Square Garden, NYC, NY-MY MASTER:
HIS LIFE AND TEACHINGS (CW 4:154-87) This day was the 60th birth anniversary of Sri Ramakrishna (lunar calendar)
The Indian nation cannot be killed. Deathless it stands, and it will stand so long as that spirit shall remain as the background, so long as her people do not give up their spirituality. Beggars they may remain, poor and poverty-stricken, dirt and squalor may surround them perhaps throughout all time, but let them not give up their God, let them not forget that they are the children of the sages....my Master's message to mankind is: "Be spiritual and realise truth for Yourself." ..To proclaim and make clear the fundamental unity underlying all religions was the mission of my Master. ..He left every religion undisturbed because he had realised that in reality they are all part and parcel of the one eternal religion.
