Ramakrishna: The Nectar of Eternal Bliss, Ch. 1: How Can She Stay Away?
Class 2: Ch. 1, p.28
Call, oh my mind, with a real cry.
If you do, can the Divine Mother, Kali, stay far away?
How will She stay far away from a true devotee?
How can She stay away from someone
who calls with sincerity in their heart?
If your mind is in a lonely place,
exclusively devoted to Her,
and in your heart you are placing hibiscus flowers
and sandal paste at Mother’s feet,
Mother cannot be far from you.
