A good deed is sweeter to the heart than a sweet in the mouth.
A day spent without doing a good deed is a day without a soul.
One should keep goodwill and love constantly in his heart and let them pour out upon all with tranquillity and with equanimity.


Generosity gives and gives itself without bargaining.
Generosity is to find one’s own satisfaction in the satisfaction of others.
Generosity in the vital gives itself unstintingly.
Psychic generosity gives for the joy of giving.
I want to speak of moral generosity. To feel happy, for example, when a comrade is successful. An act of courage, of unselfishness, a fine sacrifice have a beauty in them which gives you joy. It may be said that moral generosity consists in being able to recognise the true worth and superiority of others.

Envy, Jealousy & Pride

Jealousy comes from a narrowness of the mind and a weakness of the heart. It is a great pity that so many are attacked by it.
Jealousy and envy are things common to human nature, but these are the very things that a sadhak ought to throw out of himself. Otherwise why is he a sadhak at all? He is supposed to be here for seeking the Divine—but in the seeking for the Divine, jealousy, envy, anger, etc. have no place. They are movements of the ego and can only create obstacles to the union with the Divine.
It is much better to remember that one is seeking for the Divine and make that the whole governing idea and aim of the life. It is that which pleases the Mother more than anything else; these jealousies and envies and competitions for her favour can only displease and distress her.
