~ Niels Bohr',

'The supramental Yoga is at once an ascent towards God and a descent of Godhead into the embodied nature.
The ascent can only be achieved by a one-centered all-gathering upward aspiration of the soul and mind and life and body;
the descent can only come by a call of the whole being towards the infinite and the eternal Divine.
If this call and this aspiration are there, or if by any means they can be born and grow constantly and seize all the nature,
then and then only a supramental uplifting and transformation becomes possible.

He will stand in awe and fear from his humble, lowly, and base [nature] when he compares himself to one of the great and holy bodies,
how much more so when comparing himself to the pure forms which are separate from matter and do not share any connection with it.
He will see himself as a vessel full of embarrassment and shame, empty and lacking.
~ Maimonides',

'The guru is the equal of all the buddhas.
To make any connection with him, whether through seeing him, hearing his voice, remembering him or being touched by his hand, will lead us toward liberation.
To have full confidence in him is the sure way to progress toward enlightenment.

One driven mid a trampling hurrying crowd
Hour after hour she trod without release
Holding by her will the senseless meute at bay;

And fixed her thought upon the saviour Name;
Then all grew still and empty; she was free.
