„Beware of these powers, and desire them not.“

—  Ramakrishna
Context: Visit not miracle-mongers and those who exhibit occult powers. These men are stragglers from the path of Truth. Their minds have become entangled in psychic powers, which are like veritable meshes in the way of the pilgrim to Brahman. Beware of these powers, and desire them not. p. 372

„It's enough to have faith in one aspect of God.“

—  Ramakrishna
Context: It's enough to have faith in one aspect of God. You have faith in God without form. That is very good. But never get into your head that your faith alone is true and every other is false. Know for certain that God without form is real and that God with form is also real. Then hold fast to whichever faith appeals to you. As quoted in Ramakrishna and His Disciples (1965) by Christopher Isherwood, p. 263

„God is one, but He is worshipped in different ages and climes under different names and aspects.“

—  Ramakrishna
Context: In a potter's shop there are vessels of different shapes and forms — pots, jars, dishes, plates, etc., — but all are made of the same clay. So God is one, but He is worshipped in different ages and climes under different names and aspects. p. 458

„The mind of a yogi is under his control; he is not under the control of his mind.“

—  Ramakrishna
Context: It is not good for ordinary people to say, "I am He." The waves belong to the water. Does the water belong to the waves? The upshot of the whole thing is that, no matter what path you follow, yoga is impossible unless the mind becomes quiet. The mind of a yogi is under his control; he is not under the control of his mind. p. 248

„Meditate upon the Knowledge and Bliss Eternal, and you will also have bliss.“

—  Ramakrishna
Context: Meditate upon the Knowledge and Bliss Eternal, and you will also have bliss. The Bliss indeed is eternal, only it is covered and obscured by ignorance. The less your attachment is towards the senses, the more will be your love towards God. As quoted in Hindu Psychology : Its Meaning for the West (1946) by Swami Akhilananda, p. 204 Variant translation: Meditate upon the Knowledge and Bliss Eternal, and you also will have bliss. Bliss indeed is eternal, only it is covered and obscured by ignorance. The less your attachment is to the senses, the more will be your love to God. Saying 806, in Teachings of Sri Ramakrishna (1948) edited by Swami Vireswarananda
