Sri Ramakrishna: an image of transcendence.....

The Master's photograph reveals an image of transcendence of all the six chakras (centres of consciousness)... I see many things in it and so I talk about them.

Invoke the Master mentally with all your heart. Surrender yourself completely to him. And that is all what is needed. He will do what he thinks is good for us. p.43

To invoke the Master means imbibing some of his virtues. When a man thinks intently about someone else, he comes to acquire some of the virtues of the latter.

The Master himself said, 'You should meditate on this picture of mine and that will do.' By invoking the Master one can have so many visions of light. But he must be invoked heart and soul. He is the light of the world - self-revealing and all-pervading. His manifestations are everywhere.

The purer a person is, the more will the Master reveal himself to him.
