Swami Chidananda Sayings and Thoughts

Spirituality means growing into the form of your Divine ideal. It is the transformation of your nature from human to Divine. This is brought about by Abhyasa, spiritual practice of Sadhana and Vairagya leading to renunciation. You have this great blessedness of having a dual awareness – a lesser awareness which is an error, and a greater awareness which is the truth, the correct awareness. And this wonderful fact grants you the privilege of being in a position to make yourself an instrument, not merely of the limitations, finitude and imperfections of your temporary, fleeting human personality, but choosing, on the other hand, to make yourself an instrument for the expression and manifestation of all the perfections that comprise your true, essential divine nature. Choose always to be the best, the highest. Choose to be what you really are. Choose to be the source of blessedness. Swami Chidananda
