Paramahansa Yogananda


Be as simple as you can be; you will be astonished to see how uncomplicated and happy your life can become.


Freedom means the power to act by soul guidance, not by the compulsions of desires and habits. Obeying the ego leads to bondage; obeying the soul brings liberation.


God is simple. Everything else is complex. Do not seek absolute values in the relative world of nature.


God is the life behind your life, the sight behind your eyes, the taste behind your tongue, and the love behind your love. To realize this to the fullest extent is Self-realization. Without God’s power you can do nothing. If you always hold this thought, you cannot go wrong, because you will have purified the temple of your mind and your soul with the vibrations of God.


God’s grace flows into us the more we open ourselves to Him. It doesn’t come from outside. It's the operation from within of our own higher reality the more we live in soul-consciousness. The more you attune to His will the more you will find His blessing in everything you do.


Have only love in your heart for others. The more you see the good in them, the more you will establish good in yourself.


Know that this universe is nothing but a dream bluff of nature to test your consciousness of immortality.


My thoughts with open mouths seek to drink of bliss in all activities of life. My wild fancies dip their curiosity-parched lips in the golden river of bliss. My feelings swim on waves of ever new bliss. My intuition, spread like the ubiquitous ether through everything, mingles with the all-pervading, inly flowing bliss.

Feeling Ever-Increasing Bliss in Meditation is the Surest Sign of the Divine Presence

Bliss is the polestar to which all mariner souls, storm-tossed on the waves of tumultuous sorrow and exciting pleasure, look for guidance.

Bliss is God’s consciousness - His being, His supreme quality, His infinite life. Feeling an ever-increasing bliss in attentive meditation is the surest sign of His presence. The greater the bliss, the deeper the contact with God.


No matter what you are doing, keep the undercurrent of happiness, the secret river of joy, flowing beneath the sands of your various thoughts and the rocky soil of your hard trials. Learn to be secretly happy within your heart in spite of all circumstances.


Only he, who is free from the sense of self-importance,becomes richer and richer in spirituality until he is one with God.


The body is only a garment. How many times you have changed your clothing in this life, yet because of this you would not say that you have changed. Similarly, when you give up this bodily dress at death you do not change. You are just the same, an immortal soul, a child of God.


The greatest romance is with the Infinite. You have no idea how beautiful life can be. When you suddenly find God everywhere, when He comes and talks to you and guides you, the romance of divine love has begun.


The kingdom of God is not in the clouds, in some designated point of space; it is right behind the darkness that you perceive with closed eyes. Feel that, just behind the screen of your devotional demands, God is listening to the silent words of your soul.


The stream of knowledge,’ Sir James Jeans writes in The Mysterious Universe, ‘is heading toward a non-mechanical reality; the universe begins to look more like a great thought than like a great machine.’... From science, then, if it must be so, let man learn the philosophic truth that there is no material universe; its warp and woof is maya, illusion.


THE TRUE EXPERIENCE OF SPIRITUAL ECSTASY - BEYOND THE KALEIDOSCOPE OF SUBCONSCIOUS: In the subconscious dreamland you can drink a glass of hot milk, but this experience comes to you unbidden; in the superconscious state you can create that or any other experience consciously and at will. Unless you are able to do this, do not delude yourself that you have reached superconsciousness.

In the superconscious state you can see or know anything that you wish to - not by imagination but in reality. I can sit in this chair and transfer my mind to India and see exactly what is going on in my old home there.

The advancing devotee progresses through three stages of spiritual awareness…First he experiences superconsciousness, oneness with the creative power in creation: Aum…Next comes Christ Consciousness, merging in the Infinite Intelligence within creation: Tat..Finally, He attains the highest, Cosmic Consciousness, the Truth beyond creation, the ineffable Absolute: Sat.


The wave is the same as the ocean, though it is not the whole ocean. So each wave of creation is a part of the eternal Ocean of Spirit. The Ocean can exist without the waves, but the waves cannot exist without the Ocean.


There is a magnet in your heart that will attract true friends. That magnet is unselfishness, thinking of others first… when you learn to live for others, they will live for you. Learn to be calm and you will always be happy. The happiness of one’s own heart alone cannot satisfy the soul; one must try to include, as necessary to one’s own happiness, the happiness of others. From Joy we came; for Joy we live; and in the sacred divine joy we will one day melt again.


We think of the baby Jesus as helpless in his crib, dependent on his mother’s milk and care; yet within that tiny form was the infinite Christ, the light of the universe in which we are all dancing as motion-picture shadows. During one of our day-long Christmas meditations, when I prayed to see the baby Christ, the light of the spiritual eye in my forehead opened its rays, and I saw Jesus as an infant. He appeared in such beauty and power of God. All the forces of nature were playing in that baby-face. In the light of those eyes the universe trembled–waiting for the command of those eyes. Such was the infant the Wise Men beheld—a little child over whom the angels stood watch, and in whom the whole universal consciousness was manifest.


Wrath springs only from thwarted desires. I do not expect anything from others, so their actions cannot be in opposition to wishes of mine. I would not use you for my own ends; I am happy only in your own true happiness.


You must not let your life run in the ordinary way; do something that nobody else has done, something that will dazzle the world. Show that God’s creative principle works in you.


YOUR NEW WORK SHOULD BE YOUR ONLY CONCERN NOW. DO NOT FEEL ATTACHMENT TO THE OLD. ACCEPT CHANGES WITH EQUANIMITY, AND PERFORM IN A SPIRIT OF DIVINE FREEDOM WHATEVER DUTIES COME YOUR WAY. IF GOD WERE TO SAY TO ME TODAY: “COME HOME!” WITHOUT A BACKWARD GLANCE I WOULD LEAVE ALL MY OBLIGATIONS HERE - ORGANIZATION, BUILDINGS, PLANS, PEOPLE - AND HASTEN TO OBEY HIM. RUNNING THE WORLD IS HIS RESPONSIBILITY. HE IS THE DOER, NOT YOU OR I.
