There are so many moments in life when Swami Chinmayananda's short but powerful messages come as a wake up call to the seeker. Here's listing my top 10, in no particular order.
Detach and Attach. - ‘Detach’ from the lower and ‘attach’ to the Higher.
Be Raja outside, Ram inside. - Reminds one to be dynamic in the transactional world, but composed and centred in the inner world.
Not doing what you feel like doing is freedom. - Underlines the distinction between freedom and licentiousness.
Keep smiling… all falls are a rise in the Total. - Motivates one to persevere on the spiritual path.
Regularity is the secret of success. - To keep at a task even if the progress seems negligible in the short run.
Mind at rest is a temple of joy. - There is immense happiness in silencing the mind.
If I rest, I rust! - Do not give in to lethargy. Act with inspiration.
Know what to do and do it Yourself. - Be decisive and fiercely independent.
To love and to be loved is the greatest happiness. - Love is the means and end, it is also its own reward.
Be aggressively good! - Like Sri Rama and all our heroes, act with dynamism.
