                                                 May Brahma, (the Divine One),
                             Pluck the strings of your inner soul with His celestial fingers,
                                               And feel His own presence within.
                                                  Bless us with a divine voice
                                    That we may tune the harp-strings of our life
                                               To sing songs of Love to you.”

                                                  (Chandogya Upanishad)

                                                 “Meditating on the lotus of your heart,
                                                       in the center is the untainted;
                                             the exquisitely pure, clear, and sorrowless;
                                                               the inconceivable;
                                                              the unmanifest,
                                                              of infinite form;
                                                     blissful, tranquil, immortal;
                                                       the womb of Brahma.”

                                              “Those in whose hearts OM reverberates
                                                    Unceasingly are indeed blessed
                                               And deeply loved as one who is the Self.
                                                   The all-knowing Self was never born,
                                                Nor will it die. Beyond cause and effect,
                                                    This Self is eternal and immutable.
                                             When the body dies, the Self does not die.”
                                                             (Katha Upanishad)

                                                        “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)

                                                                 “O Almighty!
                                       You are the infinite; the universe is also infinite!
                                              From infinite the infinite has come out!
                                Having taken infinite out of the infinite, the infinite remains!
                                O Almighty! May there be Peace! Peace! Everywhere!”
                                                         (Ishawashya Upanishad)

        “Meditating on the lotus of your heart, in the center is the untainted; the exquisitely pure,
        clear, and sorrowless; the inconceivable; the unmanifest, of infinite form; blissful, tranquil,                                                    immortal; the womb of Brahma.”

                “O seeker, know the true nature of your soul, and identify yourself with it completely.
                     O Lord, (may we attain) the everlasting consciousness of Supreme Light and Joy.
                               May we resolve to dedicate our life to the service of humankind,
                                                        And uplift them to Divinity.”
                                                                (Yajur Veda)
                                           “O Brahma, lead us from the unreal to the real.
                                              O Brahma, lead us from darkness to light.  
                                             O Brahma, lead us from death to immortality…
                                                        Shanti, Shanti, Shanti, Om.”
                                                       (Brhadaranyaka Upanishad)
           “Look to this day, for it is life, the very breath of life. In its brief course lie all the realities
            of your existence; the bliss of growth, the glory of action, the splendor of beauty. For
           yesterday is only a dream, and tomorrow is but a vision. But today, well lived, makes every            yesterday a dream of happiness, and every tomorrow a vision of hope. Look well, therefore,                                                               to this day.” 
                                                           (Ancient Sanskrit)

       “The highest Self, all endless bliss, the unconditioned limitless consciousness, being realized,           whether through the great texts, or through Yoga, in all experience whatever—let one lose              himself in the ecstasy of Realization, for he has forever lost all touch with bondage of every                                                                           description.”

                                                                  “This ritual is One.
                                                                    This food is One.
                                                       We who offer the food are One.
                                                             The fire of hunger is One.
                                                                    All action is One. 
                                                        We who understand this are One.”
                                                             (Ancient Hindu Blessing)

       “A particle of Its bliss supplies the bliss of the whole universe. Everything becomes
         enlightened in Its light. All else appears worthless after a sight of that essence. I am indeed
                                          of this Supreme Eternal Self.” 

        “The knower catches in the ecstasy of his heart the full light of that Brahman (that Divine
          Essence) which is indescribable—all pure bliss, incomparable, transcending time, ever free,
                                                                     beyond desire.”

                                            "Bright but hidden, the Self dwells in the heart.
                                         Everything that moves, breathes, opens, and closes
                                                  Lives in the Self. He is the source of love
                                       And may be known through love but not through thought
                                                       He is the goal of life. Attain this goal!"
                                                                   (Mundaka Upanishad)

                                                     “All is change in the world of the senses,
                                                   But changeless is the supreme Lord of Love.
                                                        Meditate on him, be absorbed by him,
                                                      Wake up from this dream of separateness.”
                                                                  (Shvetashvatara Upanishad)

                                                       “O mysterious and incomprehensible Spirit!
                                    “In the depths of my heart, there is only You—You, for all time.”
                                                                             (source unknown)
