In this Talk: Chapter 22 – Advice to an Actor – May 24, 1884

JUST AS you practice much in order to sing, dance, and play on instruments, so one should practice the art of fixing the mind on God. One should practice regularly such disciplines as worship, japa, and meditation.” So advised Sri Ramakrishna to an actor after viewing part of a play in the Dakshinewsar Temple complex.

With characteristic humour, Sri Ramakrishna also teased him observing: “You are an actor in the theatre. That’s fine. But it is a very painful profession. You are young now; so you have a full, round face. Afterwards, there will be hollows in your cheeks. Almost all actors become like that; they get hollow cheeks and big bellies.” (Laughter)

Some glimpses of Sri Ramakrishna’s world, full of wisdom and mirth and lively, joyous meetings with spiritual seekers.

The Gospel of Sri Ramakrishna: The conversations between Sri Ramakrishna, the 19th-century mystic and promoter of interfaith understanding, and the brilliant, questioning minds of Calcutta. In Sri Ramakrishna, they came face-to-face with a type of Spirituality and mystical states they had only read about. Translated from Bengali by Swami Nikhilananda with the literary help of Margaret Woodrow Wilson, daughter of President Woodrow Wilson and Joseph Campbell, foreword by Aldous Huxley.
