The Angels Gracious Light of Soul, bending near the earth in me touched the golden heart strings of my heart and the worlds in silent obeisance lay to hear their voices "Peace and Joy! Peace and Joy unto All!" Upon this midnight clear I listen to their Word resounding still.

—Swami Kamalananda


From the Gurus and Swamis: AUM

“God has showered me with endless gifts. How can I ever count with my mind the infinite benefactions which my divine Creator bestows upon me from his blessed Soul? The offering from soul transcends the comprehension of mind. The bounties of God are beyond all power of human apprehension. The blessings of God are as transcendental as his perfection. Yet with a humble heart and grateful thankfulness let me always remember these gifts of my God to me."

—Swami Premananda, “Seven Gifts of God to Me”

"To be a son of God is not something one has to acquire: rather, one has only to receive His light and realize God has already conferred on him, at his very inception, that blessed status."

—Swami Yogananda Paramahansa

“That life is most blessed which is dedicated to manifest the attributes and righteousness of God for the inspiration, enlightenment, happiness and peace of all.”

—“Sayings of Shyamacharan Lahiri"


Noble Thoughts: ("Let Noble Thoughts come to us from all sides." —Rigveda)


"The Supreme, the Best Being of all,
the Source of Light for the world, art Thou, O Mazda!
As the Fountain of Light, as the World-Creator,
Thou revealest Thyself, O Most benevolent Mazda!
With Thy love, bless us with all things good,
for all the days of a long life, O Mazda!"


"In the spark of soul is hidden something like the original outbreak of all goodness, something like a brilliant light which incessantly gleams, and something like a burning fire which burns incessantly. This fire is nothing other than the Holy Spirit."
—Meister Eckhart


"The light of the Self reflects on itself, always turning to its own rapturous presence as the only knowledge that exists. In the impeccable space of our own heart, love adores love, bliss revels in bliss, light shines on light, every action is an act of worship and all perceptions are forms of meditation."
—Swami Shantananda
