Sant Ravidas Quotes

The Lord is One, but He is diffused in many forms. Bring in, bring in, that All-pervading Lord.The Palmyra palm tree is considered impure, and so its leaves are considered impure as well. But if devotional prayers are written on paper made from its leaves, then people bow in reverence and worship before it.Through the way of devotion, the intellect is imbued with Truth; doubts, entanglements and vices are cut away.When I am in my ego, then You (Lord) are not with me. Now that You are with me, there is no egotism within me.
