The national ideals of India are- Renunciation and Service. Intensify her in those channels, and the rest will take care of itself.
To make a great future India, the whole secret lies in organization, accumulation of power, co-ordination of wills.
As long as touch-me-not-ism is your creed and kitchen pot your Deity, you cannot rise spiritually.
I consider that the great national sin is the neglect of the masses, and that is one of the causes of our downfall. If we want to regenerate India, we must work for them.
It is man-making religion that we want. It is man-making theories that we want. It is man-making education all round that we want. And here is the test of truth- anything that makes you weak physically, intellectually and spiritually reject as poison; there is no life in it, it cannot be true. Truth is strengthening. Truth is purity. Truth is all knowledge.
The world is in need of those whose life is one burning love, selfless. That love will make every word tell like thunderbolt. Awake, awake, great ones I The world is burning with misery. Can you sleep?
