108 sayings of Sri Ramakrishna...

Post by Ajay0 »

A website containing 108 sayings of Sri Ramakrishna....

Some insightful sayings of his....
Children! Never fight in the name of religion. All of these are true. There is complete harmony in their soul. All of them are based on certain noble principles.

Destroy the evil tendencies in man like lust, greed and anger and not the man. These tendencies are the real kafirs and not the man.

Do all your duties in the world, but keep your mind on God.

It is the mind that makes one wise or ignorant, bound or emancipated.

Those who see the Invisible can do the impossible.

A man must work. Only then can He see God. One cannot develop love of God or obtain His vision without work. Work means meditation, prayer, affirmation and the like. The chanting of God's name and glories is work too. You may also include charity, sacrifice, and so on.

Once the mind has been trained to fix itself on formed images, it an easily accustom itself to fix on formless realities.

Knowledge leads to unity. Ignorance to disunity.

Man's ego itself is Maya. It is the veil that shuts the light.

This world is a slippery place. Unless one is careful one is apt to fall. If you control the tongue and the sexual instinct, you will live happily wherever you may be.

It is the mind that makes one wise or ignorant, bound or emancipated. One is holy because of his mind, one is wicked because of his mind, one is a sinner because of his mind, and it is the mind that makes one virtuous. So one whose mind is always fixed on God requires no other practices, devotion or spiritual exercises.

God is seen when the mind is tranquil.

~ Sri Ramakrishna
Wholesome virtuous behavior progressively leads to the foremost.~ Buddha AN 10.1

If you do right, irrespective of what the other does, it will slow down the mind. ~ Rajini Menon

Since no link is given, here are nearly 400 that Swami Vivekananda gave to Max Müller around 1898:

http://www.venerabilisopus.org/en/books ... muller.pdf

Here are the first two:
1. Thou seest many stars at night in the sky, but findest them not when the sun
rises. Canst thou say that there are no stars, then, in the heaven of day? So, O man,
because thou beholdest not the Almighty in the days of thy ignorance, say
not that there is no God.
2. As one and the same material, viz. water, is called by different names by
different people--one calling it 'water,' another 'vâri,' a third 'aqua,' and another
'pani'--so the one Sat-kit-ânanda, the Everlasting-Intelligent-Bliss, is invoked by
some as God, by some as Allah, by some as Hari, and by others as Brahman.
A true mind and true intent bring truth within truth. True practice and true cultivation take the truth beyond truth. True behavior and true conduct add truth to truth. In everything and every way, be true, true, true. Master Hua
