The Pure In Heart See God !

"Let me tell you one thing. God can be seen. The Vedas say that God is beyond mind and speech. The meaning of this is that God is unknown to the mind attached to worldly objects. Vaishnavcharan (a noted devotee of the Vaishnava sect and an admirer of Sri Ramakrishna) used to say, 'God is known by the mind and intellect that is pure.' Therefore it is necessary to seek the company of holy men, practice prayer, and listen to the instruction of the guru. These purify the mind. Then one sees God. Dirt can be removed from water by a purifying agent. Then one sees one's reflection in it. One cannot see one's face in a mirror if the mirror is covered with dirt."

~Gospel of Sri Ramakrishna
