Favorite Brahman Quotes

1. "Some perceive God in the heart by the intellect through meditation; others by the yoga of knowledge; and others by the yoga of work. Some, however, do not understand Brahman, but having heard from others, take to worship. They also transcend death by their firm faith to what they have heard."
Author: Anonymous
2. "But he, Siddhartha, was not a source of joy for himself, he found no delight in himself. Walking the rosy paths of the fig tree garden, sitting in the bluish shade of the grove of contemplation, washing his limbs daily in the bath of repentance, sacrificing in the dim shade of the mango forest, his gestures of perfect decency, everyone's love and joy, he still lacked all joy in his heart. Dreams and restless thoughts came into his mind, flowing from the water of the river, sparkling from the stars of the night, melting from the beams of the sun, dreams came to him and a restlessness of the soul, fuming from the sacrifices, breathing forth from the verses of the Rig-Veda, being infused into him, drop by drop, from the teachings of the old Brahmans."
Author: Hermann Hesse
3. "You've heard the teachings, oh son of a Brahman, and good for you that you've thought about it thus deeply. You've found a gap in it, an error. You should think about this further. But be warned, oh seeker of knowledge, of the thicket of opinions and of arguing about words. There is nothing to opinions, they may be beautiful or ugly, smart or foolish, everyone can support them or discard them. But the teachings, you've heard from me, are no opinion, and their goal is not to explain the world to those who seek knowledge. They have a different goal; their goal is salvation from suffering. This is what Gotama teaches, nothing else."
Author: Hermann Hesse
4. "The reason why I do not know anything about myself, the reason why Siddhartha has remained alien and unknown to myself is due to one thing, to one single thing--I was afraid of myself, I was fleeing from myself. I was seeking Atman, I was seeking Brahman, I was determined to dismember myself and tear away its layers of husk in order to find in its unknown innermost recess the kernel at the heart of those layers, the Atman, life, the divine principle, the ultimate. But in so doing, I was losing myself."
Author: Hermann Hesse
5. "He sat thus, lost in meditation, thinking Om, his soul as the arrow directed at Brahman."
Author: Hermann Hesse
6. "If Brahman an infinite ocean, then Atma a wave within be,Ocean not different from its waves, the waves as ocean be;They are but one and the same very similar in actuality,So Brahman and Atma are one and the same in reality.960"
Author: Munindra Misra
7. "Lucru de mirare, boierii, marii mosieri, profesorii universitari, ofiterii superiori, episcopii si fostii înalti demnitari s-au dovedit mai putin exigenti asupra igienei decît ciobanii, lucratorii si plugarii, care mai toti au fost - dupa cum singuri spuneau - scîrbosi si gingasi la mîncare si nu încetau de a stabili reguli profilactice mai abitir ca la institutul Pasteur sau norme de folosire a tinetei si de spalare pe mîini mai stricte decît ritualurile tribale ori ale ceremonialului defecarii unui brahman."
Author: Nicolae Steinhardt

Juga sebaliknya, Kakanda. Orang miskin tak berkesan apa-apa pada si kaya, orang dungu terkesan mengibakan pada si bijaksana, orang pengecut terkesan hina pada si gagah berani. Tetapi semua kesan itu salah. Orang harus mengenal mereka lebih dahulu."
Author: Pramoedya Ananta Toer
12. "What Brahman is cannot be described. All things in the world — the Vedas, the Puranas, the Tantras, the six systems of philosophy — have been defiled, like food that has been touched by the tongue, for they have been read or uttered by the tongue. Only one thing has not been defiled in this way, and that is Brahman. No one has ever been able to say what Brahman is."
Author: Ramakrishna
13. "The pure mind is itself Brahman; it therefore follows that Brahman is not other than the mind of the sage."
Author: Ramana Maharshi
14. "Brahma is the Generator, Vishnu the Organizer and Shiva the Destroyer. Together they are G.O.D. or Brahman. All the millions of Hindu gods are just forms of the one Supreme Being."
Author: Sarah Macdonald
15. "No one can say with finality that God is only 'this' and nothing else. He is formless, and again He has forms. For the bhakta He assumes forms. But He is formless for the jnani, that is, for him who looks on the world as a mere dream. The bhakta feels that he is one entity and the world another. Therefore God, reveals Himself to him as a Person. But the jnani — the Vedantist, for instance — always reasons, applying the process of 'Not this, not this'. Through this discrimination he realizes, by his inner perception, that the ego and the universe are both illusory, like a dream. Then the jnani realizes Brahman in his own consciousness. He cannot describe what Brahman is."
Author: Sri Ramakrishna
16. "Brahman and I are buddies."
Author: Stephen Beam
17. "O Brahmana, it is just like a mountain river, flowing far and swift, taking everything along with it; there is no moment, no instant, no second when it stops flowing, but goes on flowing and continuing. So Brahmana, is human life, like a mountain river." As Buddha told Ratthpala : "The world is a continuous flux and is impermanent."
Author: Walpola Ruhula
