Goswami Quotes By Goswami Kriyananda

Trust life, even if you cannot trust people. For human nature is unreliable, but life itself is ruled by immutable law. Right action leads always, in the end, to victory. — Goswami Kriyananda

Goswami Quotes By Amit Goswami

It can be made only when one recognizes the ground of being itself, when one recognizes directly that One is All. — Amit Goswami

Goswami Quotes By Goswami Kriyananda

Master said if you want to be happy no one in the world can take happiness from you; if you want to be unhappy, no one in the world can make you happy. So choose to be happy. — Goswami Kriyananda

Goswami Quotes By Goswami Kriyananda

The thing is that the ego cannot cure itself of its own malady of egoism; it's already infected by the disease itself. And that is why it is necessary to go to a guru who knows God and by absorbing his consciousness into yourself, you discover that you aren't this ego. You cross that abyss and you find that you are infinite. — Goswami Kriyananda

Goswami Quotes By Goswami Kriyananda

It's a mistake to think that God has conflict with anything. He's everything. So the more close you are to God, how can you be in conflict with anybody? Conflict comes from ego, and from thinking, "I'm right and you're wrong." If I can reach the point where I understand that what is right for me may be different than what is right for you, that would be a good step. But most people don't reach that point, and so they fight about it. — Goswami Kriyananda

Goswami Quotes By Goswami Kriyananda

As you begin this day, tell yourself, Today I am incarnated anew! I am released from the hypnosis of my old habits and mistakes! Everything that I have long dreamed of doing I will accomplish in this, my new life. — Goswami Kriyananda

Goswami Quotes By Ravi Ranjan Goswami

Many times dealings in crime and corruption are done with more honesty and trust. — Ravi Ranjan Goswami

Goswami Quotes By Goswami Kriyananda

I was always seeking truth from childhood. And I identified truth with many things, with science, with politics, with art, and I kept coming back to the thought that without God I can't get to what I'm looking for. — Goswami Kriyananda

Goswami Quotes By Goswami Kriyananda

It's the fact that your body and your personality are not God. God is you. But you can't say you are God just as the ocean is all the waves, but you can't say one wave is the ocean. And so you manifest God in a way that you don't understand. Man himself is the image of God, but he doesn't see that image in himself. And you need to meditate, and there will come your answer, not looking in the mirror. — Goswami Kriyananda

Goswami Quotes By Goswami Kriyananda

But surrender also means your back's to the wall and saying, "Okay, I give up." But rather it's a joyful self-offering. When you come to the point of realizing that "I never get it right. I always make a mess of things; I can't do anything right. Let him do it." And then you ask his power to do it through you and you find suddenly that it works that way. — Goswami Kriyananda

Goswami Quotes By Goswami Kriyananda

Happiness is like a plant: It must be watered daily with giving thoughts and actions. — Goswami Kriyananda

Any attempt to dismiss a phenomenon that is not understood merely by explaining it as hallucination becomes irrelevant when a coherent scientific theory can be applied. — Amit Goswami

Goswami Quotes By Amit Goswami

Consciousness is the ground of Being. — Amit Goswami

Goswami Quotes By Goswami Kriyananda

When I find that I am more conscious, it's because I'm in tune with a higher reality. When I'm less conscious, it's because I've cut off that entunement to some extent. Maybe through drinking, through anger, through whatever. And I realized then that God has to be an infinite consciousness, and that I had to be an expression of that consciousness. And that the goal of life then must be to become more and more in tune with that consciousness. And I decided to give my life to God. And around that time, to make a long story short, I found Autobiography of a Yogi. — Goswami Kriyananda

Goswami Quotes By Goswami Kriyananda

The secret of friendship is expressing kindness with your eyes and through the tone of your voice, not only with words. — Goswami Kriyananda

Goswami Quotes By Goswami Kriyananda

My master's visualizations were so powerful their condensation into matter was mere signature. Donald Walters, formerly Kriyananda, author of The Path about his guru Yogananda. — Goswami Kriyananda

Goswami Quotes By Goswami Kriyananda

But what is your true self is the God within you who became you, and when you realize that you are not yourself but you are he, then you discover that you and he are one, just as Jesus said. Jesus was a great master, and he had great teachings for the world, and when it says in the Bible, "All those who received him, to them gave the power to become the sons of God." — Goswami Kriyananda

