Man, be careful of womanSri Ramakrishna said:
Man, be careful of woman.
Mother Kali said:
Son, your advice needs some explanation.
Mother, what I meant was this:
Man, be careful of the human in woman.
Son, still it is not quite clear to me.
Mother, let me simplify it for you.
What I meant was this:
Man, do not use your human eyes to see
The divine in woman.
Son, now I understand your philosophy.
It is simply fascinating,
It is divinely illumining,
It is supremely fulfilling.
