Sri Ramakrishna (3 of 3)

Side Bar
During all these mystical events, Sri Ramakrishna had a wife waiting back in Kamarpukur, who was growing more and more concerned as she heard the rumors of her husband's supposed insanity. Yet Sarada, who came to be known by devotees as Sri Sarada Devi, was no ordinary wife. Like Ramakrishna, she harbored an intense devotion to the Divine. At the age of five, she is said to have prayed, "Oh God, even the moon has dark spots on it. Please make my character pure and unblemished." Determined to render help if her husband needed it, she set out on foot for Dakshineswar, a journey of several days, nearly dying of fever in the process but finally coming to the side of Ramakrishna.
Their marriage was never consummated, but the divine love between them was palpable, inspiring the waves of people who began to come to see Ramakrishna. Some came to satisfy their curiosity, some to gawk at an oddity, but many came to be his disciples. The most well-known of these, Swami Vivekananda, brought the philosophy of Vedanta to the West, establishing Vedanta Societies in the United States and elsewhere. Sri Sarada Devi
