Swami Hariharananda Quotes

How easily we forget that we live in the Divine Presence. Our existence, power, desires, thoughts and actions are rooted in this presence. How many of us are aware of this truth, this knowledge? We have a personal library within. All we have to do is go inside and help will come. Meditation teaches you how to return to the central consciousness from where all wisdom flows. Meditation does more than clean the mind; it purifies your cells.
