  • Mind is the creator of everything.

    Paramahansa Yogananda (2011). “The Law of Success: Using the Power of Spirit to Create Health, Prosperity, and Happiness”, p.8, BookBaby
  • Success is not rightly measured by wealth, prestige and power. Success is measured by the yardstick of happiness.

  • Release for constructive purposes the power you already have, and more will come. Move on your path with unflinching determination, using all the attributes of success. Tune yourself with the creative power of spirit.

    Paramahansa Yogananda (2011). “The Law of Success: Using the Power of Spirit to Create Health, Prosperity, and Happiness”, p.22, BookBaby
  • Conserve the vital energy, follow a balanced diet, and always smile and be happy. He who finds joy within himself discovers that his body is charged with electric current, life energy, not from food but from God. If you feel that you can't smile, stand before a mirror and with your fingers pull your mouth into a smile. It is that important!

  • Smiling away your troubles requires a clear conscience that harbors no insincerity.

  • May Thy Love shine forever on the sanctuary of my devotion. And may I be able to awaken Thy love in all hearts.

    Sri Sri Paramahansa Yogananda (2008). “Autobiography of a Yogi”, p.245, Diamond Pocket Books (P) Ltd.
  • An adept of Kriya Yoga conquers death by taking the soul beyond identification with the physical body, consciously and at will; and then returning to the consciousness of the mortal form again. By this process, he experiences the body as merely the material dwelling place of the soul. He can remain therein as long as he wants; and after that body has fulfilled its usefulness, he can quit it at will without suffering physical pain or mental pain due to attachment, and enter his omnipresent home in God.

  • He who knows his soul knows this truth: " I am beyond everything finite; I I now see that the Spirit, alone in a space with Its ever-new joy, has expressed Itself as the vast body of nature. I am the stars, I am the waves, I am the Life of all, I am the laughter within all hearts, I am the smile on the faces of the flowers and in each soul. I am the Wisdom and Power that sustain all creation. "

  • When the #‎ mind is strong and the #‎ heart is pure, you are free

  • We don't become angels merely by the instrument of death. If we are angels now, we will be angels in the hereafter. If we are dark, negative personalities now, we will be the same after death.

    Yogananda (Paramahansa) (1977). “Self-realization”
  • Proper visualization by the exercise of concentration and willpower enables us to materialize thoughts, not only as dreams or visions in the mental realm, but also as experiences in the material realm.

  • The deeper the Self-realization of a man, the more he influences the whole universe by his subtle spiritual vibrations, and the less he himself is affected by the phenomenal flux.

    Paramahansa Yogananda (2016). “Autobiography of a Yogi: (Complete Edition)”, p.166, Yogoda Satsanga Society of India
  • When you learn to live for others, they will live for you.

  • Success is not rightly measured by the worldly standards of wealth, prestige and power. None of these bestow happiness unless they are rightly used. To use them rightly one must possess wisdom and love for God and man.

  • Truths are more than imagination; they are real. Yet their origin is a thought in the mind of God.

    Yogananda (Paramahansa) (1969). “Self-realization Magazine”
  • With right attitude, life is very simple and very easy.

  • Carrying a thought with dynamic will power means holding it until that thought pattern develops dynamic force. When a thought is made dynamic by will force, it can manifest according to the mental blueprint you have created.

  • The reflection, the verisimilitude, of life that shines in the fleshly cells from the soul source is the only cause of man's attachment to his body; obviously he would not pay solicitous homage to a clod of clay. A human being falsely identifies himself with his physical form because the life currents from the soul are breath-conveyed into the flesh with such intense power that man mistakes the effect for a cause, and idolatrously imagines the body to have life of its own.

    Sri Sri Paramahansa Yogananda (2008). “Autobiography of a Yogi”, p.472, Diamond Pocket Books (P) Ltd.
  • No one appears on our stage unless the director has placed them there for our benefit

  • Don't depend on death to liberate you from your imperfections. You are exactly the same after death as you were before. Nothing changes; you only give up the body. If you are a thief or a liar or a cheater before death, you don't become an angel merely by dying. If such were possible, then let us all go and jump in the ocean now and become angels at once! Whatever you have made of yourself thus far, so will you be hereafter. And when you reincarnate, you will bring that same nature with you. To change, you have to make the effort. This world is the place to do it.

  • Harmony with nature will bring you a happiness known to few city dwellers. In the company of other truth seekers it will be easier for you to meditate and think of God.

  • Wise guidance never violates people's Free Will. A superior who demands obedience of his subordinates should show respect for their capacity to understand, and also for their Innate Right to their own Free Will.

    J. Donald Walters, Swami Kriyananda, Yogananda (Paramahansa) (2004). “Conversations with Yogananda”, p.70, Crystal Clarity Publishers
  • I am calmly active, actively calm. I am the prince of peace sitting on a throne of poise, directing the kingdom of my activity.

  • No action is ever an isolated event. Always, it invites from the universe a reaction that corresponds exactly to the type and the force of energy behind the deed.

    Paramahansa Yogananda (1990). “The Essence of Self-Realization: The Wisdom of Paramhansa Yogananda”, Crystal Clarity Pubs
  • Work for god, love god alone, and be wise with god. When an ordinary man puts the necessary rime and enthusiasm into meditation and prayer, he becomes a divine man.

  • Intuition is the discriminative faculty that enables you to decide which of two lines of reasoning is right. Perfect intuition makes you a master of all.

  • As I radiate love and goodwill to others, I will open the channel for God's love to come to me.

    Yogananda (Paramahansa) (1984). “Self-realization”
  • Peace is the altar of God, the condition in which happiness exists.

  • Everything is Spirit - in essence, though hidden in manifestation. If you had the perception, you would see God in everything.

  • Thinkers do not accept the inevitable; they turn their efforts toward changing it.
