Sri Ramakrishna Paramahamsa, the great 19th century Saint and a staunch devotee of Kali Mata, was born in a village in the present day West Bengal to a pious Brahmin family. His birth name was Gadadhar. Though he had married Ma Sarada Devi, but he treated her like the holy mother Ma Kali Devi, and showered great affection on her. Due to his high spiritual interest, though some people treated him as a mad man, but shortly everyone in his village began to realise his supremacy, and highly honoured him.
Due to his great devotion on Ma Kali, he served as a priest in Sri Dakshineswar Kali Temple, and due to his regular prayers, Ma Kali had emerged from the idol, and conversed with him about spiritual matters. Due to his great name and fame, he had got nice disciples like Swami Vivekananda, and both of them gave lot of good teachings and delivered excellent spiritual quotes.
Some of the golden spiritual quotes of Sri Ramakrishna Paramahamsa and Swami Vivekananda are as follows:
When the flower blooms, the bees would come to drink the nectar from it, similarly during our young age itself, we have to taste the sweetness of realising the almighty.
