Excerpted from the Gospel of Sri Ramakrishna p.158
The Master Said:
"I have heard that man can acquire superhuman powers
through Theosophy and perform miracles.
I saw a man who had brought a ghost under control.
The ghost used to procure various things for his master.
What shall I do with superhuman powers?
Can one realize God through them?
If God is not realized then everything becomes false."
