Excerpted from the Gospel of Sri Ramakrishna p.243
The Master Said:
"There are two schools of thought: the VedAnta and the PurAna.
According to the VedAnta this world is a 'framework of illusion',
that is to say, it is all illusory, like a dream.
But according to the PurAna, the books of devotion,
God Himself has become the twenty-four cosmic principles.
Worship God both within and without."
