Sri Ramakrishna Paramahamsa was a humble devotee of Mother Kali. He was childlike in all his talks, actions and ways of life. Once Keshab Chandra Sen went to see him.  He heard about the fame of Sri Ramakrishna. In the course of his talk, Keshab Chandra Sen said he had recently enacted a religious drama in which he took the chief part. Sri Ramakrishna quietly listened. A disciple of Keshab Chandra Sen said that Keshab played his part very well and everybody applauded him they were planning to enact another drama. Keshab Chandra Sen jokingly asked Sri Ramakrishna if he would like to take part in it and if so what role. Without a moment’s hesitation, Sri Ramakrishna replied, “I shall take the part of the dust of your feet.”

 

What was the result of his reply? Sudden stillness and silence. By humbling themselves, saints humble others. When we reduce ourselves to dust, we realise the glory of the Spirit within.
