Need for holy company

Devotee: what is the good of holy company?

Sri RamaKrishna: It begins yearning for God. It begins Love of God.
Nothing whatsoever is achieved in spiritual life without yearning. By constantly living in the company of Holy men, the soul become restless for God… there is another benefit from holy company. It helps one to cultivate discrimination between the Real and the unreal.
God alone is the Real, That is to say, the eternal substance, and the world is unreal
