There are many people in this world who claim to be sadhus and saints. In this dark time, how are we to recognize the true teachers from the fakes?
When a disciple of Shree Ramakrishna asked, “How can one recognize a true sadhu?” Shree Ramakrishna said, “They are real if they know that God resides in every atom of existence, and therefore serve all of creation. Those who have dedicated their mind, their vital force, and their life to the attainment of God are the true sadhus.”
These words can guide us in our search for the divine beings living among us all.
