Swami Premeshananda Quotes

If one keeps three-quarters of his mind fixed within, he can shake the world with the remaining quarter.

Mukti cannot be achieved through work unless the work is done unselfishly.

Through work one can find out how free from desire his mind is and how much laziness has been eliminated. Through work one can know how much rajas, ahamkara (egotism). selfishness, etc. are in the mind and body.

When silent, everybody is a paramahansa! When one works unselfishly, his meditation also becomes steady. His mind is calm who does good work. It is easy to calm the mind through work. Unless we work, and concentrate while working, the mind will not become concentrated in meditation.

Swami Premeshananda (1884-1967), a highly respected monk of the Ramakrishna Order was a disciple of Holy Mother, Sri Sarada Devi.
