Wisdom of Ancient Hindu Teachers

A collection of wisdom of ancient Hindu Teachers. Total attention to whatsoever you do, that is the secret to success. He who considers himself the unluckiest is the most foolish person. Beware of sweet words and empty promises. We take God’s gifts for granted. Yet we complain at the slightest misfortune.

Source – The Balvihar Book of Picture Parables published by Chinmaya Mission. ‘Failures are the pillars of success!’ Knowledge arises through the combination of all our mistakes and errors, our good and bad deeds. … How many thousands and thousands of times you have assumed various bodies, how many good and bad deeds you have performed! You have forgotten all this and, by calculating the insignificant merits and demerits of this one little life, are suffering for no reason. Look at the numberless past lives you have lived; think about your limitless future lives.
