Quotes Sri Chinmoy

„No religion is absolutely perfect.“

—  Sri Chinmoy
Context: No religion is absolutely perfect. Yet not only do we fight for religion, but also are we often willing to sacrifice our lives for it. And what we hopelessly fail to do is to live it. A true religion is that which has no caste, no creed, no colour. It is but an all-uniting and all-pervading embrace.

„The Source is God, who is all Love.“

—  Sri Chinmoy
Context: Life is nothing but the expansion of love. We can cultivate divine love by entering into the Source. The Source is God, who is all Love.

„Life is nothing but the expansion of love.“

—  Sri Chinmoy

„When we repeat the name of God, if love comes to the fore, then our prayer, our concentration, our meditation, our contemplation are genuine.“

—  Sri Chinmoy
Context: Nothing can be greater than love. God is great only because He has infinite Love. If we want to define God, we can define Him in millions of ways, but I wish to say that no definition of God can be as adequate as the definition of God as all Love. When we say "God", if fear comes into our mind, then we are millions and billions of miles away from Him. When we repeat the name of God, if love comes to the fore, then our prayer, our concentration, our meditation, our contemplation are genuine. p. 2, Part 1

„The very acceptance of the spiritual life demands enormous courage. This courage is not the courage of a haughty, rough person who will strike others to assert his superiority; it is totally different.“

—  Sri Chinmoy
Context: The very acceptance of the spiritual life demands enormous courage. This courage is not the courage of a haughty, rough person who will strike others to assert his superiority; it is totally different. This courage is our constant awareness of what we are entering into, of what we are going to become, of what we are going to reveal.

„Man invents war. Man discovers peace.“

—  Sri Chinmoy
Context: Man invents war. Man discovers peace. He invents war from without. He discovers peace from within. War man throws. Peace man sows. The smile of war is the flood of human blood. The smile of peace is the love, below, above.

„Peace has a special friend: Joy. Anger has only one friend: Destruction.“

—  Sri Chinmoy
Context: Anger has an enemy: Peace. Peace has no enemy. Peace has a special friend: Joy. Anger has only one friend: Destruction. April 27

„It is an act of folly on our part to expect the same truth, the same knowledge and the same power from both science and spirituality.“

—  Sri Chinmoy
Context: Now what should be the relation between science and spirituality? It should be a relation of mutual acceptance and true understanding. It is an act of folly on our part to expect the same truth, the same knowledge and the same power from both science and spirituality. We must not do that. Neither must we set up the same goal for science and spirituality.

„Science depends on outer experiment. Spirituality depends on inner searching and seeking.“

—  Sri Chinmoy
Context: Science depends on outer experiment. Spirituality depends on inner searching and seeking. A scientist discovers the power that very often threatens even his own life. A spiritual seeker discovers the power that guides and moulds his life into a life of divine fulfilment.

„Because everybody feels superior, disharmony at every moment is entering into our lives.“

—  Sri Chinmoy
Context: Lack of harmony comes when I feel that I know how to do something better than you. Lack of harmony is the song and dance of superiority. Because everybody feels superior, disharmony at every moment is entering into our lives. #337, Part 8

„When we try to express the experience of the Infinite Consciousness, our human tongue loses all its power of expression.“

—  Sri Chinmoy
Context: When we try to express the experience of the Infinite Consciousness, our human tongue loses all its power of expression. What shall we do then? We shall have to remain silent. Lo! In no time we shall realise that Silence is infinitely more eloquent and more fruitful than words. June 19

„A true religion is that which has no caste, no creed, no colour. It is but an all-uniting and all-pervading embrace.“

A true religion is that which has no caste, no creed, no colour. It is but an all-uniting and all-pervading embrace.

„If you really love someone, then it is difficult to find fault with him. His faults seem negligible, for love means oneness.“

—  Sri Chinmoy
Context: Where love is thick, faults are thin. If you really love someone, then it is difficult to find fault with him. His faults seem negligible, for love means oneness. Citation- ffb-132, Part 4

„In my philosophy everyone, including the poor, sick and aged, belongs to one family — God’s Family.“

—  Sri Chinmoy
Context: In my philosophy everyone, including the poor, sick and aged, belongs to one family — God’s Family. God is at once poor and rich, sick and healthy, young and old, for He exists inside each and every individual. Here on earth we are all God’s children.

„War forgets peace. Peace forgives war. War is the death of the life human. Peace is the birth of the Life Divine.“

—  Sri Chinmoy
Context: War forgets peace. Peace forgives war. War is the death of the life human. Peace is the birth of the Life Divine. Our vital passions want war. Our psychic emotions desire peace.
