Sri Anandamayi Ma Musings

Sense enjoyment acts like slow poison. You are driven thereby towards death. Therefore, it is man's duty as a human being to get into the current that leads to immortality.
Your sole duty is to remember that He alone is, and that everything is His doing. "Invoke Him and be constantly intent on realizing Him.
Householders should emulate the ancient rishis (sages) who were married men living with their families and leading a life dedicated to God.
Among all creatures, man alone has been endowed with the capacity to realize God. Sri Anandamayi Ma
