Practical Tests


To train ourselves to endure meekly the little pinpricks of life with magnanimous joy and heat and gold, pain and pleasure, success and failure is itself the highest sadhana.

Swami Chinmayananda

Without practical experience merely repeating words no one can attain salvation. Infact, our condition would be like that of the parrot. Whatever is taught, it memorises it and starts repeating it.

Ashutosh Maharaj

The responsible leader knows and accepts that there is no one above him to who he shall pass the blame or responsibility. He has no hesitation in being the final point where the solutions must be found, decisions must be take and actions must be initiated… by this stand people depend upon him and are prepared to take risk and initiative based on the ultimate support.

G. Narayana

The enemy is the necessary condition for practicing patience. Without an enemy’s action, there is no possibility for patience or tolerance to arise. Our friends do not ordinarily test us and provide opportunity to cultivate patience; only our enemies do this.

Dalai Lama

Life is succession of lessons which must be lived to be understood.


No one over thirty-five is worth meeting who has not something to teach us, – something more than we could learn for ourselves, from a book.

Cyril Connoly

He who has once burnt his mouth always blows the soap.

German proverb
