A Quote by Sri Chinmoy on god and heart

in

You may not know,
But it is absolutely true:
With each heartbeat
  Your heart is calling: “God, God!”  
You may not hear it,
But God Himself definitely hears
Your heart’s cry.

A Quote by Sri Chinmoy on help, service, and humility

The moment we use the term 'help', a kind of egocentric idea enters into us. If we help someone, that means we are in a superior position. When we help, we feel that we are one step ahead or one step higher than the ones that we are helping. But if we serve someone, then we offer our capacity with humility, on the strength of our loving concern and oneness. So let us use the proper term, 'service'.

A Quote by Sri Chinmoy

To humiliate a fellow seeker       
Is to ruin     
One's own perfection-performance     
On the life-stage

When I was an animal I evolved through selfishness.
Now that I am a man my evolution can be achieved only through self-sacrifice.

A Quote by Sri Chinmoy on teacher and master

 How can one know who his spiritual teacher is?...His heart looks at the spiritual Masters and makes the choice. When the heart sees a spiritual Master, if it is overwhelmed with joy, then there is every probability that that spiritual Master is the right one for the seeker.

A Quote by Sri Chinmoy on joy and self-giving

The joy of a self-giving life       
Can neither be measured     
Nor be expounded.

A Quote by Sri Chinmoy on aspiration, imagination, vivekananda, spirituality, and meditation

Imagination plays a most significant role in the spiritual life. Suppose you are not having good meditations, but six months ago you had a very good, powerful, high meditation. What you can do is try to imagine that powerful meditation. Then your imagination will become reality. After fifteen minutes or half an hour, you will get a good meditation. Vivekananda was such a great spiritual figure, yet sometimes for six months at a time he did not have a good meditation. What did he do? He used to imagine a time when he did have a good meditation, and inside his imagination was aspiration. So imagination is very good.
