Ramakrishna

Fecha de nacimiento: 18. Febrero 1836
Fecha de muerte: 16. Agosto 1886
Otros nombres: Šrí Rámakršna

Sri Ramakrishna . Su nombre era Gadadhar Chattopadhyay y fue un místico bengalí a quien muchos hindúes consideran un avatar o encarnación divina. Desde 1856 ejerció como sacerdote de el templo de la diosa Kali en Dakshineswar y recibió instrucción para alcanzar la iluminación.

Durante doce años practicó ejercicios espirituales bajo la guía de maestros de las más diversas inspiraciones y orientaciones religiosas, incluidos el cristianismo y el islam.

Afirmó que por cada una de estas vías había alcanzado la iluminación , por lo que afirmaba que los seguidores de todas las religiones podrían lograr la experiencia de la «Realidad Última», si su entrega a Dios fuera lo suficientemente intensa.

Sus discípulos más importantes fueron los swamis Vivekananda y Brahmananda, que difundieron su mensaje a través de Oriente y Occidente. Wikipedia

„Cuanto mayor es el apego que se tiene al mundo, tanto menor es la posibilidad que tiene el hombre de obtener el conocimiento. Cuando menos está apegado al mundo, más probabilidades tiene de alcanzar el conocimiento.“

—  Ramakrishna

„Hasta que no te vuelvas simple como un niño, no recibirás la iluminación divina. Olvida toda tu sabiduría mundana e ignórala por completo.“

„Puedes ver muchas estrellas en el cielo durante la noche, pero no cuando sale el sol. ¿Puedes, por eso, decir que no hay estrellas en el firmamento durante el día? ¡Oh hombre!, porque no ves a Dios en los días de tu ignorancia, no digas que Dios no existe.“

—  Ramakrishna

„Unless one always speaks the truth, one cannot find God Who is the soul of truth.“

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

—  Ramakrishna

Fuente: The Gospel of Sri Ramakrishna (1942), p. 312
Contexto: 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

Fuente: The Gospel of Sri Ramakrishna (1942), p. 319
Contexto: 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.

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

—  Ramakrishna

Fuente: The Gospel of Sri Ramakrishna (1942), p. 423
Contexto: 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
Contexto: 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

Fuente: The Gospel of Sri Ramakrishna (1942), p. 248
Contexto: 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

Fuente: Sayings of Sri Ramakrishna (1960), p. 22
Contexto: 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

Fuente: The Gospel of Sri Ramakrishna (1942), p. 909
Contexto: 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.
