Raksha Bandhan Quotes
"If I could pick the best brother, I would pick you!"

Quotes : Catherine Pulsifer

As we grew up, my brothers acted like they didn't care, but I always knew they looked out for me and were there!

Quotes : Catherine Pulsifer

"A sister is a gift to the heart, a friend to the spirit, a golden thread to the meaning of life."

Quotes : Isadora James

Our brothers and sisters are there with us from the dawn of our personal stories to the inevitable dusk.

Quotes : Susan Scarf Merrell

"Having a sister is like having a best friend you can't get rid of. You know whatever you do, they'll still be there. "

Quotes : Amy Li

Quotations On Hinduism
"Hinduism.....gave itself no name, because it set itself no sectarian limits; it claimed no universal adhesion, asserted no sole infallible dogma, set up no single narrow path or gate of salvation; it was less a creed or cult than a continuously enlarging tradition of the God ward endeavor of the human spirit. An immense many-sided and many staged provision for a spiritual self-building and self-finding, it had some right to speak of itself by the only name it knew, the eternal religion, Santana Dharma...."

Quotes : Sri Aurobindo

"From every sentence (of the Upanishads) deep, original and sublime thoughts arise, and the whole is pervaded by a high and holy and earnest spirit...."In the whole world there is no study so beneficial and so elevating as that of the Upanishads. They are destined sooner or later to become the faith of the people."  
" It has been the solace of my life -- it will be the solace of my death."

Quotes : Arthur Schopenhauer

"In the morning I bathe my intellect in the stupendous and cosmogonal philosophy of the Bhagavad Gita in comparison with which our modern world and its literature seems puny." 

Quotes : Henry David Thoreau

“Bhagvad-Gita is the most beautiful, perhaps the only true philosophical song existing in any known tongue…....perhaps the deepest and loftiest thing the world has to show."

Quotes : Wilhelm von Humboldt

“In the whole world there is no study, except that of the originals, so beneficial and so elevating as that of the Oupnekhat. It has been the solace of my life, it will be the solace of my death!” 

Quotes : Arthur Schopenhauer [said for Upanishads]

“It is sublime as night and a breathless ocean. It contains every religious sentiment, all the grand ethics which visit in turn each noble poetic mind…” 

Quotes : Ralph Waldo Emerson [for Bhagwad Gita]

"The strength of Hinduism lies in its infinite adaptability to the infinite diversity of human character and human tendencies. It has its highly spiritual and abstract side suited to the philosopher, its practical to the man of the world, its aesthetic and ceremonial side attuned to the man of the poetic feeling and imagination; and its quiescent contemplative aspect that has its appeal for the man of peace and the lover of seclusion."

Quotes : Sir Monier Monier-Williams

" I owed a magnificent day to the Bhagavad-Gita. It was as if an empire spoke to us, nothing small or unworthy, but large, serene, consistent, the voice of an old intelligence which in another age and climate had pondered and thus disposed of the same questions which exercise us." 

Quotes : Ralph Waldo Emerson

"The most beautiful, perhaps the only true philosophical song existing in any known tongue ....perhaps the deepest and loftiest thing the world has to show."

Quotes : Wilhelm von Humboldt

" I am convinced that everything has come down to us from the banks of the Ganges, - astronomy, astrology, metempsychosis, etc." 

Quotes : Voltaire

"It may be with truth be asserted that no description of Hinduism can be exhaustive which does not touch on almost every religious and philosophical idea that the world has ever known. It is all-tolerant, all-comprehensive, all-compliant, all-absorbing. It has its spiritual and its material aspect; it’s esoteric and exoteric; it’s subjective and objective; it’s rational and irrational. It has one side for the practical; another for the severely moral; another for the devotional and the imaginative; another for the philosophical and speculative."

Quotes : Sir Monier Monier-Williams

"Land of religions, cradle of human race, birthplace of human speech, grandmother of legend, great grandmother of tradition. The land that all men desire to see and having seen once even by a glimpse, would not give that glimpse for the shows of the rest of the globe combined."

Quotes : Mark Twain

"Perhaps in return for conquest, arrogance and spoliation, India will teach us the tolerance and gentleness of the mature mind, the quiet content of the unacquisitive soul, the calm of the understanding spirit, and a unifying, a pacifying love for all living things."

Quotes : Will Durant

“After a study of some forty years and more of the great religions of the world, I find none so perfect, none so scientific, none so philosophic, and none so spiritual as the great religion known by the name of Hinduism. The more you know it, the more you will love it; the more you try to understand it, the more deeply you will value it”

Quotes : Dr. Annie Besant

Each year, it is necessary to respire, to take breath again, to revive ourselves at the great living sources that forever keep their eternal freshness. Where can we find them if not at the cradle of our race, on the sacred summits from where descend the Indus and the Ganges....?

Quotes : Jules Michelet

"That year will always remain a dear and cherished memory; it was the first time I had the opportunity to read the great sacred poem of India, the divine Ramayana. If anyone has lost the freshness of emotion, let him drink a long draught of life, and youth from that deep chalice."

Quotes : Jules Michelet
