Quotable Quotes & Wise Sayings
Mysticism is an important part of all world religions. Without this,
God would be only a philosophical concept for intellectual discussions. God is
love and the devotee wants to feel the love of God and His mystic embrace. God
is beautiful and the devotees want to adore Him, worship Him, praise Him and
offer all that is best in him to God. God is Merciful and appears to His
devotees in the form of Avtars and Saints to show His compassion. God comes in
these forms to sustain the world, to destroy evil and to uphold righteousness.
Saints are salt of the
Earth. It is by the prayer of a whole society that a saint is sent to this world
to show mankind the path of Mukti (Liberation). Usually he will take birth in a

discourses and songs and literature which He leaves for posterity become
Blessed is the land and
the parents that give birth to Saints. Time and again God sends His messengers
to flood the world with devotion, dispassion and compassion. They are the source
of Divine life and it is they who sustain the world.

singing tide of their devotion redirect the course of humanity.

the Guru; No one is above the Guru! Nothing surpasses the Guru; None is greater

creed, color and country. They belong to God and their approach is Universal.
Their lives are examples for all of us in leading a Divine life of Universal
love and service to God through humanity.

Of Three Syllabic 'OM' and
ruminate over it in Divine ecstacy.
