No failure, but don't aim to fail

    Posted on October 31, 2013

Even there is no loss by falling down from this path, that does not mean that we should neglect it. No. Formerly, in Medical College of Calcutta the students who failed in the final examination, they were given some title, L.M.S., "License in Medical, Medicine and Surgery," L.M.S. And those who passed, they were given the title M.D. or M.D. So even by failure, they would get some title and allowed to practice as medical man. But that does not mean that we may try to fail also. No. The aim should be to become successful, not to fail. Even though we are in failure, still, there is profit undoubtedly, but we should not aim to that objective. We should be determined that in this very life we must have a spiritual realization perfectly.
