A Quote by Sadhguru on guru, sage, yoga, wisdom, inspiration, transformation, change, perception, consciousness, enlightenment, realization, and spirituality

"I'm not interested in the wellbeing of society because society is a big lie.  Where is society?  I only see individual beings and only the individual can grow.  Each one is enormous and tremendous in his own way-each one is unique.  " -Sadhguru

A Quote by Hindu Teaching on hindu, sage, guru, king, mango, fruit, taste, sweet, and flavor

A king asked a sage to explain the Truth. In response the sage asked the king how he would convey the taste of a mango to someone who had never eaten anything sweet. No matter how hard the king tried, he could not adequately describe the flavor of the fruit, and, in frustration, he demanded of the sage "Tell me then, how would you describe it?" The sage picked up a mango and handed it to the king saying "This is very sweet. Try eating it!"

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

A Quote by Russell Targ on realization, teacher, guru, awakening, enlightenment, grace, serendipity, and transmission

When I write about "realizations," I am describing a state in which a practitioner has wisdom of who she or he is, and has embodied that wisdom; it has become integrated into daily life, thoughts, and activities. We often view "awakening" as first step towards such realization. Awakening can occur in the blink of an eye, frequently through the direct, heart-opening (heart-breaking) transmission of grace from an awakened teacher.
