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

The intense desire for God-realization is itself the way to it.

"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."

It is the pure, undefiled flower that finds a place at the Feet of the Lord and nowhere else. Take great care to spend your life in spotless purity, worthy to be dedicated in worship to the Lord. Speak about Him, meditate on His Glory, try to see Him in everyone, Him who is the Self, the breath of life, the heart of hearts. You feel lonely? In very truth you are not alone. Does the Supreme Friend ever forsake His friends?

Whether you worship Christ, Krishna, Kali or Allah, you actually worship the one Light that is also in you, since It pervades all things. Everything originates from Light, everything in its essence is Light.

"When it is found, nothing else remains to be found; the sense of want will not awaken anymore, and the heart's torment be stilled for ever. Do not be satisfied with fragmentary happiness, which is invariably interrupted by shocks and blows of fate; but become complete, and having attained to perfection, be YOURSELF."

Many feel the urge to create a new and better world. Rather than let your thoughts dwell on such matters, you should concentrate on That by the contemplatation of which there is hope of perfect peace. It is man's duty to become a seeker after God or Truth.

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?

Q: Why am I in the world?

SRI MA: He plays in infinite ways. It is His pleasure to play as He does.

Q: But I, why am I in the world?

SRI MA: That is what I have been telling you. All is He, He plays in countless forms and ways. However, in order to find out for yourself why you are in the world, to find out who you are in reality, there are various sadhanas. You study and you pass your exams, you earn money and enjoy spending it. But all this is within the realm of death, in which you continue for life after life, repeating the same thing again and again. But there is another path too, the path of Immortality; which leads to the knowledge of what you really are.

Q: Can anyone help me in this or must I find it out for myself?

SRI MA: The professor can teach you only if you have the capacity to learn. Of course he can give you help but you must be able to respond, you must have it in you to grasp what he teaches.

Q: Which is the best path to Self-knowledge?

SRI MA: All paths are good. It depends on a man's samskaras, his conditioning, the tendencies he has brought with him from previous births. Just as one can travel to the same place by plane, railway, car or cycle, so also different lines of approach suit different types of people. But the best path is the one that the Guru indicates.

Q: When there is only One, why are there so many different religions in the world?

SRI MA: Because He is infinite, there is an infinite variety of conceptions of Him and an endless variety of paths to Him. He is everything, every kind of belief and also the disbelief of the atheist. Your belief in non-belief is also a belief. When you speak of disbelief, it implies that you admit belief. He is in all forms and yet He is formless.

Question: Is it difficult to know which is the true path?

Anandamayi Ma: If you sit with all doors and windows closed, how can you see the path? Open the door and step out, the path will become visible. Once on the way, you will meet other wayfarers, who will advise and guide you as to the path. Your job is to muster whatever strength you have to get underway - thereafter help is assured."

Joys and sorrows are time-born and cannot last. Therefore, do not be perturbed by these. The greater the difficulties and obstructions, the more intense will be your endeavour to cling to His feet and the more will your prayer increase from within. And when the time is ripe, you will gain mastery over this power

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.
