Only one thing has never been defiled by the tongue of mankind, and that is Brahman itself – Sri Ramakrishna Paramahamsa

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 also God is one, but He is worshipped in different ages and places under different names and aspects.

God is in all humans but all humans are not in God; that is the reason they suffer.

The blessed one who has beheld the vision divine, becomes like a child – simple, open – turning his eye upon the fresh world as it is, stripped of its artificial names and formulas. Often he is intoxicated with divine love at the sight of the revelation before him. He is one with the living fountain of holiness.

Only one thing has never been defiled by the tongue of mankind, and that is Brahman itself. There are defects in every religion, but it is God who maintains them there and it is God who also removes them in time.
