198 Acceptance

This post has been published by me as a part of the Blog-a-Ton 40; the fortieth edition of the online marathon of Bloggers; where we decide and we write. To be part of the next edition, visit and start following Blog-a-Ton. The theme for the month is "MAKE A WISH"
“Make a Wish to Mother,” ordered the Master.

The young disciple faced harsh realities of life. Initially he had requested his Master to pray for him. He was a beloved disciple of the Master “I cannot ask Mother for mundane things,” replied he.

Disciple went inside the temple. He felt the presence of the Mother. He understood why his Master could not “ask for him”.

“Mother, Give me  Knowledge and Devotion” – he prayed.  
Second and third time.

“Your people will never be in want of plain food and clothes” said the Master.  

Naren has accepted Mother”, Sri Ramkrishna beamed joyfully.

    1. Very true. I have heard this concept that those who worship Saraswati are not supposed to worship Laksmi .. and during Deepavali they do not have the customary Lakshmi Poojan. That is a fantastic approach, I guess.
