Quotes on Gratitude

“When God fulfils your desire, you are all gratitude. When God does not fulfil your desire, if you can become all gratitude to Him, then God Himself is bound to come to you, not only to replace and fulfil your desire, but to give you what He has and what He is: Infinitude.”

1

“If gratitude is sincere, genuine, soulful and pure, then it lasts; it has a long life. But if it is not sincere, then from the start it has no life. This moment we offer gratitude because we feel, or we try to make ourselves feel, that some higher forces have acted in and through us. But in five minutes we somehow manage to forget that those higher forces played the most significant role in and through us.”

2

“But if you want to make yourself happy, sincerely happy, if you want to grow into happiness, then right from this moment only offer gratitude, gratitude, gratitude to the Supreme, for you are on the path and you are doing the right thing by offering gratitude.”

3

“Gratitude is the safest way for us to reach the supreme destination. The moment we offer our gratitude to the Supreme, many, many undivine forces leave us. Our complaints against the path, against other human beings, even against the Supreme Himself disappear.”

2

“Gratitude means to become a flower in every part of your being: body, vital, mind and heart. Everything in your being will exist only as a flower. There are 86,000 subtle nerves inside you, but there will not remain anything else except a flower. You as an individual will become only a flower to be placed at the Feet of the Supreme. This flower is completely open; all the petals are blossomed. This is gratitude.”

5

“We must cry to God for the power of gratitude. In the spiritual life, a moment of sincere gratitude to the Supreme is equal to an hour of most intense aspiration, concentration, meditation and contemplation. Gratitude has the mightiest power to win God, but we have to get it before we can give it.”

6

“The things that most deserve our gratitude we just take for granted. Without air we cannot live for more than a minute or two. Every day we are breathing in and breathing out, but do we ever feel grateful to the air?”

Quotes on compassion

compassions-triumphs

“Unless and until you have developed
A heart inundated with compassion,
Do not sit on the seat of judgement.“

1

“Compassion
Is far beyond the domain
Of all laws.

2

Frustration mounts
When Compassion fades.

3

Compassion
Sooner or later
Triumphs.

4

“Concern, compassion, love: these are three rungs in one ladder. Compassion in the ordinary sense of the term, when it is given from one individual to another, always has a sense of separativity and inferiority. He who has compassion is superior; he who receives compassion is inferior. He who has the capacity uses the compassion-power, and he who does not have the capacity receives the compassion-power from the superior. But in the spiritual life, compassion is nothing other than oneness itself. Compassion does not mean a sense of pity. Compassion is the expansion of what one eternally is.”

5

“Compassion is at once the seed and fruit of self-education. And it is from self-education that we can offer our wisdom-light to mankind. Wisdom-light is a self-giving flame that slowly, steadily and unerringly grows into a God-becoming sun.

6

“In the ordinary, unaspiring life, compassion is a very tricky word. We say ‘compassion’ when we mean to say ‘attachment’. In the human world there is no compassion; it is all unconscious attachment. When people who live in the physical world say that they are showing compassion to someone because he is weak and he needs guidance, this is not true. It is only attachment, and from this attachment they expect an aggrandisement of their own ego.”

7

Aspirant! If evil has an access to the mid-ocean and to the sky, God’s all-pervading Compassion has a freer and more embracing access to these places.

Impelled by His strongest Compassion, God takes the feeblest man into His Omnipotence.

Quotes about service

“Service
Is the secret
Of true happiness.”

Sri Chinmoy, Seventy-Seven Thousand Service-Trees, part 33, Agni Press, 2003

“There is no difference between the highest form of selfless service and the highest form of meditation. If you can soulfully, spontaneously and unconditionally do either meditation or selfless service, you will gain the same.”

Sri Chinmoy, Service-heroes, Agni Press, 1978

“But I wish to say that selfless service can be on all the planes. If you are washing dishes or guarding me, then you are executing the Will of the Supreme on the physical plane. And if you offer your good will or if you have a very high, sublime meditation, then on the inner plane you are executing the Will of the Supreme. Undoubtedly, that is also selfless service. Anything that you do to become soulfully one, devotedly one, unreservedly one, unconditionally one with the Will of the Supreme is selfless service.”

Sri Chinmoy, Service-heroes, Agni Press, 1978

“The essence of service
Is
Life-concern.”

