Love is our only reason for living and the only purpose of life. We live for the sake of love, and we live seeking love... it is not surprising that we keep looking for love. All of us are nothing but vibrations of love. We are sustained by love, and in the end we merge back into love.

— Swami Muktananda

The most superior Swami Muktananda quotes that may be undiscovered and unusual

The world is nothing but a school of love;

our relationships with our husband or wife, with our children and parents, with our friends and relatives are the university in which we are meant to learn what love and devotion truly are.


Revere the body and care for it, for it is a temple.
