One of My Favorite Quotes

8 Jan

There is no question that Professor Puran Singh has a gift for words, not to mention he is considered one of the greatest spiritual geniuses of his time. Here is just one of the his quotes (among many) that I love:

“Thus, to the Guru’s mind, man is normally and frankly physical, transcending which is he purely intellectual, brilliant, creative, artisitic, aesthetic. Transcending all this intellectual self of his he is mostly intuitional, spiritual. The highest type is he who has body and mind as mere shadows left, using them as mere instruments, tools or energies of his. And he is the one who, above all has the illumined soul with its revolving Universe with the Guru in the centre and shining in him is that wonder-woven starry universe of his own, separate, beautiful subjective world of gods. ….Those who, in their minds, even thing of a greater God than the Guru, do not know what personal passion for the personal God is.” [pg 48]

What are your thoughts on this quote? Any takers? Any quote that you would like to share?

    Great book club meeting the other day! Kudos to both of you for starting this endeavor. Because of the meeting I might get inspired to write on my blog again….which I did, with a quote from Prof P. Singh himself. 🙂
