Holiness
Is good.
Selflessness
Is infinitely better.

Self-offering
Is an unparalleled opportunity
To claim all as one’s very own.

29 May

We are searching everywhere
For peace,
Which is already
Deep within us.

Sri Chinmoy, Seventy-Seven Thousand Service-Trees, part 22

28 May

Do you not think
That you lose so much
Of your precious time
By thinking and thinking
And thinking of others?

Sri Chinmoy, Seventy-Seven Thousand Service-Trees, part 22, Agni Press, 2001

27 May

Unlike the ordinary life,
In the spiritual life
Every moment counts;
Every moment is extremely valuable.

Sri Chinmoy, Seventy-Seven Thousand Service-Trees, part 22, Agni Press, 2001

The time to be really happy
Is now,
Here at the very place
Where you are.

The world belongs
To the world-lovers
And not
To the world-preachers.

Every day
You can be true to yourself
A little more.

The music of the heart
Begins
Where the words of the mind
Stop.

One of the main faults
Of a fool
Is that he never changes
His mind.

“How is it that a man does not know himself, something which ought to be the easiest of all his endeavours? He does not know himself precisely because he identifies himself with the ego and not with his real Self.”

Sri Chinmoy, Yoga and the spiritual life. The journey of India’s Soul, Agni Press, 1971

“No price is too great to pay for inner peace. Peace is the harmonious control of life. It is vibrant with life-energy. It is a power that easily transcends all our worldly knowledge. Yet it is not separate from our earthly existence. If we open the right avenues within, this peace can be felt here and now.”

Sri Chinmoy, Yoga and the spiritual life. The journey of India’s Soul., Agni Press, 1971

19 May

“We must not allow our past to torment and destroy the peace of our heart. Our present good and divine actions can easily counteract our bad and undivine actions of the past. If sin has the power to make us weep, meditation has undoubtedly the power to give us joy, to endow us with the divine Wisdom.”

Sri Chinmoy, Yoga and the spiritual life. The journey of India’s Soul., Agni Press, 1971

“What is Yoga? Yoga is self-conquest. Self-conquest is God-realisation. He who practises Yoga does two things with one stroke: he simplifies his whole life and he gets a free access to the Divine.”

Sri Chinmoy, Yoga and the spiritual life. The journey of India’s Soul, Agni Press, 1971

Sweetness-fulfilment
Shall dawn on your eyes
If you can empty your mind
Of all complaints.

Sri Chinmoy, Twenty-Seven Thousand Aspiration-Plants, part 151, Agni Press, 1991

16 May

God does not want you to suffer
From a guilt-stricken conscience.
He wants you to forgive and forget
Your past
Once and for all
And begin a new life
With a new promise-dawn.

Sri Chinmoy, Twenty-Seven Thousand Aspiration-Plants, part 151, Agni Press, 1991

15 May

“God is here where I am,
But my mind tells me
That He is elsewhere.”

Sri Chinmoy, Seventy-Seven Thousand Service-Trees, part 33, Agni Press, 2003

14 May

If you deliberately keep teeming problems
Locked inside your mind,
What can your poor soul
And your poor heart
Do for you?

Sri Chinmoy, Twenty-Seven Thousand Aspiration-Plants, part 151, Agni Press, 1991

13 May

Do you want to be always happy?
Then give up fighting
For negativity
And learn the beautiful art
Of self-encouragement.”

– Sri Chinmoy, Ten Thousand Flower-Flames, part 12
