and some great quotes


I do tweet frequently on twitter. Though mostly I avoid Political subjects and stick to social and spiritual aspects, My responses to serious National events also form part of my tweets. 

Some tweets reflect thought provoking quotes of others (like OSHO, as indicated at the end). Some are in reply to others’ tweets (Indicated at beginning). Many are ideas of the day, flashing in my brain.

Enjoy all of them. You will find many of them interesting and topical.

1.    If Love and peace are not inside, Rest of Religion is redundant. God has no place inside you- whatever else you do.
2.    If Love and Peace stand rooted firmly inside, Rest of religion is redundant. God is already within.
3.    Love & Peace must be the Religion, which Unites world against Hatred and violence.
4.    Hindus interpret Hinduism, Muslims interpret Islam, Christians interpret C'nity in many ways. And, fight on these differences.
5.    Freedom of Expression is very valuable. But, there are differences of opinion on what it really means, where it stops.
6.    In the beginning was the word. The word was God. And God was LOVE! You don't see God. But, U can see Love.
7.    Love and compassion are necessities, not luxuries-says Dalai Lama. Terrorism & Cruelty exist where people with love-less hearts exist
8.    Take away Love & our earth is a tomb-says Robert Browning. Krishna to Gandhi, every Great man said so. Sin & cruelty persist where love doesn't.

Well; these are my recent tweets. As I said, You and I can agree, or disagree – but we must think of the social ills all around us, debate on them and come to some mutually acceptable solutions. Democracy is - finding such mutually acceptable and beneficial solutions.
