Teachings on Humility in Hinduism

Forsaking conceit, force, pride, lust, wrath and (superfluous) possessions; egoless and tranquil at heart, one becomes worthy of becoming one with Brahman.
(Bhagavad Gita, 18.53)

Mastery over the senses is the source of humility; from humility flow all noble qualities. True nobility wins human hearts; and people’s love is the fount of felicity. (Bharavi)

There are two signs of knowledge: first, absence of pride, and second, a peaceful nature. (Sri Ramakrishna)

Be not proud, says Kabir, of your high and tall mansion; death will lay you down to ground and grass will grow over all. (Kabir)

Humility is a great aid to self improvement. All virtues come to a humble person. (Swami Turiyananda).
