Shloka 1
God Ganesh, the god of all virtues and to whom the spirit owes its origin; Goddess Sharda, the goddess of speech; we bow to them. Now we will explore the way to reach Lord Rama which is considered as infinite.

Shloka 2
Let us follow the path of honesty and devotion. This path will lead us to Shri Hari. Let us shun everything that is condemned and do everything that is commendable with the full devotion of mind.

Shloka 3
Let us remember Lord Rama every morning. Let us start all our work by chanting Shri Ram. Let us always stick to the good behaviour. Only the person of good action is held in esteem in this world.

Shloka 4
Our evil desires are of no use. Sinful thoughts should not come to our mind. We should always have ethics. We should always know the real truth in our mind.

Shloka 5
Let us shun all sinful plans. Let us work on the plan that will lead us to the truth. Let us not always think about sensual pleasures. If our mind gets corrupted then we lose our reputation amidst people.

Shloka 6
Let us say no to anger which makes us feel sorry. Let us not corrupt our mind with all sorts of desires. Let us shun the doership of actions. Let us not praise ourselves due to the jealousy for others.

Shloka 7
Let us have great patience. Let us bear the evil words spoken to us. Let us always speak politely. Let us always understand others.

Shloka 8
Let us do something so that our good name remains even after perishing of our body. Let us do all good actions honestly. Let us wear out like sandalwood. Let others receive benefit out of our sufferings.

Shloka 9
Let us not keep an eye on others money. Selfishness adds to our sins. Let us avoid actions that will lead to incurring sin. We will always feel sad if we have lot of expectations.

Shloka 10
Let us always have love for Rama. Let us remove sadness from mind. We should learn to consider the sufferings that our body undergoes for good cause as happiness. We should always have knowledge of our true self in our mind.

In the 17th century, a very famous Saint, Samartha Ramdas Swami, wrote a small book containing 205 verses.
The name of the book, written in the Marathi language is “Shri Manache Shloka” (श्री मनाचे श्लोक) — which means “A Dialogue With Our Mind.”

Samarth Ramdas Swami teaches us how our mind is our friend, our enemy, and how it can be our Guru. It advises ethical behavior and love for God.
