Excerpted from the Gospel of Sri Ramakrishna p.1O8
The Master Said:
"There is gold buried in your heart, but you are not yet
aware of it. It is covered with a thin layer of clay.
Once you are aware of it, all these activities of yours
will lessen. After the birth of her child, the daughter-in-law
in the family busies herself with it alone.
Everything she does is only for the child.
Her mother-in-law doesn't let her do any household duties."
