Through prayer all individual souls can be united to the Supreme Soul – Sri Ramakrishna

Everyone can attain Knowledge. There are two entities: Jivatma, the individual soul, and Paramatma, the Supreme Soul. Through prayer all individual souls can be united to the Supreme Soul.

A man living in society should make a show of anger to protect himself from evil-minded people. But he should not harm anybody in anticipation of harm likely to be done to him.

One man may read the Bhagavata by the light of a lamp, and another may commit forgery by that very light; but the lamp is unaffected.
The sun sheds its light on the wicked as well as on the virtuous.
– Sri Ramakrishna
