Compassion is the root of all virtue and happiness – Swami Akhandananda

The more you think of others as yourself, the more loving your heart becomes, and the more is Self-knowledge revealed.

He who meditates well attains power to work more efficiently. He is never tired, beause his energy is not misspent in any way – he is never annoyed or worried.

Compassion is the root of all virtue and happiness and it is from compassion that the spiritual ideas begin to grow.

Always be calm, go on working without any fatigue. This the test: whether the mind is working properly or not, can be understood from this.

Weep and pray! How piteously men cry for their children and wives! But how few cry for the Lord?

Swami Akhandananda – a direct disciple of Sri Ramakrishna.

Forget that anyone is bad, that anyone is inferior. You have to go beyond the person’s behavior. The real person is God, peeping through the eyes. This is the highest ideal. Link for more teachings - (Swami Ashokananda)
The mind is susceptible to suggestions. It learns whatever you teach it. If through discrimination you can impress upon it the joy and fullness of life in the spirit and the folly of worldly attachments, then your mind will devote itself more and more to God.
