People are often unreasonable, illogical and self-centered;

Forgive them Anyway


If you are kind, people may accuse you of being selfish and having ulterior motives;

Be kind Anyway


If you are successful, you will win some false friends and some true enemies;

Succeed Anyway


If you are honest and frank, people may cheat you;

Be honest and frank Anyway


What you spend years building, someone may try to destroy it overnight;

Build Anyway


If you find serenity and happiness, some may be jealous;

Be happy Anyway


The good you do today, people will often forget tomorrow;

Do good Anyway


Give the world the best you have, and it may never be enough;

Give the world the best you have Anyway


You see, in the final analysis, it’s between you and God;

It was never between you and anyone else Anyway

Appearances Can Be Deceptive…

How our ego, with preconceived notions, sometimes misjudges a person… A lady in a faded grey dress and her husband, dressed in a homespun suit walked in timidly without an appointment into the Harvard University President’s outer office. The Secretary could tell in a moment that such backwoods, and country hicks had no business at […]


Ponder Over These…

There are two things that pierce the human heart: Moments we wish would last forever. Moments we wish had never begun.  Today’s life is only for today. Enjoy every moment because even today’s newspaper will become tomorrow’s waste paper. Having a sharp memory is a good quality of the brain. But the ability to forget […]


Modern Commandments to Live By…

We need to reflect and understand the deeper meaning of these statements and follow them in our lives at all times. 1) A mistake that makes us humble is better than an achievement that makes us arrogant. 2) A blind person asked Swami Vivekananda: “Can there be anything worse than losing eye sight?” He replied: “Yes, […]

    I feel grateful for being exposed to this knowledge and wisdom in my life which coaxes me to think positively and be kind to others.
    Truly life becomes wonderful when we apply this elusive concept of empathy in it.
    Thank you for sharing with us these little secrets of true happiness.

    Such wise words as: in the final analysis it ‘s between you and God anyway,and never between you and any one else- hits hard.If only we had the wisdom to know every moment, everything and everyone is God. Thanks Guruji for triggering high thinking and low living.

    Hari Aum!

    This article is nice. I also agree with the teachings of the article “Anyway”, but there are many people in this world who need to learn and practise these teachings. Otherwise these people will always be prone to uncivilized behavior. (This is my opinion.)
    Swami-ji your blessings are always with me and my family.
