Quote: Let my Soul Smile



Quotes by P.Yogananda


“Let my soul smile through my heart
and my heart smile through my eyes,

that I may scatter rich smiles in sad hearts.”


“Many people excuse their own faults
but judge other persons harshly.

We should reverse this attitude
by excusing others’ shortcomings and by harshly examining our own.”


“There is a magnet in your heart that will attract true friends.
That magnet is unselfishness, thinking of others first.
When you learn to live for others, they will live for you.”

Yogananda on Sleeping

Quotes by Yogananda

‘To meditate truly is to concentrate solely on spirit. This is esoteric meditation. It is the highest form of activity that man can perform, and it is the most balanced way to find GOD.’

‘Every day undertake something that is difficult for you and try to do it. Though you fail 5 times, keep on, and as soon as you have succeeded in that direction, apply your concentrated will on something else. You will thus be able to accomplish increasingly greater things. Will is the instrument of the image of God within you.’

‘HE who is persistent will realize God. So try your best to make meditation a regular experience in your life.’

‘TO be able to concentrate is essential for spiritual progress; without concentration you shall never find God. Learn how to shut out of your consciousness all sounds and other earthly distractions.’

Quotes from Paramahansa Yogananda



"Affirm divine calmness and peace, and send out only thoughts of love and goodwill if you want to live in peace and harmony. Never get angry, for anger poisons your system. Try to understand people who cross you, and whenever anybody tries to inflame you, mentally say: “I am too comfortable to be angry. I don’t want to be sick with anger.”

Paramahansa Yogananda,

Quotes from Inner peace




"To be calmly active and actively calm – a Prince of Peace sitting on the throne of poise, directing the kingdom of activity – is to be spiritually healthy. Too much activity – is to be spiritually healthy. Too much activitiy makes one an automation and too much calmness makes one lazy and impractical. Peace is the enjoyment of life; activity is the expression of life. A balance between the activity of the West and the calmness of the East is needed."


"As you find your soul-reservoir of peace, less and less controversy will be able to afflict your life."


"If your husband or wife gets angry and rouses your ire, take a little walk and cool off before responding. If he or she speaks sharply, don’t retort in the same way. It is better to remain quite until the temper has cooled down…."

"Never let anyone rob you of your peace; and don not steal away the peace of others by your verbal misbehavior…
