Deep Secret Of The Jnani And The Bhakta !

(To Mahima) You may talk of Vedanta a thousand times to a genuine bhakta and call the world like a dream before him, his devotion will not vanish. He may shed it a little for a while. A pestle was lying in a field of willows; it resulted in musalam kulanashnam (the pestle destroying the dynasty). One becomes a jnani when one is born of Shiva. His mind always goes to this knowledge.

'Only Brahman is the reality, the world an illusion'. If one is born of Vishnu, one possesses prema bhakti loving devotion. This prema bhakti does not leave you easily. Upon reasoning even if this prema bhakti is diluted, it returns gushing forth after a time just as the pestle destroyed the dynasty of the Yadus.

~Gospel of Sri RamaKrishna
