Belur Math | The Headquarters of Ramakrishna Math & Ramakrishna Mission


The Pure Atman is inactive and is the Witness of the three states. When I think of the acts of creation, preservation, and destruction, then I call the Pure Atman 'Isvara'. What is the Pure Atman like? It is like a magnet lying at a great distance from a needle. The needle moves, but the magnet lies motionless, inactive.

— Sri Ramakrishna
