The True Mother ...

I am the mother of the virtuous as well as the wicked. If my son wallows in the dust or mud, it is I who have to wipe all the dirt and take him on my lap. My son, if a thorn pricks your foot, it hurts me like a spear entering my heart. Never fear, and whenever you are in distress just say to yourself, "I have a mother."

I am your true mother, a mother not by virtue of being your guru's wife, nor by way of empty talk, but truly the mother.

Work ...

Do the Master's work, and along with that practise spiritual disciplines too. Work helps one to keep off idle thoughts. If one is without work, such thoughts rush into one's mind.

Name of God ...

As wind removes the cloud, so the Name of God destroys the cloud of worldliness.

Work Hard ...

My child, you have been extremely fortunate in getting this human birth. Have intense devotion to God. One must work hard. Can one achieve anything without effort? You must devote some time for prayer even in the midst of the busiest hours of the day.
