But mark you,if you give up that spirituality, leaving it aside to go after the materializing civilization of the west,the result will be that in three generation you will be an extinct race; because the back-done of the nation will be broken, the foundation upon which the national edifice has been built will be undermined, and the result will be annihilation all round.

Europe,the center of the manifestation of material energy, will crumble into dust within fifty years,if she is not mindful to change her position,to shift her ground and make spirituality the basis of her. And what will save Europe is the religion of the Upanishads.

Our aristocratic ancestors went on trading the common masses of our country under foot, till they became helpless,till under this torment the poor, poor people nearly forgot that they were human beings. They have been compelled to be merely hewers of wood and drawers of water for centuries, so much so,that they are made to believe that they are born as slaves, born as hewers of wood and drawers of water.

The truths of the Upanishads are before you. Take them up, live up to them, and the salvation of India will be at hand.

Do you feel? Do you feel that millions and millions of the descendants of gods and of sages have become next-door neighbors to brutes? Do you feel that millions are starving today,and millions have been starving for ages? Do you feel that ignorance has come over the land as a dark cloud? Does it make you restless? Does it make you sleepless? Has it gone into your blood,coursing through your veins,becoming consonant with your heartbeats? Has it made you almost mad? Are you seized with that one idea of the misery of ruin, and have you forgotten all about your name, your fame, your wives, your children, your property, even your own bodies? Have you done that? That is the first step to become a patriot,the very first step.

We must have a hold on the spiritual and secular educations of the nations. Do you understand that... The education that you are getting now has some good points, but it has a tremendous disadvantage which is so great that the good things are all weighed down. In the first place it is not a man-making education. It is merely and entirely a negative educations. A negative education or any training that is based on negation, is worse than death.

I consider that the great national sin is the neglect of the masses, and that is one of the causes of our downfall. No amount of politics would be of any avail until the masses in India are once more well educated, well fed, and well cared for.

Keep the motto before you: "Elevation of the masses without injuring their religion."

Education, education, education alone! Travelling through many cities of Europe and observing in them the comforts and educations of even the poor people,there was brought to my mind the state of our own poor people' and I used to shed tears.What made the difference ? Education was the answer I got. Through education comes faith in one's own self, and through faith in one's own self the inherent Brahman is waking up in them. While the Brahman in us is gradually becoming dormant.

Ye are the Children of God, the sharers of immortal bliss, holy and perfect beings. Ye divinities on earth-sinners ? It is a sine to call a man so; it is a standing libel on human nature. Come up, O lions, and shake off the delusion that you are sheep; you are souls immortal, spirits free, blest and eternal; ye are not matter, ye are not bodies; matter is your servant, not you the servant of matter.

Faith, faith, faith in ourselves, faith in god-this is the secret of greatness. If you have faith in the three hundred and thirty millions of your mythological gods, and in all the gods which foreigners have introduced into your midst, and still have no faith in yourselves and stand upon that faith and be strong,

To succeed, you must have tremendous perseverance, tremendous will. " I will drink the ocean" says the persevering soul; "at my will mountains will crumble up." Have that sort of energy, that sort of will; work hard, and you will reach the goal.

This is the great fact: strength is life, weakness is death. Strength is felicity, life eternal, immortal; weakness is constant strain and misery weakness is death.

The world requires a few hundred bold men and women. Practice that boldness which dares know the Truth, which dares show the Truth in life, which does not quake before death, nay, welcomes death, makes a man know that he is the Spirit, that in the whole universe, nothing can kill him. Then you will be free.

Meditation is the "one things. Meditate! The greatest thing is meditation.It is the nearest approach to spiritual life - the mind meditating.It is the one moment in our daily life that we are not at all material-the soul thinking of itself, free from all matter - this marvelous touch of the soul.

Those who give themselves up to the Lord do more for the world than all the so-called workers.One man who has purified himself thoroughly, accomplishes more than a regiment of preachers. Out of purity and silence comes the word of power.

This life is a great chance. What, seekest thou the pleasures of the world ? He is the fountain of all bliss. Seek for the Highest, aim at that Highest, and you shall reach the Highest.

Each soul is potentially divine. The goal is manifest this Divinity within, by controlling nature, external and internal. Do this either by work,or worship,or psychic control, or philosophy - by one, or more, or all of these and be free. This is the whole of religion. Doctrines,or dogmas, or rituals, or books, or temple, or forms, are but secondary details.

If there is a God, we must see Him; If there is a soul, we must perceive it; otherwise it is better not to believe. It is better to be an outspoken atheist than a hypocrite

Practice is absolutely necessary. You may sit down and listen to me by the hour every day, but if you do not practice, you will not get one step further. It all depends on practice. We never understand these things until we experience them. We will have to see and feel them for ourselves. Simply listening to explanations and theories will not do.

Take up one idea. Make that one idea your life; think of it; dream of it; live on that idea. Let the brains, muscles, nerves, every part of your body be full of that idea, and just leave every other idea alone. This is the way to success, and this is the way great spiritual giants are produced.

These prophets were not unique; they were men as you or I. They were great Yogis.They had gained this superconsciousness, and you and I can get the same. They were not peculiar people. The very fact that one man ever reached that state proves that it is possible for every man to do so. Not only is it possible,but every man must, eventually, get to that state, and that is religion.

The embodiment of freedom,the master of nature, is what we call God.You cannot deny Him. No, because you cannot move or live without the idea of freedom.

To many, Indian thought,Indian manners,Indian customs,Indian philosophy,Indian literature,are repulsive at the first sight; but let them persevere,let them read, let them become familiar with the great principles underlying these ideas,and it is ninety-nine to one that the charm will come over them, and fascination will be the result.

But the Older I grow, the better I seem to think of these time honored institution of India. There was a time when I used to think that many of them were useless and worthless; but the older I grow, the more I seem to feel a diffidence in cursing anyone of them,for each of them is the embodiment of the experience of centuries.

Believe me, there is much talking in other lands, but the practical man of religion, who has carried it into his life is here and here alone.

I have said that we have yet something to teach to the world. This is the very reasons, the raison d'etre,that this nation has lived on,in spite of hundreds of year of persecution,in spite of nearly a thousand years of foreign rule and foreign oppression.This nation still lives; the raison d'etre is , it still holds to God, to the treasure-house of religion and spirituality.

In this land are,still religion and spirituality,the fountains which will have to overflow and flood the world to bring in new life and new vitality to the Western and other nations,which are now almost borne down, half-killed,and degraded by political ambitions and social scheming.
