"The demon of doubt should be asked, 'Tell me who I am!' However, then he keeps quiet, because how can he show anything other than Brahman?"

On this path effort never goes to waste, and there is no failure. Even a little effort toward spiritual awareness will protect you from the greatest fear.

One can be redeemed if he/she weeps with a sincere heart and intense longing and repents, for the sins committed. Just repeating the Lord’s name will not be of any help. One has to weep with a sincere heart.

Self-doubt is like a balloon filling this room. It is not people filling this room. Balloon filling this room, is it going to be useful? People filling this room, that is going to be useful. But balloon filling this room is just of no use for anybody. Self-doubt is the balloon of your inner space, which fills your inner space, occupies your inner space and takes away the whole joy, takes away the whole existence.

Please understand, the ideas you carry inside, when they are tainted by self-doubt, it is like you becoming a traitor for you. Swayam Drohi! I tell you, the first thing any human-being needs to do is, stop doing Swayam Droha, stop being a traitor to yourself, stop being Swayam Drohi!

All souls are equal. The only difference between you and me is that I made the effort. I showed God that I love Him, and He came to me. Love is the magnet from which God cannot escape.

Unless you have rid your mind completely of ‘lust and greed,’ you cannot recognize an incarnation of God. It is indeed wonderful for one to renounce ‘lust and greed’ from one’s childhood. Very few people develop such renunciation.

The more we come out and do good for others, the more our hearts will be purified and God will be in them.

All lives belong to us as leaves to a book; but we are unchanged, the witness, the soul, upon whom the impression is made, as when the impression of a circle is made upon the eyes when a firebrand is rapidly whirled round and round. The soul is the unity of all personalities, and because it is at rest, eternal, unchangeable, it is God, Ātman. It is not life (prāṇa), but it is coined into life. It is not pleasure, but it is manufactured into pleasure.

Our fear, our anger are not our enemies; they are us. We have to treat our fear, our anger in a most non-violent way, the most non-dualistic way, like we are treating our own baby.

When the apparent but illusory identity called a person has disappeared into the awareness of total potentiality that it is and has always been, this is called enlightenment.

Those who do not give time to their religion cannot expect to know all at once about God and the hereafter. Usually people don't make the effort, or if they do, the effort is not deep and sincere enough. Nighttime should be spent with God. You sleep more than necessary, and thus waste many valuable hours. Night was meant to screen all the attractions of the world, that you might the more intently explore the kingdom of God.

Question: What do you think of all these new people coming to see you almost daily?

Answer: Nobody is new. They are all familiar to me.

You and I are two persons and yet you and I are one; and the gap between the two of us this also is myself: there can be no question at all of duality. Attachment and hate arise out of the sense of duality.



Everybody's satisfaction is my satisfaction.

Everybody's happiness is my happiness.

Everybody's misery is my misery.



Become drinkers of nectar - all of you - drinkers of the wine of immortality.

Tread the path of immortality, where no death exists and no disease.

When you feel power within yourself, when new light dawns on you from within, the more you can keep it concealed in utter calm and stillness, the more it will grow in intensity. If the slightest opening appears, there is always the fear it will escape.



Sustained effort ends in effortless being - in other words, what has been attained by constant practice is finally transcended, and then spontaneity comes.

Question: What is the easiest way to God?

Sri Anandamayi Ma: Profuse tears.

Question: And if tears do not come...

Sri Anandamayi Ma: Then you should seek the company of those who shed tears, namely in satsang. This is the easiest way to God, through love and devotion.

There is not a ‘somebody’ being empty, peaceful and aware.
There is only emptiness and peace inside pure immutable awareness.
When the illusion of a seeming ‘somebody’ is seen through, the Real is revealed. This Self is not really ‘you’ at all in the physical, psychological or historical sense.
It is pure perfection. You are That.

Mother herself declares:

“I am the servant of every one of you. I dwell in your heart.”

“Mother doesn’t want anything from her children except the burden of their sorrows and sufferings.”

“Mother’s aim is to unite people’s hearts with God and to make them one with Him.”

“Children, love is our real nature. We are of the nature of Divine Love.” (Qouted from Timothy Conway)

The name of the Lord must be recited with awe and wonder, humility and reverence. Feeling is the force that makes the Naama reach the Naami (the bearer of the name). No act done without love can be commended.

A life without love
is a waste.

"Should I look for
spiritual love, or material, or physical love?"

Don't ask yourself this question.
Discrimination leads to discrimination.

Love doesn't need any name,
category or definition.

Love is a world itself.
Either you are in, at the center...
either you are out,
yearning.

Sects must gradually disappear as liberty and knowledge increase. Sects are founded on the nonessential, which by the nature of things cannot survive. The sects have served their purpose, which was that of an exclusive brotherhood on lines comprehended by those within it. Gradually we reach the idea of universal brotherhood by flinging down the walls of partition which separate such aggregation of individuals.
