INDIA IS NOT JUST A PLACE.
India is not just a people.
India is the celestial music,
And inside that music
Anybody from any corner of the globe
Can find the real significance of life.
"Spirituality is the master key of the
Indian mind. It is this dominant inclination of India which gives
character to all the expressions of her culture. In fact, they have
grown out of her inborn spiritual tendency of which her religion is a
natural out flowering. The Indian mind has always realized that the
Supreme is the Infinite and perceived that to the soul in Nature the
Infinite must always present itself in an infinite variety of aspects."
- Sri Aurobindo

mystic aura of India and the enigma that she is has captured
imagination and fancy of great minds. Take a look at what
they have to
say about India.
"Where the mind is without fear
and the head is held high;
Where knowledge is free;
Where the world has not been
broken up into fragments by
narrow domestic walls;
Where words come out from
the depth of truth;
Where tireless striving stretches
its arms towards perfection;
Where the clear stream of reason
has not lost its way into the dreary
desert sand of dead habit;
Where the mind is lead forward by thee
into ever-widening thought and action-
Into that heaven of freedom, my Father,
let my country awake."
"GEETANJALI" -Rabindranath Tagore
We owe a lot to the Indians, who taught us how to count, without which no worthwhile scientific discovery could have been made.
I were asked under what sky the human mind has most fully developed
some of its choicest gifts, has most deeply pondered on the greatest
problems of life, and has found solutions, I should point to India.
-Max Mueller (German scholar)
India is, the cradle of the human race, the birthplace of human speech,
the mother of history, the grandmother of legend, and the great grand
mother of tradition. Our most valuable and most instructive materials in
the history of man are treasured up in India only.
When I read the Bhagavad-Gita and reflect about how God created this universe everything else seems so superfluous.
- Albert Einstein
