There is famine in many other places as well, so it is not necessary to stay so long in one place. Tell them to move to other localities and write to each man to go to a separate place. All such work is real work. If the field is made ready in this way, the seeds of spiritual knowledge can be sown. Remember this always — that the only answer to those conservative fanatics who abuse us is such work.
A work can be judged by its results only, just as one can infer the nature of previous mental tendencies by their resultant in present behavior. . . .Do the work very confidentially. Be fearless; Shri Ramakrishna is our helper, what fear? Give my love to all.
