Is There Only One Way To Attain Freedom?
Nag Mahasaya, the householder disciple of Sri Ramakrishna Paramahamsa, was able to escape the chains of samsara (worldly life) by becoming humbler and smaller, with less and less egoism; he became so tiny that he could creep through to safety. Nag Mahasaya felt, “I am the servant of the servants of God” – Dasoham. Vivekananda, another disciple of Sri Ramakrishna Paramahamsa, on the other hand expanded himself until he identified himself with the entire Universe and so, the chain broke unable to contain his majesty. Vivekananda felt that he was the Master, the Isa who was Idam Sarvam, Sada Soham – he was always steady in the conviction that he was That. This is the identity of the Individual and the Universal (Jiva-Brahma-aikya-anusandhanam), the true celestial wedding. Every individual must endeavour to practice this Consciousness and celebrate this union in their lives. Choose one path that best suits your personality and persist in practice until you attain victory!
