FIRST MEETING WITH
RAM KRISHNA PRAM HANS

His first introduction


to Ramakrishna occurred in a
literature class in General Assembly
Institute, when he heard Principal
Reverend W. Hastie lecturing
on William Wordsworth's
poem à 
and the poet's
nature-mysticism. In the course of
explaining the word   in the
poem, Hastie told his students that
if they wanted to know the real
meaning of it, they should go to
Ramakrishna of Dakshineswar .
This prompted some of his
students, including Narendranath
to visit Ramakrishna.
WITH RAMKRISHNA
His meeting with Ramakrishna
Paramahamsa in November 1881 proved to
be a turning point in his life . About this
meeting, Narendranath said, "He
[Ramakrishna] looked just like an ordinary
man, with nothing remarkable about him.
He used the most simple language and I
thought 'Can this man be a great teacher?'ʹ
I crept near to him and asked him the
question which I had been asking others all
my life: 'Do you believe in God, Sir?' 'Yes,' he
replied. 'Can you prove it, Sir?' 'Yes.' 'How?'
'Because I see Him just as I see you here,
only in a much in tenser sense.' That
impressed me at once. I began to go to that
man, day after day, and I actually saw that
religion could be given. One touch, one
glance, can change a whole life.͞
