• The soul is by its nature pure and perfect, infinite in

power and blessed.


• Never think there is anything impossible for the soul.
• He who has realised the Atman becomes the
storehouse of great power.
• Know the Atman alone and give up all other vain
words.
• PROCLAIM THE GLORY OF THE ATMAN WITH
THE ROAR OF A LION, and impart fearlessness unto
all beings by saying “Arise, awake and stop not till the
goal is reached”.
• Believe that the soul is immortal, infinite, and all-
powerful.
• The soul has no sex; why should it degrade itself with
sex ideas?
• These are states, and states must ever change; but the
nature of the soul is bliss, peace, unchanging. We have
not to get it, we have it; only wash away the dross and
see it.
• All knowledge is in the soul.
• Always talk and hear and reason about this Atman.
• Attma (is) the aim of all.
• Freedom is inseparable from the nature of the Atman.
This is ever pure, ever perfect, ever unchangeable.
This Atman you can never know. We can say nothing
about the Atman but ‘not this, not this’.
• There is no knowledge in nature; all knowledge comes
from the human soul.
• There is no distinction of sex in the soul.
• Never think there is anything impossible for the soul. It is the
greatest heresy to think so. If there is any sin, this is the
only sin----------------------to say that you are weak, or
others are weak.
• Purest soul dispels ignorance, fear and weakness.
• Everything in the universe is struggling to complete a circle,
to return to its source, to return to its only real source, Atman.
The search for happiness is a struggle to find the balance, to restore
the equilibrium.
Morality is the struggle of the bound will to get free and is the
proof that we have come from perfection.
• The goal of each soul is freedom, mastery-freedom from the
slavery of matter and thought, mastery of external and
internal nature.
• Speak of this Atman to all.
• Look not for the truth in any religion; IT IS HERE IN
THE HUMAN SOUL, THE MIRACLE OF ALL
MIRACLES-------------------------- IN THE HUMAN
SOUL, THE EMPORIUM OF ALL KNOWLEDGE,
THE MINE OF ALL
EXISTENCE------------------------ seek here.
• Mind you, the great benefit in this life is struggle. It is
through that we pass. If there is any road to Heaven, it is
through Hell. Through Hell to Heaven is always the way.
When the soul has wrestled with circumstance and has met
death, a thousand times death on the way, but nothing
daunted, has struggled forward again and again and yet
again-------------then the soul comes out as a giant and laughs
at the ideal he has been struggling for, because he finds how
much greater is he that the ideal.
• ALL powers and ALL purity and ALL
greatness----------------- EVERY THING IS IN THE
SOUL.
• Even this world, this body and mind are superstitions;
WHAT INFINITE SOULS YOU ARE! And to be
tricked by twinkling stars! It is a shameful condition.
YOU ARE DIVINITIES; the twinkling stars owe their
existence to you.
• ONLY THE FOOLS RUSH AFTER SENSE-ENJOYMENTS.
It is easy to live in the senses. It is easier to run in the old
groove, eating and drinking; but what these modern
philosophers want to tell you is to take these comfortable ideas
and put the stamp of religion on them. Such a doctrine is
dangerous. DEATH LIES IN THE SENSES. LIFE ON THE
PLANE OF THE SPIRIT IS THE ONLY LIFE, LIFE ON
ANY OTHER PLANE IS MERE DEATH; THE WHOLE
OF THIS LIFE CAN BE ONLY DESCRIBED AS A
GYMNASIUM. WE MUST GO BEYOND IT TO ENJOY
REAL LIFE.
• ALL KNOWLEDGE IS WITHIN US. ALL
PERFECTION IS THERE ALREADY IN THE SOUL.
• The spirit will triumph in the long run.
• The spirit is reflected in mind and in everything.
• Happiness is only found in the Spirit.
• Spirit speaks unto spirit in silence, and yet in most
unmistakable language.
• To quicken the spirit, the impulse must come from
another soul.
• Let us worship the spirit in spirit, standing on spirit. Let
the foundation be spirit, the middle spirit, the
culmination spirit.
• Man should hunger for one thing alone, the spirit,
because spirit alone exists.
• If your ideal is matter, matter shalt thou be. Behold! Our
ideal is the spirit. That alone exists. Nothing else exists,
and like Him we live for ever.
• Stand upon the Self, then only can we truly love the world.
Take a very, very high stand; knowing our universal nature,
we must look with perfect calmness upon all the panorama of
the world. It is but baby’s play, and we know that, so cannot
be disturbed by it. If the mind is pleased with praise, it will
be displeased with blame. All pleasures of the senses or
even of the mind are evanescent, but within ourselves is the
one true unrelated pleasure, dependent upon nothing. It is
perfectly free, it is bliss. The more our bliss is within, the
more spiritual we are. The pleasure of the Self is what the
world calls religion.
• Love all things only through and for the Self.
• Do not injure another. Love everyone as your own self,
because the whole universe is one. In injuring another, I am
injuring my self; in loving another, I am loving myself.
• Be one with the universe, be one with Him.
• “Not I, but thou”----------say it, feel it, live it.
• See God in everything and everywhere.
• The seeing of many is the great sin of all the world. See all
as Self and love all; let all idea of separateness go.
• The god in you is the god in all. If you have not known this,
you have known nothing. How can there be difference? It is
all one. Every being is the temple of the most high; if you
can see that, good, if not, spirituality has yet to come to you.
• If we enjoy everything in the Self, and as the Self, no misery
or reaction will come.
• Seeing difference is the cause of all misery, and ignorance
is the cause of seeing difference.
