Without practicing the discipline laid down by Rama to purify the mind, all else is mere show, empty rituals. Sri Sathya Sai Baba
I am the wind among the purifiers, and Lord Rama among the warriors. Shri Krishna
May the Virtue and wisdom of Lord Rama You inspired and help you reach your goals Have a blessed Ram Navami.
What, however, left a deep impression on me was the reading of the Ramayana before my father. During part of his illness my father was in Porbandar. There every evening he used to listen to the Ramayana. Mahatma Gandhi
Rama Nama should come from the heart. In that event, Rama Nama could become an effective remedy against all ailments. A man who believes in Rama Nama would not make a fetish of the body but would regard it as a means of serving God. And for making it into a fit instrument for that purpose, Rama Nama is the sovereign means. To install Rama Nama in the heart requires infinite patience. It might even take ages. But the effort is worthwhile. Rama Nama cannot come from the heart unless one has cultivated the virtues of truth, honesty and purity within and without. Mahatma Gandhi
