My humility does not mean that I want the world to ignore me. That is no humility. My humility says that I should neither veil my ignorance nor make a parade of my knowledge. To be violently dissatisfied with oneself and curse one’s fate is not the sign of humility. The true signs of humility are one’s constant aspiration and one’s inner cry for more Peace, Light and Bliss.

The seed of humility is exceptionally fertile. It may not germinate plants of power and force, but it does yield flowers of sweetness, grace, modesty and light.

Love for the Divine is in its essence a spontaneous spiritual humility.

Humility has no need to sit on the King’s throne. But the King cannot help but bring the throne to humility. And now who is the King? God’s Compassion.

A prayer, in its simplest and most effective definition, is humility, climbing the sky of an all-fulfilling Delight.

Only the true sense of humility can raise us from our knees as high as we aspire.

We must realise that there is only one way of acquiring infinite future possibilities. That way lies in the great power: humility.
