Nityananda Quotes

Once you attain perfect inner peace, there is
No need to travel anywhere.
No need to see anything.
No need for pilgrimages to holy places.
All can be seen within.Coming and going are simply the mind’s delusions.
True peace, true liberation is attained
When the one Self in all is seen.
This is liberation from bondage,
This is desirelessness.
If you are looking for the object held in
Your hand,
Look in your hand—not elsewhere!
So with all things:
Test them within.Bhagavan Nityananda of Ganeshpuri
