“Self-realization is the knowing – in body, mind, and soul – that we are one with the omnipresence of God; that we do not have to pray that it come to us, that we are not merely near it at all times, but that God’s omnipresence is our omnipresence; that we are just as much a part of Him now as we ever will be. All we have to do is improve our knowing.” :- Yogananda Paramahansa

Nizamuddin Dargah

“Divine bounty does not discriminate between one individual and another. When the sun rises, it gives light and warmth to all people whether living in palaces or in huts. When it rained, the poor and rich alike are benefitted from it. Once, sheikh Mu’inuddin Chishti of Ajmer was asked to explain the highest form of religious devotion which endeared man to God. He said: “Develop river-like generosity, sun like bounty and earth like hospitality”. from Hazrat Nizamuddin Aulia’s post

Every five to seven in the evening the dargah comes to life, especially every Thursday when this place has a fair like atmosphere. On special days like the biennial ‘Urs’ of Hazrat Nizamuddin and Eid people throng here from all over the world to absorb the Sufiana teachings he imparted.

Silences

Silence is a source of great strength. : Lao Tzu 

Never be bullied into silence.  Never allow yourself to be made a victim. Accept no one’s definition of your life; define yourself.; Harvey Fierstein


After silence, that which comes nearest to expressing the inexpressible is music.; Aldous Huxley

                    All other knowledge are only petty and trivial knowledge; the experience of silence alone is the real and perfect knowledge. – Ramana Maharshi
