At Ramakrishna’s suggestion, he went to the temple himself to prey. but as soon as he faced the goddess he could not ask for money or wealth, but instead asked for Vivek and Vairagya that day marked Narendranath’s full spiritual awakening and he was drawn to an ascetic way of Life.

Swamiji’s curiosity about religion

Brahmo Samaj recognized a god in opposition to idolatry and superstition worshiping Hinduism. To satisfy his intellectual search for God, Narendranath used to visit prominent spiritual leaders of all religions and ask them one single question: “Have you seen God?” Each time he left without a satisfactory answer.

He asked the same question to Sri Ramkrishna at his residence in the temple precinct of Dakshinewar Kali. Without a moment’s hesitation, Sri Ramkrishna replied, Yes I have seen God as clearly as I do. We will see each other, just in a much deeper sense, Vivekananda was initially unimpressed by Ramkrishna’s simplicity. he was amazed at Ramkrishna’s response. he gradually won over this contentious young man with his patience and love. The more Narendranath Dakshineshwar visited, the more answers his questions received.
