Rámakrisna

Születési dátum: 18. február 1836
Halál dátuma: 16. augusztus 1886
Más nevek: Šrí Rámakršna

Eredeti nevén Gadádhar/Gadáhára Csattopadhjájá/Csattérdzsí , megtisztelő kapott nevén Rámakrisna Paramahansza , a 19. századi India egyik legnagyobb alakja, bengáli misztikus jógi és szent, az ország vallási megújulásának és a megújított védánta filozófiának egyik fő mestere volt.

Amellett, hogy racionális gondolkodású, bölcs és tudatos tanító hírében állt, rendkívüli tudatállapot-változásokat élt át, időnként szent önkívületbe esett, máskor órákon át kacagott, sírt vagy éppen táncra perdült. Az ilyen spontán átélései miatt szokták őt „Isten szent bolondjának” is nevezni. Miközben Rámakrisna ezeket átélte, még feleségét, a szintén szentnek tartott Száradá Dévit is olyan erős félelem fogta el, hogy alig mert a Mester közelében maradni. Wikipedia

„I gave up everything at Her feet but could not bring myself to give up truth.“

—  Ramakrishna

Forrás: The Gospel of Sri Ramakrishna (1942), p. 312
Kontextus: It is said that truthfulness alone constitutes the spiritual discipline of the Kaliyuga. If a man clings tenaciously to truth he ultimately realizes God. Without this regard for truth, one gradually loses everything. If by chance I say that I will go to the pine-grove, I must go there even if there is no further need of it, lest I lose my attachment to truth. After my vision of the Divine Mother, I prayed to Her, taking a flower in my hands: "Mother, here is Thy knowledge and here is Thy ignorance. Take them both, and give me only pure love. Here is Thy holiness and here is Thy unholiness. Take them both, Mother, and give me pure love. Here is Thy good and here is Thy evil. Take them both, Mother, and give me pure love. Here is Thy righteousness and here is Thy unrighteousness. Take them both, Mother, and give me pure love." I mentioned all these, but I could not say: "Mother, here is Thy truth and here is Thy falsehood. Take them both." I gave up everything at Her feet but could not bring myself to give up truth.

„After realizing God, one does not identify oneself any more with the body. Then one knows that body and soul are two different things.“

—  Ramakrishna

Forrás: The Gospel of Sri Ramakrishna (1942), p. 319
Kontextus: The body was born and it will die. But for the soul there is no death. It is like the betel-nut. When the nut is ripe it does not stick to the shell. But when it is green it is difficult to separate it from the shell. After realizing God, one does not identify oneself any more with the body. Then one knows that body and soul are two different things.

„Here is Thy righteousness and here is Thy unrighteousness. Take them both, Mother, and give me pure love.“

„Everyone is going toward God. They will all realize Him if they have sincerity and longing of heart.“

—  Ramakrishna

Forrás: The Gospel of Sri Ramakrishna (1942), p. 423
Kontextus: Truth is one; only It is called by different names. All people are seeking the same Truth; the variance is due to climate, temperament, and name. A lake has many ghats. From one ghat the Hindus take water in jars and call it "jal". From another ghat the Mussalmāns take water in leather bags and call it "pāni". From a third the Christians take the same thing and call it "water". Suppose someone says that the thing is not "jal" but "pāni", or that it is not "pāni" but "water", or that it is not "water" but "jal", It would indeed be ridiculous. But this very thing is at the root of the friction among sects, their misunderstandings and quarrels. This is why people injure and kill one another, and shed blood, in the name of religion. But this is not good. Everyone is going toward God. They will all realize Him if they have sincerity and longing of heart.

„Meditate upon the Knowledge and Bliss Eternal, and you will also have bliss.“

—  Ramakrishna

As quoted in Hindu Psychology : Its Meaning for the West (1946) by Swami Akhilananda, p. 204
Variant translation: Meditate upon the Knowledge and Bliss Eternal, and you also will have bliss. Bliss indeed is eternal, only it is covered and obscured by ignorance. The less your attachment is to the senses, the more will be your love to God.
Saying 806, in Teachings of Sri Ramakrishna (1948) edited by Swami Vireswarananda
Kontextus: Meditate upon the Knowledge and Bliss Eternal, and you will also have bliss. The Bliss indeed is eternal, only it is covered and obscured by ignorance. The less your attachment is towards the senses, the more will be your love towards God.

„The mind of a yogi is under his control; he is not under the control of his mind.“

—  Ramakrishna

Forrás: The Gospel of Sri Ramakrishna (1942), p. 248
Kontextus: It is not good for ordinary people to say, "I am He." The waves belong to the water. Does the water belong to the waves?
The upshot of the whole thing is that, no matter what path you follow, yoga is impossible unless the mind becomes quiet. The mind of a yogi is under his control; he is not under the control of his mind.

„Water and a bubble on it are one and the same. The bubble has its birth in the water, floats on it, and is ultimately resolved into it.“

—  Ramakrishna

Forrás: Sayings of Sri Ramakrishna (1960), p. 22
Kontextus: Water and a bubble on it are one and the same. The bubble has its birth in the water, floats on it, and is ultimately resolved into it. So also the Jivatman (individual soul) and the Paramatman (supreme soul) are one and the same, the difference between them being only one of degree. For, one is finite and limited while the other is infinite; one is dependent while the other is independent.

„Man cannot really help the world. God alone does that“

—  Ramakrishna

He who has created the sun and the moon, who has put love for their children in parents' hearts, endowed noble souls with compassion, and holy men and devotees with divine love. The man who works for others, without any selfish motive, really does good to himself. There is gold buried in your heart, but you are not yet aware of it. It is covered with a thin layer of earth. Once you are aware of it, all these activities of yours will lessen. … Through selfless work, love of God grows in the heart. Then, through His grace, one realizes Him in course of time. God can be seen, one can talk to Him, as I am talking to you.
As quoted in Ramakrishna : Prophet of New India (1948) by Swami Nikhilananda, p. 80

„The inferior devotee says, "God is out there."“

—  Ramakrishna

Forrás: The Gospel of Sri Ramakrishna (1942), p. 909
Kontextus: There are three kinds of devotees: superior, mediocre, and inferior. The inferior devotee says, "God is out there." According to him God is different from His creation. The mediocre devotee says: "God is the Antaryami, the Inner Guide. God dwells in everyone's heart." The mediocre devotee sees God in the heart. But the superior devotee sees that God alone has become everything; He alone has become the twenty-four cosmic principles. He finds that everything, above and below, is filled with God.

„All will surely realize God. All will be liberated.“

—  Ramakrishna

Forrás: The Gospel of Sri Ramakrishna (1942), p. 818
Kontextus: All will surely realize God. All will be liberated. It may be that some get their meal in the morning, some at noon, and some in the evening; but none will go without food. All, without any exception, will certainly know their real Self.

„The Master said: "Everything that exists is God." The pupil understood it literally, but not in the true spirit.“

—  Ramakrishna

Saying 15
Râmakrishna : His Life and Sayings (1898)
Kontextus: The Master said: "Everything that exists is God." The pupil understood it literally, but not in the true spirit. While he was passing through a street, he met with an elephant. The driver (mahut) shouted aloud from his high place, "Move away, move away!" The pupil argued in his mind, "Why should I move away? I am God, so is the elephant also God. What fear has God of Himself?" Thinking thus he did not move. At last the elephant took him up by his trunk, and dashed him aside. He was severely hurt, and going back to his Master, he related the whole adventure. The Master said, "All right, you are God. The elephant is God also, but God in the shape of the elephant-driver was warning you also from above. Why did you not pay heed to his warnings?"
