"All right. You have faith."

Nama Article 5th October 2012

Source: The Gospel of Sri Ramakrishna


GIRISH: "Please bless me, sir."

MASTER: "Have faith in the Divine Mother and you will attain every thing."

GIRISH: "But I am a sinner."

MASTER: "The wretch who constantly harps on sin becomes a sinner."

GIRISH: "Sir, the very ground where I used to sit would become unholy."

MASTER: "How can you say that? Suppose a light is brought into a room that has been

dark a thousand years; does it illumine the room little by little, or all in a flash?"

GIRISH: "Then you have blessed me."

MASTER: "If you sincerely believe it. What more shall I say? I eat and drink and chant the name of God."

GIRISH: "I have no sincerity. Please give it to me."

MASTER: "I? Sages like Narada and Sukadeva could have done that."

GIRISH: "I don't see Narada and Sukadeva . 'But you are here before me."

MASTER (smiling): "All right. You have faith."


Please check these: Excerpts from a discourse by our Sri Sri Muralidhara Swamiji


It is not enough if you have faith in God but you should have faith in yourself; the faith that you would see God


Faith is even greater than God.......Unshakable faith and patience are the two coins that one should offer to Guru as offering


Once you acquire faith, your work is done. There is nothing higher than faith


If we call out His Name with complete faith, Krishna will certainly appear before us.


Power of Faith! Story of a Hunter, who ceaselessly with a single pointed focus, with all other thoughts removed from mind, had the vision of Lord.


Faith is more powerful than knowledge


When a trouble befalls you, it is only to test your faith. Win over it by your faith on God. He will never let you down.


Vibhishana who held faith He was Rama! Ravana who did not He was Yama!


The way – Faith


the man without faith (is ruined and) comes back to this transmigratory cycle again and again" ...Bhagavad Gita

Our faith in the living God is to be measured by the extent of freedom from anxiety of any kind whatsoever.
