Subramaniya Bharathiyar
“காக்கைச் சிறகினிலே நந்த லாலா!-நின்தன்
கரியநிறந் தோன்று தையே நந்த லாலா!
பார்க்கும் மரங்க ளெல்லாம் நந்த லாலா!-நின்தன்
பச்சை நிறந் தோன்று தையே நந்த லாலா!
கேட்கு மொலியி லெல்லாம் நந்த லாலா!-நின்தன்
கீத மிசக்குதடா நந்த லாலா!
தீக்குள் விரலை வைத்தால் நந்த லாலா!-நின்னைத்
தீண்டு மின்பந் தோன்று தடா நந்த லாலா!”
Subramaniya Bharathiyar, பாரதியார் கவிதைகள் [Bharathiyar Kavidhaigal]

Gopi Krishna
“One who sees inaction in action and action in inaction- he is a wise man.”
Gopi Krishna

“It is I who remain seated in the heart of all creatures as the inner controller of all; and it is I who am the source of memory, knowledge and the ratiocinativefaculty. Again, I am the only object worth knowing through the Vedas; I alone am the origin of Vedānta and the knower of the Vedas too. — Krishna; Chapter 15, verse 15”
Anonymous, The Bhagavad Gita

Shunya
“Arjuna quotes old scriptures to support his conclusions and his “I’. Krishna had to say Geeta to dissolve his “I” so that he could just be an instrument. Now people quote Geeta to support their conclusions and their “I”.”
Shunya

Nihar Satpathy
“A true leader always leads by example, by demonstrating to others how the work is done. Sri Krishna, being a great spiritual leader of his time, also chose to perform certain worldly activities. Why? He explains, “If ever I cease to be vigilantly engaged in action, then people would follow my footsteps in every way and no one would perform action.”28 The life of Krishna is marked by ordinariness. He did the earthly job of cow herding, and also indulged in romancing, dancing and playing the flute. He demonstrated a life for others to emulate. He led a balanced life with his strengths as well as frailties. His life was, therefore, not extraordinary. He was not an epitome of perfection. He showed others how to lead a normal, worldly life by himself performing all the actions and yet drifting away from it by reaching for higher ideals.”
Nihar Satpathy, The Puzzles of Life

Laurence Galian
“Theosophists refer to the Knowledge and Conversation of the Holy Guardian Angel as the Silent Watcher (the reader might here recall the author's suggestion to make self-observation or self-watching a major magickal goal). Another term for It is the Great Master. The Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn call It the Genius. Gnostics say the Logos. Zoroaster talks about united all these symbols into the form of a Lion (see Austin Osman Spare's work). Anna Kingsford calls It Adonai (Clothed with the Sun). Buddhists call It Adi-Buddha. The Bhagavad-gītā calls It Vishnu (Krishna is an Avatar of Vishnu). The Yi King calls him The Great Person. The Kabbalah calls It Jechidah.”
Laurence Galian, 666: Connection with Crowley

Shunya
“Krishna’s maternal uncle Kansa is a symbol of society that starts conditioning your mind as soon as you take birth. You have been born and brought up in the prison of society. Krishna’s parents were imprisoned but they made sure that Krishna was brought up in freedom where he could discover His real self.”
Shunya

Nihar Satpathy
“Why does Sri Krishna say in the Gita that whenever the evil forces raise their head he appears on earth to support the righteous ones? Why does he rather not bring a final end to the perpetual fight between good and evil, instead? Why should evil rise again and again? Mankind is tired of perpetually facing the onslaught of evil. Why does it not get crushed once and for all? Why does God not make it happen? This question often puzzles us.”
Nihar Satpathy, The Puzzles of Life

Karl Wiggins
“We warily sipped ‘fresh’ buffalo milk in a Krishna temple. We travelled into the Himalayas until, at a height of two kilometres above sea level where we found ourselves surrounded by men as hard and tough as the mountains that bred them. We negotiated a price of 100 rupees for one of these men to carry our two heaviest bags the 15-minute walk to the hotel with nothing more than rope and a forehead strap. I paid him 300 rupees and his face lit up! We watched the morning mist clear to reveal views of the green Doon Valley and the distant white-capped Himalayan peaks. We rode an elephant up to the Amber Fort of Jaipur, and the next day we painted, washed and fed unpeeled bananas to another elephant, marvelling at her gentle nature as we placed the bananas on her huge bubble-gum coloured tongue.”
Karl Wiggins, Wrong Planet - Searching for your Tribe

“Therefore, do you perform your allotted duty;
for action is superior to inaction. Desisting from
action, you cannot even maintain your body. (Chapter-III, Shloka-8)”
Gita Press, Gita-Padachchheda-Anvaya

“He who has given up all desires, and moves free from attachment, egoism and thirst for enjoyment attains peace. (Chapter- II, Shloka- 71)”

Shunya
“Meera’s journey of love is complete. From a farmer expecting rain, she became a cloud that rains.

This magic happens when you stop expecting. She was at least expecting water from the sky (Krishna). You are expecting it from other pots.”
Shunya

“One's own duty, though devoid of merit, is preferable to the duty of another well performed. Even death in the performance of one's own duty brings blessedness; another's duty is fraught with fear. ( Chapter III, Shloka- 35)”

“Sri Krishna said: Arjuna, when one thoroughly casts off all cravings of the mind, and is satisfied in the Self through the joy of the Self, he is then called stable of mind. ( Chapter- II, Shloka- 55)”
Gita Press, Gita-Padachchheda-Anvaya

Laurence Galian
“The Initiate is the spiritual son of Krishna, or rather of Vishnu, of whom Krishna is the main avatar. The world INRI is a modification of development of the Word of Krishna, AUM, a formula of major antiquity.”
Laurence Galian, 666: Connection with Crowley

Abhijit Naskar
“Whether Jesus turning water into wine - whether Mecca moving around following the feet of Nanak - whether Krishna lifting a mountain on his finger - it's all fiction - which were written not to inform the public but to make them accept a certain figure as the authority of their lives.”
Abhijit Naskar, Good Scientist: When Science and Service Combine

Santosh    Kumar
“Imagine Krishna calling to meet you today, feel the presence of him, be swear.”

Debashis Chatterjee
“Reality is not our thoughts and feelings about things. Many of us, for example, think that the Sun rises in the East and sets in the West. In reality, the Sun neither rises nor sets. We on Earth just move closer to the Sun or farther away from it. Most of us do not see reality as it is but rather as we are. That is waht Krishna is telling Arjuna: To change your reality, change the mental filters through which you look - your own perspective. Just as white building when viewed through red glass looks red, similarly, reality as it is can be distorted by the colours of emotions in the mind.”
Debashis Chatterjee

Shunya
“When Bhagwadgeeta was spoken, it was pure and stinging truth. Even Arjuna couldn't digest it until Lord Krishna showed His universal-form. Generation after generation, human beings have diluted it so much that it doesn't sting anymore. It has become like water. Now everyone can give their own colour and flavour to it.”
Shunya

“Krishna used to steal Maakhan (butter) from people. Actually that maakhan is referred to goodness from people.
Krishna taught us to take goodness from everyone around us!”
Purvi Raniga
