RAMAKRISHNA : LIFE & SAYINGS | MAX MULLER
|| SWEET HARI ||
Devotional practices are necessary only so long as tears of ecstasy do not flow at hearing the name of HARI < : GOD , OMniPresent ALL-Pervading , Destroyer of Ignorance : > .
One needs no devotional practices whose heart is moved to tears at the mere mention of the name of HARI .
One who finds all the hairs of the body standing on end at the bare mention of Sri HARI's name , through sheer ecstasy , and who sheds tears of Love on hearing the name of GOD , has reached the last birth .
If thou wishest to see GOD , have firm faith in the efficacy of repeating the name of HARI and try to discriminate the real from the unreal .
Chant forth the sweet name of HARI , keeping time all the while by clapping your hands , then you will acquire mental concentration .
If you clap your hands , sitting under a tree , the birds on the boughs thereof will fly away in all directions , and when you chant forth the name of HARI and clap your hands , all evil thoughts will fly away from your mind .
THE GOSPEL OF SRI RAMAKRISHNA | CHAPTER 32
When you find that the very mention of GOD's name brings tears to your eyes and makes your hair stand on end , then you will know that you have freed yourself from worldly attachment and attained GOD .

|| SWEET HARI ||
How long will you cling to those toys of names and forms ?
Yes , you must give up one after another , all your pet prejudices , possessions , clingings , attachments .
Your possessions possess and obsess you . You cannot fence out anybody without first fencing in yourself .
Hidden in this painful Stripping Robbery lies the treasure of Blissful Success .
The dearest name of GOD to Rama is HARI which literally means the Robber .
O Sweet HARI !
Some might object . " Oh ! If I Love and yield to the foe , one will eat me up . "
Rama says , " O you deluded cheat , did you ever really try the experiment ? "
