Excerpted from the Gospel of Sri Ramakrishna p.169
The Master Said:
"Money is also a great upAdhi. The possesion of money
makes such a difference in a man!
He is no longer the same person.
A frog had a rupee, which he kept in his hole.
One day an elephant was going over the hole,
and the frog, coming out in a fit of anger,
raised his foot, as if to kick the elephant,
and said, 'How dare you walk over my head?'
Such is the pride that money begets."
