6 Ramakrishna Quotes on TRUTH

"It is said that truthfulness alone constitutes
the spiritual discipline of the Kaliyuga.
If a man clings tenaciously to truth
he ultimately realizes God."

"Men may be divided into four classes;
those bound by the fetters of the world,
the seekers after liberation, the liberated and the ever-free.
Among the ever-free we may count sages like NArada.
They live in the world for the good of others,
to teach men spiritual truth."

"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."

"I tell you the truth: there is nothing wrong
with your being in the world. But you must direct
your mind toward God; otherwise you will not succeed.
Do your duty with one hand and with the other hold to God.
After the duty is over, you will hold to God with both hands."

"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."

"God can be realized through all paths. All religions are true.
The important thing is to reach the roof. You can reach it by stone stairs
or by wooden stairs or by bamboo steps or by a rope.
You can also climb up by a bamboo pole."

"If a man clings tenaciously to truth he ultimately realizes God.
Without this regard for truth he 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.

After my vision of the Divine Mother, I prayed to Her,
taking a flower in my hand:

'Mother, here is Thy knowledge and here is Thy ignorance.
Take them both and give me only pure love.
Here is Thy holiness and here is Thy unholiness.
Take them both, Mother, and give me pure love.
Here is Thy good and here is Thy evil.
Take them both, Mother, and give me pure love.
Here is Thy righteousness and here is Thy unrighteousness.
Take them both, Mother, and give me pure love'.
I mentioned all these, but I could not say:
'Mother, here is Thy truth and here is Thy falsehood. Take them both'.

I gave up everything at Her Feet,
but could not bring myself to give up truth".
