THE GOSPEL OF SRI RAMAKRISHNA | CHAPTER 31

What will you achieve by mere reasoning ?
Be restless for GOD and learn to LOVE GOD .

Reason , mere intellectual knowledge , is like one who can go only as far as the outer court of the house .

But LOVE is like one who goes into the inner court .

THE GOSPEL OF SRI RAMAKRISHNA | CHAPTER 31

Can one attain knowledge of GOD
by merely repeating the word GOD ?

There are two indications of such knowledge :

First , longing , that is to say , LOVE for GOD .

You may indulge in reasoning or discussion ,
but if you feel no longing or LOVE , it is all futile .

Second , the awakening of the Kundalini .

As long as the Kundalini remains asleep ,
you have not attained knowledge of GOD .

You may be spending hours pouring over books or discussing philosophy , but if you have no inner restlessness for GOD , you have no knowledge of GOD .

When the Kundalini is awakened ,
one attains Bhava , Bhakti , Prema , and so on .
