Sri Ramakrishna- The All Encompassing Supreme Lord

Swami Jnanadananda (Author)

The greatest paradigm shift in Indian culture began in the nineteenth century, when it encountered Western customs; more specifically in 1836 when Macaulay's education policy for India became effective. The chief aim of that policy was to form a nation of clerks steeped in western materialism. Macaulay said: I have travelled across the length and breadth of India; and such wealth I have seen in this country, such high moral values, that I do not think we would ever conquer this country unless we break the very back bone of this nation which is her spiritual and cultural heritage; and, therefore, I propose that we replace her old and ancient education system, her culture; for if the Indians think that all that is foreign and English is good and greater than their own, they will lose their self esteem, their native culture, and they will become what we want them to be, a truly dominated nation. Macaulay's education policy was able to achieve its goal. He was successful in creating "a class of persons, Indian in blood and colour, but English in taste, in opinions, in morals, and in intellect"! Indeed, educated Indians welcomed the West whole-heartedly. Then, the Lord himself arranged for an effective alternative to stop the rumbling chariot of Westernization of India. He himself came as an uneducated humble priest called Sri Ramakrishna, proclaiming the glory of Sanatan dharma! 'In Dakshineswar, only a few miles outside the Victorian metropolis of Calcutta, a city as cosmopolitan and as materialistic as New York, London or Paris, practicing his sadhana, not according to enlightened modern methods, but after the most ancient, most superstitious, most idolatrous traditions of timeless India, Sri Ramakrishna cut the hinges of the heavens and released the fountains of divine bliss. Swami Vivekananda has said: 'Sri Ramakrishna was the embodiment of infinite ideas... capable of development in infinite ways. Even if one can find a limit to the knowledge of Brahman, one cannot measure the unfathomable depths of the Master's mind.' This man's inner strength was so great, his truth so radiating, that from all over India, educated and uneducated, rich and poor, people came to the temple of Dakshineswar in Calcutta and bowed at the feet of Sri Ramakrishna. The work of salvation, the work of raising India out of her lethargic sleep HAD BEGUN.' This book traces the process through which Sri Ramakrishna stimulated Hinduism and inspired Indians to come back to the fold of Sanatan Dharma once again.
