Question: "Sir, can one realize God while leading the life of a householder?"

Sri Ramakrishna: (with a smile): "Why not? Live in the world like a mudfish. The mudfish lives in the mud but itself remains unstained. Or live in the world like a loose woman. She attends to her household duties, but her mind is always on her sweetheart. Do your duties in the world, fixing your mind on God. But this is extremely difficult."

Sri Ramakrishna has said:  Living should be done with God's
name in your lips always.  Then living will never be hazardous.
It is like rubbing oil on your palm and then cutting and taking
out the fruits inside the jack fruit.

Arunachala Siva.
