Description

Image of Divinity: Sri Ramakrishna’s Reverence for Women is an authentic account of recorded events in the life of Ramakrishna, one of the world’s great spiritual masters, who lived in India between 1836 and 1886.

During the 19th century, India’s spiritual currents were refreshed and replenished by Ramakrishna, who devoted himself steadfastly to attaining knowledge of God. He comes to know divinity in many ways-through the disciplines of Hinduism, as well as trough Christian and Muslim traditions. He is now believed by many to be an incarnation of God.

Practicing in the Hindu tradition, Ramakrishna first realized God in the form of the Divine Mother, Kali. In his first vision, he saw her as an Impersonal manifestation, as a boundless sea of light. Later he saw her as an embodied form of the Divine Mother, a Personal manifestation. From that time forward, Ramakrishna saw himself as a child of the Divine Mother.

We find revealed in Sri Ramakrishna's life and attitude bedrock of respect for women that rests on the reality of every individual woman as one with the Absolute. Women were recognized as the Divine Mother, as being worthy of the highest spiritual teachings, as partners in a great mission. His life is a testimony to the value and power of the feminine.
