Swami Rama Tirtha Sayings and Thoughts

If you must realize unity with God, realize first your unity with the Whole Nation. Let this intense feeling of identity with every creature within this land be throbbing in every fiber of your frame. When you wake up to your oneness with Life, Light and Love and immediately the Central Bliss will commence springing forth from you in the shape of happy heroic work and of both wisdom and virtue. This is inspired life, this is your birthright. You have simply to shine as the Soul of All. Then energy, life activity will naturally begin to radiate from you. The flower blooms and fragrance begins to emanate of itself. The way to gain anything is to loose it. Swami Rama Tirtha
