– Sri Chinmoy. 10

– Sri Chinmoy. 15

“Real freedom is the inseparable oneness with the universe. There you are growing together. You are achieving something and you are seeing that the entire world is achieving it at the same time.”

– Sri Chinmoy. 17

“When I give someone material wealth, money-power or something else, I have to feel that it is my very necessity to increase my own oneness-feeling for the length and breadth of the world. I have to feel that it is not I who am helping someone. It is I, on the contrary, who am being helped.”

– Sri Chinmoy. 18

“The highest philosophy
Is the philosophy
Of oneness.”

– Sri Chinmoy. 19

Is beyond expression.”

– Sri Chinmoy. 20

Then give up fighting
For negativity
And learn the beautiful art
Of self-encouragement.”

– Sri Chinmoy, 1

Not by giving, not by talking,
But by being.”

“You want to end your unhappiness.
I tell you, there is one way
To end your unhappiness,
And that is to end your constant feeling
Of unpleasant unworthiness.”

– Sri Chinmoy 3

“When the heart is happy it embraces the whole world. When the mind is happy it accepts the world as its very own. When the vital is happy it offers its very existence to the world. And when the body is happy it serves the world the way the world wants to be served.”

Sri Chinmoy, 4

Your outer life will not succeed
And your inner life will not proceed.”

It comes from inner joy and inner satisfaction.”

Sri Chinmoy, 10

Is not mutual,

Are governed
By superficial happiness.”

I am happy because I do not complain.”

You will get what you like most. You will be what you like best.”

Quotes about God

“God is with form; He is without form. He is with attributes; He is without attributes. If an individual wants to see God as an infinite expanse of Light and Delight, God will come to that person as an infinite expanse of Light and Delight. But if he wants to see God as a most brilliant, most luminous being, then God will come to him like that.”

Sri Chinmoy, 1

“God is infinite Consciousness, infinite Bliss, yet he can also assume a finite form. He is infinite, He is finite; and at the same time He transcends both the infinite and the finite. He is life, He is death; yet again He is beyond both life and death.”

Sri Chinmoy, 2

“God wants to express Himself in each individual in a unique way. When we become consciously and fully one with God, we not only fulfil Him but we also fulfil ourselves.”

Sri Chinmoy, 3

Quotes on art

“Divine art cannot exist without spiritual freedom, but ordinary art can and does exist without spiritual freedom. Ordinary art is the art that plays only with colour and form, totally ignoring the supreme importance of the spirit and essence.”

Sri Chinmoy, 1

“Art is not something to be understood; it is something to be felt.”

Sri Chinmoy 2

“When I look at a painting, I try to feel its inner existence, which we call the soul. If a painting gives me an immediate inner thrill or a feeling of joy, if it touches my aspiring heart and makes me want to become a better person, then I feel that painting is meaningful for me.”

Sri Chinmoy, 2

“For me, birds have a very special significance on a spiritual level. They fly in the sky, and the sky is all freedom. So when the birds fly in the sky, they remind me of the soul’s infinite freedom. The soul has come from Heaven. When we think of birds, we are also reminded of our Source, and this gives us enormous joy.”

 Sri Chinmoy, 4

“When you create a piece of art, immediately it adds to reality in terms of inspiration, in terms of capacity, in terms of beauty. If the artist is sincere and devoted, then each time he creates he is offering new life, ever-continuous and ever-transcending life, and entering into Immortality.”

 Sri Chinmoy, 5

“If you enjoy art with your heart’s love, then automatically you are getting inspiration from it. But if you enjoy it with your mind, then you are stuck there. You are only measuring the art, judging it. At that time, even if you enjoy it, still the art does not come as an inspiration. But if you enjoy it with your heart, you are identifying yourself with the work.”

 Sri Chinmoy, 6

“We can perform all our responsibilities as artists if we see the life-inspiring and life-fulfilling supreme Artist inside all our responsibilities. If we take all our responsibilities as opportunities and not as heavy burdens, then whatever we offer to the world is undoubtedly a devoted and glorious work of art.”

 Sri Chinmoy, 7

“Art
Gives joy
To my searching eye.”

– Sri Chinmoy, 8

“Imitation
Is not art.
Newness in fulness
Is art.”

– Sri Chinmoy, 9

“My Art is no art
Without my heart’s purity.”

