Love of mankind

The Good Samaritan by Svetoslav Roerich. 19431. "The feelings of love and friendship for family and loved ones are beautiful, they teach us the most wonderful and lofty. They are the necessary steps leading us to the acceptance of Cosmic Love, which is intended for every person who understands his great purpose." [Letters of Helena Roerich in 9 Volumes - 3.  070]


2. "Great Service has all humanity in view. Neither nationality nor any other divisions should place limits on Service for the Good. It is not easy to avoid the various stratifications created through millennia. Only the realization of the Higher World can help to conquer all the survivals of superstition and atavism." [AUM, 116]


3. "Above all love there is one universal love." [Flowers of Morya by Nicholas Roerich]


4. "Love for humanity is the result of the development of the heart, which is achieved through thinking." [Supermundane, 181]


5. "It is only an expanded consciousness that allows us, despite all the horrors that are taking place, when the most sacred concepts and foundations of human dignity are trampled, to preserve compassion and love for humanity in our hearts. The heart also feeds on thinking." [Letters of Helena Roerich in 9 Volumes - 6.  029]


6. "Already many boundaries are being erased, but for such new paths a special love of mankind is required. It is necessary to cultivate this quality along with purity of body and spirit. Let hygiene of the spirit have a place in the schools..." [AUM, 166]


7. "The history of each state shows how many wayfarers have crossed its land. Honest study leads one to contemplate mankind as a whole." [AUM, 174]


8. "It is necessary to return often to the thought about humanity as a single heart. There is too much ignorance and impediment where there should be amiable cooperation." [AUM, 175]


9. "... Let us appear on the bright desire to help our unfortunate humanity. He who helps his neighbor wholeheartedly helps himself, and it is not for us to decide where we can bring the best help. Where we are, the best help can be provided and received there." [Letters of Helena Roerich in 9 Volumes - 9.  225]


10. " It arose during a time of fatigue from dealing with people, but the first need that came into view was that of extending aid immediately. This is the very path of the Bodhisattva, on which we forget ourselves in order to help out. Great, indeed, is the energy thus generated; everywhere it is spoken of as love for one’s neighbor. Such love does not reckon or calculate, but acts without delay." [Heart, 568]


Charaka of Ayurvedas. (Guru Charaka) (Charak - In Search of Medicinal Herbs in Himalaya) by Nicholas Roerich. 193211. "People can help themselves by helping their neighbor." [Supermundane, 812]


12. "People must not become afraid at the thought of a good fortune of their near ones, but must rejoice, because the happiness of a near one is our own happiness. The Great Helpers of humanity do not abandon the Earth so long as sufferings go unhealed." [New Era Community, 272]


13. "Learn to find the patience to listen to others speak of their pain. Find the benevolence to give wings to the joy of others. You do not know the source of their sufferings. You do not know the cause of their joy, but learn to offer warmth and encouragement to others." [Supermundane, 756]


14. "However, nothing should deter one from sharing his knowledge and encouraging the growth of consciousness. Therein lies love for one’s fellow men." [Fiery World I, 617]


15. "Love the unhappy, have compassion for the humble." [Leaves of Morya’s Garden I, 88]


16. “…The ability to teach should be developed in people from their early years. Everyone can teach someone something, and should know how to do it. ... Such a concept of service does not come at once, it must be cultivated. ... Such service should not be regarded as onerous. On the contrary, let everyone learn to give joyously, for only in such giving is born true joy. The Thinker taught, “Everyone can serve his neighbor, and everyone can give, even when there seems to be nothing to give. How glorious is that inexhaustible giving!" [Supermundane, 477]
