3rd January in Swami Vivekananda Life

3 Jan 1886 : Narendra told the Master : Everyone has been blessed with realization. Let me, too, have something. When all have got it, why should I alone be left out?
 
'What to you want?', asked the Master.
 
'I wished to get immersed in samadhi for 3 or 4 day at a stretch, breaking it only for food.'
 
The Master said : You are a fool. There is a higher state than that even. Come here after making some provision for your family and you shall get a higher state than even Samadhi.
