Excerpted from the Gospel of Sri Ramakrishna p.149
The Master Said:
"One who constantly thinks of God can know His real nature;
he alone knows that God reveals Himself to seekers
in various forms and aspects. God has attributes;
then again He has none. Only the man who lives
under the tree knows that the chameleon can appear
in various colours, and he knows further,
that the animal at times has no colour at all.
It is the others who suffer the agony of futile argument."
