Sri Ramakrishna intensely calling on Raghuvir with the attitude of Mahavir:


Vision of Devi Sita Events:

Ref: Sri Ramakrishna the Great Master - Part 2 Ch 8: Sri Ramakrishna intensely calling on Raghuvir with the attitude of Mahavir: During the first four years of his sadhana, after he had the vision of the Divine Mother, Sri Ramakrishna also called on Raghuvir (Sri Ramachandra), his family deity as intensely as he had called upon the Divine Mother. Adopting the attitude of Mahavir (Hanuman), the greatest devotee of Sri Ramachandra, Sri Ramakrishna used to cry, "Raguvir, Raghuvir". He was filled with the sentiment of Dasya Bhava where God is looked upon as the Master and the devotee assumes the attitude of His servant.

Sri Ramakrishna getting absorbed in the mood of Mahavir: Sri Ramakrishna became so much absorbed in the mood of Mahavir that he altogether forgot for sometime his separate individuality. Sri Ramakrishna said: "At that time I had to walk, take my food and do all other actions like Mahavir. I did not do so on my own accord, but the actions so happened of themselves. I tied my cloth round my waist so that it might look like a tail and walked jumping. I ate nothing but fruits and roots, which again I did not feel inclined to eat when skinned. I spent much of my time on trees and always cried, 'Raghuvir, Raghuvir', with a deep voice. Both my eyes assumed a restless expression like those of the animals of that species, and it is marvellous that the lower end of my backbone lengthened at the time by nearly an inch ... (In course of time it assumed slowly its previous natural size when the mastery of that mood over the mind has ceased)".

Sri Ramakrishna having the vision of Devi Sita: When Sri Ramakrishna was intensely calling on Sri Ramachandra with the attitude of Mahavir Hanuman, he had the vision of Devi Sita, the Shakti of Sri Ramachandra, Who came and merged inside his body. Sri Ramakrishna described this incident as follows: "One day at that time I was sitting under the Panchavati - not meditating, merely sitting - when an incomparable, effulgent female figure appeared before me illumining the whole place. It was not that figure alone that I saw then, but also the trees and plants of the Panchavati, the Ganga and all other objects. I saw that the figure was that of a woman; for, there were in her no signs of a goddess, such as the presence of three eyes, etc. But the extraordinary, spirited and solemn expression of that face, manifesting love, sorrow, compassion and endurance, was not generally seen even in the figures of goddesses. Looking graciously at me, that goddess-woman was advancing from north to south towards me with a slow, grave gait. I wondered who she might be, when a black-faced monkey came suddenly, nobody knew whence, and sat at her feet and someone within my mind exclaimed, 'Sita, Sita who was all sorrow all her life, Sita the daughter of king Janaka, Sita to whom Rama was her very life'. Saying 'Mother' repeatedly, I was then going to fling myself at her feet, when she came quickly and entered this (showing his own body). Overwhelmed with joy and wonder, I lost all consciousness and fell down. Before that, I had had no vision in that manner without meditating or thinking. That was the first vision of its kind. I have been suffering like her all my life perhaps because I saw first of all Sita, who was miserable from her birth."
