Become Like Little Children

“In the spiritual life one becomes just like a little child – without resentment, without attachment, full of life and joy.”

Paramahansa Yogananda –

“Let the children come to me, do not hinder them; for to such belongs the kingdom of God. Truly, I say to you, whoever does not receive the kingdom of God like a child shall not enter it.”

Jesus Christ (from Mark 10:14-15) –

Jesus Christ said: “I tell you the truth, unless you change and become like little children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven. Therefore, whoever humbles himself like this child is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven. And whoever welcomes a little child like this in my name welcomes me.”

– Matthew 18:3-5

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 –

Let us pray for a League of Souls and a United World

“Let us pray in our hearts for a League of Souls and a United World. Though we may seem divided by race, creed, color, class, and political prejudices, still, as children of the one God we are able in our souls to feel brotherhood and world unity. May we work for the creation of a United World in which every nation will be a useful part, guided by God through man’s enlightened conscience. In our hearts we can all learn to be free from hate and selfishness. Let us pray for harmony among the nations, that they march hand in hand through the gate of a fair new civilization.”
