Advice For Householders !

Devotee— We are householders. Kindly advise us.

Sri Ramakrishna — keep one of your hands at His lotus feet and attend to your worldly work with the other.

Devotee— Sir, is this world illusory?

Sri Ramakrishna — It is illusory until you know God. The man forgets Him and utters, ‘Mine, mine.’ Bound by maya, deluded by ‘woman and gold,’ he goes down and down. The man has lost his consciousness while entangled in maya. He cannot run out of it even when there is a way.
