SCHOPENHAUER

 

Schopenhauer in his Parerga 11 and 185 :

“How thoroughly does the Upanishad breathe the holy spirit of the Vedas and how does every one, who by diligent perusal has familiarized himself with the Persian – Latin of this incomparable book, feel himself stirred to his innermost by that spirit. Oh! How the mind is here washed clean of all its early ingrafted Jewish superstition and all philosophy servile to that superstition! It is the most profitable and the most elevating reading which (the original text excepted) is profitable in the world. It has been the consolation of my life and well be the consolation of my death.”

To Strengthen Memory

 

Live in God, not only the known past, but even the unknown past or future will begin to flash in your mind.

Infinite Luck

 

No houses, no home

In rays we roam

United together

Birds of the same feather

No care, no pain,

No loss, no gain,

No fraud, no fear,

No debt, ‘tis clear,

No bondage, tie

No fire, no fry

No book to read

To sow no seed,

No plough to till,

No barn to fill,

No tax to pay,

No toll to lay,

No sheep to rear

No laws to fear,

O free we wander,

Here, there and yonder!

No aim, no game,

No name, no fame,

Love-lorn lunatics,

Wandering fanatics,

With wonder struck,

By Infinite luck.

Hegel Saying

The whole history of religion since the beginning the Christian era combines to show that Christianity is a religion which can make men good only if they are good already. – Hegel

Live with Truth

ORGANISATION

 

Your league shoule be with Truth alone. Even if you are obliged to stand alone, live with Truth, die in Truth.If on the eternal hights of Truth living thou art left alone, the Righteousness should be companion enough for you. Comrades will beging to pour in by taking the living suggestion from you. That organisation will be natural. Don’t run after organising.

I do not want to produce any converts. I simply live the Truth.

Truth requires no defence and defenders. Does the sunlight require any apostles and messengers?

I do not spread the truth, the Truth spreads through me.

If the people of India all forsake me, what are I. I am the Truth.

From Notebook 9
