By Swami Shivananda, A Brother-Disciple Of Swami
Sasi Maharaj (Swami Ramakrishnananda) was the true personification of love and purity. Such purity, both of mind and body, I have yet to see. His love and devotion for Sri Ramakrishna, the ideal and goal of his life, knew no bounds. They can be compared favourably only with those of Mahavir (Hanuman) to Sri Ramachandra. His love and affection for his brotherdisciples, Swami Vivekananda, Swami Brahmananda and others—whom he used to take as part and parcel of Sri Ramakrishna—bordered on worship. With him there was no distinction between high and low, rich and poor. He was solicitous for every one's welfare. He would receive all with open arms and give them all he had. He sacrificed himself at the altar of duty—which was to worship the Master in every being and to help each to realize the Divine within. He himself would scrupulously observe what he wanted others to follow. He came in this world for Sri Ramakrishna and served Him with his whole heart and soul and returned to Him. Swami Vivekananda appropriately named him Swami Ramakrishnananda.
