Sri Ramakrishna's travels and pilgrimages can be studied from different points of view. His experiences at each place were extraordinary and unforgettable. This untiring research work gives us a wonderful glimpse of the joyous and blissful personality of Sri Ramakrishna.

A Jnani has no need to go from place to place, because he finds fulfillment in being still. But Sri Ramakrishna was not just a Jnani; he was a Vijnani. After climbing to the terrace and finding that the terrace is made of the same materials as the steps leading to it, he realized that he had a duty to come down the steps so that he could share with other earnest souls the riches he had discovered.

That is one explanation of the pilgrimages he undertook to various places like Varanasi and Vrindavan. Pilgrimage forms one of the musts in a devotee’s life and Sri Ramakrishna’s activities were all meant to be role models for aspirants to emulate. It was not to secure merit for himself that he undertook arduous journeys but to demonstrate to Bhaktas how a pilgrimage should be accomplished. Also it is said that holy places derive their holiness from the visits made to them by holy persons.

As we go through Swami Prabhananda’s narrations we can see how the traditional holy spots shine all the brighter by Sri Ramakrishna’s paying homage to them.
