Daily Sri Ramakrishna Quote


This is our Daily Sri Ramakrishna Quote:

Excerpted from the Gospel of Sri Ramakrishna p.169

Sunday 14/1/18

The Master Said:

"Each upAdhi [limitation imposed through ignorance] changes
man's nature. If he wears a fine black-bordered cloth,
you will at once find him humming
Nadhu Babu's love-songs.
Then playing-cards and a walking-stick follow.
If even a sickly man puts on high boots,
he begins to whistle and climb the stairs
like an Englishman, jumping from one step to another.
If a man but holds a pen in in his hand,
he scribbles on any paper he can get hold of -
such is the power of the pen!"
