The progress of the individual is determined by his actions : man becomes angel by noble deeds,
and beast by ignoble ones, for our deeds accompany us to the world beyond after physical
death. Forgiveness is Divine; there is no happiness higher than that which arises from
forgiving others. Dispassion is worthy of the highest praise, and passion is to be condemned
because the offspring of attachment to the things of the not-self is evil, while great good
arises from the philosophic virtues of dispassion, serenity, and contemplation.
With eyes covered with the film of Maya you complain that you cannot see God. If you wish to see Him, remove the film of Maya from off your eyes. Sri Ramakrishna
The sea must no longer be swept by storms, if it is to reflect the light of the sun in all its divine calmness and purity. Max Muller writing about the moral preparation for the study of The Vedanta
Let all beings be happy; let all beings be peaceful; let all beings be blissful. Swami Vivekananda
Do not hate anybody, because that force, that hatred, which comes out from you, must, in the long run, come back to you. If you love, that love will come back to you, completing the circuit. It is as certain as can be, that every bit of hatred that goes out of the heart of man comes back to him in full force; nothing can stop it, and every impulse of love comes back to him. Swami Vivekananda