Sri Chinmoy, Seventy-Seven Thousand Service-Trees, part 23, Agni Press, 2001

“What is selfless service?
Some call it humility-service,
Others call it humiliation-service,
But I shall always call it
Illumination-service.”

Sri Chinmoy, Twenty-Seven Thousand Aspiration-Plants, part 18, Agni Press, 1983

“When you have offered
Your service to God,
How is it
That you have sent a bill
For your service?”

Sri Chinmoy, Twenty-Seven Thousand Aspiration-Plants, part 58, Agni Press, 1984

“Your service will be amply rewarded.
Just do it soulfully
And selflessly.”

Sri Chinmoy, Twenty-Seven Thousand Aspiration-Plants, part 83, Agni Press, 1984

“My service is perfect
When I do not expect from God
Anything in return.”

Sri Chinmoy, Seventy-Seven Thousand Service-Trees, part 19, Agni Press, 2000

“Your outer service to mankind
Will give your inner faith
A splendid victory.”

Sri Chinmoy, Ten Thousand Flower-Flames, part 86, Agni Press, 1983

“Each act of selfless service
Is
Its own reward.”

Sri Chinmoy, Seventy-Seven Thousand Service-Trees, part 18, Agni Press, 2000

love-never-cared-judge

“Do not judge,
But love and be loved,
If you want to be really happy.“

– Sri Chinmoy 1

“Love is something
That never cared to learn
How to judge anybody.“

– Sri Chinmoy 2

“I do not want to see
 The world
With my mind’s judgement.“

– Sri Chinmoy 3

Your hasty judgements
Can entirely ruin your life.“

Beforehand —
Wait for the finals.“

– Sri Chinmoy 5

“God is and shall forever remain
 Far, far beyond
Our human judgement.“

– Sri Chinmoy 6

– Sri Chinmoy 7

“The judgement-seat
Rarely embodies
Happiness-smile.“

– Sri Chinmoy 8

“O my mind,
What makes you think
That you can always sit
In the judgement seat?“

– Sri Chinmoy 9

“Unless and until you have developed
A heart inundated with compassion,
Do not sit on the seat of judgement.“

– Sri Chinmoy 10


I do not judge anybody, not because I am afraid of being judged by others, but because my judgement is bound to be wanting in inner satisfaction and pure joy.“

– Sri Chinmoy 11

“Judgement does not have
 The capacity
To give us true happiness,
But illumination does have
 The capacity.“

– Sri Chinmoy 12

“If I cannot have compassion-power,
Let me have forgiveness-power.
If I cannot have forgiveness-power,
Let me have tolerance-power.
If I cannot have tolerance-power,
Let me at least delay
My judgement-power.“

– Sri Chinmoy 13

“When we judge others,
We shall not only be judged,
 But also
Our consciousness
Unmistakably descends.“

– Sri Chinmoy 14

“Do not judge yourself.
Truth to tell,
You know next to nothing
 About yourself.“

– Sri Chinmoy 15

“It is unfair
To judge your life
Only by your today’s
Deplorable performance.“

– Sri Chinmoy 16


“But the mind that you are using right now is the physical, earth-bound mind. Its capacity is very limited; but in spite of that it constantly judges you and others. The mind is always eager to suspect others. It feels that suspicion is the greatest wisdom. It feels that its doubting capacity is the greatest achievement. If the mind suspects or doubts, then it feels that it is doing something very great and significant. Naturally, very often you see that its judgements are totally wrong, because the mind’s judgements are based on its preconceived ideas and prejudices. But the heart is all love, all oneness, all spontaneity.”“

– Sri Chinmoy 17

Quotes about wisdom

“Wisdom. Wisdom is our liberal self-giving and not our selfish self-seeking. Wisdom is the beauty of our inner flame. Our inner flame is our upward aspiration-flight. Our aspiration-flight is our immortal Reality’s height. The man of wisdom serves God in man. The man of wisdom loves man in God. By serving God in man, the man of wisdom gets boundless Peace, Light and Bliss. By loving man in God, the man of wisdom expands his vision. He feels himself an extension of the ever-increasing vision, inner and outer. Wisdom is at once experience and realisation. Experience tells the seeker what he can eventually become: a perfect instrument of God.”

