Living with the Himalayan Masters

“The yogi endowed with complete enlightenment, sees through the eye of knowledge the entire universe in his own and regards everything as the Self and nothing else.”

“Do not be overjoyed if you get a fortune, neither should you be dejected if you lose it. Your mind should be well balanced.”

“All the religions of the world have come out of one Truth. If we follow religion without practicing the Truth, it is like the blind leading the blind. Those who belong to God love all. Love is the universal religion. The merciful one exceeds the borders of religion and perceives the undivided, absolute Truth.”

“The great sages do not identify themselves with any particular religion or creed. They are above all such distinctions. They belong to the whole of humanity.”

Swami Rama – (all quotes from “Living with the Himalayan Masters“)

Ahimsa

"Der Herr ist ‘Ahimsa’, die Zuflucht vor allem Leid; er fügt niemandem willentlich Schmerzen oder Verletzungen zu; Leid entseht durch Mißbrauch des freien Willens – wenn sich der Mensch mit der Täuschung der Dualität identifiziert."

aus Paramahansa Yoganandas Kommentar zum Kapitel XVI Vers 1-3 der Bhagavad-Gita

Self-Realization

“Self-realization is the knowing – in body, mind and soul – that we are one with the omnipresence of God; that we do not have to pray that it come to us, that we are not merely near it all times, but that God’s omnipresence is our omnipresence; that we are just as much a part of Him now as we ever will be. All we have to do is improve our knowing.”

Paramahansa Yogananda –

Conscious Breathing

“Feelings come and go like clouds in a windy sky. Conscious breathing is my anchor.”

Thich Nhat Hanh

A Sincere and Open Heart

“If you have a sincere and open heart, you naturally feel self-worth and confidence, and there is no need to be fearful of others.”

His Holiness, the Dalai Lama
