Excerpted from the Gospel of Sri Ramakrishna p.726
The Master Said:
"The mind and intellect become pure the moment
they are free from attachment to 'woman and gold'.
The pure mind and pure intellect are one and the same.
God can be known by the pure mind.
Didn't the sages and seers of olden times see God?
They realized the all-pervading Consciousness
by means of their inner consciousness."
