13.19 Birbal was the jester at the court of the great emperor

Akbar. One day the emperor asked him, “Is your mother free from

lust?”SoBirbalwenttohismothertogettheanswer.Shegavehima

box with ashes which he was to bring to the emperor. Akbar under-

stood her meaning and was highly pleased with her answer. Swami

Brahmananda once told me, “My boy, if you give yourself to the

world,youryouth,beauty,health,everythingwillbegone.Ifyougive

yourself to the Lord, you will retain them all.”

13.20 Sri Ramakrishna always used to say to the women who

came to him for instruction, “Beware of the snares of man, even if he

is a very near relative.” — One cannot attain anything in spiritual life

without perfect chastity in thought, word, and deed. The amount of

real chastity attained determines the whole progress of the aspirant.

Everyone should be on his guard with every person of the other sex,

beheamanorawoman.Ifwearenotonourguard,realchastitycan

never be attained. Real chastity is infinitely more than the mere

avoidance of sexual intercourse.
