Complete peace

“Wisdom is a thing that gives you, first of all, complete peace. If your wisdom is developed, then you become very peaceful because whatever people may say, whatever they may do, whatever aggression they may do, whatever it is, you are peaceful and you see the stupidity of the other person, of the other nations and you understand why they are doing it.”
~ 1998

How you take to the good side

“Wisdom doesn’t mean that you know how to argue things or you fight with people. No, it doesn’t mean that. Wisdom means how you take to the good side of everything to enjoy it. This is wisdom and that you avoid all destructive things and take to something constructive.”
~ 1992

You do not change

“Wisdom plays such a part in life that whatever may happen outside, whatever may be the trend, whatever may be the fashion, whatever may be the people are all changing into, you do not change. You change within.”
~ 1991

Meditation is the only way

“Meditation is the only way. You give up your left and you give up your right and you are just standing in the centre, enjoying the wisdom, enjoying the joy of your being.”
~ 1991

Not just an assumption

“The wisdom is the thing which really is not just an assumption that I am very wise and all that, but it asserts, it works out and it shows what is good and what is bad.”
~ 2002

Through experience

“Wisdom comes to you automatically. But through experience, then you know this is the right path. Through experience you start understanding.”
~ 2002

If there is no wisdom

“If there is no wisdom, we can never understand what we are doing.”
~ 1998

Very lucky people

“Those people who have got wisdom are very lucky people, but wisdom comes from no source but your own understanding of life. When a person starts thinking, “Why am I doing such and such thing? What is the effect of my doing? What is the result of my behavior? Is it good for me or bad for me?” then wisdom comes.”
~ 1993

Complete power

“A person is wise who does not only know what is right and wrong, but also he knows very well his own power not to do something wrong. He just does not do it. Wisdom is a complete power within ourselves by which we try nothing. It just spontaneously works through us and we do things, which are proper and right.”
~ 1993

Your innocence itself

“Your innocence itself is a power and our innocence will definitely give you that wisdom by which you can solve all the problems without any difficulty.”
~ 1990

Can you imagine?

“Wisdom means that it gives you detachment, detachment from all that is selfishness, self-centeredness, self-obsession, and ego – all connected with self. Can you imagine?”
~ 1991

Through our maturity

“We have to understand that our wisdom is not something that could be inculcated. It cannot be something that can be maneuvered. It is something very innate and it comes through our maturity.”
~ 1991

It has no fear

“Your spirit cannot have a problem. It has no fear. But above all, it has wisdom, tremendous wisdom. And that wisdom is the one sign of you being a very higher personality. As I told you, this is evolution. And when you are transformed, you are evolved. Of a very different nature you become. And you are to stand out.”
~ 2002

It’s not a violent nature

“If you really know yourself, you’ll have such powers of courage. You’ll not be a daredevil, but with wisdom. Courage with wisdom, you will have. And that is what is your self, which will give you lots of wisdom and lots of courage. It’s not a fighting spirit. It’s not a violent nature. It’s not a crude nature, but it’s a very silent, beautiful, courageous attitude.”
