Truth, Sri Ramakrishna

  1. 1. Dr.T.V.Rao MD<br />TRUTHSri Ramakrishna Quotes on Truth<br />Dr.T.V.Rao MD<br />1<br />
  2. 2. Live in the world like an ant. The world contains a mixture of truth and untruth, sugar and sand. Be an ant and take the sugar.<br />Live like an ant<br />Dr.T.V.Rao MD<br />2<br />
  3. 3. Even those engaged in worldly activities, such as office work or business, should hold to the truth. Truthfulness alone is the spiritual discipline in the Kaliyuga.<br />Truthfulness saves in Kaliyuga<br />Dr.T.V.Rao MD<br />3<br />
  4. 4. If a man holds to truth he will certainly realize God.<br />The world is indeed a mixture of truth and make-believe. Discard the make believe and take the truth.<br />Truth is reality – accept truth<br />Dr.T.V.Rao MD<br />4<br />
  5. 5. The feeling of ego has covered the Truth. Narendra once said, 'As the "I" of man recedes, the "I" of God approaches.' Kedar says, 'The more clay there is in the jar, the less water it holds.'.<br />Less of I makes more of god<br />Dr.T.V.Rao MD<br />5<br />
  6. 6. The path of knowledge leads to Truth, as does the path that combines knowledge and love. The path of love, too, leads to this goal. The way of love is as true as the way of knowledge. All paths ultimately lead to the same Truth. But as long as God keeps the feeling of ego in us, it is easier to follow the path of love<br />Path of knowledge leads to truth <br />Dr.T.V.Rao MD<br />6<br />
  7. 7. The Truth established in the Vedas, the Puranas, and the Tantras is but one Satchidananda. In the Vedas It is called Brahman, in the Puranas It is called Krishna, Rama, and so on, and in the Tantras It is called Siva. The one Satchidananda is called Brahman, Krishna, and Siva.<br />Accept truth – it is Satchidananda<br />Dr.T.V.Rao MD<br />7<br />
  8. 8. If a man leads a householder's life he must have unflagging devotion to truth. God can be realized through truth alone.<br />God realization possible through practice of truth<br />Dr.T.V.Rao MD<br />8<br />
  9. 9. The feeling of 'I and mine' has covered the Reality. Because of this we do not see Truth. Attainment of Chaitanya, Divine Consciousness, is not possible without the knowledge of Advaita, Non-duality. After realizing Chaitanya one enjoys Nityananda, Eternal Bliss. One enjoys this Bliss after attaining the state of a paramahamsa.<br />Divine consciousness possible through Advaita<br />Dr.T.V.Rao MD<br />9<br />
  10. 10. It is said that truthfulness alone constitutes the spiritual discipline of the Kaliyuga. If a man clings tenaciously to truth he ultimately realizes God. Without this regard for truth, one gradually loses everything. If by chance I say that I will go to the pine-grove, I must go there even if there is no further need of it, lest I lose my attachment to truth.<br />Truthfulness leads to realization of god<br />Dr.T.V.Rao MD<br />10<br />
  11. 11. Truthfulness in speech is the tapasya of the Kaliyuga. It is difficult to practice other austerities in this cycle. By adhering to truth one attains God.<br />truthfulness is tapasya<br />Dr.T.V.Rao MD<br />11<br />
  12. 12. Truth is one; only It is called by different names. All people are seeking the same Truth; the variance is due to climate, temperament, and name. A lake has many Ghats. From one ghat the Hindus take water in jars and call it 'jal'. From another ghat the Mussalmans take water in leather bags and call it 'pani'. From a third the Christians take the same thing and call it 'water'.<br />Truth is one only – religions are many<br />Dr.T.V.Rao MD<br />12<br />
  13. 13. The human life is a struggle to live, The more truthful you are to life more struggles hunt you, However he can alone guide when you have true faith in Him <br />Dr.T.V.Rao MD<br />Have true faith in him<br />Dr.T.V.Rao MD<br />13<br />
