Sri Ramakrishna’s main teachings are:
God realization is the ultimate goal
of human life as that alone can bring
man supreme happiness and peace.
God is one, and is known by different
names in different religions and sects.
God can be realized through various
paths taught in world religions. All
religions are true in so far as they
lead to the realization of the Ultimate
Truth. God dwells in all people and
so everyone, without the distinction
of caste, creed or race, should be
treated with respect and
served with love.
