Courtyard Book Club -- A Practical Teaching of Vedanta

From pages 14-15 of my edition of the Gospel of Holy Mother:

The old lady (who was visiting Mother) said, "Sri Ramakrishna gave us many instructions. But we have carried out very few of them. Had we followed his advice, we would not have suffered so much in world. We are attached to the world and are are always running after this or that work."

[Sound familiar?]

The Mother said, replying, "On must do some work. Through work alone can one remove the bandage of work, not by avoiding work. Total detachment comes later on. One should not be without work even for a moment."

[Comments? How might this be?]
