It was the dead of night and the household was asleep. After he had knocked a great deal, someone came down to open the door.
At sight of the man he asked, 'Hello!
What's the matter?'
The man replied: 'Can't you guess? You know how fond I am of smoking. I have come here to light my charcoal.'
The neighbour said: 'Ha! Ha! You are a fine man indeed!
You took the trouble to come and do all this knocking at the door!
Why, you have a lighted lantern in your hand!' .
"What a man seeks is very near him.
Still he wanders about from place to place.
( "Gospel of Sri Ramakrishna"
