self : brahman

Those who realize the Self enter into the peace that brings complete self-control and perfect patience. They see themselves in everyone and everyone in themselves. Evil cannot overcome them because they overcome all evil. Sin cannot consume them because they consume all sin. Free from evil, free from sin and doubt, they live in the kingdom of Brahman. Your majesty, this kingdom is yours!

- Brihadaranyaka Upanishad

you are one

You are one. You are pure awareness. The world is not real. It is cold and lifeless. Nor is ignorance real. So what can you wish to know?

- Ashtavakra Gita 10:5

the right path

When we see that we have gone wrong, it is our duty to retrace our footsteps and proceed again by the right path.

- Mohandas Gandhi


The thoughtless glutton who gorges himself beyond His digestive fire's limits will be consumed by limitless ills.

Knowledge acquired by a man in his prior birth, wealth given away in charity in his prior existence, and works done by him in a previous incarnation, go ahead of his soul in its sojourn.

- Garuda Purana
