All will certainly realize God if they are earnest and sincere – Sri Ramakrishna



All will certainly realize God if they are earnest and sincere.

Long must you struggle in water before you learn to swim; similarly, many a struggle must you pass through before you can hope to swim on the ocean of Divine Bliss.

The man of Knowledge knows that God is right here, very near, in the heart; that He has as summed all forms and dwells in all hearts as their Inner Controller.

A certain person asked Sri Ramakrishna, ‘Kindly instruct me in one word so that I may be illumined.’ To which he replied, ‘The Absolute is the only reality; the universe is unreal’ – realize this and then sit silent.


There are two egos – one ripe and the other unripe. ‘This is my house, my room, my son’ – the ego that has this idea is unripe; while the ripe ego is that which thinks – I’ am the servant of the Lord, I am His child, I am ever free and all knowing.
