– Extract from the Gospel of Sri Ramakrishna (Chapter 6: The Master with the Brahmo Devotees)
God is realized by following the path of truth. One should always chant His name. Even while one is performing one’s duties, the mind should be left with God. Suppose I have a carbuncle on my back. I perform my duties, but the mind is drawn to the carbuncle.
It is good to repeat the name of Rama. ‘The same Rama who was the son of King Dasaratha has created this world. Again, as Spirit, He pervades all beings. He is very near us; He is both within and without.”