– Sri Chinmoy, 10

Quotes on tolerance

inner-compassion-tolerance-world-har

“It is in our liberal understanding of all religious faiths that we can hope to achieve tolerance. Tolerance helps us to a large degree to put an end to the age-old prejudices born of ignorance.”

– Sri Chinmoy, Source

“Tolerance is not conscious submission to a superior power. Real tolerance is compassion in disguise.”

– Sri Chinmoy, Source

Tolerance
Is a secret and sacred way
To enrich our human life.

– Sri Chinmoy, Source

I shall tolerate the world,
I shall.
Only by tolerating the world
Shall I be able to help
My mind to ascend
And
My heart to transcend.

Sri Chinmoy, Source

Humanity’s tolerance-need
Is urgent.

Sri Chinmoy, Source

Tolerance means
Eventual victory.

Sri Chinmoy, Source

Tolerance always
Brings forth
A bumper crop.

Sri Chinmoy, Source

“Divine tolerance is based on oneness. In the case of divine tolerance, when somebody does something wrong to me, I do not actually forgive that person. What happens is that my inner divinity becomes totally one with the person who has made a mistake and is creating a disturbance in my life. If my soul’s oneness with the other person comes to the fore, then where is forgiveness? So divine tolerance is deeper even than forgiveness. It is all oneness. It is nothing but the conscious feeling or awareness of our oneness with others. I do not tolerate you because I feel that I am superior or because I feel that I have capacity while you have none. With a spiritual person, it is not ego that comes to the fore when he tolerates someone. It is his identification with the other person’s limitations.”

– Sri Chinmoy, Source

Quotes about music

“To me, music is not something that we see. Music is not even something that we feel. Music is something that we must grow into.”

– Sri Chinmoy 1

“In the spiritual world, next to meditation is music, the breath of music. Meditation is silence, energising and fulfilling. Silence is the eloquent expression of the inexpressible.”

– Sri Chinmoy 2

“The excruciating pangs and universal pathos of music is the beauty of the earth-heart.

The transcendental music of liberating Light and immortalising Delight is the beauty of the Heaven-Soul.”

Sri Chinmoy, 3

“Music is psychic enlightenment. Music is the supreme fulfilment of the aspiring human soul.”

Sri Chinmoy,  4

“While playing, the seeker-musician in silence converses and communes with the Musician Supreme, his Inner Pilot. He learns from Him the music of the soundless sound. The music of the soundless sound is Eternity’s sheltering tree with Infinity’s inspiring flowers and Immortality’s nourishing fruits. What the music of the soundless sound has, is the involution of God the man, and what it is, is the slow, steady and unerring evolution of man the God.”

Sri Chinmoy, 4

“Music and religion are like the obverse and reverse of the same reality-coin. Music in its purest sense is religion and religion in its purest sense is music. Only music and religion can transform and perfect humanity. This music-religion, this code of life, this universal language of the soul, can only be offered; it cannot be purchased or sold. Music and religion are for the seekers, for the music-lovers, for the truth-servers. Money-power or earthly name and fame cannot lord it over these two immortal realities, these two earthly and heavenly treasures.”

Sri Chinmoy, 4

“Music can do much for the Supreme. It is a way to reach humanity and bring spirituality to humanity.”

– Sri Chinmoy, 4

“Music helps the spiritual seeker to go deep within to get the utmost satisfaction from life, from truth, from reality. The spiritual life, in turn, helps music to offer its capacity and its strength, which is the soul’s light, to the world at large.”

– Sri Chinmoy, 8

“When we listen to soulful music, or when we ourselves play soulful music, immediately our inner existence climbs up high, higher, highest. It climbs up and enters into something beyond.”

– Sri Chinmoy, 9

“Music will play a most important role in bringing about world oneness, for music embodies the Universal Heart, the Oneness-Heart. Music transcends the barriers of nations, nationalities and religions.”

Sri Chinmoy, 10

“Music embodies universal Light and universal Truth, and music also embodies the oneness-reality which we see in universal Love, universal Light, universal Awareness and universal Wakefulness.”

Sri Chinmoy, 10

“Music has to play a most important role in bringing about world oneness, for music is the connecting link between the One and the many and between the many and the One.”

