Sarada Devi
The mantra purifies the body. Man becomes pure by repeating the name of God. So repeat His name always.
Devi quotes
The happiness of the world is transitory. The less you become attached to the world, the more you enjoy peace of mind.
Devi
No one can suffer for all time. No one will spend all his days on this earth in suffering. Every action brings its own result, and one gets one's opportunities accordingly.




Devi Sarada quotes
In the course of time one does not feel even the existence of God. After attaining enlightenment one sees that gods and deities are all Maya.
Devi Sarada
Everything, husband, wife, or even the body, is only illusory. These are all shackles of illusion. Unless you can free yourself from these bondages, you will never be able to go to the other shore of the world.
Sarada Devi quotes
He who will pray to God eagerly will see Him.
Sarada Devi
This world is moving around like a wheel. That indeed is the last birth in which one gets completely rid of all desires.
Devi Sarada quotes
However strong or beautiful this body may be, its culmination is in those three pounds of ashes. And still people are so attached to it. Glory be to God.
Devi
What else does one obtain by realization of God? Does one grow two horns? No, the mind becomes pure, and through a pure mind one attains knowledge and awakening.
Devi Sarada
Certainly you will have doubts. There will be questionings and faith will return again. That is how faith is established.
Sarada Devi
What an illusion Mahamaya has conjured up! Here is this infinite world, and what one claims as his possession will be left behind at death. Still men cannot understand this simple truth.




Sarada Devi quotes
Pray to God with tears in your eyes whenever you want illumination or find yourself faced with any doubt or difficulty. The Lord will remove all your impurities, assuage your mental anguish, and give you enlightenment.
Sarada Devi
Don't be afraid. Human birth is full of suffering and one has to endure everything patiently, taking the Name of God. None, not even God in human form can escape the sufferings of the body and mind.
Devi quotes
God is one's very own. It is the eternal relationship. He is everyone's own. One realizes Him in proportion to the intensity of one's feeling for Him.
Devi Sarada
Rebirth is inevitable so long as one has desires. It is like taking the soul from one pillow-case and putting it into another. Only one or two out of many men can be found who are free from all desires.
Devi Sarada quotes
Whether you jump into water or are pushed into it, your cloth will get drenched. Is it not so? Meditate every day, as your mind is yet immature. Constant meditation will make the mind one-pointed.
Sarada Devi
The creation itself is full of griefs. How can one understand joy if there is no sorrow? And how can everyone be happy at the same time?
Sarada Devi quotes
He who has really prayed to the Master, even once, has nothing to fear. By, praying to him constantly one gets ecstatic love (Prema Bhakti) through his grace.
Sarada Devi
The body means the existence of desire, otherwise it would not have existed. It all ends when one no longer has any desires. C84 In the Company of the Holy Mother. By Her Direct Disciples. Calcutta : Advaita Ashrama, 1980
Devi Sarada
My son, forbearance is a great virtue; there's no other like it.