• Happiness belongs to him who knows this oneness, who
knows he is one with this universe.
• Come out into the universe of light. Everything in the
universe is yours, stretch out your arms and embrace it with
love.
• Love is simply an expression of this infinite unity.
• Love binds, love makes for that oneness.
• You are one with the universe.
• We must not look down with contempt on others. All of us
are going towards the same goal. The difference between
the weakness and strength is one of degree; the difference
between virtue and vice is one of degree; the difference
between heaven and hell is one of degree; the difference
between life and death is one of degree; all difference in
this world are of degree, and not of kind, because oneness
is the secret of everything.
• Good and evil are our slaves, not we theirs. Children finding
glass beads in a mud puddle, that is the good of the world.
Look at it with calm complacency; see good and evil as
the same, both are merely ‘God’s play’; enjoy all.
• There is but one basis of well-being, social, political or
spiritual----------to know that I and my brother are one. This
is true for all countries and all people.
• All the differentiation in substance is made by name
and form.
• You and I are one.
• Love makes no distinction between man and man.
• The highest expression of love is unification.
• Love binds, love makes for that oneness.
• Stand up, men and women, in the spirit, dare to believe
in the Truth, dare to practise the Truth! The world
requires a few hundred bold men and women. Practise
that boldness which dares know the truth, which dares
show the truth in life, which does not quake before
death, nay, welcomes death, makes a man know that he
is the spirit, that in the whole universe, nothing can kill
him. Then you will be free.
• The Vedas say the whole world is a mixture of
independence and dependence, of freedom and slavery,
but through it all shines the soul independent, immortal,
pure, perfect, holy.
• Power will come, glory will come, goodness will come,
purity will come, and everything that is excellent will
come when this sleeping soul is roused to self-conscious
activity.
• To quicken the spirit, the impulse must come from
another soul.
• You must take off your mind from lust and lucre, must
discriminate always between the real and the
unreal--------------must settle down into the mood of
bodiless ness with the brooding thought that you are
not this body, and must always have the realisation
that you are the all-pervading Atman.
• Turn thy gaze inward, where resides the Paramatman.
• All truth is eternal. Truth is nobody’s property; no race,
no individual can lay any exclusive claim to it. Truth is
the nature of all souls.
• The worst lie that you ever tell yourself is that you were born a
sinner or a wicked man. He alone is a sinner who sees a sinner
in another man. Suppose there is a baby here, and you place a
bag of gold on the table. Suppose a robber comes and takes the
gold away. To the baby it is all the same, because there is no
robber inside, there is no robber outside. To sinners and vile
men, there is vileness outside, but not to good men. So the
wicked see this universe as a hell, and the partially good see it
as heaven, while the perfect beings realize it as God Himself.
Then alone the veils fall from the eyes, and the man, purified
and cleansed, finds his whole vision changed. The bad dreams
that have been torturing him for millions of years, all vanish,
and he who was thinking of himself either as a man, or a god,
or a demon, he who was thinking of himself as living in low
places, in high places, on earth, in heaven, and so on, finds that
he is really omnipresent, that all time is in him, and that he is
not in time; that all the heavens are in him, that he is not in any
heaven, and that all the gods that man ever worshipped are in
him, and that he is not in any one of those gods. He was the
manufacturer of gods and demons, of men and plants, and
animals and stones, and the real nature of man now stands
unfolded to him as being higher than heaven, more perfect than
this universe of ours, more infinite than infinite time, more
omnipresent than omnipresent ether. Thus, alone man
becomes fearless, and becomes free. Then all delusions cease,
all miseries vanish, all fears come to an end for ever. Birth goes
away, and with it death; pains fly, and with them fly away
pleasures; earths vanish, and with them vanish heavens; bodies
vanish, and with them vanishes the mind also. For that man the
whole universe disappears, as it were. This searching, moving,
continuous struggle of forces stops for ever, and that which was
manifesting itself as force and matter, as struggles of nature, as
nature itself, as heavens and earths and plants and animals and
men and angels, and all that becomes transfigured into one
infinite, unbreakable, unchangeable existence, and the knowing
man finds that he is one with that existence. “Even as clouds of
various colours come before the sky, remain there for a second
and then vanish away,” even so before this soul are all these
visions coming, of earths and heavens, of the moon and the
gods, of pleasures and pains; but they all pass away, leaving the
one infinite, blue, unchangeable sky. The sky never changes; it
is the clouds that change. It is a mistake to think that the sky is
changed. It is a mistake to think that we are impure, that we are
limited, that we are separate. The real man is the One Unit
Existence.
----------------------------THE REAL AND THE APPARENT MAN
• Known, my soul, / you are Divine.

MODIFIED
• The seeing of many is the great sin of all the world. See all
as Self and love all; let all idea of separateness go.
