RAM KRISHNA MISSION TEMPLES

Swami Vivekananda was closely imbued with Shri Ramakrishna's ideas about women.

At another place we find: "One day Sarada Devi, as she was massaging the Master's feet, asked him, "What do you think of me?" Quick came the answer, "The Mother who is worshipped in the temple is the mother who has given birth to this body and is now living in the concert-room,
and she again is massaging my feet at this moment. Verily I always look upon you as the visible representation of the Blissful Mother."

Months passed in this way, but not once did the minds of the divine couple come down to the sense-plane. This was possible, because both husband and wife had their minds attuned to the Infinite. Shri Ramakrishna complimented Sarada Devi in unequivocal terms. He used to say:
"After marriage I anxiously prayed to the Divine Mother to root out all sense of physical enjoyment from her mind. That my prayer had been granted I knew from my contact with her during this period."

While the part she played when Rama- krishna lived was great enough, after his passing away, she played a far more significant role and influenced Swami Vivekananda. She was about to exchange her garb and symbols of wifehood to those of widowhood when in a vision
Ramakrishna forbade her to do so. She then boldly went about as she was. She bad been authorized by Ramakrishna to initiate people into spiritual life and she carried out that mission to the end of her life. Vivekananda treated her with great respect and he hardly took up any
important work without her blessing. She became the Mother of the ashram and all the disciples of Ramakrishna paid her homage to the end.
