Truth is the right designation of God.
Truth and nonviolence will never be destroyed.
Truth is like a vast tree which yields more and more fruit the more you nurture it.
Truth alone will endure, all the rest will be swept away before the tide of time.
Truth and untruth often con-exist; good and evil often are found together.
Truth is self-evident, nonviolence is its maturest fruit, it is contained in Truth, but is not self-evident.
Every truth is self-acting and possesses inherent strength.
Truth, which is permanent, eludes the historian of events. Truth transcends history.
Truth and nonviolence demand that no human being may debar himself from serving any other human being, no matter how sinful he may be.
Truth is the first to be sought for, and Beauty and Goodness will then be added unto you.
An error does not become truth by reason of multiplied propagation, nor does truth become error because nobody sees it.
Truth without humility would be an arrogant caricature.
The quest of truth involves self-suffering, sometimes even up to death.
Use truth as your anvil, nonviolence as your hammer and anything that does not stand the test when it is brought to the anvil of truth and hammered with nonviolence, reject it.
Call to Action:
- Violence comes in many forms. Look at your life where you use thoughts, words or actions that instill violence. Let this go. Be Love.
- Write down the characteristics of your ideal self. How do you treat others? How do you treat yourself? What are your thoughts, words and actions throughout the day? Do you lead? Do you inspire? Be this person.
