Sri Ramakrishna is dancing, mad with divine love. As he dances, he is entering into samadhi. He stands there, in that state of samadhi, body motionless, eyes fixed, a smile upon his face, his hand on the shoulder of a beloved bhakta. And then, as the mood ends, he dances like a mad elephant! Regaining outer consciousness, he is improvising a song:
Round and round
Your throngs of devotees!
And by your own dancing
Make them dance, Mother!
Again I say:
Dance, Mother, just once
In the lotus of my heart!
You who are full of Brahman:
Dance in all Your world-bewitching beauty!”
(From “Sri Sri Ramakrishna Kathamrita” - 1.12.7)
(Translated from the Bengali by Swami Ambikananda Saraswati)
