Swami Sai Premananda

A Quote by Swami Sai Premananda on perfection, spirituality, awakening, personality, and life

How do you know how to be perfect? You do not know how to be perfect; you learn how to be perfect. It is the spiritual work that one does daily which awakens your world on the path to perfection. The world begins to reflect how to be perfect by experiences and actions, going on and around you all the time. These are the things that cannot be taught in books, as there are too many variances in behaviour and personality. The tough lessons of love and friendship happen throughout our own lives and we must seek to find the lessons of life hidden deep within all interactions.

A Quote by Swami Sai Premananda on witnessing, self, others, goodness, and reflection

You see there are three steps: witnessing the mind, witnessing others and then witnessing yourself. That is the exact way in which it happens. All of this is transferred from inside to outside and then back to you. A perfect reflection of the mind; this is the main way that you can perfect yourself. It is your duty and responsibility to learn from others. Take what is good from others, and incorporate it within yourself. Take what needs enhancing in others and enhance it within.

A Quote by Swami Sai Premananda on witness, consciousness, and reactions

This is extremely important—becoming the witness. If you cannot become the witness silently within, you will not be able to consciously be a witness to your actions and reactions in the world around you. Then you truly cannot see yourself. You will only see yourself as you think you are, but not as you really are.

A Quote by Swami Sai Premananda on mind, spirituality, enlightenment, and guru

A limiting mind in spirituality gets you nowhere. Always remember that. If you limit [God], you limit yourself.
