Here are 15 quotes by him that will give a different perspective on life:

  •   “I am Realistic, I expect Miracles.”

  • When you say to a woman or a man, ‘I love you,’ you are simply saying, ‘I cannot be deceived by your body, I have seen you.  Your body may become old but I have seen you, the bodiless you.  I have seen your innermost core, the core that is divine.’  Liking is superficial.  Love penetrates and goes to the very core of the person, touches the very soul of the person.”

  •  “Real love is not an escape from loneliness, real love is an overflowing aloneness. One is so happy in being alone that one would like to share.”

  •  “The real seeker of truth never seeks the truth. On the contrary, he tries to clean himself of all that is untrue, inauthentic, insincere – and when his heart is ready, purified, the guest comes. You cannot find the guest, you cannot go after him. He comes to you; you just have to be prepared. You have to be in a right attitude.”

  •  “Real communication happens in silence.”

  •  “Once a person is at the center of love, there is very rarely a possibility for him to fall back down because he has tasted something of the heights. Now valleys will be very dark, ugly; he has seen sunlit peaks, not very high, but still high; now his whole desire will be.”

  •  “Remain continuously on a honeymoon.  Go on searching and seeking each other, finding new ways of loving each other, finding new ways of being with each other.  And each person is such an infinite mystery, inexhaustible, unfathomable, that it is not possible that you can ever say, ‘I have known her,’ or, ‘I have known him.’  At the most, you can say, ‘I have tried my best, but the mystery remains a mystery.’  In fact the more you know, the more mysterious the other becomes.  Then love is a constant adventure.”

  •  “The moment you accept yourself, you become beautiful.”

  •  “I say to you, you are absolutely free, unconditionally free.  Don’t avoid the responsibility; avoiding is not going to help.  The sooner you accept it the better because immediately you can start creating yourself.  And the moment you create yourself great joy arises, and when you have completed yourself, the way you wanted to, there is immense contentment, just as when a painter finishes his painting, the last touch, and a great contentment arises in his heart.  A job well done brings great peace.  One feels that one has participated with the whole.”
  •  “Listen to your being. It is continuously giving you hints; it is a still, small voice. It does not shout at you, that is true. And if you are a little silent you will start feeling your way. Be the person you are. Never try to be another, and you will become mature. Maturity is accepting the responsibility of being oneself, whatsoever the cost. Risking all to be oneself, that’s what maturity is all about.”

  • “Nobody has the power to take two steps together, you can take only one step at a time.”
  •  “The men who love power never fall in love. Even if they fall in love they keep themselves at a distance.”


  • “Sadness gives depth. Happiness gives height. Sadness gives roots. Happiness gives branches. Happiness is like a tree going into the sky, and sadness is like the roots going down into the womb of the earth. Both are needed, and the higher a tree goes, the deeper it goes, simultaneously. The bigger the tree, the bigger will be its roots. In fact, it is always in proportion. That’s its balance.”

  • “Love knows no boundaries.  Love cannot be jealous because love cannot possess.  It is ugly, the very idea that you possess somebody because you love.  You possess somebody – it means you have killed somebody and turned him into a commodity.   Only things can be possessed.  Love gives freedom.  Love is freedom.”

  •  “Responsibility is always the very first step of freedom.”
