"It is easy to talk on religion, but difficult to practice it."
"This is my simple religion. There is no need for temples no need for complicated philosophy. Our own brain, our own heart is our temple the philosophy is kindness."Ramakrishna on Dalai Lama
"I like your Christ, I do not like your Christians. Your Christians are so unlike your Christ."Ramakrishna on Mahatma Gandhi
"I believe in Christianity as I believe that the sun has risen: not only because I see it, but because by it I see everything else."Ramakrishna on C. S. Lewis
"Aim at heaven and you will get earth thrown in. Aim at earth and you get neither."Ramakrishna on C. S. Lewis
"I would rather live my life as if there is a God and die to find out there isn't, than live my life as if there isn't and die to find out there is."Ramakrishna on Albert Camus
"Work, apart from devotion or love of God, is helpless and cannot stand alone."
"If you desire to be pure, have firm faith, and slowly go on with your devotional practices without wasting your energy in useless scriptural discussions and arguments. Your little brain will otherwise be muddled."
"To work without attachment is to work without the expectation of reward or fear of any punishment in this world or the next. Work so done is a means to the end, and God is the end."
"Bondage is of the mind freedom too is of the mind. If you say 'I am a free soul. I am a son of God who can bind me' free you shall be."
"If you must be mad, be it not for the things of the world. Be mad with the love of God."
