Sri Ramakrishna Paramahansa


Sri Gopala Baba visited the Ramakrishna Ashram in Bangalore at a young age. He was very impressed to see the disciplined life of the inmates in the Ashram. He used to express his desire to lead such a disciplined life, to his brothers and sister.

Sri Gopala Baba’s love and respect for Sri Ramakrishna Paramahamsa was immense. He used to follow all the instructions of his spiritual guide Sri Prabhudananda. He was extremely fond of hearing Sri Ramakrishna Paramahamsa’s Aarathi song. Sri Prabhudananda introduced him to all the teachings of Sri Ramakrishna and Sharada Mata. Sri Gopala Baba was very quick to learn all the spiritual practices and was identified as an ideal candidate to receive Sanyasa Deeksha. He had also disclosed this at home and there was silent acceptance amongst the family as they knew young Gopala was different and that this was his calling.
