"No one else is here, and you are my own people.
Let me tell you something. I have come to the final realization that
God is the Whole and I am a part of Him, that God is the Master and
I am His servant. Furthermore, I think every now and then that
He is I and I am He."

The Gospel of Sri Ramakrishna

The tranquil clarity devoid of mental turmoil is the samadhi which is essential for Liberation. [Therefore] try earnestly to experience the peaceful consciousness, the clarity of heart, by destroying the deceptive turmoil [of mind].

(Guru Vachaka Kovai, 919)

When wisdom entereth into thine heart, and

Happy [is] the man [that] findeth wisdom, and the man
[that] getteth understanding. For the merchandise
of it [is] better than the merchandise of silver,
and the gain thereof than fine gold.

O LORD, rebuke me not in thine anger,
neither chasten me in thy hot displeasure.
Have mercy upon me, for I [am] weak:
heal me; for my bones are vexed.
Have mercy upon me, for I [am] weak:
heal me; for my bones are vexed.
Let all mine enemies be ashamed and sore vexed:
let them return [and] be ashamed suddenly.

Hugging along with love and affection,
Removing your problems due to attraction,
Is the God’s Vel which makes you happy.

The Golden Vel which gives comfort to devotees who have faith,
The Vel belonging to the Lord of Valli.

The wealthy Vel which is endeared by the pretty peacock,
The sparkling Vel which is the grace of the Goddess,
Who is primeval and is wanted by all universe.

       Woman and wealth are the two main obstacles in the way of
our Pramartha (spiritual life); and Baba and provided in Shirdi two
institutions, viz., Dakshina and Radha-Krishna-Mai. Whenever they
came to Him, He demanded Dakshina from them, and asked them
to go to the 'SCHOOL' (Radha-Krishna-Mai's house). If they stood
these two tests well, i.e. if they showed that they were free from
attachment for woman and wealth, their progress in spirituality
was rapid and assured by Baba's grace and blessings.

Therefore we do not lose heart.
Even though our outward man is perishing,
yet the inward man is being renewed day by day.

O! Lord Muruga
you are the one with the form, you are also one without a form.
You are the one who has it all, and you are the one who does not have it all,
you are present in the smallest, in the flower, in the ring of the bell, and in the Light.
You are the embryo, you are the life, you are the destiny, and you are the fate.
Please come upon us as our Guru and bestow your blessings.



Nothing can be more strange than this.
The Self is not attained by doing anything,
but remaining still and being as we are.

One day Chuang Tzu and a friend were walking by a river.

"Look at the fish swimming about," said Chuang Tzu, "They are really enjoying themselves."

"You are not a fish," replied the friend, "So you can't truly know that they are enjoying themselves."

"You are not me," said Chuang Tzu. "So how do you know that I do not know that the fish are enjoying themselves?"
