कृण्वन्तो विश्वमार्यम्


A few years ago I read very strange things in a monthly magazine published by Sri Ramkrishna Ashram. In its editorial (editor was a Swami well educated and most probably an Engineer) it was written that (i) Sri Ramkrishna Paramhansa was incarnation of Lord Shiva. (ii) His was not an ordinary human birth. Some Divine Light appeared in a temple and entered in to the body of Sri Ramkrishna’s mother. This Divine Light was the real cause of his birth. (iii) Just after taking birth, this small new born baby of a few minutes or hours rushed towards ash and smeared it on his little body, showing that he was the incarnation of Shiva. Shiva also loved ash.

In fact, such things are creating hurdles in spread of true Vedic concepts.
