God is the Kalpataru, the Wish-fulfilling Tree. You will certainly get whatever you ask of Him. But you must pray standing near the Kalpataru. Only then will your prayer be fulfilled. A man gets the fulfillment of the desire he cherishes while practicing sadhana. As one thinks, so one receives.
(p..481,The Gospel of Sri Ramakrishna)
Do not say, ‘You are bad’; say only, ‘You are good , but be better.’
(p.22, V.7, Complete Works of Swami Vivekananda, Inspired Talks)
When you worship with love, you do not have to make it elaborate. Finish your worship and then recite some hymns, sing some songs, and repeat the Lord’s name as much as you can. Follow this procedure. Your life will be blessed.
(p.152, Letters for Spiritual Seekers, Mahapurush Maharaj’s letter from Belur Math on 30 June, 1910)
