Victory of spirit

Saint Boris and Saint Gleb by Nicholas Roerich. 1942 	  1. "Darkness is finite, but Light is manifested infinitely. Each one who knows this simplest of truths is already invincible." [AUM, 162]


2. "…There is no defeat in Infinity." [Supermundane, 117]


3. "… Victory will come when one commands oneself to overcome the obstacles. ... In a beneficent command the vibrations are created that unite one with the Higher Forces." [Supermundane, 867]


4. "Victory by good will be the most brilliant and striking victory. You can kill with a snake's sting, but you can't win, because winning will also mean convincing." [Seals by Nicholas Roerich]


5. "A victory should be kind, for then the fires of the heart are beautifully kindled. The less selfishness there is, the more luminous will be the fires. It will be said, “Not everyone is destined to achieve a glorious victory.” No, friends, everyone can gain a glorious victory. Victory is achieved not only upon battlefields. Everyone can overcome his bad habits and thus ignite the fires of the heart. Overcoming one’s faults was called in antiquity the opening of the Supermundane Gates. ... The Thinker said, “Come, victory, and liberate me from my rusty chains.” [Supermundane, 825]


6. "Truly, only through the heart shall we conquer." [Heart, 360]


7. "The ancient covenant "Do not extinguish the Spirit" is deep. Not the vanquished one who was defeated, but the one whose lights bent and went out under the blows from outside. But the winner is always the one whose heart's fire burns victoriously and powerfully in the face of any counter phenomena, no matter how heavy and strong they may be." [Facets of Agni Yoga 1955, 437]


8. "The one who is stronger in spirit is the winner." [Еxcerpts by Boris Abramov from the book "Aspiring Heart" 1952, 124]


9. "... He conquers all who will be able to defeat himself." [Facets of Agni Yoga 1972, 524]


10. "The secret of victory is not to break down the wall of external influences, but to keep the consciousness unclouded in spite of them and thereby assert the superiority of the spirit over them. And then, only then, the opportunity is born to overcome the very waves of these influences as well. The main importance in this case is the state of the spirit, its victorious state, which is the result of a real understanding that the spirit is above all. Only with this consciousness it is possible to go through everything victoriously, and only in this lies the victory over the world." [Facets of Agni Yoga 1964, 192]


11. "It is to stand up to the end and go through everything without hesitation and without retreating in spirit that will be the victorious way." [Facets of Agni Yoga 1953, 343]


12. "Perseverance, firmness and actions, even against evidence, will always bring victory in a just cause." [Letters of Helena Roerich in 9 Volumes - 2. 061]


13. "A victorious state of mind inevitably leads to victory. Always be winners." [Facets of Agni Yoga 1954, 664]