Goswami Quotes By Paromita Goswami

A black hen also lays white egg. The quote is not a racial remark. It implies everyone has hidden talent and can make the most out of it with only self realization. — Paromita Goswami

Goswami Quotes By Goswami Kriyananda

Take whatever cause for outward happiness you might have and take it within yourself, so that, if the sun should go out, you will not be any less happy; if the birds stop singing you will not be any less happy. — Goswami Kriyananda

Goswami Quotes By Goswami Kriyananda

The real sign of His blessings is if you can have more and more happiness inside. Learn always to be happy; to be happy with the happiness of God. Even- minded and cheerful. This is the fastest route to divine bliss. — Goswami Kriyananda

Goswami Quotes By Ravi Ranjan Goswami

Never go for a shortcut to success and never feel lazy to go a longer way. — Ravi Ranjan Goswami

Goswami Quotes By Goswami Kriyananda

I had always been very rational, but I'd always used reason in such a way as to convince myself that reasoning alone would not solve anything, really. Reasoning is theoretical. Until you feel with your heart, you don't know if a thing is true. I found that book was absolutely authentic. I absolutely knew it was the truth. My whole heart accepted it. — Goswami Kriyananda

Goswami Quotes By Goswami Kriyananda

Become more and more centered in the Self. To live more and more in the thought that God is here in your consciousness. — Goswami Kriyananda

Goswami Quotes By Goswami Kriyananda

If you begin to identify yourself with that inner awareness, and then you realize you're not really doing anything. As long as there's the thought, "I'm trying to wake up," that thought of "I" is still there. — Goswami Kriyananda

Goswami Quotes By Goswami Kriyananda

Understand that there is no relationship between your inner happiness and your inner joy and the outer things that you experience and behold in the world, that it all begins with you, the world is a mirror to your own Self, when you can look at things and feel joy not in the things but in yourself. — Goswami Kriyananda

Goswami Quotes By Goswami Kriyananda

Be able to laugh at difficulties. — Goswami Kriyananda

Goswami Quotes By Goswami Kriyananda

Don't live to be unhappy, live to be happy. If you live to be happy you'll find the things that make you happy. And as you do that you find that sharing with others makes you much happier than taking from them. — Goswami Kriyananda

Goswami Quotes By Amit Goswami

Consciousness is not mind; it is the ground of all being, the ground of both matter and mind. Matter and mind are both possibilities of consciousness. — Amit Goswami

Goswami Quotes By Ravi Ranjan Goswami

Enjoy life despite its problems. — Ravi Ranjan Goswami

Goswami Quotes By Amit Goswami

Consciousness comes first; it is the ground of all being. Everything else, including matter, is a possibility of consciousness. And consciousness chooses out of these possibilities all the events we experience. — Amit Goswami

Goswami Quotes By Goswami Kriyananda

Intuition is the innate ability in everyone to perceive truth directly - not by reason, logic, or analysis, but by a simple knowing from within. That is the very meaning of the word "intuition": to know, or understand from within - from one's own self, and from the heart of whatever one is trying to understand. Intuition is the inner ability to see behind the outer forms of things to their inner essence. — Goswami Kriyananda

Goswami Quotes By Ravi Ranjan Goswami

Without speaking, one can win the trust of a person by one's conduct — Ravi Ranjan Goswami

Goswami Quotes By Amit Goswami

You can't create a new reality with the same personality. — Amit Goswami

Goswami Quotes By Amit Goswami

When we are aware of our inner-growth potential yet have no pretensions about ourselves, when we are vulnerable, then we can change. — Amit Goswami

Goswami Quotes By Ravi Ranjan Goswami

Robbers' Hill and its surrounding area were extremely safe for women.
In the last two decades, there had been no incident of molestation or rape in and around the village. People in the region both feared and respected Bhagatji.
There lived two eunuchs in the village. There was a fable in the village that years ago these eunuchs were men who had sexually assaulted a local woman. Bhagatji punished them. Since then they had been like this. — Ravi Ranjan Goswami

Goswami Quotes By Amit Goswami

We can truly see that consciousness is operating creatively even in biology, even in the evolution of species. — Amit Goswami

