Ramakrishna - Hymns of Ramakrishna - O, Mother, what a machine is this
Type of Spiritual Experience
A description of the experience
From Hymns of Ramakrishna
O, Mother, what a machine is this that Thou hast made?
What pranks Thou playest with this toy
Three and a half cubits high!
Hiding thyself within, Thou holdest the guiding string;
But the machine, not knowing it
Still believes it moves by itself
Whoever finds the Mother remains a machine no more
