Swami Vivekananda told—

  • All religions and all methods of work and worship lead us to one and the same goal.[Source]
  • All the great systems of ethics preach absolute unselfishness as the goal.[Source]
  • "Arise ! Awake ! and stop not until the goal is reached."[Source]
  • Death for the cause is our goal, not success.[Source]

  • The goal is to manifest this Divinity within by controlling nature, external and internal.[Source]
  • The goal of all nature is freedom, and freedom is to be attained only by perfect unselfishness; every thought, word, or deed that is unselfish takes us towards the goal, and, as such, is called moral.[Source]
  • The goal of each soul is freedom, mastery — freedom from the slavery of matter and thought, mastery of external and internal nature.[Source]
  • The goal of man is neither misery nor happiness, but we have to be master of that out of which these are manufactured. We must be masters of the situation at its very root, as it were.[Source]
  • The goal of man is to go beyond law. And enjoyment can never be the goal, because enjoyment can only be in nature..[Source]

  • This universe will go on always, our goal is freedom, our goal is unselfishness.[Source]
  • To be more free is the goal of all our efforts, for only in perfect freedom can there be perfection.[Source]
  • To see God is the one goal. Power is not the goal. Pure Existence-knowledge-and-love is the goal; and Love is God.[Source]
  • What we call happiness and good here are but particles of that eternal Bliss. And this eternal Bliss is our goal.[Source]
  • Whether the goal is attained or not is not the point before us now. But until you get out of this wheel of Sams├óra, until the slavery of desire is shaken off, you can't attain either Bhakti or Mukti. To the knower of Brahman, supernatural powers or prosperity are mere trivialities.[Source]
  • You remember that our goal is to perceive the Soul itself.[Source]
