Parables from The Gospel of Sri Ramakrishna
How are we to know God?
Ramakrishna teaches that by constantly trying to remember Him, we go nearer to God. How is this possible, when we have so many things to do in the world ?
Ramakrishna gave this example: ‘Well, haven’t you seen village girls carrying so many pots of water on their heads and returning home? They chat and giggle all their way. They talk about their family affairs, gossip about their neighbours, but their attention is all the time on the jars. They see that these do not fall off their heads. Similarly, one who wants God should always keep his mind on Him.’