Goswami Quotes By Goswami Kriyananda

The truth is that we are a part of God. God could not have created anything except out of his own consciousness. We're all his dream, and our duty in life that God has assigned to us, that the universe has placed squarely in our laps, is to find out who we really are. "Gnothi seauton," as the Greeks used to say. "Know thyself." But to know thyself, if you trace it back, to the deeper and deeper levels, you discover that that self is not your body or your ego or your personality or your country or anything, that's just a sack of self-definitions that you carry around with you — Goswami Kriyananda

Goswami Quotes By Goswami Kriyananda

Joy is not dependent upon outward circumstances. Joy is something that we can have under all circumstances when we are sad or happy. Outward circumstances are always neutral. They seem to be happy or sad according to the happy or sad attitudes of the mind. — Goswami Kriyananda

Goswami Quotes By Goswami Kriyananda

Happiness is reverence for all life. — Goswami Kriyananda

Goswami Quotes By Goswami Kriyananda

A deliberate attitude that you have to hold in your mind as one of the basic rules of yoga is to remain even-minded and cheerful.. — Goswami Kriyananda

Goswami Quotes By Amit Goswami

Quantum physics is the physics of possibilities. And not just material possibilities, but also possibilities of meaning, of feeling, and of intuiting. You choose everything you experience from these possibilities, so quantum physics is a way of understanding your life as one long series of choices that are in themselves the ultimate acts of creativity. — Amit Goswami

Goswami Quotes By Ravi Ranjan Goswami

For many men it is very difficult to accept and understand Infertility. They think only women can be infertile. They do not understand or want to understand that there may be a deficiency in men. — Ravi Ranjan Goswami

Goswami Quotes By Sumanta Goswami

Saying 'Love you' never creates a story, its the beginning of trouble. — Sumanta Goswami

Goswami Quotes By Goswami Kriyananda

The churches had left me cold, but I thought there's got to be a God. I remember going out, this is in Charleston, South Carolina, and my desire then was to be a playwright, and I was studying theater, and I went out one night, late at night, and I asked, "What can God be if there is a God?" I wasn't sure there was a God, but if there is a God, what must he be? Well, he can't be a judge, who's up there just waiting for us to make a mistake so he can clap us into hell. There's got to be something more than that. — Goswami Kriyananda

Goswami Quotes By Ravi Ranjan Goswami

The train brings out some of the best and the worst memories of my life. I like to watch the train. It makes me sad but gives hope as well. It connects me to my family, which I abandoned many years ago. I fled away from my family and home by a train only. — Ravi Ranjan Goswami

Goswami Quotes By Amit Goswami

For many years quantum physics had been giving indications that there are levels of reality other than the material level. — Amit Goswami

Goswami Quotes By Goswami Kriyananda

Laughter is a medicine you've got to use to drive away blues. — Goswami Kriyananda

Goswami Quotes By Amit Goswami

If ordinary people really knew that consciousness and not matter is the link that connects us with each other and the world, then their views about war and peace, environmental pollution, social justice, religous values, and all other human endeavors would change radically. — Amit Goswami

Goswami Quotes By Goswami Kriyananda

The greatest thing that will please God is that you maintain an attitude of unshakable joy. — Goswami Kriyananda

Goswami Quotes By Amit Goswami

Quantum physics presents a new and exciting worldview that challenges old concepts, such as deterministic trajectories of motion and causal continuity. If initial conditions do not forever determine an object's motion, if instead, every time we observe, there is a new beginning, then the world is creative at the base level. — Amit Goswami

Goswami Quotes By Goswami Kriyananda

Happiness is a question of attitude, not a question of what's happening out there. — Goswami Kriyananda

Goswami Quotes By Goswami Kriyananda

The essence of Ananda is both personal and sociological. Personally for people who seek truth or identities of God, it helps to be with other people who share those ideals. Environment is stronger than willpower, and when you are with people who have high ideals, it helps you to grow in your ideals. — Goswami Kriyananda

Goswami Quotes By Goswami Kriyananda

Sociologically, I think it is the most important thing going on in the world today. Because you can't change people by force. Communism made a great mistake in trying to inflict its beliefs on everybody. People have to find their own understanding, and if you can offer them an example that will inspire, they will come naturally to it. Ananda tries to offer this inspiring example. — Goswami Kriyananda

