We are responsible for what we are, and whatever we wish ourselves to be, we have the power to make ourselves. If what we are now has been the result of our own past actions, it certainly follows that whatever we wish to be in the future can be produced by our present actions; so we have to know how to act.

"The best portion of a good man's life:
his little,  nameless, unremembered acts of
kindness and love."

Great saints are the object-lessons of the Principle. But the disciples make the  saint the Principle, and then they forget the Principle in the person.

Christs and Buddhas are but  waves on the boundless ocean which I am. Bow down to nothing but your own  higher Self. Until you know that you are that very God of gods, there will never be any freedom for you.

If anyone steps on your ego, instantly, he becomes your enemy.
But Guru is a friend who constantly tramples your ego.

It is not sufficient to worship Krishna, Christ or Buddha without, if there is not the revealing and the formation of the Buddha, the Christ or Krishna in ourselves.

     The Four Noble Truths

चत्वारि आर्यसत्यानि (catvāri āryasatyāni) : The Four Noble Truths

  • दुःखम् (duḥkham): Suffering

    All existence is suffering.

    ?This is the noble truth of suffering: birth is suffering, aging is suffering, illness is suffering, death is suffering; sorrow, lamentation, pain, grief and despair are suffering; union with what is displeasing is suffering; separation from what is pleasing is suffering; not to get what one wants is suffering; in brief, the five aggregates subject to clinging are suffering.?

  • (दुःख) समुदयः ([duḥkha] samudayaḥ) : Origin (of Suffering)

    All suffering is caused by desire/craving/clinging.

    ?This is the noble truth of the origin of suffering: it is this craving which leads to renewed existence, accompanied by delight and lust, seeking delight here and there, that is, craving for sensual pleasures, craving for existence, craving for extermination.?

  • (दुःख) निरोधः ([duḥkha] nirodhaḥ) : Cessation (of Suffering)

    All Suffering can be ended by ending desire.

    ?This is the noble truth of the cessation of suffering: it is the remainderless fading away and cessation of that same craving, the giving up and relinquishing of it, freedom from it, nonreliance on it.?

  • (दुःखनिरोधः) मार्गः (duḥkhanirodhaḥ] mārgaḥ) : Path (to the Cessation of Suffering)

    Desire can be ended by following the Noble Eightfold Path.

    ?This is the noble truth of the way leading to the cessation of suffering: it is the Noble Eightfold Path; that is, right view, right intention, right speech, right action, right livelihood, right effort, right mindfulness and right concentration.?

Ask not how to control thoughts;rather find out why they are there at all.

God Helps Those who Help Themselves.



one day Mohammed noticed a Bedouin leaving his camel without tying it. He asked the Bedouin, "Why don't you tie down your camel?" The Bedouin answered, "I placed my trust in Allah." At that, Mohammed said, "Tie your camel and place your trust in Allah."
