By ceaseless prayer He Who is Akhands (whole) is found. One's own Self, the Life of one's life, the Beloved of One's heart is the One to be eagerly sought.

Who is known as a Vaishnava? One who sees Visnu everywhere. And as a Sakta? One who beholds the Great Mother, and nothing save Her. In truth, all the various ways of thought spring from one common source - who then is to be blamed, who to be reviled or suppressed? All are equal in essence.

The Universe was created out of joy
and this is why you find joy in the fleeting things of the world. Without joy, life is an ordeal.
You must try to attain to that great Joy
which has brought forth the world.

Endeavour to concentrate on the breath; this will provide a check on the mind preventing it from wandering away to outer objects.

It is possible to practice God’s Name under the most adverse circumstances.. He causes everything to happen and is there­fore ever near.

When you leave everything to Him Who is the Fountain of Peace, and then only may you hope for peace.

When the mind centres on what gives peace and one’s gaze dwells on what promotes it, when One’s ears listen to what fills the heart with peace and at all times there is a response from Him Who is peace itself, then only can there be promise of peace.

The right sustenance for the mind cannot be had from anything that is of this world and hence perishable, but solely from that which is Eternal. The taste of the Eternal will still the mind. The Universe was created out of joy and this is why you find joy in the fleeting things of the world. Without joy life is an ordeal. You must try to attain to that great Joy which has brought forth the world.

O Will Supreme, Thy Will prevails.

The Fountain of Goodness accomplishes everything when the time is ripe.

To aspire to That which is Eternal Truth is right for everyone.

Of Thee alone must be the spoken word,
All else is but futility and pain.

See what helps you to keep away all other thoughts and adopt that method for your meditation.

It is for the Guru to point out the method; he will show you the way to understanding and instruct you in your sadhana. It is for you to keep on practiCing it faithfully. But the fruit comes spontaneously in the form of Self-revelation.

The power to make you grasp the Ungraspable duly manifests itself through the Guru. Where the question "How am I to proceed?" arises, fulfillment has obviously not yet been reached.

Therefore, never relax your efforts until there is Enlightenment. Let no gaps interrupt your attempt, for a gap will produce an eddy, whereas your striving must be continuous like the flowing of oil, it must be sustained, constant, an unbroken stream.

For one who knows me, I am one with him;
for one who wants to know me,
I am very near to him;
and for one who does not know me,
I am a beggar before him.

If you live with the conviction that God is in the closest contact with you, you will gradually discover that there is nothing but God

Treat with equal love all the people with whom you have relations. Thus the abyss between 'myself' and 'yourself' will be filled.

Always bear this in mind: Everything is in God’s hands, and you are His tool to be used by Him as He pleases. Try to grasp the significance of ‘all is His’ and you will immediately feel free from all burdens. What will be the result of your surrender to Him? None will seem alien, all will be your very own Self.

Questioner: Am I right to believe that you are God? SRI ANANDAMAYI MA: There is nothing save Him alone, everyone and everything are but forms of God. In your person, also He has come here now to give darshan. Q: Then why are you in this world? SRI MA: In this world? I am not anywhere. I am myself reposing within myself. Q: What is your work? SRI MA: I have no work. For whom can I work since there is only One?

Sri Anandamayi Ma: Just as one does not water the leaves of a tree but its roots, so also one has to grapple with man's disease as its root. Man's root lies in the brain, Therefore the remedy for all ills is to still the mind. When man's mind has been stilled, all will be well with him, both physically and psychologically.

Question: How does the mind become still?

Sri Anandamayi Ma: By treading the path that leads to the realisation of "Who am I?" Your body that was young and is now old with its graying hair and its teeth falling out, does not last for ever. It is not the real "I." Therefore man has to find out who he really is. When he tries to do this, his mind will be supplied with the right nourishment that will calm it. The right sustenance for the mind cannot be had from anything that is of this world and hence perishable, but solely from that which is Eternal. The taste (rasa) of the Eternal will still the mind.

Who is it that loves and who is it that suffers?
He alone stages a play with Himself.
The individual suffers because he perceives duality.
Find the One everywhere and in everything
and there will be an end to pain and suffering.

God is the one great Reality. To know and experience Him is the whole purpose of human existence. So do not hesitate to strive to achieve this great goal. Be patience in all the ups and downs of life. Everything will right itself. Do all that is necessary to be done, but do not be anxious. Do your best and leave the rest to God.

In very truth, the Eternal's offspring must centre their thoughts on Him. Divorced from Him there cannot be even a prospect of peace - never, never, never. By abiding in God man will find peace, the veil will be rent, and the Dispeller of Sorrow stand revealed. He alone is the conqueror of evil, He is yours, the sole treasure of the human heart.

"Your earthly pension expires with your life, but the divine pension continues long, long after death. Those who amass money, store it up in a hidden chamber of their house, add to this store what they can save from time to time, and keep a constant watch over their treasure. So also reserve a little corner of your mind and heart for God and always steal an opportunity to add to your stock in the shape of the invocation of His name or some pious work or divine thought." One day Mother was showing the various ways of saluting God and said: "Lose yourself altogether when bowing down to God with a single-minded devotion and you will obtain joy and power in proportion. If you cannot do anything else, at least morning and evening at the appointed time, lay down your body, mind and life before Him in salutation and surrender, and think of Him just a little."

In this connection she added: "There are two kinds of pranamas : Offering to Him your whole body and mind with all thoughts, desires, sense-impressions, love, affection, devotion, just like emptying the contents of a full pitcher to its last drop. The other way is like scattering face-powder through the minute holes of a powder-box : the major portion of your thoughts and desires is kept back in a hidden chamber of your mind, and only a little dust is allowed to escape."

Whether you like it or not , you will have to make the Eternal your constant companion - just like a remedy which has got to be taken.

Verily, of Him is all that need be said,
The rest but vanity, woe.
Without loving God you will not get anywhere. Remember this at all times.
