Today is aradhana of Sri Balakrishnananda swami

Sri Balakrishnananda swami appeared in his dream, imparted Sri Nrisimha Mantra to him and also gave him Srimad Bhagavatam. After this Sri Ramakrishna's Hari Bhakti [devotion to Lord Hari] reached its pinnacle. He began to remain in solitude doing Mantra japa and reading the Bhagavatam. Due to the Grace of Sri Balakrishnananda, Sri Ramakrishna earned deep love for Srimad Bhagavatam; and, through reading the Bhagavatam, earned deep Jnana.

 

Almost always he was silent or chanting the Divine Names of Lord Narayana. Filled with the nectar of the Lord's Name he would at times dance, at times sing, at times shed profuse tears, at times cry out loudly. Wherever the Lord's stories were recited he would go and listen to it. But this would push him into ecstacy and he would begin to sing, dance and cry. He would experience horripilation. He would cry out loudly, "Narayana! Narayana!" At times he would fall down in a swoon.
