Ramakrishna: ‘Christ’s Younger Brother’

Romain Rolland (Author)
Synopsis The man whose image I here evoke was the consummation of two thousand years of the spiritual life of millions of people. Although he has been dead for many years, his should animates modern India. He was no hero of action like Gandhi, no genius in art or thought like Goethe or Tagore. He was a little village Brahmin of Bengal, whose outer life was set in a limited frame without striking incident, outside the political and social activities of his time. But his inner life embraced the whole multiplicity of men and Gods. The little peasant of Bengal by listening to the message of his heart found his way to the inner Sea. And there he was wedded to it, thus bearing out the words of the Upanishads: I am more ancient than the radiant gods. I am the first-born of the Being. I am the artery of Immortality. It is my desire to bring the sound of the beating of that artery to the ears of fever-stricken Europe, which has murdered sleep. I wish to wet its lips with the blood of Immortality.

About the author

Romain Rolland

Romain Rolland (1866-1944) was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature two years after Rabindrarnath Tagore did – in 1915 – for his already famous novel Jean Christophe. A musician and a pacifist, he was much attracted by Vivekananda’s Advaita and ideas of a World Religion, and, disturbed by the First World War, he decided to learn more and write about not only him but also his Master. He also wrote the life-stories of Leo Tolstoy and Mahatma Gandhi. For a while he worked with the Red Cross to serve the suffering. His literary writings set new Red Cross to serve the suffering. His literary writings set new trends in world literature. Romain Rolland’s reputation as an idealist and free-thinkers made him welcome all over the world.
