So many gems stand out in the vast readings for this weeks module. Here is one beautiful excerpt from Swami Bhajanananda Puri’s writing that perhaps we can all deeply relate to:
“The devotee soon finds that this mystic quest is leading him or her on to the depth of their soul which is the gateway to the world of the Spirit. It is there that the real Ramakrishna is to be sought.
The real Sri Ramakrishna is unknown but not unknowable. He can be known only if he reveals himself. And he reveals himself to sincere aspirants in the secret depths of their hearts and fulfils the beginningless yearnings of their souls. Diverse and mysterious are the ways by which the incarnation reveals himself to the blessed, and leads them from the unreal to Real, from darkness to Light, and from death to Immortality. What even these blessed souls feel about him has been expressed by Swami Abhedananda, who was certainly one among them, in the following verse: “O Lord, I do not know your real nature. Whatever be the Truth you reveal yourself in, to That I offer my salutations again and again.”
