Sayings and Teachings of Swami Chidananda

There is no eye like that of knowledge. There is no penance like the practice of truth. There is no sorrow like attachment. There is no happiness like renunciation. There is no friend like Guru. The safe boat to cross the formidable Samsara is Satsanga (the company of those who have realized truth). Mercy is the highest virtue. Forgiveness is the highest power. The knowledge of Atman is the highest knowledge. The practice of virtue, the worship of God and helping others – these three form the very essence of a truly noble life. Never neglect them. Ever practice them. This is real earning. He who has this earning, he accumulates the greatest wealth even though his earthly income may be modest. Swami Chidananda
