"Many are the names of God and infinite the forms that lead us to know Him. In whatsoever name or form you desire to call Him, in that very form and name you will see Him."
"The mind of a sage, even when angered, is never perturbed. Can a man heat the waters of the sea with a lighted straw?"
There's no greater enemy than pride.
Knowledge overcomes ignorance as sunlight darkness. Atmabodha Prakasika
The Spirit is in contact with matter without being contaminated by it, just as the crystal permits the colour of the cloth to be seen through it without being in any way defiled by it.
As the sun is not sullied by the defects of external objects, so the inner soul of all beings is not sullied by the misery of the world.

Man sees just the present, God all things

knows that God is the doer and he is the non-doer. Sri Ramakrishna
This world is only one drop in an infinite ocean, one link in an infinite chain.
