- The Guru has no specific like or dislike. The only desire the Master has is for the disciple to grow spiritually. But, when the disciple aspires to please the Master, their own likes and dislikes begin to fade. #Ammapic.twitter.com/rmFyWSgBnM
- Most disciples oscillate between happiness and sorrow, love and hatred. They never stand in the middle. How do one stand still? We need to rid ourselves of our likes and dislikes. #Ammapic.twitter.com/l5PDP4wifv
- Our mind is like a clock’s pendulum. It always gravitates towards extremes. There is either love or hatred. If we love, we forget all else and “fall” in love. When we hate, we don’t even hesitate to kill. We are incapable of remaining in the center, at the equilibrium point.pic.twitter.com/KUU7jNKS2r
- जो यह सोचते हो कि वे यह ‘सीमित शरीर’ हैं वे अपने क्षुद्र अहंकार से कभी मुक्त नहीं हो सकते। इससे मुक्त होने के लिये यह दृढ़ विश्वास आवश्यक है कि मेरी आत्मा तथा परमात्मा एक हो। यही विश्वास सच्चे जीवन उत्सव की आधारशिला है।
- मनुष्य एक बीज की तरह है। बीज में वृक्ष बनने की क्षमता है। हर मनुष्य आत्म-रूप है। जब तक बीज वृक्ष नहीं बन जाता वह अपने बाह्य आवरण के अंधेरे में कैद रहेगा। इसी तरह जब तक हम अपने अहंकार का आवरण नहीं तोड़ते हम दुखी ही रहेंगे, स्वयं-प्रकाश आत्मा के अनन्त आनंद का अनुभव नहीं ले पायेंगे।pic.twitter.com/6wwK5GwzpY
- If anywhere there exist rules that prevent women from enjoying their rightful freedom — rules that obstruct their progress in society — then those are not God’s commandments but are born out of the selfishness of men. # Ammapic.twitter.com/vdGuCMj6k8
