Sri Ramakrishna Paramhansa was originally named Gadadhar Chattopadhyay by his parents. Ramakrishna Paramhansa was an image breaker since his childhood. Ramakrishna stressed on the realization of God and according to him religion served as a means for the achieving this goal.
Ramakrishna's spiritual realization made him believe that various religions are various ways to reach the Absolute, and that the Ultimate Reality could never be expressed in human terms. He founded Ramakrishna Mission and Ramakrishna Maths in Belur Math.
Ramakrishna Paramhansa taught the basic truths of religion through fables, metaphors and songs. One of famous disciples of Paramhans is the well-known saint-philosopher and orator, Swami Vivekananda.
