CONSECRATION OF SRI RAMAKRISHNA’S NEW TEMPLE AT BELUR MATH
On Friday, 14 January 1938, Swami Vijnanananda got up early in the morning and put on a new ochre cloth. He sat quietly in his chair, waiting for the auspicious moment. He said to his attendant: “When I shall install the Master in the new temple, I shall say to Swamiji: ‘Your consecrated deity has now been installed in the temple you planned, you said that you would watch from on high. Please see now that the Master is seated in the new temple.’” He said later, “Then I vividly saw Swamiji, Rakhal Maharaj, Mahapurush Maharaj, Sarat Maharaj, Hari Maharaj, Gangadhar Maharaj, and others standing in the southwest corner watching the consecration ceremony.”
