Ramakrishna Paramhansa was spiritualist of an unique genre unmatched by any other spiritualist. There was no pretentiousness in his devotion.
If the spiritualism of others was a beam of light Paramhansa’s spiritual exercise was laser beam, an amplification of devotion through simulated exhibition of singing prayers. He was a body of pure devotion in which his physical reality was dissolved. He had the capacity to intensify the common devotional mood in a stream of spiritual joy.
It was Ramakrishna Paramshansa who discovered Swami Vivekanada in a confused young man called Narenda when they first met. Narendra had doubts about the genuineness of Ramakrishna’s spiritual power and put the latter to test several times. Ramakrishna didn’t mind and just remarked,” When you buy an earthen pot you test it by tapping and thumping to see the soundness of the item being bought. His testing me merely shows his seriousness in totally surrendering to me.”
He practically tried several modes of worships, penances and mediations. The lesson was that all roads lead to the same sublime goal. He accepted the laws of nature reverently and the fate as prasadam of ‘Kalli Maa’ he was devoted to. To some he looked an ordinary paganic superstitious idol worshiper. But the intensity of his devotion was so fierce that he could melt the idol mentally into a spiritual black hole that defied definition.
His entire life from the very childhood was soaked in devotion and all the places he traversed an all people who came into his contact got wetted with his spiritualism. Such was his contact got wetted with his spiritualism. Such was his influence. The story of his life reads like a prayer to the Power Supreme. We hope that this book will rub some of his spiritualism into our dear readers.
