God is in the Vagina- Sri Rmakrishna
Sri Ramakrishna Paramahamsa (1836 – 1886) is considered as one of the most respected spiritual masters of the modern time in India.
Ramakrishna’s explicitly sexual language shocked 19th-century Westerners, even scholars Max Müller who were otherwise his admirers. Müller wrote that his language was at times “abominably filthy”. He admitted however that such direct speech was natural to contemporary hindus, “where certain classes of men walk stark naked”, and should not be considered intentional filthiness or obscenity.
Sri Ramakrishna was also known as a ‘tantrik’; he worshiped even his wife Sarada as Goddess.
It is known that many spiritual masters go eccentric and erratic (or erotic or mystic?) in their utterances, gestures and teachings. It is told that Ramakrishna used the most rustic, colloquial, classic, gross Bengali language to communicate with or abuse his disciples and people. He often used filthy, sexy words to convey his message of clarity. These masters or mystics often reveal ‘Vedanta’ in the very ‘vagina’, so to speak. They know not what is holy or unholy. It’s the middle class mortals and minds that drum beat and blow the siren of morals and holiness. God knows no bounds of morals or sermons. It seems, the morals are for the mortals, never for the immortal ones.
“God is in the Vagina” – Sri Ramakrishna
One translation of the Bengali original of Sri Ramakrishna Bodhamrtam, translated into English read, “I will remove all my clothes and dance before the women; what do you care about it?” “God is in the vagina. God lets me see him in the copulation of two dogs.”
Ramakrishna had used much more obscene and vulgar language [than this] in his conversations. But Nikhilananda, in translating, had corrected all that, changing it so that people would be presented with the image of a holy man to hold in their minds.
Regarding Ramakrishna, U.G. Krishnamurti said, “The source for both God and sex is the same. As long as you think of God, there is always sex in its shadow.”
