Paramahansa Yogananda quotes

LIVE QUIETLY IN THE MOMENT AND SEE THE BEAUTY OF ALL BEFORE YOU. THE FUTURE WILL TAKE CARE OF ITSELF.

YOU MAY CONTROL A MAD ELEPHANT;
You may shut the mouth of the bear and the tiger;
Ride the lion and play with the cobra;
By alchemy you may learn your livelihood;

—Paramahansa Yogananda

YOU MAY WANDER THROUGH THE UNIVERSE INCOGNITO;
Make vassals of the gods; be ever youthful;

—Paramahansa Yogananda

YOU MAY WALK IN WATER AND LIVE IN FIRE;
But control of the mind is better and more difficult.

—Paramahansa Yogananda

THERE IS A MAGNET IN YOUR HEART THAT WILL ATTRACT TRUE FRIENDS. THAT MAGNET IS UNSELFISHNESS, THINKING OF OTHERS FIRST; WHEN YOU LEARN TO LIVE FOR OTHERS, THEY WILL LIVE FOR YOU.

—Paramahansa Yogananda

HAVING LOTS OF MONEY WHILE NOT HAVING INNER PEACE IS LIKE DYING OF THIRST WHILE BATHING IN THE OCEAN. YOU MUST NOT LET YOUR LIFE RUN IN THE ORDINARY WAY; DO SOMETHING THAT NOBODY ELSE HAS DONE, SOMETHING THAT WILL DAZZLE THE WORLD. SHOW THAT GOD'S CREATIVE PRINCIPLE WORKS IN YOU.

—Paramahansa Yogananda

IF YOU PERMIT YOUR THOUGHTS TO DWELL ON EVIL YOU YOURSELF WILL BECOME UGLY. LOOK ONLY FOR THE GOOD IN EVERYTHING SO YOU ABSORB THE QUALITY OF BEAUTY.

—Paramahansa Yogananda
