to fly with one wing.
From the inanimate to the animate goes the process of evolution. Consider a piece of stone for instance. It has neither the power of action nor the sensation of mind. What is the reason? It is because hitherto there has been no manifestation of mind in the stone at all. Consider the trees and plants […]
Explaining humanity and humanism in a new light will widen the path of human progress, will make it easier to tread. Neohumanism will make people understand that they are not merely ordinary creatures. This philosophy will liberate them from all inferiority feelings and defects and make them aware of their own importance; it will inspire […]
In this universe, there are so many people who do not get any respect from others – the downtrodden, half-fed, half-naked humanity. You are to pay respect to those downtrodden people. You are to elevate their standard, their socio-economico-cultural standard. If you do not pay respect to them, how can you serve them? You are […]
The darkness of evolutionary night began to fade centuries ago when the first ape-like creature deserted his tree-branch kingdom and shambled out into the light of the plain. He was guided by something he could not understand: something un-apelike and impossible for his comrades. Somehow, somewhere in his seething body chemistry, something had changed. In […]
