My service to humanity
Is my real opportunity
To prove my genuine love
For God and God alone.

If your Lord Supreme requests you to do something, rest assured he has already given you the capacity – even more than necessary – long before you actually need it.

A Quote by Sri Chinmoy

Ingratitude is as old      
As man himself.    
Gratitude is a child    
Of yesterday.

A Quote by Sri Chinmoy on humility, ego, and gratitude

In the spiritual life the easiest way to conquer ego is to offer gratitude to God for five minutes daily. If you cannot offer gratitude for five minutes, then utter it for one minute. Offer your gratitude to God. Then you will feel that inside you a sweet, fragrant and beautiful flower is growing. That is the flower of humility.

A Quote by Sri Chinmoy on experience, distraction, aspiration, and one-pointed

In our spiritual life very often we get fascinating experiences and then we don't want to aspire anymore. It is true that experiences can give us encouragement, but very often when we get too many experiences we enter into the vital world. Suppose you are walking along a street toward your goal. If you see beautiful trees, ponds and flowers alongside the street, what happens? The scenery is so beautiful that you take a rest. You say, "Let me stay here and enjoy this," and then you stop and enjoy it. But your destination remains a far cry.   A sincere seeker knows what his goal is: the highest Truth. He will not delay his journey.  In the spiritual life we aspire for the highest Truth, for God, and for nothing else.

A Quote by Sri Chinmoy on god, heart, and love

There is only one immediate question:       
Where is God?     
The immediate answer is:     
God is where     
My heart's love-breath is.

A Quote by Sri Chinmoy on immortaliry, miracle, prayer, god, and imagination

I am not even six feet tall. Yet I am praying to the Absolute Supreme to reach His infinite Height, which is far beyond even my imagination's flight. For me to long to grow into that Height — is this not a miracle?       

I am mortal. My thoughts, my deeds, my experiences — everything that I have and everything that I am — represent mortality. Yet despite everything that I have and everything that I am, I am longing for Immortality. Is this not a miracle?

A Quote by Sri Chinmoy on time, self-giving, and service

Not one       
But twenty-four self-giving-hours     
Every day I have     
For my use.
