This volume comprises the English translation of volume six and the appendix to volume five of the original Bengali book Sri Sri Ramakrishna Kathamrita Prasanga. The general plan of the book is similar to that of the first and second volumes.
What the world wants is character. The world is in need of those whose life is one burning love--selfless. That love will make every word tell like a thunderbolt. Awake, awake, great souls! The world is burning in misery. Can you sleep? Work unto death--I am with you, and when I am gone, my spirit will work with you. This life comes and goes--wealth, fame, enjoyments are only of a few days. It is better, far better, to die on the field of duty, preaching the truth than to die like a worldly worm. Advance!
