Swami Brahmananda Quotes




Brahmananda (21 January 1863 – 10 April 1922), born Rakhal Chandra Ghosh , was one of the direct disciples of Ramakrishna and the first president of the Ramakrishna Math and Ramakrishna Mission. He was born in Sikra Kulingram near Basirhat, Kolkata. Ramakrishna recognised him as his ‘spiritual son’. He became the first president of the mission. Known as “Raja Maharaj” (chief administrator), he was largely responsible for the initial development of the mission, which was remiss due to the death of Vivekananda.

— Swami Brahmananda, Precepts for Perfection

The more you meditate on God,the better will be your understanding of holy books.To hear about knowledge of God is one thing,to live in God is another.But the knowledge acqured through realization is different from both.
