He was well known personality in last decade of 19th century and first decade of 20th century in Indian and America. He suddenly came into fame when he represented Hinduism at Parliament of Religions held in Chicago in 1893 . Saint Ramakrishna was his Guru later he founded “Ramakrishna Math” and “Ramakrishna Mission”.
His teaching has profound impact and gives deep understanding of life and its purpose. His thoughts will definitely make you feel inspired.
Most important thing is to apply these thoughts in your life in order to get maximum benefit from them. I can tell you the technique which I usually do.
Whenever I read a wonderful thought or quote, instantly I write it down on paper like sticky notes and stick it to my bulletin board. Then whenever I turn my eyes towards that bulletin I quickly read that quote , it goes on and on until that thought stick to my mind .
Guess what, by this time that quote/thought is set in mind so when I encounter any difficult situation or when I feel like demotivated , that quote instantly come into my mind and remind the message contain in it. That helps a lot to me to get back on my track or not to lose a focus.
Let’s take a look at the thoughts of one of the elite mind of history.
