Sample text

This is called the Nirvikalpa Samadhi—the highest flight of Advaita philosophy. This is the crowning glory of man’s spiritual exercises—the last word in his evolution. Then there is no more birth, no more death, nor any further identification with the changes of the body. He leaves behind all the modifications of relativity like a cast-off garment. He realizes his identity with the Eternal Brahman, the One without a second. There is no doubt Sri Ramakrishna was the fittest person to realize this state.

So Sarada Devi, or the Holy Mother as she became known later to the devotees of Sri Ramakrishna, arrived at Kamarpukur. Here was a chance for Sri Ramakrishna to test his realizations. By allowing the rightful privileges of her position to his wife, who was then a girl of fourteen, he subjected himself to an ordeal from which he emerged brighter than ever. He took special care that she had an all-round training in the discharge of her household duties.

With breathless wonder Totapuri stood before this august spectacle. ’ Impelled by doubt, he made a searching examination. ’ It was undoubtedly a case of Nirvikalpa Samadhi—the culmination of the Advaita practice! Totapuri immediately took steps to bring the mind of Sri Ramakrishna down to the world of phenomena. Little by little he came to the consciousness of the outside universe. He opened his eyes and saw his Guru looking at him with tenderness and admiration. The Guru answered the worthy disciple’s prostration by locking him in a warm embrace.
