Analyzing the darkness does not give you more light.

Choose your own road if you want to reach your own destination.

Do not wait for your deliverance. You are your own liberation.

Everyone dies, but few truly live.

A giant tree can not grow without its roots.

Let your star shine brightly and carry your most audacious visions.

Life is not a race - Supreme Master Ching Hai.

Life is not something to win but an instant to be...

Make somebody happy today, mind your own business.

Personal power is the art of radiating joy in spite of adversity.

Spirituality is the art of mastering oneself.

The suffering of your soul indicates it's time to change your ways of thinking.

There are signs everywhere to help you find your path.

There is a place inside yourself where you know the truth exist.

There is no road to happiness: happiness is the road.

To be a painter is the only way I knew not to die - (Niska).

To love the other is to want them happy their own way.

Tomorrow will be what our children feel today.

When you no longer fear dying, you can start living.

You are the unique guardian of your soul.

You are the unique light in the infinite to illuminate my soul when the vast darkness rages.

You try to get even but God is odd.

The worse error is no errors at all.

Spiritualy is the art of mastering oneself.

Spiritual Masters, and Niska’s Journey of Light

Niska once considered abandoning painting forever. At a crossroads in his life, Niska questioned
his purpose to paint. Then he encountered a spiritual master, followed by others on his path.

A spiritual leader and humanitarian with more than 300 centers in 60 countries, Sri Chinmoy was remembered after his death by President Nelson Mandela as his “dear friend working for the greater cause of world peace and for his lifetime service to humanity.” Archbishop Desmond Tutu poignantly added, “In a world of suspicion, hostility and conflict, he worked tirelessly to bring the different faiths together.”

Wondering to himself whether he should continue painting, Sri Chinmoy appeared on Niska's path. At first seeing Niska's work, Sri Chinmoy declared, “There is God in these paintings.” He honored Niska at a special ceremony as a World Server of Peace at McGill University, and in New York where Sri Chinmoy served as Director of the Peace Meditation Room at the United Nations.
