Sri Chinmoy Quotes

Try not to change the world. You will fail. Try to love the world. Lo, the world is changed. Changed forever.

Not by blaming the world, not by shunning the world, but only be loving the world can I have peace of mind

Love the world. Otherwise, you will be forced to carry the heaviest load: your own bitter self.

Yesterday I was clever,
That is why I wanted to change the world.
Today I am wise,
That is why I am changing myself.

I am very happy
Because I have conquered myself
And not the world.
I am very happy
Because I have loved the world
And not myself.

You must never forget that greatness does not guarantee happiness but goodness always does

Death is not the end
Death can never be the end.

Death is the road.
Life is the traveller.
The Soul is the Guide


Our mind thinks of death.
Our heart thinks of life
Our soul thinks of Immortality

Death is not the end death can never be the end. Death is the road. Life is the traveller. The Soul is the Guide

Hope is sweet.
Hope is illumining.
Hope is fulfilling.
Hope can be everlasting.
Therefore, do not give up hope,
Even in the sunset of your life.

Hope knows no fear.

Hope dares to blossom even inside the abysmal abyss.

Hope secretly feeds and strengthens promise.

Peace begins when expectations end.

Deepen your faith in yourself.
Nothing will be able
To frighten or weaken you.

If failure has the strength to turn your life into bitterness itself, then patience has the strength to turn your life into the sweetest joy. Do not surrender to fate after a single failure. Failure, at most, precedes success.

Your mind has a flood of questions.
There is but one teacher
Who can answer them.
Who is that teacher?
Your silence-loving heart.

Beyond speech and mind,
Into the river of ever-effulgent Light
My heart dives.
Today thousands of doors, closed for millennia,
Are opened wide.

True gratitude can never come
From the mind.
It has to flow from the heart
To the mind, vital and body
Until everything that we have and are
Is a sea of gratitude.

When you are right, everything around you is right, for the beautiful flow that is inside your heart has the capacity to spread its fragrance of oneness-light all around you.

Your defeats in life's battlefield
Will soon be ending,
Because your mind is no longer indifferent
To your heart's spontaneous enthusiasm.

The language of the heart
Is the only language
That everybody can understand.

I shall now call myself;
I shall now call.
In the forest of my heart, seeing myself,
I shall love myself and love myself.
I shall be my own quest,
My absolute wealth.
The journey of light supreme will commence
In the heart of freedom.

The word "impossible" is only in the mind
And not in the heart.
If we can remain in the heart,
There will be no end to our progress.

Man invents war. Man discovers peace. He invents war from without. He discovers peace from within. War man throws. Peace man sows. The smile of war is the flood of human blood. The smile of peace is the love, below, above.

World-peace can be achieved when the power of love replaces the love of power.

Have little,
Need less:
This is the way
To inner peace.

Surrender is a journey
From the outer turmoil
To the inner peace.

Is in inner awakening,
And this inner awakening
We must share
With the rest of the world.

Peace begins
When expectation ends.

No price is too great to pay for inner peace. Peace is the harmonious control of life. It is vibrant with life-energy. It is a power that easily transcends all our worldly knowledge. Yet it is not separate from our earthly existence. If we open the right avenues within, this peace can be felt here and now.

I meditate
So that I can inundate
My entire being
With the omnipotent power of peace.

A moment's truth
Can and shall make the world beautiful.
A moment's peace
Can and shall save the world.
A moment's love
Can and shall make the world perfect.

Peace is something tangible. It silences the outgoing energy of the mind and feeds the aspiring heart. Peace is not merely the absence of quarreling and fighting. True peace is not affected by the roaring of the world, outer or inner. This sea of peace is at our command if we practise the spiritual life.

Peace is eternal. It is never too late to have peace. Time is always ripe for that. We can make our life truly fruitful if we are not cut off from our Source, which is the peace of Eternity.

If we can feel that it is not our voice, not our fingers, but some reality deep inside our heart which is expressing itself, then we will know that it is the soul’s music.

Not the power to conquer others
But the power to become one with others
is the ultimate power.

The inner light actually comes from the soul; it is already inside us. The moment we can have free access to our soul, we will see that this light is coming to the fore to permeate our whole outer existence.

True inner joy is self-created.
It does not depend on outer circumstances.
A river is flowing in and through you carrying the message of joy.
This divine joy is the sole purpose of life.

Real joy means immediate expansion. If we experience pure joy, immediately our heart expands. We feel that we are flying in the divine freedom-sky. The entire length and breadth of the world becomes ours, not for us to rule over, but as an expansion of our consciousness. We become reality and vastness.

True humility means giving joy to others.
