Songs of Ramakrishna
Sri Ramakrishna was one of India’s greatest Spiritual teachers. Sri Ramakrishna was unique in realizing God through practising different religious traditions and he was able to taste the bliss of samdhi through many different ways. However primarily Sri Ramakrishna was a great Bhakti saint – a devotee of the Divine Mother.
The Gospel of Ramakrishna records how Sri Ramakrishna would often sing intoxicated with divine love.
“With these words the Master sang in the sweet voice that had bewitched the hearts of devotees like Keshab: The devotees felt as if they were in paradise itself.
” Dive deep O mind,
dive deep in the ocean of God’s Beauty;
If you descend to the uttermost depths,
There you will find the gem of Love….”
