On 2nd January 1899, the monastery was moved from the rented Nilambar Mukherji’s house to Belur Math.
(p.148, God Lived with Them)
One should not harbor malice towards any person or opinion…A devotee can know everything when God’s grace descends on him. If you but realize Him, you will be able to know all about Him. Constantly you have to chant the name and glories of God and give up worldly thoughts as much as you can. You will feel restless for God when your heart becomes pure and your mind free from attachment to the things of the world. Then alone will your prayer reach God. The thing is that one must love God. Through intense love one attains the vision of Him. The attraction of the husband for the chaste wife, the attraction of the child for its mother, the attraction of worldly possessions for the worldly man – when a man can blend these three into one, and direct it all to God, then he gets the vision of God.
(p.374, The Gospel of Sri Ramakrishna, Sri Ramakrishna’s advice to Jaygopal Sen on 2nd January 1884)
