"When man is
likely to forget his divine nature, through his growing
dependence on matter, and is likely to be reduced to a mere
money-making machine, an adjustment is necessary. ... a
nation which is great in the possession of material powers
thinks that that is all that is to be coveted, that that is
all that is meant by progress, that that is all that is
meant by civilization, and if there are other nations which
do not care to possess, and do not possess these powers,
they are not fit to live, their whole existence is useless.
On the other hand, another nation may think that mere
material civilization is utterly useless."
"If those whose eyes have been blinded by the glamor of
material things, whose whole dedication of life is to eating
and drinking and enjoying, whose whole ideal of possession
is lands and gold, whose whole ideal of pleasure is in the
sensations, whose god is money, and whose goal is a life of
ease and comfort in this world, and death after that, whose
minds never look forward, and who rarely think of anything
higher than the sense objects in the midst of which they
live, if such as these go to India, what do they
see? Poverty, squalor, superstition, darkness, hideousness
every where. Why? Because in their minds enlightenment means
dress, education, social politeness.
There [India, Bharat] lives the only race in the world
which, in the whole history of humanity, never went beyond
their frontiers to conquer anyone, who never coveted that
which belonged to anyone else. ...
Therein lies the strength that has made them invincible
through hundreds of years of oppression and foreign
invasions, and foreign tyranny. ... in that nation
even in the days of the direst disaster, spiritual giants
have never failed to arise."
"Did not the conqueror, the man who demonstrated his
religion with sword and gun, say that all the old ways were
mere superstition and idolatry?
Instead of throwing away superstition and making a real
search after truth, the test of truth became " What does the
West say?" The priests must go, the Vedas must be burned,
because the West has said so.
In and around these masses of superstition are nuggets
of gold and truth. Have you discovered means by which
to keep that gold alone, without any of the dross?
What is your motive? Are you sure that you are not actuated
by greed for gold, by thirst for fame, or power? Are you
really sure that you can stand to your ideals, and work on,
even if the whole world wants to crush you down?"
"[Our] ancient books and scriptures are the writings of
persons who came into direct contact with spiritual facts.
These books were not written for the intellect, nor can any
reasoning understand them, because they have been written by
men who have seen the things of which they write, and they
can be understood only by men who have raised themselves to
the same height."
"Religion cannot live in sects and societies. It is the
relation between the soul and God; how can it be made into a
society? ... Religion consists in realization."
"As different rivers, taking their start from different
mountains, running crooked or straight, all come and mingle
their waters in the ocean, so the different sects, with
their different points of view, at last all come unto
"I do not understand how people declare themselves to be
believers in God, and at the same time think that God has
handed over to a little body of men all truth, and that
they are the guardians of the rest of humanity. Do not
try to disturb the faith of any man. If you can give him
something better, if you can get hold of a man where he
stands and give him a push upwards, do so, but do not
destroy what he has. ... All these negative, breaking-down,
destructive teachers that are in the world can never do any
"Nowhere is it said
in the Vedas that man is born a sinner."
