[2nd President and Spiritual Head: the Ramakrishna Centre of South Africa]
[now a Centre of the international Ramakrishna Math and Ramakrishna Mission]
Selected from Mother Radha's recordings of Swamiji.
The whole thing in spiritual life is to intensely yearn for God. You will really know that you are making progress through intense sadhana [spiritual practice] when your mind wants Him and Him alone.
Yes, when you want Him alone, you will get miserable - but you will not make other people's lives miserable. If you make other people's lives miserable, then you are running after many things. That is Maya [the divine power of illusion, delusion].
Yearn for God and God alone.
