The establishment of Dharma (righteousness) is my aim. The teaching of Dharma, the spread of Dharma, that is My object. These miracles as you call them are just a means towards that end. Some of you remark that Ramakrishna Paramahamsa said that siddhis or yogic powers are obstructions in the path of a sadhaka. Siddhis may lead the sadhaka (spiritual aspirant) astray. His ego will bring him down if he yields to the temptation of demonstrating his yogic powers... The mistake lies in equating me with a sadhaka. These siddhis or yogic powers are just in the nature of the Avatar - the creation of things with intent to protect and to give joy as a spontaneous and lasting creation.
