The Teachings of Ramakrishna Paramahamsa’s Wisdom
Sri Ramakrishna Paramhansa, born in 18 Feb 1836, is one of the most acclaimed enlightened mystic and yogi from West Bengal, India. If Ramakrishna’s prime disciple Swami Vivekananda had not visited the West and exhorted about humanity and universal brotherhood, then the globe would have surely missed the discipline and teachings of Sri Ramakrishna. It was possible only through Swami Vivekananda, that the world came to know about this renowned mystic.
Sri Ramakrishna Paramhansa defended the pathway of Bhakti Marg or devotion to people. As per his teachings, in Kaliyug the path of dedication is best-suited to mankind. He himself was an extreme devotee of Goddess Kaali. He submitted totally into the prayers to Goddess Kaali.
Some of his admirable teachings include:
- God is Love
Do not be mad for materialistic things present in the world. Be mad with the care and love of God. A lot of good prayers and sayings are found in holy books and scriptures. By simply reading those holy prayers will not make a person pious and religious. He must practice the generosities taught in the scriptures books so as to achieve the love of God.
- God is Accurate Knowledge
If anyone braces himself/herself with the ultimately true knowledge of the Universal Self and then exist in the crux of worldliness and wealth, it will not benefit or affect him/her at all. When the angelic perception is realized, everyone appears to be in a state of equilibrium; and there are no differences between good and evil. These two virtues cannot restrict him/her who has attained a feeling of oneness with Nature and his own self with Brahmin.
- God is in your Heart
Due to the curtain of Maya i.e. illusion that excludes God from human view, an individual cannot envision Him residing in one’s own heart. After planting the deity on the lotus in your heart, you must preserve the illumination of recalling God ever freeloading. While engrossed in the incidents of the world, one should uniformly set gaze upon the inner-self and check whether the lamp is burning or not.
- God is our Father and is Infinite
The real Father of everyone is none but God. He is there for all and has infinite forms through which He can be approached. There can be various forms and incarnations of the God himself but He is one. Undivided is who He is. He can be approachable only with the truth since He is the Guardian spirit of everyone living on this planet.
- God is the ultimate end of everything
One should work without any strings attached. To work without any expectation of reward or fear of punishment in this world is the ultimate truth and a wise thinking. God is the end to every phase and every walk of life. Everyone should take shelter in God. Get intoxicated with the love of Him. Pray to Him with a yearning heart with all your heart and soul. This will purify your heart.
