In this series we are presenting quotes by Sri Chinmoy in combination with a video showing him in meditation, to help seekers find their way into the spiritual world. Today’s episode is called “Loving Yourself” and incorporates the following quote:

“If we love ourselves in an emotional or egotistical way, then we are limiting and binding ourselves. We must love ourselves just because God is breathing inside us, because God wants to fulfill Himself in and through us. We must love ourselves just because our existence and God’s Reality are one and the same thing.”

– Sri Chinmoy
