Spiritual Gems from Swami Chinmayananda

“Success or achievement is not the final goal.  It is the ‘spirit’ in which you act that puts the seal of beauty upon your life.”


“The tragedy of human history is decreasing happiness in the midst of increasing comforts.”


“A successful man is one who can lay a firm foundation with the bricks that others throw at him.”


“What you have is all His Gift to you. What you do with what you have is your Gift to Him.”


“In life to handle yourself, use your head, but to handle others, use your heart.”


“The cultured give happiness wherever they go. The uncultured whenever they go.”


“The highest form of grace is silence.”


“We may often give without love, but we can never love without giving.”


“To give love is true freedom; to demand love is pure slavery”
