Who I Am Makes A difference!!!

"For every human there is a quest to find the answer to why I am here, who am I, 

where did I come from, where am I going.  For me that became the most 

important thing in my life.  Everything else is secondary."


"Here everybody is vibrating on a material level, which is nowhere.  Over there 

[India], they have this great feeling of something else that's just spiritual going 

on. “

Man’s cradle land

"Man must have an original cradle land whence the peopling of the earth was brought about by migration. 


As to man’s cradle land, there have been many theories but the weight of evidence is in favour of Indo-Malaysia.”


"If there is a country on earth which can justly claim the honour of having been the cradle of the Human race or at least the scene of primitive civilization, the successive developments of which carried into all parts of the ancient world and even beyond, the blessings of knowledge which is the second life of man, that country is assuredly India.“

"India, what can it teach us?, by Professor Max Muller!!!

Professor Max Muller,

(1823-1900):

"India, what can it teach us?,


"If I were to look over the whole world to find out the country most richly endowed with all the wealth, power and beauty that nature can bestow, in some parts a very paradise on earth,

I should point to India.


If I were asked under what sky the human mind has most developed some of it choicest gifts, has most deeply pondered on the greatest problems of life and has found solutions of some of them which will deserve the attention even of those who have studied Plato and Kant,

I should point to India.


And if I were to ask myself from what literature we, here in Europe, who have been nurtured most exclusively on the thoughts of the Greeks and Romans and of the Semitic race and the Jewish may draw that corrective which is most wanted in order to make our inner life more comprehensive, more universal, in fact a more truly human life, again,

I should point to India". 

“This is India! by Mark Twain, American Author !!

Mark Twain,  American Author (1835-1920):

“This is India!

The land of dreams and romance,

of fabulous wealth and fabulous poverty,

of splendour and rags, of palaces and hovels,

of famine and pestilence,

of genii and giants and Aladdin lamps,

of tigers and elephants, the cobra and the jungle,

 the country of a hundred nations and a hundred tongues,

 of a thousand religions and two million gods,

cradle of the human race, birthplace of human speech,

 mother of history, grandmother of legend, great-grandmother of tradition, whose yesterdays bear date with the mouldering antiquities of the rest of the nations – the one sole country under the sun that is endowed with an imperishable interest for alien persons,

for lettered and ignorant, wise and fool, rich and poor,

bond and free, the one land that all men desire to see,

and having seen once, by even a glimpse,

would not give that glimpse for all the shows of all the rest of the globe combined. Even now, after a lapse of a year, the delirium of those days in Bombay has not left me and I hope it never will.”

Great words for India by Will Durant!!!

Will Durant,

American historian,

(1885-1981): 

"India was the motherland of our race,

and Sanskrit the mother of Europe's languages;

she was the mother of our philosophy;

mother, through the Arabs, of much of our mathematics;

mother, through the Buddha, of the ideals embodied in Christianity; mother, through the village community, of self-government and democracy.

Mother India is in many ways the mother of us all".

“Perhaps in return for conquest, arrogance and spoliation, India will teach us

the tolerance and gentleness of the mature mind,

the quiet content of the unacquisitive soul,

the calm of the understanding spirit,

and a unifying, a pacifying love for all living things.”

Real words by Albert Einstein !!!

Albert Einstein

(1879 -1955):

“When I read the Bhagavad-Gita and reflect about how God created this universe everything else seems so superfluous.”

"We owe a lot to the Indians, who taught us how to count, without which no worthwhile scientific discovery could have been made.“

Great words from Great person!!!

Victor Cousin,

French Philosopher

(1792-1867):

"When we read the poetical and philosophical monuments of the East –

above all, those of India,

which are beginning to spread in Europe –

we discover there many a truth,

and truths so profound,

and which make such a contrast with the meanness of the results at which European genius has sometimes stopped,

that we are constrained to bend the knee before the philosophy of the East,

and to see in this cradle of the human race the native land of the highest philosophy.“

Great words from Great person !!!

J. Robert Oppenheimer,

American nuclear physicist

(1904-1967):


"If the radiance of a thousand suns were to burst into the sky, that would be like the splendour of the Mighty One. . . . Now I am become death, the destroyer of worlds.“


Oppenheimer "the father of the atomic bomb" quoting from the Hindu scripture Bhagavad-Gita upon witnessing the mushroom cloud resulting from the detonation of the world’s first atomic bomb in New Mexico, U.S.A., on July 16, 1945.


“Access to the Vedas is the greatest privilege this century may claim over all previous centuries. “
