All right,’ said the monk, ‘go and ask your mother. ’ Sri Ramakrishna went into the Kali temple and spoke of the matter to the Mother and in a state of trance heard Her command: ‘Yes, my boy, go and learn of him. ’ In a state of semiconsciousness and with a beaming countenance, Sri Ramakrishna returned and said to Totapuri that he had his Mother ’s permission. Totapuri could not help smiling at his apparent superstition in addressing the image in the temple as Mother, for, as a Vedantist, he looked upon Shakti—the kinetic state of Brahman, which Sri Ramakrishna worshipped as Mother—as SRI RAMAKRISHNA 57 nothing but an illusion.

Everything is spiritual, the variance being only in form. ‘The Advaita is the last word in realization. ’ Sri Ramakrishna now became convinced that his extraordinary spiritual struggles and realizations were not for himself, but to usher in a new era of spiritual unfoldment and to show mankind how to overcome the obstacles on the way to God-realization.
