Those who give themselves up to the Lord do more for the world than all the so-called workers. One man who has purified himself thoroughly accomplishes more than a regiment of preachers. Out of purity and silence comes the word of power.
(p.16, V.7, Complete Works of Swami Vivekananda, Inspired Talks)
God was born in this age as Ramakrishna. Come and take refuge in him. Repeat his name again and again. Study his life, and continually speak of his greatness. He manifested himself in a special way in Swami Vivekananda. Study his character and his works. And do as best as you can the work that he liked. This will do you much good. Given these conditions, you will have no reason to worry about your salvation.
(p.227, Letters for Spiritual Seekers, Mahapurush Maharaj’s letter from Belur Mathm on 26 June, 1923.)
