Sri Swami Sivananda
Ta musique incite mon âme à danser;
j'entends Ta flûte dans le murmure du vent;
les vagues de la mer conservent le rythme de Tes pas dansants.
A travers toute la nature, j'entends jouer Ta musique mon Bien-Aimé;
tout en dansant, mon âme chante sa joie.

Pir-o-Murshid Inayat Khan
Deine Musik regt mich zum Tanzen an;
im Säuseln des Windes vernehme ich Dein Flötenspiel;
die Wogen des Meeres bewahren den Rhythmus Deiner tanzenden Schritte.
In der ganzen Natur vernehm'ich Deine Musik, mein Geliebter;
im Tanze verkündet meine Seele in Liedern ihre Freude.

Pir-o-Murshid Inayat Khan
If there is righteousness in the heart, there will be beauty in the character.
If there is beauty in the character, there will be harmony in the home.
Ir there in harmony in the home, there will be order in the nation.
When there is order in the nation, there will be peace in the world.

Sathya Sai Baba
You can have what you want to have, do what you want to do, or be what you want to be in this lifetime-including Self-Realization. You only need to tap into the Infinite Power within you, which is pure Consciousness, and from That Awareness assume the feeling that would be yours if you were already who and what you desire to be.

Bhagavan Ramana Maharshi
Wenn du fällst, geh den Weg trotzdem mit Enthusiasmus weiter in der Vorstellung, dass dein Versagen dazu gedacht war, dich wachsamer zu machen.

Mata Amritanandamayi
Reine Liebe ist nichts anderes, als den Geist von allen Ängsten zu entleeren und alle Masken herunterzureissen.
Sie enthüllt das Selbst, wie es ist.

Mata Amritanandamayi
Weltliche Beziehungen gleichen Begegnungen an einer Bushaltestelle. Jeder steigt an irgendeiner Haltestelle aus. Du allein wirst zurückbleiben. Suche nach der Wahrheit, ohne dich in Träumen zu verlieren.

Mata Amritanandamayi
Wir können die Gegebenheiten des Lebens nicht ändern, aber unsere Einstellung ihnen gegenüber.

Mata Amritanandamayi
Unser Egoismus ist das Haupthindernis für unsere Annäherung an Gott. Egoismus verschwindet automatisch, wenn wir Mitgefühl für andere hegen.

Mata Amritanandamayi
The moment you decide to open your heart to grace you will be filled.

Swami Muktananda
Whether one believes in a religion or not, and whether one believes in rebirth or not, there isn't anyone who doesn't appreciate kindness and compassion"

His Holiness the XIV Dalai Lama
You can make the Self manifest before you. It exists within for your sake, right in the heart. You cannot see It through the eyes, nor can you attain It through speech. The tongue can speak about It, but the true nature of the Self is silence.

Swami Muktananda
Once you experience the inner silence you never feel empty, because in the inner silence you can hear the stars speak, you can hear the voice of the water, you can hear the voice of the great Self. You hear and you understand.
Gurumayi Chidvilasananda
Love your own Self. Love is within you. Regard everyone with respect because the rays of God are within everybody. Respect yourself, do not put yourself down, do not make yourself weak with bad thoughts. Perform your actions with justice…. Live in that way. Stay away from injustice. Stay very close to God.
Swami Muktananda
When we have prayed and aspired and hungered for the truth for a long time, for many, many lives, and when our karma has become sufficiently purified, a kind of miracle takes place. And this miracle, if we can understand and use it, can lead to the ending of ignorance forever: The inner teacher, who has been with us always, manifests in the form of the “outer teacher,” who, almost as if by magic, we actually encounter. This is the most important encounter of any lifetime.
Sogyal Rinpoche
Sometimes people think that when they meditate there should be no thoughts and emotions at all; and when thoughts and emotions do arise, they become annoyed and exasperated with themselves and think they have failed. Nothing could be further from the truth. There is a Tibetan saying: “It’s a tall order to ask for meat without bones, and tea without leaves.” As long as you have a mind, you will have thoughts and emotions.
Sogyal Rinpoche
Whatever our lives are like, our buddha nature is always there. And it is always perfect. We say that not even the buddhas can improve it in their infinite wisdom, nor can sentient beings spoil it in their seemingly infinite confusion.
Our true nature could be compared to the sky, and the confusion of the ordinary mind to clouds. Some days the sky is completely obscured by clouds. When we are down on the ground, looking up, it is very difficult to believe that there is anything else there but clouds. Yet we have only to fly in a plane to discover above the clouds a limitless expanse of clear blue sky. From up there, the clouds we assumed were everything seem so small and so far away down below.
We should always try to remember: The clouds are not the sky and do not “belong” to it. They only hang there and pass by in their slightly ridiculous and nondependent fashion. And they can never stain or mark the sky in any way.
Sogyal Rinpoche
For meditation to happen, calm and auspicious conditions have to be created. Before we have mastery over our minds, we need first to calm their environment.
At the moment, our minds are like a candle flame: unstable, flickering, constantly changing, fanned by the violent winds of our thoughts and emotions. The flame will burn steadily only when we can calm the air around it; so we can only begin to glimpse and rest in the nature of mind when we have stilled the turbulence of our thoughts and emotions. On the other hand, once we have found a stability in our meditation, noises and disturbances of every kind will have far less impact.
Sogyal Rinpoche
Gradually, as you remain open and mindful, and use a technique to focus your mind more and more, your negativity will slowly be defused; you begin to feel well in your own skin, or, as the French say, être bien dans sa peau (“well in your own skin”). From this comes release and a profound ease. I think of this practice as the most effective form of therapy and self-healing.
Sogyal Rinpoche
Every single negative thing we have ever thought or done has ultimately arisen from our grasping at a false self, and our cherishing of that false self, making it the dearest and most important element in our lives. All those negative thoughts, emotions, desires, and actions that are the cause of our negative karma are engendered by self-grasping and self-cherishing. They are the dark, powerful magnet that attracts to us, life after life, every obstacle, every misfortune, every anguish, every disaster, and so they are the root cause of all the sufferings of samsara.
Sogyal Rinpoche
L'être humain est partie d'un tout, communément appelé l'Univers, une partie limitée dans le temps et l'espace. Il se perçoit lui-même, avec ses pensées et ses émotions, comme une entité séparée, une sorte d'illusion d'optique, créée par sa conscience, et qui le maintien dans une sorte de prison, une prison qui le limite à ses propres désirs et qui fait qu'il n'accorde son affection qu'à ceux qui lui sont proche. La tâche de l'être humain est de se libérer de cette prison, en élargissant le cercle de ceux qui méritent son affection jusqu'à inclure le genre humain tout entier, ainsi que la nature tout entière, dans toute sa beauté.
Albert Einstein
