Image courtesy: Sri Ramakrishna MathSri Ramakrishna Paramahansa represents the very core of the spiritual realizations of the seers and sages of India. His whole life was an uninterrupted contemplation of God. He reached a depth of God-consciousness that transcends all time and place and has a universal appeal. Seekers of God of all religions feel irresistibly drawn to Ramakrishna's life and teachings. Who better than this mystic can explain the concept of God?

Sri Ramakrishna said, "Because of the screen of Maya (illusion) that shuts off God from human view, one cannot see Him playing in one's heart. After installing the Deity on the lotus of your heart, you must keep the lamp of remembering God ever burning. While engaged in the affairs of the world, you should constantly turn your gaze inwards and see whether the lamp is burning or not."

To read more such nuggets of wisdom from the saint, read this collection of quotations about the true nature and infinite forms of the Absolute and how to approach the Ultimate Reality - told by Sri Ramakrishna in his own inimitable way. Read Full Article

In the Western mind it appears one must be firm and aggressive in the “holy” mission. At least, that is the stereotype. If we appear to be slack and fail to act in defense of our supposed faith, we are seen as weak. My religious approach is more of a mystic and have utmost respect for those who can act inwardly, translated reflection. When we start from the inward and let our outward reflect our inner state, we will be much happier and less a victim of this world’s urgings.

all are born spiritual souls as all are emanated from ONLY ONE CREATOR who is with all as ONLY ONE and there is no second and THE CREATOR blessed all with the divine love in abundance to share with all as all are one with only ONE CREATOR.
let us meditate on ONENESS OF ONE CREATOR at our own free will without any conditions to recieve the enlightenment to be in the path of divine devotional spiritualim as light of spiritualism will enlighten our souls with ONENESS OF ONE CREATOR.
