Quotes from Jnaneshwari of Sant Dnyaneshwar



May the Self of the universe be pleased with this sacrifice of words and bestow His grace on me.

May the sinners no longer commit evil deeds,
may their desire to do good increase,
and may all beings live in harmony with one another.

May the darkness of sin disappear, may the world
see the rising of the sun of righteousness,
and may the desires of all creatures be satisfied.

May everyone keep the company of saints devoted to God,
who will shower their blessings on them.

Saints are walking gardens filled with wish-fulfilling trees,
and they are living villages of wish-fulfilling gems.
Their words are like oceans of nectar.

They are moons without blemish and suns without heat.
May these saints be the friends of all people.

May all beings in all the worlds be filled with joy,
and may they worship God forever.

May all those for whom this book is their very life be blessed with success in this world and the next.

Then Nivrittinath, the great Master said that this blessing will be granted. This brought great joy to Jnaneshwar.
