About this Site…

It took 45 years to create this web page!

The quotes on this site are taken from my workshops and writings, they represent the essence of the wisdom and realizations that have transformed my life and the lives of the many thousands I have shared them with. What I offer you here was first known to my head many years before it became known to my heart.

These quotes are divided into 29 topics, each dealing with a different aspect of life. From the influence of your deep-rooted beliefs to following your dharma/ calling; from the nature of blame to the healing power of compassion and forgiveness; from the feedback your life gives you to the dynamics driving relationships, and to a gamut of other insights, this wisdom will take you to an uncommon level of consciousness.

It is my hope that the wisdom I share will give you insights that might otherwise take long to realize. Accept what took 45 years to ripen in my heart through my study and teaching of great thinkers of both Western and Eastern traditions, the endless hours I have given to reflection on these teachings, and my experience of applying this wisdom in my own life, as my gift to you.

  • Words

    Sweet words can uplift someone more than the best medicine, whereas no weapon can destroy someone as well as harsh words.

  • Reflection

    Reflection is part of the Vedic process of gaining wisdom. It takes us to a place in which we gain deeper insight into the nature of the life we are living. Real exploration is of the world within.

  • Spiritual Practice and the Ego

    Real spiritual practice does not nourish the material ego; it dissolves it.

  • The Legacy of the Heart

    When you become close to another person, you have the chance to place the fragrance of flowers on their heart, so they will always carry the scent of that special feeling they have for you. Or you can leave the stench of scars on their heart, and its pain will be aroused by their memory of you. What legacy do you choose to leave on another’s heart?

  • God is Always Speaking to Us

    God is constantly speaking to all of us; but not all of us care to listen.
