A Quote by Sri Chinmoy on belief and disbelief

Why is it easier to disbelieve than to believe? It is easier to disbelieve than to believe because disbelief is an act of descent, whereas belief is an act of ascent. Descending is easier than ascending.

It is easier to disbelieve than to believe because disbelief is an act of breaking, and belief is an act of building. Building is more difficult than breaking.  

It is easier to disbelieve than to believe because disbelief is an act of our self-centred mind, whereas belief is an act of our self-giving heart.

A Quote by Sri Chinmoy on warrior, forgiveness, doubt, and ignorance

Each human being can at once be a fighter and forgiver. When self-doubt tortures him, he most play the role of a fighter. And when his own ignorance humiliates him, he must play the role of a forgiver.

A Quote by Sri Chinmoy on criticism and toleration

Each time we think of anothers imperfections
We must feel most sincerely
That we are misusing and losing
The most precious life-breath
Of our God-Realisation dream.

You have no idea
How much you do for mankind
When you love God unconditionally
Even for a fleeting moment.

A Quote by Sri Chinmoy on meditation

Meditation is man's self-awakening and God's Self-Offering.
When man's self-awakening and God's Self-Offering meet together
man becomes immortal in the inner world
and God becomes fulfilled in the outer world.

A Quote by Sri Chinmoy

What is Yoga? Yoga is self-conquest. Self-conquest is God-Realization. He who practices Yoga does two things with one stroke: he simplifies his whole life and he gets a freee access to the Divine.
