Jatadari & Ramlala – Sadhana of Vatsalya Bhava

It was probably about the year 1864 that Jatadhari, a great Vaishnava devotee, a wandering monk and a devotee of Sri Ramam came to Dakshineswar.  Ramlala, or the Child Rama was his favourite deity. By long meditations and worship Jatadhari had made great spiritual progress. He had been blessed with a wonderful vision of Rama and  the effulgent form of young Rama became a living presence to him. He nursed him, fed and played with him, and even put him to bed.

Sri Ramakrishna understood Jatadhari’s state and his love for Ramalala though Jatadhari had told none about it; for Sri Ramakrishna could himself see the divine play of Ramlala. Slowly, Ramlala became intimate with Sri Ramakrishna too. He would stay most of the time in his room and play with him. He would run into the hot sun. Ramakrishna would scold him not to do so as he would get blisters on his feet. Sometimes, Ramlala would not like to get out of the water after bathing in the Ganga. On such occasions Ramakrishna would warn him that he would catch cold if he did not come out of water. Thus Sri Ramakrishna experienced Vatsalya Bhava (the relation of parent and child).

Jatadhari stayed at Dakshineshwar for many months, for Ramlala was not willing to leave Sri Ramakrishna and go with him. One day he came to Sri Ramakrishna with tears in his eyes and said, “Ramlala has fulfilled my wish and given me his Darshan. He is happy in your company; and I am happy when he is happy. So I shall leave him with you and go my way”. Ramlala was with Sri Ramakrishna during the rest of his life. Even many years later, devotees who went to Dakshineshwar found the Ramlala image there.
