Sri Ramakrishna Paramahamsa Teachings

The human body is like a boiling pot, and the mind and the senses are like water, rice or potato, and other things in it. Put the pot with its ingredients on the fire; it will be so hot as to burn your finger when you touch it. But the heat does not belong to the pot, nor anything contained in it, but is in the fire. So it is the fire of Brahman in man that causes the mind and the senses to perform their functions, and when that fire cease to act, the sense also, or the organs, stop.

A logician once asked Sri Ramakrishna Paramahamsa ‘What are knowledge, knower and the object known?’ To which he replied. ‘Good man, I do not know all these niceties of scholastic learning. I know only my Mother Divine and that I am her son.’ (Source: Ramakrishna His Life and Sayings, F. Max Muller, Page 120)
