Ramakrishna & Jesus

an inspiring story about Ramakrishna Paramahamsa -- he was a kind of spiritual maverick, in that he came from a devout and strictured Indian Brahmin family, but he was so dedicated to god that he evolved into an experimental character. always researching on god's nature. always testing the divine energy in his own inner soul laboratory.

once Ramakrishna gained enlightenment, he tried every type of spiritual practice he could find, from all the major disciplines he knew of, to see if they would wind up at the same place. for several days, he followed the Muslim prayers and diet and rules of living -- and found that, of course, Islam led to god the same way the various Hindu traditions do.

Ramakrishna was also moved to experience Christianity, and for a period of three days he only recited Christian prayers, looked at drawings of Jesus and his mother, Mary, and had visions of Christian monks chanting different prayers, in monasteries.

after three days, he reached the same enlightenment he had found from all the other paths.

then, later, he noticed a stranger, clearly a foreigner, walking on the grounds of the temple complex (Dakshineshwar) where he lived. as the man came closer, with long-ish hair and clear eyes, Ramakrishna recognized him as Jesus Christ.

Jesus came up to Ramakrishna, threw his arms open, and the two embraced. as they hugged each other -- Jesus dissolved into Ramakrishna. his form disappeared completely, but his energy remained and merged with Ramakrishna.

these days, when looking at a photo of Ramakrishna Paramahamsa (which I do daily, since I have him on my wall), it's obvious from his eyes that he definitely knew the range and scope of the greatness not only of Mother's creation, and this world's inner workings, but he also knew the breadth and depth of the ocean that is Jesus.
