Mother, everyone says, ‘My watch alone is right.’ The Christians, the Brahmos, the Hindus, the Mussalmans, all say, “My religion alone is true.’ But, Mother, the fact is that nobody’s watch is right. Who can truly understand thee? But if a man prays to Thee with a yearning heart, he can reach Thee, through Thy grace, by any path.
(p.93, The Gospel of Sri Ramakrishna, Thakur’s words to the Divine Mother Kali at Dakshineswar sitting on the steps of Shiva temples along with M on 11 March, 1882.)
In the scriptures, you will find the way to realize God. But after getting all the information about the path, you must begin to work. Only then can you attain the goal.
(p.729, The Gospel of Sri Ramakrishna, Thakur’s words to the devotees in Balaram Bose’s house on 11 March ,1885.)
