Teachings of Mahatma Gandhi:

#18. "To call woman the weaker sex is a libel; it is man's injustice to woman. If by strength you meant brute strength, then, indeed, a woman less brute than man. If by strength you meant moral power, then woman is immeasurably man's superior. Has she not greater intuition, is she not more self-sacrificing, has she not greater powers of endurance, has she not greater courage? Without her, man could not be"

#19. "Strength does not come from physical capacity. It comes from an indomitable will.”

#20. “My imperfections and failures are as much a blessing from God as my successes and my talents and I lay them both at his feet.”

Teachings of Mahatma Gandhi:

#21. "If we are to teach real peace in this world, and if we are to carry on a real war against war, we shall have to begin with the children"

#22. “The simplest acts of kindness are by far more powerful than a thousand heads bowing in prayer.”

#24. “There is force in the universe, which, if we permit it, will flow through us and produce miraculous results.”

Hari om tatsat

Teachings of Mahatma Gandhi:

#25. “Fearlessness is the first requisite of spirituality. Cowards can never be moral.”

Virtue/vice/happiness/sorrow all are attributes of the mind not the self. One is

neither the doer nor the enjoyer. One is ever free. One should remember that

one is pure consciousness and be happy. If you think you are free you will

become free. If you think you are bound you will become bound. You become

what you think.

Hare krshna hare rama

One should meditate upon that single non dual consciousness. It is dense, of

profound intelligence, serene, unperturbed and changeless. It is formless and

takes any shape like water. The self exists inside and outside the body. The

universe appears due to the ignorance of the self and disappears due to the

knowledge of the self just like a rope appears to be a snake till the truth of its

true identity is declared. The self remains intact even after the dissolution of

the universe.

A monk who has realized the self finds himself/herself alone in this crowd of humanity.

One’s bondage arises from one’s desire to live. The phenomenal world around

us is a mighty illusion. This illusion is the main cause for attraction to worldly

objects. A great person acts as if his body is different from him/her and that it

is only the subtle body, guided by the causal body that makes the body move.

He/she is just a witness of all that his/her body is doing.

The wise devotee sees only the supreme self everywhere. Neither praise nor insult torment him/her. Such a person has lost any zest for life and the fear of death does not haunt him/her. He/she is free from desires and contented with self knowledge.

We all are an essential part of this universe. We have not come into the universe but have actually come out of this universe. The society and the world are but extensions of your body. One who is self realized uses the body only to play the sport of life.
