Late one night, Hriday saw Sri Ramakrishna walking towards the Panchavati. Thinking that his uncle may need His waterpot and towel, Hriday took the items and followed Thakur. As he did so his spiritual sight opened. He saw the figure of Sri Ramakrishna become luminous as it walked ahead of Him. This was no longer a figure of a human being, it was made of light! The whole Panchavati was illumined by the light which streamed from His body. Hriday now saw that the figure was not walking at all, but moving through the air, just above the ground.

He could not believe it! He thought he must be dreaming and rubbed his eyes. But the shining figure did not vanish, nor did the trees and shrubs around it. And he became aware that this light was none other than the light which formed Sri Ramakrishna. Light had merely detached itself from light, in order that the Master might have someone to serve Him. Hriday, was wild with joy at this discovery. “Oh. Ramakrishna”, he cried, “You and I are the same! “Why should we stay here, let us go from land to land, setting men free from bondage”.Late one night, Hriday saw Sri Ramakrishna walking towards the Panchavati.
