Top 10 Quotes on God and Religions By Indian Vedanti- Swamy Vivekananda

  • You cannot believe in God until you believe in yourself.

  • Religion is being and becoming and religion is the manifestation of the Divinity already in man. To be good and to good is the whole of religion.

  • The old religions said that he was an atheist who did not believe in God while the new religion says that he is an atheist who does not believe in himself.
  • Man is to become divine by realizing the divine and idols or temples, or churches or books are only the supports to help man in his spiritual childhood.
  • God is present in every “Jiva”/living being and there is no other God besides that and he who serves ‘Jiva’ serves God indeed. The moment I have realized God sitting in the temple of every human body, the moment I stand in reverence before every human being and see God in him – that moment I am free from bondage, everything that binds vanishes, and I am free. Where can we go to find God if we cannot see Him in our own hearts and in every living being?
  • As different streams having different sources all mingle their waters in the sea, so different tendencies/religions, various though they may  appear, crooked or straight, all lead to God. May He who is the Brahman of the Hindus, the Ahura-Mazda of the Zoroastrians, the Buddha of the Buddhists, the Jehovah of the Jews, the Father in Heaven of the Christians give strength to you to carry out your noble idea. The greatest religion is to be true to your own nature. Have faith in yourselves.
  • All that is real in me is God and all that is real in God is I and the gulf between God and me is thus bridged. Thus by knowing God, we find that the kingdom of heaven is within us.
  • God is to be worshiped as the one beloved, dearer than everything in this and next life.
  • God is merciful to those whom He sees struggling heart and soul for realization. But if you remain idle, without any struggle  you will see that God’s grace will never come.
  • God gave me nothing which I wanted and God  gave me everything I Needed:

    When I Asked God for Strength, He Gave me difficult situations to face.

    When I Asked God for Brain and Wisdom,He gave Me ‘Puzzles’ in life to Solve.

    When I Asked God for happiness, He showed me some unhappy people.
    When I Asked God for wealth, He showed me how to work hard.
    When I Asked God for favors,He Showed me opportunities to work hard,
    When I Asked God for peace, He Showed me how to help others and

    So God did not give me everything that I wanted, but God gave me everything I needed.

    -Swamy Vivekananda
