Excerpted from the Gospel of Sri Ramakrishna p.137
The Master Said:
"I tell you the truth: there is nothing wrong
with your being in the world. But you must direct
your mind toward God; otherwise you will not succeed.
Do your duty with one hand and with the other hold to God.
After the duty is over, you will hold to God with both hands."
