THE GOSPEL OF SRI RAMAKRISHNA | CHAPTER 3

One cannot have Knowledge of BRAHMAN so long as there is the slightest trace of worldliness .

How hard the Rishis laboured !

Early in the morning they would go away from the hermitage , and would spend the whole day in solitude , meditating on BRAHMAN .

At night they would return to the hermitage and eat a little fruit or roots .

They kept their mind aloof from the objects of sight , hearing , touch , and other things of a worldly nature .

Only thus did they realize BRAHMAN as their own " inner " Consciousness .
