Parable on Faith by Sri Ramakrishna Paramhamsa

This short story is a part of - Short Stories by Sri Ramakrishna Paramahamsa

Once, while at Vrindavan, he felt thirsty and went to a well.

Near it he saw a man standing. On being asked to draw a little water for him, the man said: 'I belong to a low caste, sir. You are a brahmin.

How can I draw water for you?' Krishnakishore said: Take the name of Siva. By repeating

His holy name you will make yourself pure.' The low-caste man did as he was told, and Krishnakishore, orthodox brahmin that he was, drank that water. What tremendous faith!
