The Vedas deal with rituals and worship, which imply a dualism between the worshipper and the object worshipped. Pure and selfless love towards all living beings, considering everyone as embodiments of the Divine, with no expectation of reward, is true Love.
One need not search for spiritual power, going around the world and spending a lot of money. God is the Antharyaami (Indweller), and so, when He is sought in the outer world He cannot be caught.
Man expects the New Year to confer on him and the world at large peace, happiness and prosperity. Your primary concern must be to understand whether you are real or unreal or what in you is real and what is unreal.
Though you do not see the roots or know how deep inside the earth they are, you pour water round the trunk, so that it may reach them. Cultivate them, give them fullest freedom to gush forth and fertilize all fields of activity, that is the real purpose of education. One may study all the scriptures, perform all types of sacrifices, go on extensive pilgrimages, but it is not easy to control the senses and the mind, direct one's vision inward and maintain equanimity.
But, you cannot easily detach yourself from activity; the mind clings to something or the other.
Constantly think yourself as being eternal, unlimited, Consciousness-Bliss, and you will be free and happy. It is only when you have recognised the truth of your own being that you can recognise the world as illusory and your own self as the only reality. It is interpreted in different ways, but the real basis of the Adwaithik principle is Ekaatma Bhaava, the feeling that there is only one Atma pervading everywhere and none else.


Whatever be the vicissitudes one may face, whatever be the personal sorrows and privations one may undergo, true love will remain unaffected.
So long as a trace of body consciousness persists in you, the search for God must continue. So you must use your strength of body and mind, wealth and education with intelligence, in order to realize the power of the soul.
The reason lies in the false emphasis we have laid on things of the material world, ignoring matters of the spirit. In ancient times, the sages and seers maintained purity in thought, truth in words and righteousness in deeds. Spirituality aims at enabling a person to manifest in all its fullness the divine cosmic consciousness (Chaitanya) that is present both within and outside oneself.
Make it cling to God, let it perform all actions for God and leave the success or failure, the loss and the profit, the elation or the dejection, to God.
So long as you trap yourself in body consciousness you are like a lion moping about in a musty cave.
Recognize that similarly there is God as the very basis of Creation; pray to Him, and He will shower fruit. This is tragic; it is like the man who died of thirst though he was standing knee-deep in the running stream. It means getting rid of one’s animal nature and developing the divine tendencies within one. Do not be under the delusion that God is residing somewhere and that you have to search for Him; God is within you.
Everyday, when you take food, you are offering eatables to the Fire that God has put in you to digest food.


They are bound by the qualities they have developed and they are still in need of the Form so that they may conceive of Reality. It means breaking down the barriers between God and Nature and establishing their essential oneness. In one business venture, you may incur a loss while in another you may make a profit; treat them both alike. In the same manner, the Divine is immanent in the entire cosmos in a subtle form as Chaitanya (Consciousness).
One who aspires for the welfare of the world should see to it that his thoughts and actions are in accordance with his aspirations.
I am all that is, was and will be.' Pettiness, ego, time and space - all will flee from your heart and you will realize your own Divinity. Though you find myriad bulbs glowing, the current that is passing through them is the same.
Pray to the Parabrahma Principle (transcendental principle) or God within you to reveal Itself. Only one who has such true love can be described as human, for, divine love is the basic quality of a true human being.
While the Divine is in such close proximity to him, man in his ignorance goes about seeking God outside himself. Forgetting the supreme power of the Spirit, people rely on the powers of the body, the mind and the intellect.
