Manliness and Sri Ramakrishna

on Friday, August 05, 2011

One day Surendra Nath Mitra heard the Master (Sri Ramakrishna) saying to a devotee, "A little manliness is necessary for everybody". 

Thereupon he thought, "But this is my disease, and Lord save me from it!". 

Sri Ramakrishna at once remarked , "I do not mean that struggle for pleasure which only debases a man and which even animals have. You must have the manliness of Arjuna to stick to an ideal up to the last breath of your life".
