Faith is Life … Doubt death

Table of Contents

“A man wanted to cross the river. A sage gave him an amulet and said, This will carry thee across.’ The man, taking it in his hand, began to walk over the waters. When he reached the middle of the river curiosity entered into his heart, and he opened the amulet to see what was in it. Therein he found, written on a bit of paper, the sacred name of Râma. The man at this said deprecatingly, Is this the only secret?’ No sooner had he said this than he sank down. It is faith in the name of the Lord that works miracles, for faith is life, and doubt is death.”

~ Ramakrishna Paramhansa
