Spiritual Grace in a Nutshell

The grace of a spiritual master draws one to his ever alluring presence over and over again. It is but natural for a devotee to succumb to the pull of His grace effortlessly and to look forward for the earliest opportunity to bask in His presence.

A short story by Sri Ramakrishna Paramahamsa:

A man once fed a peacock with opium pills one evening. The peacock that sunk into intoxication returned back the following day at the same time for the share of intoxication. So is the state with a devotee who experiences the power of the grace of the Master. He looks forward to drown himself in the Master’s presence at any given opportunity.

The pull of grace is irresistible once one gets ensnared by it as grace takes over completely.
