Born into a poor Brahman the highest-ranking social class family, Ramakrishna had little formal schooling. He spoke Bengali and knew neither English nor Sanskrit. His father died in , and his elder brother Ramkumar became head of the family. At age 23 Ramakrishna married Sarada Devi , a five-year-old girl, but, because of his advocacy of celibacy , the marriage was never consummated , even though they remained together until his death.

Sarada Devi was later deified and is still considered a saint by devotees who treat her as the Divine Mother. In poverty forced Ramkumar and Ramakrishna to leave their village to seek employment in Calcutta now Kolkata. There they became priests in a temple dedicated to the goddess Kali. In , however, Ramkumar died.

According to traditional accounts, Ramakrishna was on the verge of suicide when he was overwhelmed by an ocean of blissful light that he attributed to Kali. After each of these sadhanas, Ramakrishna claimed to have had the same experience of brahman , the supreme power, or ultimate reality, of the universe.

The Muslims draw out the liquid and call it pani. The Christians draw out the liquid and call it water, but it is all the same substance, no essential difference.

The message that all religions lead to the same end was certainly a politically and religiously powerful one, particularly because it answered in classical Indian terms the challenges of British missionaries and colonial authorities who had for almost a century criticized Hinduism on social, religious, and ethical grounds. That all religions could be seen as different paths to the same divine source or, even better, that this divine source revealed itself in traditional Hindu categories was welcome and truly liberating news for many Hindus.

A small band of disciples , most of them Western-educated, gathered around Ramakrishna in the early s, drawn by the appeal of his message and by his charisma as a guru and ecstatic mystic. The headquarters of the mission is in Belur Math, a monastery near Kolkata. The Ramakrishna Order also played an important role in the spread of Hindu ideas and practices in the West, particularly in the United States.
