Wisdom Of Ancient Gurus Of Sanatana Dharma – Hinduism

Wisdom of ancient gurus of Sanatana Dharma – Hinduism is from the teachings of Sanatsujatiya to Dhritarashtra.

Be a man of truth. The worlds are based on truth. They are the faces of truth. Immortality is based on truth.

One should turn away from evil and lead an austere life. This is the conduct ordained by Bhagavan. Truthfulness is the chief virtue practised by pious men.

When austerities are accompanied by the good qualities and are free from the bad qualities they are very efficacious and perfect.

Happy is the man who becomes free from the (distraction) of the five senses, the (distractions of the) mind and the (hauntings and fears of the) past and future.

It was because the one real Veda, the only truth, was not properly understood that several Vedas came into existence. Rare is the person who inheres in Truth.

He who knows the Truth is a truly wise man. Gifts, scriptural learning and religious sacrifices are motivated by greed.

The desires of those who deviate from truth remain unfulfilled. It is because Truth is not realized that religious ceremonies have been extensively prescribed.

A Brahmin who studies much is to be regarded merely as a man of many words. Only he who does not deviate from Truth is to be regarded as a true Brahmin.

Just as a branch of a tree is useful for pointing out the crescent moon, so also the Vedas are considered to be indirectly useful for realizing the eternal and Supreme Self which is the goal of life.

A person who is clever and can expound (the Vedas) is called a Brahmin. But only he who knows the Supreme Brahman is a (true) Brahmin.

Brahman should never be sought for in what is not the Self. It is not to be looked for even in the Vedas. Only then does one see Him.

One should silently meditate on Brahman, absolutely free from desires. Brahman will then reveal Itself to him and he will become the all-comprehensive (Brahman).

One becomes a muni (i.e. a silent recluse) by virtue of one's silent quietude, not merely by living in the forest. He who knows the Imperishable (Brahman) is the best of munis.
