19 years old Vivekananda came to Ramakrishna and asked, “You are talking God, God all the time. Where is the proof? Show me the proof!”
Ramakrishna said, “I am the proof.”
Vivekananda was expecting some great intellectual explanation on God, But Ramakrishna said, “I am the proof God exists.”
Vivekananda did not know what to say and he left.
Three days later, he came back and asked, “Okay, can you show me God?”
Ramakrishna asked, “Do you have the courage to see?”
Vivekananda said, “Yes”
Ramakrishna just placed his foot on Vivekananda’s chest and Vivekananda went into samadhi for 12 hours. He never asked another question in his life after that.
Swami Vivekananda words that describe self-realization,
“The knowledge of the Absolute is absolute in itself. No amount of study will give this knowledge. It is not theory; it is realization. Cleanse the dust from the mirror; purify your own mind. In a flash you realize that you are the Brahman and your self is Its reflection. In other words, the Brahman is known to every human being as “I am”. But man does not know himself as he is.
The Atman (Brahman) is self-illumined. Cause and effect do not reach the Atman. This disembodiedness is freedom. The Atman – the Brahman is beyond what was, or is, or is to be”.
