This is the thirteenth story in the series on devotees who had a role in the divine play of Bhagawan Sri Ramakrishna.
DR. RUCHIRA MITRA

April 16, 1886, Kashipur garden house in Calcutta. Sri Ramakrishna was suffering from throat cancer and one of his dearest householder disciples came to meet him. The disciple was given refreshments. He sat in front of the Master and began to eat. As the day was hot, Sri Ramakrishna himself wanted to serve him water. He was so ill that he had not strength even to stand up. And what did the disciples see to their utter amazement? They saw him leave the bed, naked, crawling toward the earthen jug kept in the southeast corner of the room! The devotees were frozen with anxiety. The Master poured the water into a glass. He poured a drop or two into his hand to see whether it was cool. He gave it to the disciple. All were touched seeing the Master’s concern for this disciple. And the recipient of such amazing love was his heroic disciple Girish Chandra Ghosh!

God and the world

God alone is the Master, and again, He is the Servant. This attitude indicates Perfect Knowledge. At first one discriminates, ‘Not this, not this’, and feels that God alone is real and all else is illusory. Afterwards the same person finds that it is God Himself who has become all this — the universe, maya, and the living beings. First negation and then affirmation. This is the view held by the Puranas.

The Blue Plaque in London

Blue Plaque is a scheme under which London keeps its history alive by marking out buildings and places associated with eminent people of the past. One such Blue Plaque building is associated with Swami Vivekananda. In 1896, on his second visit to England, Swamiji stayed here along with his brother-disciple Swami Saradananda, his disciple J.J.Goodwin, his younger brother Mahendranath Datta who was there to pursue higher studies, and an American friend. Dr Vayu Naidu who lives in London draws attention to this building sanctified by the two swamis’ stay. This article was commissioned by the Royal Literary Fund when the author was a Fellow at Royal Holloway University College London in 2019 and was originally an audio podcast broadcast by RLF VOX on social media.
