Violin Concerto No. 3 in G Major by W.A. Mozart


St. Panteleimon the Healer by Nicholas Roerich. 1931"The perfecting of earthly labor will not harm the cognition of the distant worlds." [Aum, 21]


"In the case of do-gooding, bribery is unacceptable, because self-serving do-gooding ceases to be such. A Teacher cannot charge a fee for Teaching Life. Teaching is distributed and good is done free of charge. This condition is the main one." [Facets of Agni Yoga 1970, 211]


"Learning to give to people without binding yourself with a bribe will be a great achievement. But sometimes a high spiritual gift is accompanied by an unconscious thought about retribution for it, about the desire for recognition and appreciation, in a word, about some kind of compensation for the benefits given to people. It is the self that weaves its web, in which the spirit is entangled. The Sun sends its rays and light into space, receiving nothing in return, and most importantly, demanding nothing for it. Be like the Sun." [Facets of Agni Yoga 1969, 672]


"The true fire-blossom is actual selflessness; however, it must not only be evident in actions but must live in the consciousness." [New Era Community, 166]


"…of course, the good deed must be sincere. In this, everyone must be his own judge. We value help when it is offered spontaneously, from the heart. There is no use in calculating whether or not to help someone. Most people would stop to help a passing stranger in distress, without thinking what a beautiful deed they are performing. And such conduct is right, for self-congratulation undermines all good results." [Supermundane, 650]


"The extent of the spirit is immense and boundless. This divine attribute is in the potential of everyone's spirit, and the one who feels this opportunity truly becomes a universal citizen. ...Everything is in him, and he is in everything, and he is interested in the whole Cosmos. The quality of unselfishness, so difficult to contain in the earthly, personal consciousness, comes this way." [Еxcerpts by Boris Abramov from the book "Aspiring Heart" 1954, 295]


"... We must learn to perform our work as best as possible, first of all, out of love for the work itself, but not for its results. Only then will our work be beautiful. The key to all achievements lies in this selfless love for everything we do and undertake." [Letters of Helena Roerich in 9 Volumes - I. 160]


"Those who accept evolution will work in its field for the sake of evolution itself, those, who do not, will wait for some personal rewards." [Еxcerpts by Boris Abramov from the book "Aspiring Heart" 1955, 330]


"Those who have lost attachment to the fruits of activity will not worry about their sacrifices. The joy of selfless work for the good of the world will replace the tearful concept of sacrifice." [Еxcerpts by Boris Abramov from the book "Aspiring Heart" 1955, 330]


"A worker in his business sees his reward in him, or rather, does not think about the reward at all." [Еxcerpts by Boris Abramov from the book "Aspiring Heart" 1955, 330]


"Self-reward is the lot of those who contain. The one who has seen clearly rejoices in the sun, and this is his reward. The sun of the spirit will not cease to shine for those who have seen in the spirit; what other radiance should they look for?" [Еxcerpts by Boris Abramov from the book "Aspiring Heart" 1955, 330]


"Rejoicing in someone else's joy and other people's opportunities selflessly is already an achievement. In this way, one can enter the circle of many consciousnesses and thereby free oneself from the self, in order to eventually begin to live in the interests of all mankind." [Facets of Agni Yoga 1955, 534]
