This is our Daily Sri Ramakrishna Quote:

Friday 1/11/19

The Master Said:

"When you plunge in the water of the ocean,
you may be attacked by alligators.
But they won't touch you if your body is smeared with Turmeric.
There are no doubt six alligators - lust, anger, avarice,
and so on - within you, in the 'heart's fathomless depths'.
But protect yourself with the turmeric of discrimination
and renunciation, and they won't touch you."
