Do not feel guilty if you have a certain amount of expectations that you cannot get rid of.
Religion is like politics. It is a dictatorship with the Guru or leader being the dictator setting the rules. Start a spiritual revolution and come out of this suppression. Go towards real spirituality, towards democracy, where your voice is being heard.
Priests and organizers are like agents. religion is their business and images of gurus and icons are their products. They have to sell something and get income to make their living and if they can attract people to buy at their tents by selling those pictures, it is fine for them. It is human worship and it is wrong.
Who are you to decide upon life or death? Who are you to decide whether a person should live or die? Who are you to torture another human being?
I can’t change my past and I don’t want to. I am who I am and don’t deny any part of that. I keep my personal history open for you to see. Maybe it will show you the way out of a religion, out of a sect, away from a fake guru and from superstition and towards taking your own responsibility.
Meditation is a good way to discover your feelings and to come from head to heart.
Men wrote the scriptures saying that women should grieve forever once they are dead. For themselves there is no such rule. They would not have put anything in the scriptures that would cause them a disadvantage!
People who blame western culture and women’s clothing for sex crimes in India should take off their shirts and pants, too, because that dress also comes from western culture.
Take a step to make relations closer: call the other one your Friend!
Love is the most therapeutic energy.
People often say and do things that they don’t believe in. How long can you play such a drama? You have to live in your original consciousness.
Don’t you think that the basic reason for you to believe in religion, to follow a guru or to be a member of a sect is actually fear and even greed?
Our negativity lives on our back. It is difficult for us to see but we need to explore it. We can easily see the back of another person. Work on seeing and reducing your own negativity.
Liberation or heaven? Hindu religion confuses people with its karma-philosophy!
You have to take responsibility for your life. You can make a change, nobody else can do that for you.
Dharma is not religion. Dharma is the tasks that I want to do from my heart, not something that I have to do because I was born to Hindu parents.
I won’t have a problem with your god if he doesn’t take bribes from praying criminals and doesn’t encourage them by giving them success.
When there is Love, you don't count Faults and Mistakes!
It is wrong if a guru is not only a person to learn from but someone to worship. When people put pictures of the guru onto their altars and pray for them, when followers wash the feet of the guru and then drink the water, when gurus have their statues made and sell them and when scriptures tell people that they can only be liberated if they have a guru.
Atheists have done something that is not very different from what Buddha has done – they formed just another group with a different belief, the belief that there is no god.
