In this article we are going to make a collection of Swami Vivekananda's quotes on realisation.
  • He who has realised the Atman becomes a storehouse of great power.[Source]
  • Hold we on to realisation, to being Brahman, to becoming Brahman.[Source]
  • If there is a God we must see Him, if there is a soul we must perceive it; otherwise it is better not to believe.[Source]
  • If we once understand that this realisation is the only religion, we shall look into our own hearts and find how far we are towards realising the truths of religion.[Source]
  • It is this power of realisation that makes religion. No amount of doctrines or philosophies or ethical books, that you may have stuffed into your brain, will matter much, only what you are and what you have realised. So we have to realise religion.[Source]
  • It was the same God, and the different realisations were only degrees and differences of vision.[Source]
  • Not talking, theorising, argumentation, but realisation. That I call practical religion.[Source]
  • Our own realisation is beyond the Vedas, because even they depend upon that.[Source]
  • Realisation is beyond virtue and vice, beyond future and past; beyond all the pairs of opposites.[Source]
  • Realisation is real religion, all the rest is only preparation — hearing lectures, or reading books, or reasoning is merely preparing the ground; it is not religion. Intellectual assent and intellectual dissent are not religion.[Source]
  • Realisation of love comes to none unless one becomes a perfect Jnani.[Source]
  • Realisation will come in the fullness of time, by living constantly in the company of Sâdhus (holy men).[Source]
  • Religious realisation does all the good to the world.[Source]
  • Talking is one thing, and realising is another.[Source]
  • The essential truth is realisation.[Source]
  • The man who realises, "I am He", though clad in rags, is happy.[Source]
  • The only power is in realisation, and that lies in ourselves and comes from thinking.[Source]
  • This realisation alone is the soul of religion.[Source]
  • Until your religion makes you realise God, it is useless.[Source]
  • What we experience in the depths of our souls is realisation.[Source]
  • When a man realises, he gives up everything.[Source]