– Sri Chinmoy 1

“Wisdom-light is life-loving. Wisdom-light is self-giving. Wisdom-light is God-becoming.”

– Sri Chinmoy 2

“Real wisdom comes from the heart. And what is that wisdom? To love and serve these poor people who are suffering. The knowledge that comes from the mind always has a superior feeling: “I am so clever; I am so great.” But the heart’s wisdom acts like a mother. When the mother deals with the child, she never thinks of herself as superior. She comes down to the level of the child so that she can deal with the child and the child can deal with her. Suppose someone has read 10,000 books and you have read only one book. Who cares for 10,000 books? The only book we care for is the book that says to love and be loved — and that book is written on the tablet of the heart.”

– Sri Chinmoy 3

“What is Wisdom-Light? Wisdom-Light is something that eternally glows inside our heart and around our life eternal. Wisdom-Light tells us that there are only two mighty powers on earth. These powers are temptation-power and liberation-power. When we surrender to temptation-power, we come to realise that our body is unawakened, our vital is undisciplined, our mind is unillumined and our heart is unfulfilled. When we aspire for liberation-power, we come to realise that our soul is a fulfilled and, at the same time, a constantly fulfilling reality; that our soul is an illumined and, at the same time, an ever-illumining reality.”

– Sri Chinmoy 4

“Wisdom is something that comes to the fore from within, from the Light of the soul. When we discover wisdom, we feel that we are in conscious oneness with the Almighty Father.”

– Sri Chinmoy 5

“There are many spiritual Masters who did not care for study. But all the scholars of the Western world should go and touch the feet of these illiterate men of infinite Wisdom. The higher, the deeper we go, the more convincing, the more illumining, the more worthwhile the wisdom we get.”

– Sri Chinmoy 6

Wisdom can reach
Heaven’s Feet and earth’s heart
All at once.

– Sri Chinmoy 7

“A worldwide shortage of wisdom is responsible for the absence of universal peace, universal oneness and universal fulness.”

– Sri Chinmoy 8

“The mind is full of turmoil, tension and obscurity on the surface, but when we go deep inside the mind we find the illumined mind, the intuitive mind, the higher mind and so on. These minds are constantly expanding, enlarging and trying to help the gross physical body to see the Truth, live the Truth and become the Truth.”

Sri Chinmoy, 2

“According to our understanding, the person who has a brilliant mind, the mental giant, is a superior being. But we have to know and accept the limitations of the mind. Unless we become aware of its deficiencies, we will not try to correct them.”

Sri Chinmoy, 2

“You have to feel during your intense meditation that you have nothing and are nothing but the heart. Feel that you do not have a body, you do not have a mind, but you have and you are only the heart.”

– Sri Chinmoy 4

“The earthbound mind is full of thoughts and restlessness on the surface, but in the depths of the mind there are no thoughts, it is all calm and quiet. So it is there that you have to go. When you are in that mind, the vacant, tranquil, calm mind, you can accomplish very many things at one time, because that mind is not the human mind; it is the divine mind.”

– Sri Chinmoy 5

“If the mind can be illumined by the heart, then the mind and the heart will be able to go together. Right now, inside everybody there is a constant fight going on between the two.”

– Sri Chinmoy 6

“If the intellectual mind, the negative mind, is not illumined by the heart, dryness will reign supreme. The intellectual mind loves dryness. In the spiritual life, we never want dryness!”

– Sri Chinmoy 6

“How can you discipline your mind during meditation? You can discipline the mind only by forgetting the existence of the mind and feeling that you do not have a mind.”

– Sri Chinmoy 8

 

 

” Unfortunately, the mind cherishes three destructive forces. Even when the human mind sees that these forces are completely destroying it, still it does not want to get rid of them. These three destructive forces are doubt, suspicion and cynicism.”

– Sri Chinmoy 9

O my mind,
You talk too much!
Do follow my heart
That lives in silence.

– Sri Chinmoy 10

“When my mind falls silent,
Everything becomes perfect
In my life.”

– Sri Chinmoy 11

“The mind questions,
The mind answers,
But the mind is never satisfied
With the answers.”

– Sri Chinmoy 12

“The mind’s negativity
Is a most destructive reality
In our life.”

– Sri Chinmoy 13

The mind
Dearly loves
Separation.

The heart
Deeply loves
Oneness.

– Sri Chinmoy 14
