Dancing is not just a movement. When a movement becomes ecstatic then it is dance. When the movement is so total that there is no ego, then it is a dance.

 

A real emperor is one who lives in himself; he has a center of his own, he does not depend on anybody else.

 

Reality has not to be invented, it has to be discovered. It is already there. Hence science discovers, and true religion also discovers.

 

A real prayer arises out of gratitude, never out of fear and greed. A real prayer arises out of love for truth.

 

A person who lives in the present neither bothering about the past, nor bothering about the future is fresh, young; he is neither a child nor an old man.

 

When you live at the optimum, then you know what life is. And then you know the celebration of it and the benediction of it.

 

One has to live totally. Ones life torch has to burn from both ends even though it is only for one single moment, but then that single moment is eternity.

 

Ambition is insanity. Ambition shows that you are not at ease with yourself, that you are not at home.

 

We have to make laughter, rejoicing, dancing, singing, part of a healthy being just overflowing well-being.

 

If a person remains blissful in ordinary day-to-day life, doing small things but blissfully, then prayer is spread all over his life.

 

Meditation is something natural, something that is already hidden inside you and is trying to find its way to reach to the open sky, to the sun, to the air.

 

Laughter is a tremendously helpful method to shake off all dust that everybody gathers without his knowing.

Accept the wholeness of life; because to me the acceptance of the whole is the only holy experience in the world.

 

Try to understand that existence consists of polar opposites. If you choose one side, your life will remain only half; and a half-life is a miserable life.

 

Prayer is meaningless if it is not out of alertness. And a man of alertness need not have any prayer alertness is enough unto itself.

Why limit yourself to small things! When the whole is available, only stupid people will cling to small things. Be oceanic!

 

If you want life, then for life there is no fixed road. Life is here and now, multi-dimensional, spreading in every direction.

 

Growth means you are not moving in a circle, that something new is happening every day, every moment.

 

There is no other miracle in the world than meditation. It is the only science of transforming you into a new man.

 

Withdraw your energy from the non-essential and let it move into the direction of the essential. Discover your being, your individuality.

 

I do not give you any discipline, any philosophy. I simply help you to bring out your own consciousness into a state of flowering.

 

Witnessing is the greatest miracle in the world, because it takes you out of the circle of birth and death and gives you wings to fly into the eternal sky.

Be silent and you will understand not only about Zen, you will understand the very essence of existence itself.

 

The truth is showering on you in each breath, in each beat of your heart. Except truth, there is nothing else.

 

My whole teaching is just be yourself, never interfere with anybody elses freedom. Freedom is my ultimate value.

 

Harmony is happiness, and harmony is heaven. And harmony happens only when you are in tune with the whole. To be with the whole is to be holy.

 

There is no other greater ecstasy, no other greater blissfulness, than to know who you are. To know the inner space is to know all.

 

Your trust in the total opens all your sensitivities to their extreme. This whole existence becomes a sheer dance, a sheer celebration.

  

Never belong to a crowd; never belong to a nation; never belong to a religion; never belong to a race. Belong to the whole existence.

 

I want you to be in the very center of existence, of your being. That is the only way to understand this tremendous mystery that surrounds you.

 

The moment you experience your own being, you have experienced the being of this whole universe because your heartbeat is part of the heartbeat of the universe.

 

Never ask for sympathy. Be happy and love will be flowing towards you. Love is the right coin; sympathy is the wrong coin. It looks like love, it is not love.

 

A moment of truth is more valuable than a hundred years of life, because a moment of truth makes you part of eternity.

 

To see the beauty of the flower you need silence, not analysis; beauty can never be understood through analysis.

 

A truth cannot be read in a scripture, a truth has to be lived only in the innermost temple of your being.

 

Be fully, wholly aware of yourself. Because without being totally aware, you will never know the beauty and the splendor of this existence that surrounds you.

 

Remember one thing: that you should not leave this earth unless you have made it a little more beautiful, a little lovelier, a little more loving.

 

Unless the truth is your own experience, whatever you believe about truth is only a belief. And all beliefs are lies, and all believers are blind.

 

Anything that gives you freedom is right, and anything that destroys your freedom is wrong.

 

Once your intelligence and your innocence are available to you, just like two wings, the whole sky is yours. There are no more boundaries for you.

 

If you are clear and clean in the mind, you will be able to find solutions for every problem that arises in your life.

 

Life cannot be possessed. You cannot have it in your fist. If you want to have it, you have to keep your hands open.

 

We are bringing a new approach in religion. You do not go away from the world, but rather go deeper into it and change it. This is more courageous.

 

Life is precious, and it is a gift from existence. We should not waste it.

 

As you come to the center of your being you have found your original face. Your original face is the Buddha.

 

Love equalizes people. You give because you love, you give because you respect. You give and allow the man to feel, to be honored, that is true giving.

 

Do meditation without thinking of any result, enjoy meditating as an end in itself. And then some day the light explodes, the ego disappears.

When you become an absolute pool of silence, an aura of grace arises around you and follows you like your shadow; that is the shadow of your soul.

 

Grace is a by-product of meditation. The more silent you become inside, the more graceful you become on the outside.

 

If you are aware, you cannot be angry, because anger can exist only in a state of unawareness; that is a prerequisite for anger to exist.

 

To me, this is the only strength, the only power that we can transform life, we can transform consciousness.

 

It is very rare to find a person who accepts himself because the moment he accepts himself, he is reborn.

 

The only revolution possible is through taking the whole responsibility on yourself: I am the cause of my suffering. Hence I can be the cause of my bliss.

 

Suffering cannot exist without your support. Just withdraw your support, and suffering disappears.

 

Something disappears when you become aware, and something appears. Death disappears, deathlessness appears. The ego disappears, egolessness appears.
