Devotion to Guru (Bhakti) - Part 7 By Sri Sri Muralidhara swamiji

Dear All,

Contd.....

Girish Chandra Ghosh was a man full of vices. Name the vice and he had it. However, he had deep affection for Sri Ramakrishna Paramahamsa. Ramakrishna asked him to chant the Lord's Divine Name every morning and evening. Girish Chandra Ghosh said, I cannot. It is not possible for me to chant the Divine Name every morning and evening

Paramahamsa said, "Well! Chant it just before you take your meals."

Girish Chandra Ghosh, "No, Sir! This is not possible for me!"

Paramahamsa said, "Well! Chant just once before going to bed."

Girish, "No! This, too, is not possible for me!"

Paramahamsa said, Well! then, surrender to me. I will take care of you. I will take you to Moksha. Give the power of attorney to me.

Girish Chandra's joy knew no bounds. He thought, ‘what fortune! I can lead my life as I have been living. The Master will do japa for me and take me to Moksha (Liberation).

At once he gave his power of attorney to Paramahamsa.

But, what happened after this? The moment Girish lifted the wine bottle he saw Ramakrishna's face on the bottle. He could not drink. When he visited any woman for company he saw Ramakrishna in her and could not go near her. Girish was unable to carry on life in his old style. He thought, ‘I thought that surrender was very easy. But, it is not so.

Every moment, in all actions, he saw only the Master. He just could not forget him.

!!! Will Continue !!!
