In this Talk:

“God and His Splendour – God alone is real; the Splendour has but a two days’ existence.” We must remember this when we’re carried away by the surge of life’s current. However attractive or precious a thing is, it is evanescent.

The company of holy people is important in spiritual life. Association with the holy gradually makes us holy. “Yoga is possible when the mind becomes pure.” Purity of heart is another necessary virtue for advancing on the spiritual path.”

  • “Think of the sun and of ten jars filled with water. The sun is reflected in each jar. At first you see one real sun and ten reflected ones. If you break nine of the jars, there will remain only the real sun and one reflection. Each jar represents a jiva [individual soul].
    Following the reflection one can find the real sun. Through the individual soul one can reach the Supreme Soul. Through spiritual discipline the individual soul can get the vision of the Supreme Soul.
    What remains when the last jar is broken cannot be described.

The Gospel of Sri Ramakrishna:

The conversations between Sri Ramakrishna, the 19th-century mystic and promoter of interfaith understanding, and the brilliant, questioning minds of Calcutta. In Sri Ramakrishna, they came face-to-face with a type of Spirituality and mystical states they had only read about. Translated from Bengali by Swami Nikhilananda with the literary help of Margaret Woodrow Wilson, daughter of President Woodrow Wilson and Joseph Campbell, foreword by Aldous Huxley.
