It is hard to find a man who has desire for what he has not tasted, or who tastes the world and is untouched. Here in the world some crave pleasure, some seek freedom but it is hard to find a man who wants neither. It is hard to find a man who has an open mind, who neither seeks nor shuns wealth or pleasure, duty or liberation, life or death…He does not want the world to end. He does not mind if it lasts. Whatever befalls him, He lives in happiness.
- Ashtavakra Gita
One who is able to withdraw his senses from sense objects, as the tortoise draws his limbs within the shell, is to be understood as truly situated in knowledge.

The reach of entire science is within the parameters of time and space... Whereas
all the mysteries of the world are beyond time and space. This is the reason why
many mysteries will always remain mysteries for science.

When I was 5 years old, my mother always told me that happiness was the key to life. When I went to school, they asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up. I wrote down ‘happy’. They told me I didn’t understand the assignment, and I told them they didn’t understand life.
- John Lennon
The measure in which a person is blind in the field of religion, he is equally blind
in understanding all the other truths of life. This is the reason why the world is full
of mentally and intelligently blind people.
- Deep Trivedi
True realisation of the actual nature of this material world, its perishable, transitory and illusory aspects best dawns on a person in suffering.

A lie is just the truth waiting to be itself.
