Fate acts only through the intellect, mind and the sense of ‘I’ (ego). On the one who relies not on his own intellect, but on the Lord’s intelligence, and surrenders his mind to the Lord, and puts ‘God’ in the place of ‘I’, fate has no impact, akin to hitting a dead snake!

~HH Sri Sri Muralidhara Swamiji

The Lord knows how, through whom, and when, a work has to be done. We should learn to live happily, placing all our burdens at His Holy Feet.

~HH Sri Sri Muralidhara Swamiji

A person who works for a wealthy man is relaxed with the thought that the employer would take care of all his needs, be it his daughter’s marriage or son’s education. He enjoys a sense of security in the mere thought, “My master will take care of me!” But it is indeed a pity that we, who have come to the omnipotent Sri Vasudeva do not hold on to Him and lead a carefree life.

~HH Sri Sri Muralidhara Swamiji

Oh Krishna! Neither am I aware of the meaning of the words jnana, vairagya, bhakti, advaita, vishishtadvaita, dvaita, liberation, vaikunta and self-realization, nor am I bothered about them! The only one I know is You! It is up to You to see that I experience the Ultimate!
