SRI RAMAKRISHNA

 

                   

Sri
RamaKrishna Paramahansa (1836-1886) was one of the very few true avatars of
the modern age, who has attained salvation by the direct help of Maya; the
illusory principle of supreme consciousness.


   
He was an ardent believer of ‘Kali’ the goddess of destruction. His life is
one of the very few in history, which when we we examine closely, was filled
with miracles and humbleness united into one. Normally, a human mind is
advised to fight out the illusory factor of the nature, but Sri Ramakrishna
was able to worship with such pure heart the maya itself; so that the
illusory power itself was protecting him and through it only he was able to
see all the power that the supreme consciousness is all about. Because he
was worshipping the purest form of the illusory power in the form of mother,
he could see any feminine principle as mother goddess only and also in the
enlightened form. His miracles are endless and the stories of his spiritual
teachings are the best of it’s kind in the modern world.


  
One of his principal disciples was the famous Vivekananda, who has gained
international reputation by his notable vocabulary and wonderful narrations
of the defects and remedies of the modern world with its spiritual deficits.


    
There are many stories of Sri Ramakrishna; about him and also the stories he
has told. He was supposed to be highly allergic to money as it was one of
the dirtiest illusions of Maya, and as a person who was illuminated by the
pure divine energy; he couldn’t touch any type of money by his hands. One
day, Vivekananda who was at that time doubtful of the authenticity of his
claims; hid a coin under his mattress. As Sri Ramakrishna tried to lay down
on the cot, he was struck by terrible pain and on examination of the
mattress, the coin was found out and Vivekananda admitted of the folly he
has committed.

Sri Ramakrishna was born as Gadadhar
Chatterjee in 1836 at Kamarpukur about sixty miles from Calcutta. His
parents, Khudiram and Chandramani, were poor and made ends meet with
great difficulty. The spent most of their time worshipping their family
diety, Raghuvir, Whom they looked upon as their patron and protector.


 Gadadhar
was pet of the whole village. He was handsome and had a natural gift for
the fine arts. He, however, disliked going to school. When asked why he
did not want to go to school, his reply was, “The so-called education is
for earning money only; I don’t care for this kind of education.” He
loved Nature and spent his time in fields and fruit gardens outside the
village with his friends. Now and then, he went into ecstasies. A line
of white cranes against black monsoon clouds, singing religious songs or
acting in a religious drama sent him to ecstasies.


 Gadadhar
lost his father a the age of seven. He became more serious from then on,
but he did not change his ways and habits. He continued to refuse to go
to school. Instead, he was seen visiting monks who stopped at his
village on their way to Puri. He would serve them and listen with rapt
attention to the arguments they often had among themselves over
religious issues.


 Gadadhar
had now attained the age when he should be invested with the sacred
thread. When arrangements were nearly complete for this, Gadadhar
declared that he would have his first alms as a brahmin from a certain
Sudra women of the village. This was something unheard of! Tradition
required that it should be a brahmin and not a Sudra who would give him
the first alms. This was pointed out, but he was adamant. He said he had
given his word to the lady and if he did not keep his word, what sort of
brahmin would he be then? No argument, no appeal, no amount of tears
could budge him from his position. Finally, Ramkumar his eldest brother
and now the head of family, had to give in.


 Meanwhile,
the family’s financial position worsened everyday. Ramkumar ran a
Sanskrit school in Calcutta and also served as priest for some families.
His earnings were pitifully small and he was unable to send money home
regularly. He decided to bring Gadadhar to Calcutta. His plan was to try
to make him study Sanskrit. Perhaps he could also do some priestly work
and make some money of his own. Gadadhar arrived but he lost no time in
making it clear that he was not going to study. He, However, did not
mind doing some priestly work, not for money but for the pleasure of it.


 About
this time, a rich women of Calcutta, Rani Rashmoni, founded a temple at
Dakshineswar. She approached Ramkumar to serve as priest at the
Temple of Kali
and Ramkumar agreed. After some persuasion,
Gadadhar agreed to decorate the deity. When Ramkumar retired, Gadadhar
took his place as priest.


 When
He started worshipping Mother Kali, he began
to ask himself if he was worshipping a living Goddess, why should she
not respond to his worship? This question nagged him day and night.
Then, he began to pray to Kali, ‘Mother, you’ve been gracious to many
devotees, in the past and have revealed yourself to them. Why would you
not reveal yourself to me, also? Am I not also your son?’ He would weep
bitterly and sometimes even cry out loudly while worshipping. At night,
he would go into a near-by jungle and spend the whole night praying. One
day he was so impatient to see Mother Kali that he decided to end his
life. He seized a sword hanging on the wall and was about to strike
himself with it when he saw light issuing from the deity in waves and he
was soon overwhelmed by those waves. He then fell down unconscious on
the floor.


 He prayed to Mother Kali for more
religious experiences. He specially wanted to know the truths over
religious systems taught. Ramakrishna then entered upon a period of
Twelve Years, during which he went through very elaborate spiritual
disciplines. Strangely enough, teachers of those systems arrived as and
when necessary as if directed by some invisible power. One of those
teachers was a wandering monk named Totapuri, and it was he that
eventually contributed to the unfolding of the Awakening experience in
Ramakrishna.
