    [​IMG] hi

    My family and my husband's family all are devotees of Sri Ramakrishna. Back in India we use to regularly visit the Math and participate in all its activities. Here in California we do have a private centre but that's quite far from our place.

    This thread is for all who would like to share anything related to Sri Ramakrishna, Sri Sarada Devi and Swami Vivekananda.

    Those who are not aware about them, pls feel free to ask.

    Regards. :)

    Hello To all,

    Here are some Sayings of Sri Ramakrishna :

    • *"Life is an expression of the spontaneous creativity (Lila) of God. Pleasure and pain, success and failure, etc are to be borne with patience, and one should resign oneself to God’s will under all circumstances."

    • * "The goal of human life is the realization of the Ultimate Reality which alone can give man supreme fulfilment and everlasting peace. This is the essence of all religions."

    Hello to all,

    Some Sayings for the Householder:

    "Do all your duties, but keep your mind on God. Live with all - with wife and children, father and mother - and serve them. Treat them as if they were very dear to you but know in your heart of hearts that they do not belong to you."

    Hello to all,

    Some Sayings on Karma:

    "It is not possible for you to give up work altogether. Your very nature will lead you to it whether you like it or not. Therefore the scriptures ask you to work in a detached spirit, that is to say, not to crave for the work's results. To work in such a spirit of detachment is known as Karma yoga."

    Hi to All Viewers,

    I feel really strange that despite of having 185 views to this post there is not a single reply.

    Hi ShivaP,

    I like this thread. I have gone to the mutt two or three times, along with my daughter. She is the devotee of Sri Ramakrishna. She likes Swami Vivekaananda too.. The sayings posted by you are really worth and I like it.
