Quotes from our Masters

“He alone sees truly, who sees the eternal, unattached, pure, wise and free Self in every creature and everything.

When all activities of the mind cease, what shines by itself is the Truth.”

“Serve all. Give all. Take nothing for yourself. Reduce your demands. Learn to live on a bare minimum. Be in the world, but not of it. Keep your freedom and be ever detached.”

“When our minds are purified through selfless action and made single-pointed through worship we cannot remain satisfied with the small achievements in worldly life.”