Goswami Quotes By Goswami Kriyananda

See what is worth learning, and what is worth doing. Thus, you gain an understanding of what is vital, and what is not vital. You need to learn what is important and what is not important. You need to understand what will move you upwards and onwards, and what will hinder you from traveling the higher path. — Goswami Kriyananda

Goswami Quotes By Goswami Kriyananda

Happiness is NOW! It isn't tomorrow. It isn't yesterday. Happiness is like a morning glory: Yesterday's won't bloom again; tomorrow's hasn't opened yet. Only today's flower can be enjoyed today. Be happy this very moment, and you'll learn how to be happy always. — Goswami Kriyananda

Goswami Quotes By Goswami Kriyananda

Spirituality means seeking experience. Not just belief. — Goswami Kriyananda

Goswami Quotes By Amit Goswami

Start with yourself. Only if you change can the world change. We are just taking it a little bit further. Not only do you start with yourself, but always remember others. — Amit Goswami

Goswami Quotes By Amit Goswami

Evolution is fundamentally creative, and when we align ourselves with the evolutionary movements of consciousness, the universe itself puts wind in our sails. Quantum thinking goes beyond the thoughts we're aware of; it includes unconscious processing, which doesn't just expand our boundaries, but can also free us from the suffering that conscious processing (sometimes known as 'the monkey mind') creates. — Amit Goswami

Goswami Quotes By Goswami Kriyananda

I've've seen some people like this that no matter what happens they've got something cheerful to feel about it. It's not always easy, but if we do it as a deliberate sward of battle rather then thinking 'Well, I'm not really feeling that way and therefore I shouldn't say that I am'. No! Make yourself that way! — Goswami Kriyananda

Goswami Quotes By Goswami Kriyananda

Your enemy is still yourself. You don't have enemies. They may be self-styled. I have plenty of self-styled enemies. I don't wish them harm. — Goswami Kriyananda

Goswami Quotes By Amit Goswami

Objects obey quantum laws- they spread in possibility following the equation discovered by Erwin Schodinger- but the equation is not codified within the objects. Likewise, appropriate non-linear equations govern the dynamical response of bodies that have gone through the conditioning of quantum memory, although this memory is not recorded in them. Whereas classical memory is recorded in objects like a tape, quantum memory is truly the analog of what the ancients call Akashic memory, memory written in Akasha, Emptiness- nowhere. — Amit Goswami

Goswami Quotes By Satsvarupa Dasa Goswami

Guru is not on the way to Krishna, Guru is 'the way' to Krishna. — Satsvarupa Dasa Goswami

Goswami Quotes By Ravi Ranjan Goswami

We get success by hard work and failure by hard luck — Ravi Ranjan Goswami

Goswami Quotes By Goswami Kriyananda

The secret of success is doing things not merely because they are popular, but because you deeply believe in them. — Goswami Kriyananda

Goswami Quotes By Rupa Goswami

May the honey-sweet flute music that flows from Lord Mukunda's lotus mouth fill me with bliss. — Rupa Goswami

Goswami Quotes By Amit Goswami

The idea that consciousness is the ground of being is the basis of all spiritual traditions. — Amit Goswami

Goswami Quotes By Amit Goswami

It is not just do do do. It is not just be be be. It is do be do be do. — Amit Goswami

Goswami Quotes By Amit Goswami

Consciousness does matter. Matter is secondary. Consciousness is primary. Brain does not do consciousness, consciousness does the brain. — Amit Goswami

Goswami Quotes By Goswami Kriyananda

I know that everybody is seeking bliss. And they're all looking for it mostly in the wrong ways, and as a result of that, they err, but there's no reason to hate them; they just don't know any better. Jesus himself on the cross said, "Forgive them, for they know not what they do." And so people who hate you, that's their problem. It doesn't have to be your problem. I wish them well. — Goswami Kriyananda

Goswami Quotes By Goswami Kriyananda

Feel that you are happy without any cause for happiness. — Goswami Kriyananda

Goswami Quotes By Goswami Kriyananda

We've got to be long distance runners on the spiritual path. We want to run as fast as we can, but at the same time realize that if God isn't at the end of that 100 yards, we don't fall flat of exhaustion. We've got to have whatever rhythm it takes to be able to go on for incarnations until we find that state of perfection we've been seeking. — Goswami Kriyananda

