Swami Vivekananda quotes (24)

All differences in this world are of degree, and not of kind, because oneness is the secret of everything.
Swami Vivekananda   Category:

All the powers in the universe are already ours. It is we who have put our hands before our eyes and cry that it is dark.
Swami Vivekananda   Category:

As different streams having different sources all mingle their waters in the sea, so different tendencies, various though they appear, crooked or straight, all lead to God.
Swami Vivekananda   Category:

Condemn none: if you can stretch out a helping hand, do so. If you cannot, fold your hands, bless your brothers, and let them go their own way.
Swami Vivekananda   Category:

External nature is only internal nature writ large.
Swami Vivekananda   Category:

GOD is to be worshipped as the one beloved, dearer than everything in this and next life.
Swami Vivekananda   Category:

If faith in ourselves had been more extensively taught and practiced, I am sure a very large portion of the evils and miseries that we have would have vanished.
Swami Vivekananda   Category:

If money help a man to do good to others, it is of some value; but if not, it is simply a mass of evil, and the sooner it is got rid of, the better.
Swami Vivekananda   Category:

In one word, this ideal is that you are divine.
Swami Vivekananda   Category:

Never think there is anything impossible for the soul. It is the greatest heresy to think so. If there is sin, this is the only sin; to say that you are weak, or others are weak.
Swami Vivekananda   Category:

Our duty is to encourage every one in his struggle to live up to his own highest idea, and strive at the same time to make the ideal as near as possible to the Truth.
Swami Vivekananda   Category:

Take up one idea. Make that one idea your life - think of it, dream of it, live on idea. Let the brain, muscles, nerves, every part of your body, be full of that idea, and just leave every other idea alone. This is the way to success.
Swami Vivekananda   Category:

That man has reached immortality who is disturbed by nothing material.
Swami Vivekananda   Category:

The moment I have realized God sitting in the temple of every human body, the moment I stand in reverence before every human being and see God in him - that moment I am free from bondage, everything that binds vanishes, and I am free.
Swami Vivekananda   Category:

The more we come out and do good to others, the more our hearts will be purified, and God will be in them.
Swami Vivekananda   Category:

The Vedanta recognizes no sin it only recognizes error. And the greatest error, says the Vedanta is to say that you are weak, that you are a sinner, a miserable creature, and that you have no power and you cannot do this and that.
Swami Vivekananda   Category:

The will is not free - it is a phenomenon bound by cause and effect - but there is something behind the will which is free.
Swami Vivekananda   Category:

The world is the great gymnasium where we come to make ourselves strong.
Swami Vivekananda   Category:

Truth can be stated in a thousand different ways, yet each one can be true.
Swami Vivekananda   Category:

We are what our thoughts have made us; so take care about what you think. Words are secondary. Thoughts live; they travel far.
Swami Vivekananda   Category:

When an idea exclusively occupies the mind, it is transformed into an actual physical or mental state.
Swami Vivekananda   Category:

Where can we go to find God if we cannot see Him in our own hearts and in every living being.
Swami Vivekananda   Category:

You cannot believe in God until you believe in yourself.
Swami Vivekananda   Category: Religion

You have to grow from the inside out. None can teach you, none can make you spiritual. There is no other teacher but your own soul.
