Cultivation of mind should be the ultimate aim of human existence.. Ambedkar Quotes.

“Cultivation of mind should be the ultimate aim of human existence.”

-B. R. Ambedkar

The ultimate aim of human existence? What is it? – Money, passion, inspiration, growth of one’s mind. I guess the idea is philosophical here. The moment we try to focus on the expansion of one’s mind, we also focus on improving our chances of achieving our dreams and reaching out to the true aspirations which we are made of.

I like the religion that teaches liberty, equality and fraternity… Ambedkar Quotes


“I like the religion that teaches liberty, equality and fraternity.”
B. R. Ambedkar

The purpose of religion? – Esp in the days of fundamental riots and people trying to impose their views and forcefully convert others? What is the true purpose of religion. In one word, it can be tolerance, mutual appreciation, respect and above all the truth and development of an individual to the best of his capacities. There is no religion without a human being, it is time that the focus is dealt on that.

Life should be great rather than long…Ambedkar Quotes


“Life should be great rather than long”
B.R.Ambedkar

How should one’s life be? Should we look at achievement, fulfillment, longevity, enjoyment? I do agree that the answers are different to each one of us and rightly so. There can never be one single answer or a right answer, but this one seems to make sense – making life great, making life count. I would like to believe that we all are here for a reason and that reason is unique to each one of us. The purpose is just to try and live to these ideals and make the best out of ourselves.

 

 

men are mortal quotes, ambedkar quote on ideas, ideas are immortal quotes, ideas quotes, inspiring quotes

“Men are mortal. So are ideas. An idea needs propagation as much as a plant needs watering. Otherwise both will wither and die.”
-B. R. Ambedkar


4) “Men are mortal. So are ideas. An idea needs propagation as much as a plant needs watering. Otherwise both will wither and die.”

-B. R. Ambedkar

None of us are immortal – no matter how much we like to be. But of course there is a way to leave our thoughts, ideas and visions behind – these visions can act as driving forces to future generations. They may act as the collective aspiration of a society, they might even act as a window to the past. But they do stay longer, they are immortal and make a statement at each walk of life. None of us remember Gandhi or Nehru as a person, maybe cos we never met them, but we do remember them as ideas, aspirations and characters and they all have been immortal in their own ways through us.

Religion must mainly be a matter of principles only
– Ambedkar Quotes

 “Religion must mainly be a matter of principles only. It cannot be a matter of rules. The moment it degenerates into rules, it ceases to be a religion, as it kills responsibility which is an essence of the true religious act.”
– B.R.Ambedkar

Religion, personality, character and the very definition of a person and a human being is an amalgamation of values and ideas, the thoughts we stand for, the thoughts we promote and the ones we live for through our lives. Knowingly or unknowingly we all have our own value counters filled up and we react to them inadvertently. So should be religion. It cannot be about rules or the matters of worship and the way it is done. It is more about the matter of principles, the reason behind religion and the very purpose of it.


”The Duty must be performed,let the Efforts be successful or not,let the work be Appreciated or not. When a man’s Sincerity of purpose and Capacity are proved even his enemies come to respect him”

This quote is added upon our friend Vinod’s suggestion. I almost feel bad for having missed this one but thanks to Vinod, we now have the 6th quote :). This quote kinda links Karmayoga to me. I am no expert, but Karmayoga simply speaks about actions and actions alone. It sounds too philosophical on the outset but if you delve deep into it, the logic and the sense in it is absolutely brilliant. Do the work for the sake of work alone and the rest of everything will follow you. It simply says- just focus on what you have to do and do a damn good job at it, the rest of it is simply an outcome which you should not really be too concerned about. For that outcome is going to happen and this work is going to serve you some way or the other.

The means ends theory if I may generalise!


These were our top quotes from Ambedkar, if you think we missed any, please do let us know below and it would be a delight to add to the list.

We would love to hear your point of view

  1. Beautiful quotes . I was using the third one without realizing its as His ! And the fourth one is the one which is needed so much as all followers of all great men take their words for face value irrespective of the change of an era… Thanks for the share Vinay .. I respect him a lot .

