  • Love is to human hearts what sun is to flowers.

    - Swami Chinmayananda
  • The tragedy of human history is decreasing happiness in the midst of increasing comforts.

    - Swami Chinmayananda
  • Restrain the senses first', so that you may finally throw overboard the inner enemy - 'Desire'!

    - Swami Chinmayananda
  • Knowledge without practice is a dull dreary load upon the shoulders of a seeker!
