The body is mortal, but he who dwells in the body is said to be immortal and immeasurable – Bhagavad Gita


When the senses contact sense objects, we experience cold or heat, pleasure or pain. These are fleeting; they come and go. Bear them patiently.

The person who is unaffected by the sense objects, who is the same in pleasure and pain, is truly wise and fit for immortality. Assert your strength to realize this.

The impermanent has not reality; reality lies in the eternal. Those who have seen the boundary between these two have attained the end of all knowledge.

Realize that which pervades the universe and is indestructible; no power can affect this unchanging, imperishable Reality.

The body is mortal, but he who dwells in the body is said to be immortal and immeasurable.
Bhagavad Gita

Sant Rajinder Singh Ji Maharaj Quote

It is not easy to find God. It is a process of withdrawing our attention from the world outside to focus within. There are so many worldly attractions to draw our attention outward that it takes tremendous strength to resist such temptations.

Thomas Paine Quote

Reputation is what men and women think of us; character is what God and angels know of us. - Thomas Paine

Swami Vivekananda Quote

Of all the scriptures in the world, it is the Vedas alone that declare that even the study of the Vedas is secondary. The real study is "that by which we realize the Unchangeable." And that is neither reading, nor believing, nor reasoning, but superconscious perception, or samadhi.
-- Swami Vivekananda (1863-1902)

Sant Rajinder Singh Ji Maharaj Quote - Energy of Anger

The energy of anger that we send out into the universe is going to boomerang back to us at some point in time. We wonder in life why we may be the victims of someone else's anger, but do not realize the possibility that it is only coming back to us from something we generated.
Sant Rajinder Singh Ji Maharaj

SHB Quote March 07, 2013

''We are taught to not have attachment for one another, but don't confuse attachment with spiritual love. Spiritual love is something that is unconditional and needs no words, physical touch or thoughts to express as the divine connection between us exists - it is omnipresent'' - SimpleHinduBhai
