Shloka 61
You are standing under the wish-yielding tree and you are sad. Let us realise Lord Rama who is residing within us. Let us spread this theory of ‘Ram is everywhere’ amidst people. If we dont do this then we will feel sad in the future.

Shloka 62
We have forgotten our true self. We are intoxicated and therefore we feel sad. We are confused between happiness and sensual pleasures. We are so sad that we are losing determination of our mind.

Shloka 63
We have a wish-yielding cow at our home and we are begging for butter-milk. Our mind is not dwelling on Lord Rama. Our mind is busy in raking up debates. Let us not break a ‘ sorrow removing gem ‘ for the sake of many pieces of glass.

Shloka 64
A foolish person cannot have any power of discrimination. He who is always after sensual pleasures cannot hold Lord Rama in his heart. He who is greedy is bound to become sad. The one who is always after sensual pleasures is useless.

Shloka 65
Let us say no to the worthless existence devoid of devotion. He who is a fool is always two times sad. Let our mind have love and respect at the feet of Lord Rama. Let us not long for money always.

Shloka 66
Many things keep on happening around us. Let us try to find out the substance of such happenings. If our mind is made impure then we will not become peaceful and happy. Let us meditate on Lord Rama.

Shloka 67
Lord Rama is the ocean of beauty and good qualities. He has a great courage. He is serious in his work. His performance is great. He protects his devotees in their distress. Let us remember Lord Rama every morning.

Shloka 68
Lord Rama who is welding a bow in hand is very powerful. Even the terrible death shivers at his sight. We are petty in all regards. Let us remember Lord Rama every morning.

Shloka 69
Lord Rama creates bliss and relieves sorrows. Let us join others for collective devotion to Lord Rama. Let us shun bad action and jealousy.

Shloka 70
Let us always meditate on Lord Rama. Let us rise above the sensual pleasures. He who implements this concept is not affected by wordly troubles. Let us not be lazy.

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.
