Life and Teaching of Sri Ramakrishna Paramahamsa
More than 150 years ago, the holy land of Bharat was blessed with a spiritual head who taught through his life and experienced the truth of unity. This was none other than Sri Ramakrishna Paramahamsa. He achieved this unity or ‘Non-Dualism’ by living in the belief that Radha and Krishna (Devotee and the Lord) were one. When he read the Ramayana, he tried to emulate Hanuman and bring about that same oneness between the Lord and the devotee.
Swami says that worship of the divine must stem from the heart. When devotion flows from the heart, the voice of the divine can be experienced in silence. This was the experience of Ramakrishna. He observed perfect silence awaiting the voice of God at any moment. When speech is restrained, the voice of the spirit within makes itself heard.
