Finding wisdom for our everyday lives in the words of one of India's greatest saints
(more about Sri Ramakrishna)

Man is Like a Pillowcase

Man is like a pillowcase. The color of one may be red, another blue, another black, but all contain the same cotton.

So it is with man--one is beautiful, one is not; another is holy, a fourth wicked; but the Divine dwells in them all.


In this saying, Sri Ramakrishna emphasizes the divinity in all people, without distinction. As we'll see later, this is to be tempered with some discrimination.
