Humility Leads to God-realization

Hiranyagarbha Lingam Manifested by Swami Vishwananda November 2009

On the way to God-realization...
You will not reach God-realization with pride.
You will not reach it with arrogance.
You will reach God-realization only
when you are humble.
And people will be against you.
-Swami Vishwananda-

Mahavatar Kriya Babaji was seen by Lahiri Mahasaya at a Kumbha Mela at Allahabad, India, washing the feet of a matted-haired sadhu. Lahiri asked Babaji what he was doing there (at Kumbha Meela). Babaji replied, "I am washing the feet of this renunciate,...By serving wise and ignorant sadhus, I am learning the greatest of virtues, pleasing to God above all others -- humility. "
(Autobiography of a Yogi by Paramahansa Yogananda)
