Excerpted from the Gospel of Sri Ramakrishna p.174
The Master Said:
"God doesn't appear easily in the heart of a man who feels
himself to be his own master. But God can be seen the moment
His grace descends. He is the Sun of Knowledge.
One single ray of His has illumined the world with the
light of knowledge. That is how we are able to see one
another and acquire varied knowledge.
One can see God only if He turns His light toward His own face."
