Wij houden van Bali. Om ontelbare redenen, maar vooral wegens de cultuur en de general spirit van de Balinese mensen. Ze zijn een prachtige reflectie van de hindoecultuur, met haar offers, felgekleurde gewaden, vriendelijkheid en eewenoude wijsheid. Natuurlijk moeten we daar een beetje van delen. En wel in de vorm van mooie quotes. 

1. “The great secret of true success, of true happiness, is this: the man or woman who asks for no return, the perfectly unselfish person, is the most successful.” - Swami Vivekananda -

2. “Only two kinds of people can attain self-knowledge: those who are not encumbered at all with learning, that is to say, whose minds are not over-crowded with thoughts borrowed from others; and those who, after studying all the scriptures and sciences, have come to realise that they know nothing.” - Ramakrishna –

3. “If I were asked to define the Hindu creed, I should simply say: Search after truth through non-violent means. A man may not believe in God and still call himself a Hindu. Hinduism is a relentless pursuit after truth... Hinduism is the religion of truth. Truth is God. Denial of God we have known. Denial of truth we have not known.” - Mahatma Gandhi -

4. “It is only when we have renounced our preoccupation with "I," "me," "mine," that we can truly possess the world in which we live. Everything, provided that we regard nothing as property. And not only is everything ours; it is also everybody else's.” - Aldous Huxley –

5. “Perform all thy actions with mind concentrated on the Divine, renouncing attachment and looking upon success and failure with an equal eye. Spirituality implies equanimity. - The Bhagavad Gita -

6. “Feel nothing, know nothing, do nothing, have nothing, give up all to God, and say utterly, 'Thy will be done'. We only dream this bondage. Wake up and let it go.” - Swami Vivekananda -

7. “The little space within the heart is as great as the vast universe. The heavens and the earth are there, and the sun and the moon and the stars. Fire and lightening and winds are there, and all that now is and all that is not.” - Swami Prabhavananda, the Upanishads -

8. “A quiet mind is all you need.” - Anonymous -
