Sri Sarada Devi promoted the education and economic independence of women. Her last message - 'If you want peace of mind, do not find fault with others, rather see your own weaknesses and rectify them. None is a stranger, my child. The whole world is your own!' - is a typical reflection of her own immaculate life. Through her example of unconditional love, she teaches us that we can love all of God's creation, including plants and animals. Sri Sarada Devi's life and teachings demonstrate the ideal of the universal motherhood of God.

Wisdom from Sri Sarada Devi

  • As the wind removes a cloud, so does the name of God disperse the cloud of worldliness.
  • As you smell the fragrance of a flower by handing it or the smell of sandalwood by rubbing it against a stone, so you obtain spiritual awakening by constantly thinking of God.
  • One must be patient like the earth. What iniquities are being perpetuated on her! Yet she quietly endures them all.
  • You see, my son, it is not a fact that you will never face danger. Difficulties always come, but they do not last forever. You will see that they pass away like water under a bridge.
  • Don't be afraid. Human birth is full of sssuffering and one has to endure everything patiently, taking the name of God. None, not even God in human form, can escape the sufferings of body and mind. 
I tell you one thing my child -- if you want peace, do not find fault with others. Rather, see your own faults. Learn to make the world your own. No one is a stranger, my child; the whole world is your own.
