Noble Thoughts

"May noble thoughts come
 to us from every side..."
(Rig Veda 1.89.1)

This page will provide a weekly quote, story, or anecdote from Hindu scriptures to help keep the human body and mind together, to face the life's struggles and help the indwelling spirit (Atman) to dive deep into the depths of its own being.

This week's Quote:

“All this, whatsoever moves in this moving universe, is permeated and inhabited by God, enveloped by God. Therefore, you should enjoy (the world), only by first renouncing and disowning (the things of the world). Do not covet; whose indeed are (these) treasures (in the universe)?...In darkness are they who worship only the world. In greater darkness are they who worship the Infinite alone. Those who accept both (seen in relationship), save themselves from death by the knowledge of the former and attain immortality by the knowledge of the latter…And one who sees all beings in his own Self and his own Self in all beings, no more loathes and hates."  Isha Upanishad 1,6, 9-11“All this, whatsoever moves in this moving universe, is permeated and inhabited by God, enveloped by God.
