Excerpted from the Gospel of Sri Ramakrishna, Page 189
The Master Said:
"Ordinary people do not recognize the advent of an Incarnation of God.
He comes in secret. Only a few of His intimate disciples can recognize Him.
That RAma was both Brahman Absolute and a perfect Incarnation
of God in human form was known only to twelve rishis.
The other sages said to Him,
'RAma, we know you only as Dasaratha's son'."
