Sri RamaKrishna says a true devotee has faith in everything: the formless Reality, God with form

Once, while going to Kamarpukur, I was overtaken by a storm. I was in the middle of a big meadow. The place was haunted by robbers. I began to repeat the names of all the deities: Rama,Krishna and Bhagavati. I also repeated the name of Hanuman. I chanted the names of them all.

What does that mean? Let me tell you. While the servant is counting out the money to purchase supplies, he says, "These pennies for potatoes,these for egg plants, these for fish." He counts the money separately, but after the list is completed, he puts the coins together.

Is there anything impossible for faith? And a true devotee has faith in everything: the formless Reality, God with form, Rama, Krishna and the Divine Mother.
