"Self-realization is meant to ensure fulfilment for one’s own self. It is not reaching somewhere or getting at something external, like going to the peak of a mountain. The attainment is in dissolving the mind and intelligence, and getting into the very core of oneself. In other words, it is like multiplying everything with zero."

Swami Bhoomananda Tirtha

“Shift the focus from external situations, to the mind's response to them. Do whatever leads to mind's expansion, strength and transparence.”
“For self-improvement, always try to bring in the transformation at the causal level. Shift the focus from actions to their cause – the thoughts; from the thoughts to their cause – the mind-set (bhaava) giving rise to them. Transform the mind-set or ‘bhaava’ by relentless contemplation on the infinitude and unaffectedness of the Soul.”
- Swami Nirviseshananda Tirtha
