Ramakrishna Paramhansa was a major Hindu spiritual leader and religious figure in India during the nineteenth century. He was a yogi and a mystic and was able to explain difficult spiritual concepts into a clear and understandable manner.

Ramakrishna Paramahansa was a modest, gifted man who loved to serve living creatures and was a devotee of Goddess Kali. He resurrected Hinduism and his sermons drew atheist Swami Vivekananda, who became a devout follower.

Let us know brief about Sri Ramakrishna Paramahansa

Ramakrishna was born on February 18, 1836, at Kamarpukur, a village some sixty miles northwest of Kolkata. Kshudiram Chattopadhyaya and Chandramani Devi are his parents. Gadadhar was the name of his child.

His father who gave him the name Ramakrishna. Gadadhar, a little boy, was sent to the village school to learn Sanskrit, but he was a hesitant student who frequently skipped class. He enjoyed painting Hindu gods and goddesses and making clay replicas of them. After studying in a village school for 12 years, Ramakrishna gave it up as he was not interested in traditional education.

Sri Ramakrishna was ordained as a priest, but his devotion to Mother Kali was so deep that he would lose track of his priestly duties and spend hours worshipping her image. His desperate hunger culminated in a vision of Mother Kali devouring all in her path with unbridled radiance.

Sarada Devi was his wife and Spiritual Partner. She was a divine Mother.

The greatest purpose of all living beings, according to Ramakrishna, is to realise the existence of God. Religions were merely a tool to reach the Absolute for him. On August 16, 1886, this wonderful saint died.

Swami Vivekananda, one of Ramakrishna’s many students, was instrumental in establishing Ramakrishna’s philosophy on a global scale. In 1897, Swami Vivekananda founded the Ramakrishna Mission to carry out the aspirations of his Guru Ramakrishna, and devoted the organisation to the service of society.
