Dakshineshwar Kali Events:

Ref: Sri Ramakrishna the Great Master - Part 2 Ch 8: Sri Ramakrishna realizing the states indicated by the scriptures: Haladhari, the son of Sri Ramakrishna's uncle, came to Dakshineshwar probably in 1858 and served in the Radha-Govinda temple. Haladhari was devoted to the rites and practices mentioned in the scriptures. He regularly read books like Srimad Bhagavatam, Bhagavad Gita and Adhyatma Ramayana. Once after finishing the temple service he took a pinch of snuff and started a discussion on these scriptures. Sri Ramakrishna came there and said: "I have realized all the states of which you read in the scriptures; I can understand all these". Haladhari could not believe these words of Sri Ramakrishna. He said: "Indeed! You are a big fool. Is it for you to understand all these things?". Sri Ramakrishna said: "I say in truth, One who is within this (showing his own body) explains everything regarding the One of whom you spoke just now". Haladhari could not appreciate this.

Haladhari's opinion of Sri Ramakrishna: When Haladhari saw Sri Ramakrishna performing the worship in the temple with tears flowing from his eyes, singing devotional songs charged with great emotions and his great eagerness for realization of God, Haladhari thought that these states were due to an infusion of divine spirit within Sri Ramakrishna. He said on many occasions: "Ramakrishna, I have recognized your real nature, ... there is surely a charge of divinity within you". But the moment he sat to discuss the scriptures with a pinch of snuff, he became a different man. Then he could not relate the states mentioned in the scriptures with the spiritual states of Sri Ramakrishna.
