A Interesting conversation between Ramkrishna Paramahansa & Swami Vivekananda


A rare conversation between
Ramkrishna Paramahansa & Swami Vivekananda

Please share with our next generation or read it loud to family, it's one of  the best message I have come across...

  • Swami Vivekananda:- I can’t find free time. Life has become hectic.
          Ramkrishna Paramahansa:- Activity gets you busy. But productivity gets you free.
  •  Swami Vivekananda:- Why has life become complicated now?
           Ramkrishna Paramahansa:- Stop analyzing life... It makes it complicated. Just live it.
  •  Swami Vivekananda:- Why are we then constantly unhappy?
           Ramkrishna Paramahansa:- Worrying has become your habit. That’s why you are not happy.
  • Swami Vivekananda:-Why do good people always suffer?
         Ramkrishna Paramahansa:- Diamond cannot be polished without friction.
         Gold cannot be purified without fire. Good people go through trials, but don’t suffer.
         With that experience their life becomes better, not bitter.
  • Swami Vivekananda:- You mean to say such experience is useful?
          Ramkrishna Paramahansa:- Yes. In every term, Experience is a hard teacher.
          She gives the test first and the lessons later.
  •  Swami Vivekananda:- Because of so many problems, we don’t know where we are heading…
           Ramkrishna Paramahansa:-If you look outside you will not know where you are heading.
           Look inside. Eyes provide sight. Heart provides the way.
  • Swami Vivekananda:-Does failure hurt more than moving in the right direction?
          Ramkrishna Paramahansa:- Success is a measure as decided by others.
          Satisfaction is a measure as decided by you.
  • Swami Vivekananda:- In tough times, how do you stay motivated?
         Ramkrishna Paramahansa:- Always look at how far you have come rather than how far
          you  have to go. Always count your blessing, not what you are missing.
  •  Swami Vivekananda:-What surprises you about people?
           Ramkrishna Paramahansa:- When they suffer they ask, "why me?" When they prosper,
          they never ask "Why me?"
  • Swami Vivekananda:- How can I get the best out of life?
          Ramkrishna Paramahansa:- Face your past without regret. Handle your present
           with confidence. Prepare for the future without fear.
  • Swami Vivekananda:- One last question. Sometimes I feel my prayers are not answered.
         Ramkrishna Paramahansa:- There are no unanswered prayers. Keep the faith and drop the
         fear. Life is a mystery to solve, not a problem to resolve. Trust me. Life is wonderful if 
         you know how to live.
