Only two kinds of people can attain self-knowledge: those who are not encumbered at all with learning, that is to say, whose minds are not over-crowded with thoughts borrowed from others; and those who, after studying all the scriptures and sciences, have come to realise that they know nothing
Sri Ramakrishna Deva
The way of worship is not important as long as one is aware of the inner purpose of rituals and activities he performs and recognizes the supreme power behind the idols and he worships.
There are not two minds, one good and the other evil. It is only the vasanas or tendies of the mind that are of two kinds, good and favourable, evil and unfavourable.
When the mind is associated with the former it is good; and when associated with the latter it is called evil.
Bhagavan Sri Ramana
You, as a body,mind,or soul, area dream, but what you really are, is Existence, Knowledge, and Bliss
YOU ARE THE GOD OF THIS UNIVERSE.
From this day onwards, you must win over everyone through love and compassion.
