Humility is the only way to know that there’s an ocean before you.
You have got into that boat all right, but you have to know a lot. You have to understand a lot.
And you have to still attend to your attention, to your chitta, to your awareness.

You have to be humble in your approach to others. I mean the English language is outwardly very humble, like you must say, “please”, you must say “thank you” ten times…but not in the heart. Like supposing another person doesn’t say thank you, the other person may even beat you, “Why don’t you say thank you to me?”. This is not humility. Humility is that in no way you try to aggress others and if others are aggressive, you accept is as a childish thing, as a stupid thing, as a foolish thing. It has no meaning. Because you are so powerful, you cab bear it. That is humility which you have to practise.

Humility is witnessing

The humility of a person will give you a more stationary. I would say, more permanent state by which you will not react…When you become the witness, you are just watching, just watching, not reacting, not thinking about it but you are in the present. And in the present you just watch, watch and really enjoy.

Humility, not aggression

When the people are aggressive and people are trying to dominate, the humble man is the winner, not the one who dominates…

In spirituality, the first and the foremost thing is that the person becomes very meek, very humble…Humility is the power. His humility is the one that works and his humility is the one that glorifies.. It is not the aggression.

Humility through prayer

“Let me see my mistakes, not others. Let me see why people are not happy with me. Give me strength to have a sweet tongue and a very sweet nature, so that others like my company, they enjoy my company. Let me be  like a flower and not like a thorn.”

You have to pray. All these prayers are going to help you. Then ask for the greatest prayer which you must ask…

“Please keep me away from ego that gives me ideas that I am superior to others or in any way that takes away my meekness and my humility. Give me natural humility by which I can penetrate into the hearts of people.”

Humble like a tree

The tree when it grows, it grows upwards. But when it is laden with fruits, it comes down. First it is attractive by its flowers, by its timber, by the other parts of its body and people try to destroy it for that. But when the fruits appear, they want to preserve it and the tree  bends down with humility. It is very valuable…

With all this knowledge, you bend down like the tree…That simplicity and that humility gives you the special edge, which can pierce into any heart. Thus you become apostles of truth…
