Some sayings of Holy Mother Sri Sarada Devi.
I am the Mother of the virtuous, I am the Mother of the wicked. Whenever you are in distress, say to yourself: `I have a mother`.
Holy men are born on earth to show people the way to God. They teach differently. There are many paths leading to the same goal. Therefore the teachings of all the saints are true.
The aim of life is to realize God and remain immersed in contemplation of Him. God alone is real and everything else is false.
Misery is truly a gift of God. I believe it is a symbol of His compassion.
One must not speak unpleasant truths unnecessary. By indulging in rude words one’s nature becomes rude. One loses sensitivity without control over one’s words.
Only through work can one remove the bondage of work. Total detachment comes later. One should not be without work even for a moment. Work helps one to fend off idle thoughts.
If one sits alone without any work, various thoughts may come into the mind.
When a man sees defects in others his own mind first gets polluted. What does he gain by finding faults in others? He only hurts himself by that.
One should not trifle with a thing, though it may be very insignificant. If you respect a thing, the thing also respects you. Even a broomstick should be treated with respect. One should perform even an insignificant work with respect.
My child, if you want peace, then do not look into anybody’s faults. Look into your own faults. Learn to make the world your own. No one is a stranger, my child, the whole world is your own.
