Notes:

Explanation: As we saw above, the early reform movements in Bengal were radical, questioning and criticising tradition very strongly.

  • In response to this emerged the Ramakrishna Mission as an important religious movement.
  • Ramakrishna Paramahamsa (1836–1886), a poor priest in a temple at Dakshineswar near Kolkata, had no formal education but led an intense spiritual life.
  • He had a deep faith in the inherent truth of all religions and tested its belief by performing religious service in accordance with the practices of different religions.
  • He expounded his views in short stories and admirable parables which were compiled by an admirer as Ramakrishna Kathamrita (The Gospel of Sri Ramakrishna).
