Sri Ramakrishna Paramahamsa Sayings

I cannot stand anyone calling me guru. It irritates me. Who is the guru? Satchidananda (God) alone is the guru.

Work with your hands, but let your mind remain at His (God) feet.

Lust and greed are at the root of worldliness.

This world is a slippery place. Unless one is careful one is apt to fall. If you control the tongue and the sexual instinct, you will live happily wherever you may be.

When the goal of spiritual life is reached, there remains only compassion in the heart.

Make your lips and your heart the same. – Be sincere in every way.