Goswami Quotes By Goswami Kriyananda

Even-minded and cheerful. When things go bad, you'll find that the same kind of attitude comes to you naturally. — Goswami Kriyananda

Goswami Quotes By Goswami Kriyananda

Realize that to have friends one must first be a friend. Make friendship a priority in your life. — Goswami Kriyananda

Goswami Quotes By Goswami Kriyananda

Happiness is a smile of comfort to the sorrowful. — Goswami Kriyananda

Goswami Quotes By Goswami Kriyananda

It's not insincere to say you're happy if your determined to make it true and live in that consciousness. — Goswami Kriyananda

Goswami Quotes By Goswami Kriyananda

If you want to know me, listen to my music. — Goswami Kriyananda

Goswami Quotes By Goswami Kriyananda

That's what life is for, to find that joy in yourself. — Goswami Kriyananda

Goswami Quotes By Goswami Kriyananda

The "kingdom of heaven" to which he referred was the state of God-consciousness, not the beautiful astral heavens that most people visualize, where virtuous souls go after death. — Goswami Kriyananda

Goswami Quotes By Goswami Kriyananda

Until you've tasted it [anything], you can't really know it. — Goswami Kriyananda

Goswami Quotes By Amit Goswami

I had vainly been seeking a description of consciousness within science; instead, what I and others have to look for is a description of science within consciousness. We must develop a science compatible with consciousness, our primary experience. — Amit Goswami

Goswami Quotes By Goswami Kriyananda

You can accept it that it may be true what somebody else says, but until you have experienced it, it is not dynamic to your own awareness. — Goswami Kriyananda

Goswami Quotes By Amit Goswami

What if consciousness is the ground of being? What if the possibilities discovered by quantum physics are the possibilities of consciousness itself? Remember there is already a class of people who think in this way. They are called mystics, and they say it is all God. Finally, a few scientists dared to say that some of the characteristics attributed to God are similar to what we describe as consciousness. — Amit Goswami

Goswami Quotes By Goswami Kriyananda

Be thou a true yogi. A yogi who understands that everything he's looking for is really inside himself. Learn to live more in the Self. — Goswami Kriyananda

Goswami Quotes By Goswami Kriyananda

If you want to do one good thing in the world, the best thing you can do is give other people joy. — Goswami Kriyananda

Goswami Quotes By Goswami Kriyananda

If it (the good circumstances) changes will you be able to keep onto your happiness just as much? Because if not then your happiness is really built on sand. — Goswami Kriyananda

Goswami Quotes By Goswami Kriyananda

Happiness is self-generated. It depends on one's attitude of mind. The basis of happiness, is the simple fact that the deepest reality of our own nature is ever-existing, ever-conscious, ever-new joy. — Goswami Kriyananda

Goswami Quotes By Goswami Kriyananda

Religion is organized, and spirituality is what the individual feels in his relationship with truth and with God. And although spirituality may be expressed in a religion, many people are spiritual and never go to church. They aren't religious in the sense that they practice a certain type of discipline. — Goswami Kriyananda

Goswami Quotes By Ravi Ranjan Goswami

The syndicate was successful in including an officer and two other crew members in its plan. Sheikh employed old ways of enticing by wine, women and money to use them. — Ravi Ranjan Goswami

Goswami Quotes By Goswami Kriyananda

If anything or anyone distresses you, think how you'll feel a week - a month - a year later. If you can imagine yourself being happy and peaceful then, why waste all that time? Be happy and peaceful now. — Goswami Kriyananda

Goswami Quotes By Jayendra Puri Goswami

All is fine with the world... — Jayendra Puri Goswami

Goswami Quotes By Goswami Kriyananda

So what Jesus taught must be understood from the deepest level and that is one of the best sayings to show that he was talking in that way. In the book Revelations from Christ, I found out something that Yogananda said. That Jesus had said son of men and son of God, and people often misunderstand so sometimes the translations themselves are wrong for that reason. So when he said son of man he meant his human body and personality. When he said son of God, he meant the infinite Christ consciousness with which he'd obtained oneness. — Goswami Kriyananda

Goswami Quotes By Goswami Kriyananda

To be happy, you must live in, but not for, the present moment. — Goswami Kriyananda

Goswami Quotes By Goswami Kriyananda

Learn to live more in the Self. Come down a little bit to eat and talk as necessary. — Goswami Kriyananda
