Excerpted from the Gospel of Sri Ramakrishna p.155
The Master Said:
"Man may be likened to grain. He has fallen between
the millstones and is about to be crushed.
Only the few grains that stay near the peg escape.
Therefore men should take refuge at the peg,
that is to say, in God. Call on Him. Sing His name.
Then you will be free. Otherwise you will be crushed
by the King of Death."
