The highest form of grace is silence – Swami Chinmayananda



The highest form of grace is silence.

You have two eyes but one vision. The eyes are two but the light that emanates from them both is one – vision.

A man firmly established in wisdom is tranquil and his equipoise is never broken even when he is investing his entire energy in the world outside for the service of mankind.

When you are sensitive enough, giving minimum unhappiness to others, whatever you do will be morally good.

Daily prayer and meditation are all wonderful therapeutic agencies in building up peace and happiness within an individual. The daily practice of meditation, at least in its early stages, is one of the most effective springboards for developing clear and precise thinking. 

A sincere meditator in his early days of struggles at his seat learns to concentrate. A mind held at concentration brings into view the deeper thoughts which were till then hidden from it, due to its own fluctuations. Great ideas are conceived only by alert mind held steady in this meditative pose, in unbroken concentration and dynamic vigil.
