Excerpted from the Gospel of Sri Ramakrishna, Page 206
The Master Said:
"They are indeed bound souls who constantly dwell with 'woman and gold'
and do not think of God even for a moment. How can you expect noble deeds
of them? They are like mangoes pecked by a crow, which may not be offered
to the Deity in the temple, and which even men hesitate to eat.
Bound souls, worldly people are like silk-worms. The worms can cut through
their cocoons if they want, but having woven the cocoons themselves,
they are too much attached to leave them. And so they die there."
