The seventh: Ramakrishna, his Parables . You know I don’t like saints very much. That does not mean that I like them a little bit – I don’t like them at all. In fact, to be true I hate them. Saints are phony, hocus-pocus; the stuff bullshit is made of. But Ramakrishna does not belong to them – again, thank God! At least there are a few people who are saintly and yet are not saints.

Ramakrishna’s Parables are very simple. Parables are bound to be simple. Remember the parables of Jesus? – Just like that. If a parable is difficult then it is no longer useful. A parable is only needed so that it can be understood by all ages of children. Yes, I mean all ages of children. There are children who are ten years of age, and there are children of eighty years of age, and so on...but they are all children playing on the seashore, collecting seashells. Ramakrishna’s Parables is my seventh book.
