Cunningness & Simplisity

vaibhav's picture



It is only after the practice of intense tapas that men are freed of guile and stinginess. God vision comes to them who are free from crookedness and cunning. But in the name of simplicity, man should not become a simpleton. It is good to be a devotee, but to be a dullard. Know what is right and do what is good.

— Sri Ramakrishna Paramahamsa



Cause

vaibhav's picture



Neither this person nor that person is the cause of anything; at the root of all is God. Everything has emerged from him. Never forget him, “from whom has streamed forth this eternal activity”…. Don’t pay much attention to external causes; rather, practice to see everything within. “Your lover is in yourself, and your enemy too is within you.” (A Hindi saying). “He himself is his friend, and he himself is his enemy(Gita VI.5)”.

— Swami Turiyananda



Excess

Don’t eat too much, and give up this craze for outer cleanliness. People with a craze do not attain Knowledge. Follow conventions only as much as necessary. Don’t go to excess.

— Sri Ramakrishna



Manifestation of the Divine

vaibhav's picture



… in this universe, the Divine manifests, expresses Himself as Knowledge in the mind, as Love in the Heart, as Power in our Life-impulses, and as Beauty in the Physical. And what is beauty? Beauty is a perfect condensation, a perfect coordination of everything that is involved.

— M.P.Pandit



God Everywhere

Body

vaibhav's picture



This body has been given to us by God and we have no right to punish it by refusing to clothe it elegantly, feed it fully. We are asked to look upon the body as a temple of God. We have to treat as sacred, keep it pure, well-decorated.

— M.P.Pandit



Joy Of Life

Once you recognize that there is joy in life, suffering changes its complexion.

— M.P.Pandit



Joy Of Life

vaibhav's picture



Nobody wants to die, nobody wants to leave this world; even the poorest man, even the man who suffers the most, does not want to die, because deep within him there is the joy of life. If you can total up all the suffering and all the happiness in this world, happiness will be found to be more, that is why there is a will to live. Nobody wants to end his life. This is the secret of life; there is joy hidden in life, and all our education, our culture, our religion must awaken this sense of joy, sense of happiness, sense of beauty in each one of us and to the extent we serve this ideal, we serve not only humanity, but also God.

— M.P.Pandit
