Bhagavad Gita, Sri Ramakrishna, Swami Vivekananda

Sri Ramakrishna (Bhakti) and Swami Vivekananda (Jnana)



Sri Ramakrishna was all Bhakti on the outside, but on the inside he was all Jnana

Realization of the Bhagavad Gita Course - Master in Bhagavad Gita and Yoga Philosophy

Reflection by Pedro Nonell (Sri Ramakrishna and Swami Vivekananda)

The Bhagavad Gita shows us four main paths of yoga: Karma, Dhyana, Bhakti and Jnana Yoga. All of them valid.

Sri Ramakrishna was all Bhakti on the outside, but on the inside he was all Jnana
Sri Sarada Devi, Gospel of Sri Ramakrishna, M. Gupta, Swami Sarvapriyananda

Bhagavad Gita in Spanish Sri Ramakrishna (Bhakti) y Vivekananda (Jnana) Bhagavad Gita in Portuguese Sri Ramakrishna (Bhakti) and Vivekananda (Jnana).

I believe this paragraph teaches us the divine combination between Jnana Yoga (Knowledge) and Bhakti Yoga (Devotion).

Sri Ramakrishna's love for Swami Vivekananda created a balance between his intellect and his heart. By instinct, Naren was a philosopher. Sri Ramakrishna made him a devotee. As a young man he had been agnostic. Furthermore, Swami Vivekananda was one of the great Karma yogis in history.

Sri Ramakrishna used to say:

“The Jnanis are generally dry in their appearance; but the Bhaktas are sweet to the eye.”

Swami Vivekananda, once said to a disciple of his:

“Sri Ramakrishna was all Bhakti on the outside, but on the inside he was all Jnana; I am all Jnana yes; but within my heart everything is Bhakti.”

What do you think of this Jnana Yoga & Bhakti Yoga combination?
