Sayings and Quotes of Swami Ranganathananda

The perfect man is the truly free man. It is a tragedy the more advanced as a state the more insecure and unhappy are its people. You have money. Have it and enjoy it, but remember there are others who must also be made to share in that joy. It is the search for reality which is beyond the determinism of cause and effect, beyond the relativity of virtue and vice and of time and space. In that alone is true life, freedom, and happiness. The finite, the relative, and the conditioned cannot be the limit of man’s search for knowledge and happiness. Swami Ranganathananda
