Gadadhar Chattopadhyay , conosciuto come Sri Ramakrishna Paramahamsa è stato un mistico indiano. Ramakrishna è stato un importante mistico, nonché un guru, famoso per aver intrapreso i vari percorsi mistici delle principali religioni del mondo. I suoi insegnamenti enfatizzano la realizzazione spirituale come più alto obiettivo della vita, lo sviluppare amore e devozione per Dio, l'unicità dell'esistenza, l'armonia e la sostanziale unità delle religioni.

I discepoli di Ramakrishna, tra cui Swami Vivekananda, hanno dato vita ad un ordine inter-religioso, la Ramakrishna Mission, con lo scopo di diffondere l'idea di unicità del Divino e la validità di qualsiasi cammino religioso.

Frasi Ramakrishna

Pubblicità

„Infinite are the paths and infinite the opinions.“

—  Ramakrishna
Context: One should not think, "My religion alone is the right path and other religions are false." God can be realized by means of all paths. It is enough to have sincere yearning for God. Infinite are the paths and infinite the opinions. p. 158

„Beware of these powers, and desire them not.“

—  Ramakrishna
Context: Visit not miracle-mongers and those who exhibit occult powers. These men are stragglers from the path of Truth. Their minds have become entangled in psychic powers, which are like veritable meshes in the way of the pilgrim to Brahman. Beware of these powers, and desire them not. p. 372

„Mother, here is Thy knowledge and here is Thy ignorance. Take them both, and give me only pure love.“

—  Ramakrishna
Context: 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. p. 312

„This māyā, that is to say, the ego, is like a cloud. The sun cannot be seen on account of a thin patch of cloud; when that disappears one sees the sun.“

—  Ramakrishna
Context: This māyā, that is to say, the ego, is like a cloud. The sun cannot be seen on account of a thin patch of cloud; when that disappears one sees the sun. If by the grace of the guru one's ego vanishes, then one sees God. p. 169

„One cannot attain divine knowledge till one gets rid of pride.“

—  Ramakrishna
Context: One cannot attain divine knowledge till one gets rid of pride. Water does not stay on the top of a mound; but into low land it flows in torrents from all sides. p. 874

„There are different temperaments. There are differences in the capacity to comprehend.“

—  Ramakrishna
Context: You must know that there are different tastes. There are also different powers of digestion. God has made different religions and creeds to suit different aspirants. By no means all are fit for the Knowledge of Brahman. Therefore the worship of God with form has been provided. The mother brings home a fish for her children. She curries part of the fish, part she fries, and with another part she makes pilau. By no means all can digest the pilau. So she makes fish soup for those who have weak stomachs. Further, some want pickled or fried fish. There are different temperaments. There are differences in the capacity to comprehend. p. 486

„When the "I" disappears, what is remains. That cannot be described in words.“

—  Ramakrishna
Context: Take the case of the infinite ocean. There is no limit to its water. Suppose a pot is immersed in it: there is water both inside and outside the pot. The jnani sees that both inside and outside there is nothing but Paramatman. Then what is this pot? It is "I-consciousness". Because of the pot the water appears to be divided into two parts; because of the pot you seem to perceive an inside and an outside. One feels that way as long as this pot of "I" exists. When the "I" disappears, what is remains. That cannot be described in words. p. 915
