Of all the creatures, only a human being can explore and know dimensions beyond the physical.
The yogic system is not a philosophy, ideology, religion, or even teaching. It is just the user’s manual for the human mechanism to function at its highest possible level.
The science of yoga is not just about health and fitness. It is the ultimate solution for every aspect of human existence.
If you are miserable when you are alone, you are obviously in bad company.
There is too much talk about heaven because too many people have made a hell out of themselves.
Too many people are hungry not because there is a dearth of food. It is simply because there is a dearth of love and care in human hearts.
If you look at the world today, lies are mainstream – truth is a fringe phenomenon. Time to reverse this for Human fulfillment.
A society that fails to treat the Girl-Child as an honored privilege will fail to blossom. There is no complete picture of Humanity without equal opportunities and participation.
All ecological problems are rooted in the irresponsible growth of the human population.
Love is not an emotion. It is your very existence.
The spirit of Revolution should always permeate the soul of humanity, so that the reactionary forces may not accumulate to check its eternal onward march
By Revolution, we mean the ultimate establishment of an order of society which may not be threatened by such breakdown, and in which the sovereignty of the proletariat should be recognized and a world federation should redeem humanity from the bondage of capitalism and misery of imperial wars.
You must not lose faith in humanity. Humanity is an ocean; if a few drops of the ocean are dirty, the ocean does not become dirty.
A generous heart, kind speech, and a life of service and compassion are the things which renew humanity.
Patriotism cannot be our final spiritual shelter; my refuge is humanity. I will not buy glass for the price of diamonds, and I will never allow patriotism to triumph over humanity as long as I live.
Take off the veil of hypnotism which you have cast upon the world, send not out thoughts and words of weakness unto humanity.
Just as the law of gravitation existed before its discovery and would exist if all humanity forgets it, so it is with the laws that govern the spiritual world. The moral, ethical and spiritual relations between soul and soul and between individual spirits and the Father of all spirits were there before their discovery and would remain even if we forget them.
You all know that certain things are necessary to make a religion. First of all, there is the book. The power of the book is simply marvellous! Whatever it be, the book is the centre round which human allegiance gathers. Not one religion is living today but has a book. With all its rationalism and tall talk, humanity still clings to the books. In your country every attempt to start a religion without a book has failed. In India sects rise with great success, but within a few years they die down, because there is no book behind them. So in every other country.
I am in every religion as the thread through a string of pearls. Wherever thou seest extraordinary holiness and extraordinary power raising and purifying humanity, know thou that I am there.
It is the patient building of character, the intense struggle to realize the truth, which alone will tell in the future of humanity.
No one should be judged by their defects. The great virtues a person has are his or her especially. But their errors are the common weakness of humanity and should never be counted in estimating a person’s character.
Go on bravely. Do not expect success in a day or a year. Always hold on to the highest. Be steady. Avoid jealousy and selfishness. Be obedient and eternally faithful to the cause of truth, humanity, and your country, and you will move the world.
It is only work that is done as freewill offering to humanity and to nature that does not bring with it any binding attachment.
Be not afraid , for all great power throughout the history of humanity has been with the people. From out of their ranks have come all the greatest geniuses of the world, and history can only repeat itself. Be not afraid of anything. You will do marvellous work.
