Vivekananda Quote – “One ounce of the practice of righteousness…”

One ounce of the practice of righteousness and of spiritual self-realization outweighs tons and tons of frothy talk and nonsensical sentiments. Show us one, but one, gigantic spiritual genius growing out of all this dry dust of ignorance and fanaticism… open the windows of your hearts to the clear light of truth, and sit like children at the feet of […]

Vivekananda Quote – “Ramakrishna used to tell a story of…”

Ramakrishna used to tell a story of some men who went into a mango orchard and busied themselves in counting the leaves, the twigs, and the branches, examining their colour, comparing their size, and noting down everything most carefully, and then got up a learned discussion on each of these topics… But one of them, more sensible than the others, […]

Vivekananda Quote – “It is an old law that we all get whatever we want…”

Vivekananda Quote – “When a farmer is irrigating his field…”

When a farmer is irrigating his field the water is already in the canals, only there are gates which keep the water in.

Vivekananda Quote – “The central secret is…”

The central secret is, therefore, to know that the various passions and feelings and emotions in the human heart are not wrong in themselves; only they have to be carefully controlled and given a higher and higher direction, until they attain the very highest condition of excellence.

Vivekananda Quote – “When, by analyzing his own mind, man comes face to face…”

When, by analyzing his own mind, man comes face to face, as it were, with something which is never destroyed, something which is, by its own nature, eternally pure and perfect, he will no more be miserable, no more unhappy. All misery comes from fear, from unsatisfied desire… When he knows that he is perfect, he will have no more […]