Sri Chinmoy, 10

“When we hear soulful music, or when we play a soulful piece of music, we feel a kind of inner thrill in our entire existence, from the soles of our feet to the crown of our head. A river is flowing through us, a river of consciousness, and this consciousness is all the time illumined.”

– Sri Chinmoy, 9

“If one can play soulful music or hear soulful music, the power of his own meditation increases. Music, soulful music, adds to our aspiration. Similarly, if a spiritual seeker wants to be a musician, even if he does not have a musical background, he will be able to be a good musician because prayer and meditation contain all capacities.”

– Sri Chinmoy, 9

“Soulful music is the music that wants to eventually transform our consciousness. It carries us into the Universal Consciousness and makes us feel that we are in tune with the highest, with the deepest, with the farthest.”

– Sri Chinmoy, 9

“If we really play soulful music, we will see that we are just an instrument, that somebody else is singing and playing in and through us, and that somebody is our Inner Pilot, the Supreme.”

– Sri Chinmoy, 9

“Music is the inner or universal language of God. I do not know French or German or Italian, but if music is played, immediately the heart of the music enters into my heart, or my heart enters into the music. At that time, we don’t need outer communication; the inner communion of the heart is enough. My heart is communing with the heart of the music and in our communion we become inseparably one.”

Sri Chinmoy, 17

To feel the music
Is infinitely more important
Than to hear the music.

– Sri Chinmoy, 18

The music of the heart
Begins
Where the words of the mind
Stop.

– Sri Chinmoy, 19

Music knows
How to soulfully become
The illumining fragrance
Of Nature.

– Sri Chinmoy, 20

Unmistakably
Is what I carefully
Or carelessly
Invite.”

– Sri Chinmoy, 1

“Life has no limits.
It is the mind that creates
Life’s so-called limits.”

– Sri Chinmoy, 2

“The aim of life is to become conscious of the Supreme Reality. The aim of life is to be the conscious expression of the Eternal Being.”

– Sri Chinmoy, 3

“Life is evolution. Evolution is the unfoldment from within. Each life is a world in itself. Indeed, each life is a microcosm. Whatever breathes in the vast universe also breathes in each individual life.”

– Sri Chinmoy, 3

“Do not think of
Life’s failures.
Think of
Life’s successes.”

Sri Chinmoy, 5

“Nobody
Can properly understand

Quotes on Courage

courage-to-love-only-way-to-be-happy

“Courage is absolutely necessary in the spiritual life. The very acceptance of the spiritual life demands enormous courage. It is only a divinely courageous soul, only a divinely inspired soul, that can swiftly reach the highest Goal.”

Sri Chinmoy, 1

“This courage is not the courage of a haughty, rough person who will strike others to assert his superiority; it is totally different. This courage is our constant awareness of what we are entering into, of what we are going to become, of what we are going to reveal.”

Sri Chinmoy, 1

“It takes great courage
To become sincere.
It takes greater courage
And greatest courage
To become holy.”

Sri Chinmoy, 3

“Our spiritual progress
Depends on
Our inner courage.”

Sri Chinmoy, 4

“To speak ill of the world
Needs courage,
But fortunately or unfortunately
Everybody has that courage.
To love the world
As one’s own,
Very own,
Needs courage.
Unfortunately, most of us are wanting
In that courage.
The courage of the heart,
The courage of the soul
We badly need,
And not the courage
Of the unruly,
Aggressive,
Impure,
Demanding vital.”

Sri Chinmoy, 5

Quotes on humility

only-humility-knows-how-to-appreciate

“Humility
Knows the art
Of pleasing
Every heart.”

Sri Chinmoy, 1

“When we become really humble, we offer more of our capacity, divinity and reality. Only by becoming humble can we become what we truly are. We become of greater use, of greater help to mankind.”

Sri Chinmoy, 2

“Humility is not a matter of touching the feet of somebody, no. It is something that has to be shared with the rest of the world. It is the God-life within us. The higher we go, the greater is our promise to the Supreme in mankind. The more light we receive by virtue of our humility, the more we have to offer to mankind.”

Sri Chinmoy, 2

“When you feel humble, you feel that your body, vital and mind are responding to your soul’s dictates.”

Sri Chinmoy, 4

“Don’t be a fool
And assume
That you already know
What you need to know.”
