Paramahansa Yogananda

A Quote by Paramahansa Yogananda on paramahansa yogananda, happiness, satisfaction, soul, and others

The happiness of one's own heart alone cannot satisfy the soul; one must try to include, as necessary to one's own happiness, the happiness of others.

A Quote by Paramahansa Yogananda on paramahansa yogananda, guidance, free will, obedience, respect, and right

Wise guidance never violates people's Free Will. A superior who demands obedience of his subordinates should show respect for their capacity to understand, and also for their Innate Right to their own Free Will.

A Quote by Paramahansa Yogananda on paramahansa yogananda, god, life, meditating, and trials

From the depths of slumber,
As I ascend the spiral stairway of wakefulness,
I whisper:
God! God! God!
Thou art the food, and when I break my fast
Of nightly separation from Thee,
I taste Thee, and mentally say:
God! God! God!
No matter where I go, the spotlight of my mind
Ever keeps turning on Thee,
And in the battle din of activity my silent war-cry is ever:
God! God! God!
When boisterous storms of trials shriek
And worries howl at me,
I drown their noises, loudly chanting:
God! God! God!
When my mind weaves dreams
With threads of memories,
On that magic cloth I do emboss:
God! God! God!
Every night, in time of deepest sleep,
My peace dreams and calls: Joy! Joy! Joy!
And my joy comes singing evermore:
God! God! God!
In waking, eating, working, dreaming, sleeping,
Serving, meditating, chanting, divinely loving,
My soul constantly hums, unheard by any:
God! God! God!

A Quote by Paramahansa Yogananda on joy, god, meditation, seductive, ever-new, infinite, ingenuity, paramahansa yogananda, yogananda, and autobiography of a yogi

Ever-new Joy is God. He is inexhaustible; as you continue your meditations during the years, He will beguile you with an infinite ingenuity. Devotees like yourself who have found the way to God never dream of exchanging Him for any other happiness; He is seductive beyond thought of competition.

A Quote by Sri Daya Mata on intution, meditation, and paramahansa yogananda

"Intuition is perceived mostly through the heart," Paramahansaji said.  This I have found.  When something is not right, I get feelings here in the heart.  There is an uneasiness that makes me think, "Oh, there is something wrong with that individual or with that situation."  It does not make me uncomfortable, but I am conscious of a little disturbance in my heart.  This is what Paramahansaji is referring to.  "Whenever you are concerned about something, or trying to find the right course to pursue, calmly concentrate on the heart.  Don't try to analyze the problem; just remain watching the heart."  Of course, it is good to sit quietly and think deeply about your problem after meditation; that has its place as well.  But as you go about your duties, when the thought of your problem arises, just put your mind at the heart center.  Concentrate there, and try to be aware of the feelings that are flowing from that center."
