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

Amit Ray
“Om is not just a sound or vibration. It is not just a symbol. It is the entire cosmos, whatever we can see, touch, hear and feel. Moreover, it is all that is within our perception and all that is beyond our perception. It is the core of our very existence. If you think of Om only as a sound, a technique or a symbol of the Divine, you will miss it altogether. Om is the mysterious cosmic energy that is the substratum of all the things and all the beings of the entire universe. It is an eternal song of the Divine. It is continuously resounding in silence on the background of everything that exists.”
Amit Ray, Om Chanting and Meditation

Amit Ray
“Your greatest awakening comes, when you are aware about your infinite nature.”
Amit Ray, Meditation: Insights and Inspirations

Swami Vivekananda
“Never say, "O Lord, I am a miserable sinner." Who will help you? You are the help of the universe. What in this universe can help you? What can prevail over you? You are the God of the universe; where can you seek for help? Never help came from anywhere but from yourself. In your ignorance, every prayer that you made and that was answered, you thought was answered by some Being, but you answered the prayer yourself unknowingly. The help came from yourself, and you fondly imagined that someone was sending help to you. There is no help for you outside of yourself; you are the creator of the universe. Like the silkworm, you have built a cocoon around yourself. Who will save you? Burst your own cocoon and come out as a beautiful butterfly, as the free soul. Then alone you will see Truth.”
Swami Vivekananda, The Complete Works of Swami Vivekananda: v. 3

Erwin Schrödinger
“No Self stands alone. Behind it stretches an immense chain of physical and - as a special class within the whole - mental events, to which it belongs as a reacting member and which it carries on. Through the condition at any moment of its somatic, especially its cerebral system, and through education, and tradition, by word, by writing, by monument, by manners, by a way of life, by a newly shaped environment... by so much that a thousand words would not exhaust it, by all that, I say, the Self is not so much linked with what happened to its ancestors, it is not so much the product, and merely the product, of all that, but rather, in the strictest sense of the word, the SAME THING as all that: the strict, direct continuation of it, just as the Self aged fifty is the continuation of the Self aged forty.”
Erwin Schrödinger, My View of the World

Amit Ray
“In our life there is one side which is finite and another side which is infinite. I want you to think about both the sides and design the best life and stand in their true values.”
Amit Ray, Walking the Path of Compassion

Muruganar
“In a heart that has drowned itself in the awareness of true jñāna, which is wholly love, bliss in its fullness will surge forth. Tormenting desires that arise through delusion do not exist there. That life, existing as the extremely pure svarūpa, is wholly peace.”
Muruganar, Guru Vachaka Kovai

Emil M. Cioran
Magnificat de Bach. Remué jusqu'aux larmes. Il est impossible que ce qui s'y exprime n'ait qu'une réalité subjective. L'« âme » doit être de la même essence que l'absolu. Et c'est le Vedânta qui a raison.”
Emil Cioran, Notebooks

Amit Ray

Amit Ray
“True virtue is knowing the self not by intellectual knowledge but by pure silence.”
Amit Ray, Peace Bliss Beauty and Truth: Living with Positivity

“When you become responsive to the solicitations of silence, you may be called to explore the invitation. This exploration is a kind of laboratory. You may sit and observe the coming and going of perceptions. You remain present to them but do not follow them. Following a thought is what maintains it. If you remain present without becoming an accomplice, agitation slows down through lack of fuel. In the absence of agitation you are taken by the resonance of stillness.”
Jean Klein, Who Am I?: The Sacred Quest

“Go deeply into the urge to be silent and not the mental interference of how, where and when. If you follow silence to its source you can be taken by it in a moment.”
Jean Klein, Who Am I?: The Sacred Quest

“We are one huge universe speaking and listening to itself.”
Francis Lucille, The Perfume of Silence

“You want me to talk about love, to give you a hold, something to feel, to admire or obtain. I will not give you a straw to grasp, and in this emptiness you will be taken by yourself. You are love so don’t try to be a lover.”
Jean Klein, Who Am I?: The Sacred Quest

“True happiness ensues indirectly. It always appears in a state of non-search.”
Ilie Cioara, The Wondrous Journey: Into the Depth of Our Being

“When we have reached the outposts of the mind, we are ready for the journey to the heart.”
Francis Lucille, The Perfume of Silence

“If you had been born in a civilization in which the rising sun was called 'my sun,' you would consider it your sun.”
Francis Lucille, The Perfume of Silence

“God sees God everywhere.”
Francis Lucille, The Perfume of Silence

“When we are happy, we don’t know that we are happy, because happiness requires childlike innocence. When a child is happy, he doesn’t know that he is happy. He doesn’t formulate it, he simply enjoys it.”
Francis Lucille, The Perfume of Silence

“Deep inquiry leads to contemplation, or prayer. Through dedicated contemplation we can attune to consciousness, the light which constitutes all phenomena. This light is our intrinsic nature. Our being is always shining. Our real nature is openness, listening, release, surrender without producing or will. Prayer or contemplation is welcoming free from projection and expectation. It is without demand and formulation. It invites the object to unfold in you and reveals your openness to you. Live with this opening, this vastness. Attune yourself to it. It is love. Ardent contemplation brings you to living meditation so ultimately they are one.”
Jean Klein, Who Am I?: The Sacred Quest

“Joy knows itself. As children we didn’t even know the word joy, we were joy.”
Francis Lucille, The Perfume of Silence

“Truth in itself is simple. We find it by cutting out the complications.”
Hazel Manuel, Kanyakumari

“It [realization of Oneness] means being constantly open to the possibility that we are like two flowers looking at each other from two different branches of the same tree, so that if we were to go deep enough inside to the trunk, we would realize that we are one. Just being open to this possibility will have a profound effect on your relationships and on your experience of the world.”
Francis Lucille, The Perfume of Silence
