How can one become free from lust completely? – Sri Ramakrishna Answers

Harinath (who later became Swami Turiyananda): How can one become free from lust completely?
To this Ramakrishna replied:

“why should it go, my boy? Give it a turn in the other direction.

So, desire to get God and strengthen this desire greatly.

The more you go towards East, the farther away you will be from the west.

The more you increase your love for God, the more your lust and anger will decrease.”
