Following quotations are taken from ‘Sayings of Sri Ramakrishna’, published by Sri Ramakrishna Math, Mylapore, Chennai-600004. Page numbers are given after the quotations.

May 1 Saturday

You see many stars in the sky at night, but not when the sun rises. O man, because you cannot find god in the days of your ignorance, say not that there is no god -page 23

Xxx

May 2 Sunday

He is born in vain, who having attained the human birth, so difficult to get, does not attempt to realise god in this very life page 23

Xxx

May 3 Monday

A man is rewarded according to his thoughts and motives page 23

Xxx

May 4 Tuesday

Man is born in this world with two tendencies—

Vidya, the tendency to follow the path of liberation and

Avidya, the leaning towards worldliness and bondage, page 23

Xxx

May 5 Wednesday

Know the One, and you will know the all. Ciphers placed after the figure 1 get the value of hundreds and of thousands , but they become valueless if you wipe out that figure. page 24

Xxx

May 6 Thursday

There are pearls in the deep sea, but you must hazard all perils to get them . So also in the quest for the Lord, if your first attempt to see Him proves fruitless, do not lose heart. Persevere in the attempt, and you are sure to realise Him at last. Page 26

Xxx

May 7 Friday

As a lamp does not burn without oil,so man cannot live without god. Page 27

Xxx

May 8 Saturday

The Union of the Jivatman with the Paramatman is like the union of the hour and the minute hands of a watch once in every hour. They are inter related and inter dependent, and though usually separate, they may become united as often as favourable opportunities arise. Page 27

Xxx

May 9 Sunday

The soul enchained is man,but when free from the chain (Maya), it is the Lord page27

Xxx

May 10 Monday

The idea of an individual ego is just like enclosing a portion of the water of the Ganges and calling the enclosed portion one’s own Ganges. Page 28

Xxx

May 11 Tuesday

The Self is not attached to anything. Pleasure, pain, sinfulness, righteousness can never affect the Self in anyway. Page 29.

Xxx

May 12 Wednesday

Men are of different natures according to the preponderance of Sattva, Raja’s or Tamas in them. Page 29

Xxx

May 13 Thursday

A Brahmana s son is no doubt a Brahmana by birth; but some of these born Brahmanas grow up into great scholars, some become priests, others turn out cooks, and still others roll themselves in the dust before courtesan s doors. Page 30

Xxx

May 14 Friday

It is true that god is even in tiger; but we must not therefore go and face the animal. It is true god dwells in the most wicked beings, but it is not proper that we should associate with them. Page 31

Xxx

May 15 Saturday

Even at the time of death the ‘bound souls’ speak of worldly matters only. A parrot may ordinarily sing the holy name of Radha- Krishna, but when it is attacked by a cat, it cries out Kang, Kang, its natural cry. Page 31.

Xxx

May 16 Sunday

A man’s rebirth is determined by what he has been thinking about just before death. Devotional practices are therefore very necessary. Page 32

Xxx

May 17 Monday

Siva and Sakti (Intelligence and Energy) are both necessary for creation. With dry clay no potter can make a pot; water is also necessary. So Siva alone cannot create without the help of Sakti. Page 33

XXXX

May 18 Tuesday

As the cloud covers the sun, so Maya hides the deity. When the cloud moves away , the sun is seen again, when Maya is removed, God becomes manifest-35

Xxx

May 19 Wednesday

The cat catches her kitten with her teeth and they are not hurt;but when a mouse is so caught,it dies. Thus Maya never kills the devotee, hough it destroys others.36

Xxx

May 20 Thursday

Woman and gold, remember, keep men immersed in worldliness and away from god.

Xxx

May 21 Friday

As the monkey sacrifices its life at the feet of the hunter, so does a man at the feet of a beautiful woman 39

Xxx

May 22 Saturday

Money can fetch you bread alone. Do not consider it as your sole end and aim. 43

Xxx

May 23 Sunday

As a piece of rope ,when burnt, retains its form,but cannot serve to bind, so is the ego which is burnt by the fire of supreme Knowledge-51

Xxx

May 24 Monday

The knowledge which purifies the mind and heart alone is true Knowledge , all else is only a negation of Knowledge .54

Xxx

May 25 Tuesday

It is easy to utter, sa,re, ga , ma , pa, dha, ni with the mouth, but it is difficult to play them on an instrument. So it is easy to talk on religion, but difficult to practise it. 55

Xxx

May 26 Wednesday

In the kingdom of God, reason, intellect and learning are of no avail. There the dumb speak, the blind see, and the deaf hear.55

Xxx

May 27 Thursday
