With the morning spent resting after travelling from Mumbai to Kolkata the previous evening, everyone was very eager for the Divine visit to Belur Math. Bhagawan arrived during the late afternoon as everyone had lined the roads in anticipation. He proceeded straight to the sanctum of the Sri Ramakrishna Temple. Thereafter, He was taken to the room of Swami Vivekananda and meditation room of Sri Ramakrishna Paramahamsa. Upon visiting these places, speaking to all who had gathered He said that every brick, stone, dust particle, leaf and blade of grass here was full of sacrifice.
He continued saying, “This is the very same place where both, God Descended and Man Ascended. This place has seen God Himself Descend in Human form and Mam ascend to Divinity” – “Tyaagenaikena Amrutatva Maanashuh”. Only through Sacrifice can immortality be attained. With that feeling of purity and sacrifice, spend time here and pray .
This place has become immortal because of the sacrifice of the people living here since ancient times”.
Bhagawan then proceeded back to the temple of Sri Ramakrishna for Aarti and after sitting for a while in the prayer hall attached to the Sanctum of the temple, Bhagawan returned to His residence whilst the devotees, students and staff boarded buses to visit the Dakshineshwar Kali temple.
