Inspiring and beautiful Hindu Quotes

Hindus all over the world, not only enlightened from the Vedas, the Upanishads, the Bhagavad Gita or other Hindu books, but also inspired by many wise people, both born as Hindus, as well as those who are not Hindus. All have been recorded in a variety of words that are often quoted by many people around the world.

Every era of a civilization of mankind, there must be a word or words that can inspire a community or state. A variety of beautiful words, which are usually spoken of someone wise or written on a holy book is often the grip of a person or people in thinking, saying and doing things. Hindus also since antiquity have been taught to think before saying something, especially before doing something that will have an impact for oneself and others.

On this occasion, I wanted to share a variety of quotations related to Hinduism, both of which already exist in the scriptures or have ever written or said by the wise, and some have been said by people who are not Hindus, but they admire Hinduism as a universal doctrine. Hopefully what is written below can inspire us all, for a better life.

Don’t worry about people stealing your ideas. If your ideas are any good, you’ll have to ram them down people’s throats.  Lord Rama

"The Vedas teach that the soul is divine, only held in the bondage of matter; perfection will be reached when this bond will burst, and the word they use for it is, therefore, Mukti - freedom, freedom from the bonds of imperfection, freedom from death and misery." Hinduism - By Swami Vivekananda chapter: A Universal Religion p. 3)

Through humor, you can soften some of the worst blows that life delivers. And once you find laughter, no matter how painful your situation might be, you can survive it.  Lord Krishna

That which we call the Hindu religion is really the Eternal religion because it embraces all others. Sri Aurobindo

Courage is the discovery that you may not win, and trying when you know you can lose. Lord Krishna

You must not lose faith in humanity. Humanity is an ocean; if a few drops of the ocean are dirty, the ocean does not become dirty. Mahatma Gandhi

I laugh, I love, I hope, I try, I hurt, I need, I fear, I cry. And I know you do the same things too, So we’re really not that different, me and you. Lord Rama

The human body is the temple of God. One who kindles the light of awareness within gets true light. The sacred flame of your inner shrine is constantly bright. The experience of unity is the fulfillment of human endeavors. The mysteries of life are revealed. (Rig Veda)

The whole mantram AUM
Indivisible, interdependent, Goes on reverberating in the mind. Established in this cosmic vibration, The sage goes beyond fear, decay, and death To enter into infinite peace. (Prashna Upanishad)

In my own spiritual journey, I became a swami on the Hindu path of Bhakti. In the Hindu tradition, a swami is a monk who forgoes regular family life for the purpose of making the whole world his family and channels his full energy into spiritual practice, devotion to God and service to humanity. Radhanath Swami

In many traditions, the world was sung into being: Aboriginal Australians believe their ancestors did so. In Hindu and Buddhist thought, Om was the seed syllable that created the world. Jay Griffiths

We can't equate democracy with Christianity because the largest democracy on earth is India, which is primarily Hindu. The third largest democracy is Indonesia, which is Islamic. Democracy and freedom are not dependent on Christian beliefs. Jimmy Carter, former US President.

“The great secret of true success, of true happiness, is this: the man or woman who asks for no return, the perfectly unselfish person, is the most successful.” Swami Vivekananda

Do not spoil what you have by desiring what you have not; remember that what you now have was once among the things you only hoped for.  Lord Krishna

Happiness is when what you think, what you say, and what you do are in harmony. Mahatma Gandhi

I don't believe there's anything in life you can't go back and fix. The ancient Vedas - the oldest Hindu philosophy - and modern science agree that time is an illusion. If that's true, there's no such thing as a past or a future - it's all one huge now. So what you fix now affects the past and the future. Alan Arkin
