Teachings of 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, because 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?
Spiritual life is not possible with an empty stomach, so real ‘religion’ in a country of chronic hunger is feeding the poor; then comes education and medical service.
Constant remembrance of God and unlimited reliance upon Him under all circumstances is Sadhana.
