Amit Ray
“You are never alone. You are eternally connected with everyone.”
Amit Ray, Meditation: Insights and Inspirations

“It is only through silent awareness that our physical and mental nature can change. This change is completely spontaneous. If we make an effort to change we do no more than shift our attention from one level, from one thing, to another. We remain in a vicious circle. This only transfers energy from one point to another. It still leaves us oscillating between suffering and pleasure, each leading inevitably back to the other. Only living stillness, stillness without someone trying to be still, is capable of undoing the conditioning our biologoical, emotional and psychological nature has undergone. There is no controller, no selector, no personality making choices. In choiceless living the situation is given the freedom to unfold. You do not grasp one aspect over another for there is nobody to grasp. When you understand something and live it without being stuck to the formulation, what you have understood dissolves in your openness. In this silence change takes place of its own accord, the problem is resolved and duality ends. You are left in your glory where no one has understood and nothing has been understood.”
Jean Klein, I Am

Amit Ray
“Brahman is the ultimate reality; it is simultaneously Saguna and Nirguna; divisions are due to ignorance. Mind and intellect can never catch hold of it; they have only one option and that is to merge with it.”
Amit Ray

C.G. Jung
“If I want to understand an individual human being, I must lay aside all scientific knowledge of the average man and discard all theories in order to adopt a completely new and unprejudiced attitude. I can only approach the task of understanding with a free and open mind, whereas knowledge of man, or insight into human character, presupposes all sorts of knowledge about mankind in general.”
C.G. Jung, The Essential Jung: Selected Writings

Banani Ray
“You do not need to go to any temple or church to worship God. The whole existence is God’s temple. Your own body is the temple of God. Your own heart is the shrine. You do not need to subscribe to any religion to experience God. The only religion you need to experience God is love, kindness and respect to all beings.”
Banani Ray, Glory of OM: A Journey to Self-Realization

Banani Ray
“You do not need any preacher or prophet to learn about God. The teaching is spread on the trees and the mountains, on the stars and the river, on the Sun and the moon. The ultimate teaching is written in your heart. You just need to wake up and see.”
Banani Ray, Glory of OM: A Journey to Self-Realization

Banani Ray
“Om was there in the existence, when no religion was formed or founded. It will be there in the existence, if all the religions are demolished.”
Banani Ray, Glory of OM: A Journey to Self-Realization

Ram Dass
“Relationships only work in a spiritual sense when you and I really see that we are one.”
Ram Dass, Polishing the Mirror: How to Live from Your Spiritual Heart

George Sheehan
“I am a lonely figure when I run the roads. People wonder how far I have come, how far I have to go. They see me alone and friendless on a journey that has no visible beginning or end. I appear isolated and vulnerable, a homeless creature. It is all they can do to keep from stopping the car and asking if they can take me wherever I'm going.
I know this because I feel it myself. When I see the runner I have much the same thoughts. No matter how often I run the roads myself, I am struck by how solitary my fellow runner appears. The sight of a runner at dusk or in inclement weather makes me glad to be safe and warm in my car and headed for home. And at those times, I wonder how I can go out there myself, how I can leave the comfort and warmth and that feeling of intimacy and belonging, to do this distracted thing.
But when finally I am there, I realise it is not comfort and warmth I am leaving, not intimacy and belonging I am giving up, but the loneliness that pursues me this day and every day. I know that the real loneliness, the real isolation, the real vulnerability, begins long before I put on my running shoes.”
George Sheehan

“Mind makes a man of God.”
Emmanuel Diogu

Paul Brunton
“The philosophic outlook rises above all sectarian controversy. It finds its own position not only by appreciating and synthesizing what is solidly based in the rival sects but also by capping them all with the keystone of nonduality.”
Paul Brunton, The Notebooks of Paul Brunton

Banani Ray
“Om is the presence which steals away. It steals away the ordinary mundane existence of strife, struggle and duality; it steals away anxiety, aggression, fear, grief and sorrow; it steals away the debris of anger, hatred, confusion and ignorance, to fill us with the nectar of joy, immortality and life eternal.”
Banani Ray, Glory of OM: A Journey to Self-Realization

Rasheed Ogunlaru
“A free spirit is not bound by this, that, matter, materialism or opinion. They sing, dance and flow on the wind - for they are at one with it. They are nothing and everything - void and expanse. Even space and time does not confine or define them. For they are pure energy itself.”
Rasheed Ogunlaru

Banani Ray
“Om is the signature sound of this Universe. It is the soundless sound of existence.”
Banani Ray

“Every breath away from the awareness of the present moment is a step away from the Self.”

“...all that we do is governed by the law of opposites in which every so-called positive act is exactly and equally balanced by its opposite.;”

“Maybe that is the purest and most radical kind of religion – simple attention. Present-moment awareness. Instead of a belief system, awareness sees through all beliefs.”
Joan Tollifson

“Some of the verse in "AshthavakraGIta" are so powerful that will take you to the far beyond cosmos and you will feel oneness with everything in the universe and all cosmos will be projected inside you. The day you know that all the things are the object is perceivable by the subject(knower) that is you, and you are not the body not the mind but the pure consciousness that illuminates the entire world.”
Pawan Parashar

Roshan Sharma
“If you can remain aware of your awareness, that is the present state of mind.”
Roshan Sharma

“Meditation brings Nirvana, and Nirvana brings Buddhahood.”
Abhijit Naskar, Rowdy Buddha: The First Sapiens

Sharon Salzberg
“If we are nothing, there is nothing at all to serve as a barrier to our boundless expression of love. Being nothing in this way, we are also, inevitably, everything. 'Everything' does not mean self-aggrandizement, but a decisive recognition of interconnection; we are not separate. Both the clear, open space of 'nothing' and the interconnected mess of 'everything' awakens us to our true nature.”
Sharon Salzberg, Lovingkindness: The Revolutionary Art of Happiness

George Sheehan
“The runner is coming to know, or will know if he runs enough...that the universe is the smallest divisible unit.”
George Sheehan

Banani Ray
“Om is the creative vibration, the seed vibration. The whole existence is hidden within it, just as a giant tree is hidden within a seed.”
Banani Ray

“The room was filled with
Hundreds of devotees
When Chow Ling asked:
Why are you worshipping the teapot
Instead of drinking the tea?”
Wu Hsin, The Lost Writings of Wu Hsin

Rasheed Ogunlaru
“Those with inner peace do not battle themselves. Nor do they wage war with others”
Rasheed Ogunlaru

“The Earth and sky fuse at the horizon, and each becomes the other, till there is no other.”