    • I really liked framing this post Kokila. It was really nice reading more about him and of course his quotes as well. I guess the third one probably has taken many forms and even for me it will always be difficult to identify who said that, owing to the many people who have said it – perhaps with different wordings. But surely great words to live by though, an inspirational man, a creator of an era and someone whose principles are valid till date 🙂

  2. While his quotes on religion is about oneness, I am not a great advocate of this thoughts. Primarily because at least in Maharashtra he kind of strengthen the divide between the different classes of people. again a personal view

    • I think the divide was created and developed further to feed the political aspirations of the so called leaders. As for his ideas I think they were broadly defined based on his experiences and knowledge. The others found a way to use the fan following to create the divide they want. The story of politics I guess. It always takes people away from the real purpose of it..

    • Thank you Maniparna. It is quite amazing that we still live by a lot things which he did about 60 odd years ago.. Cheers to him.. And his personal life is truly an inspiration to say the least 🙂

    • Right Maniparna. . .we should not forgot the contribution of baba saheb. He save the humanity social discrimination of depressed classes is still there but with the law n regulations laid down in constitution are awsm remedies. . .we salute the great peraonality.

    • Interesting thought Nitin. Although I do believe that it is not a manner of comparison, but cent to cent, I think I have a lot more reasons to side towards Gandhi, the challenges, the grit of personality were way different I believe and no wonder he is the father of our nation!

    • There is no comparison between Baba Sahab and Mr Gandhi. Baba Sahab was constructing mind and the top scholar in the world and Gandhi was 3rd division, racist, rapist and best hypocrite. Best wishes

  3. Hi Vinay, You seem to be a person who studied Dr.B.R.Ambedkar ….!!! He had been the ocean of knowedege which he devoted for Indian without caring his sons & wife … if we study him we get way how to live life even in adverse situation ….such a insperational human being ! It will take time for people to understnad him & his contribution not only indian but the world who worship his thoughts … how many of us know RBI has been set up based on his book…. ” Problem of Ruppee “.. how many of us know he is the arcitect of workers laws ..? how many of us know he is designer of Indian Flag ? how many of us know the life we every indian indivisual live today ..our rights/authority/responsibilities/moral has been protected & repected through his thought only…!!! Colombia University declared him symbol of knowledege & greatest person of top 100 talent personalities of world….!!! we have such a insperiational icon …my request to all the reader try to know more about him then you can make your own views & thoughts about him. i respect him a lot …. thanks Vinay for posting his quotes

  4. Hi Vinay, We can add one more time Proven excellent Quotes from Dr.BR Ambedkar….”The Duty must be perfomed,let the Efforts be successful or not,let the work be Appreciated or not. When a man’s Sincerity of purpose and Capacity are proved even his enemies come to respect him” ……. It has been a thought provoking quotes from him…when someone would try to mean it they would not until they know & understood him. His Greatness has been tried to hide & not to publish publicly …I see a great conspiracy of some well wisher of him…isn’t it ????

  5. I was very happy to see that there are at least some people who realize the importance of life of Dr.Babasaheb Ambedkar….The incredible man with incredible work

  6. I fogoet myself one’s in my but never forget Dr. B.R.Ambedkar….no more words to discrib his talent.

  8. My only wish from the bottom of my heart….
    Whether our country give him this title or not but for me he is THE FATHER OF MODERN INDIA…
    SALUTE AND JAI BHIM

    • He truly deserves that. I had an opportunity to read a part of Indian polity which made me realise that there are so many nuances and delicate things that need to be taken to actually craft a constitution. What he did is truly an amazing feat indeed.

  9. Firstly, big salute to our Father. For all things giving …which cannot define by word …my father had given max contributions for india…not only india but also whole world ….but what india or gov had given to him…only just celebrating his jayantior birthday ….
    Our government & not only government should spread their ideology of governs and but also to make use of them..please respect this great soul .also there is nothing in ancient manmade god mythology.this are only the mean of fill their pockets
    …..vinay for sharing this post…thanku vinay
    …jai bhim….form Bottom of my heart….

    • True Dikshant, these people have done some amazing things for the country. Reading through Ambedkar’s personal journey through life was an immense amount of motivation in my school days. I think there is a lot of motivation we derive from this man and he is the one person responsible for the constitution on which the entire country depends.

      Dikhsant, I was thinking since you are a big fan of this man, maybe we could increase our homage by writing more about his achievements. Would you like to make a compilation of the same if you like? I would love to post more about him so that our readers know more about the man, more than just a few quotes and statues out there.

  10. Firstly, big salute to our Father. For all things giving …which cannot define by word …my father had given max contributions for india…not only india but also whole world ….but what india or gov had given to him…only just celebrating his jayantior birthday ….
