Sri Ramakrishna on Theosophy

Surendra's Brother: "Sir, what do you think of Theosophy?"

Sri Ramakrishna: "I have heard that man can acquire superhuman powers through it and perform miracles. I saw a man who had brought a ghost under control. The ghost used to procure various things for his master. What shall I do with superhuman powers? Can one realize God through them? If God is not realized then everything becomes false."
