Ram Chandra Datta

“After all she was no ordinary wife. Could the wife of someone who was the master of thousands of [spiritual] orphans, the deliverer of unlimited number of reprobates, the jewel of the heart of the Lord of the Universe, deign to acquire the habits of beasts given to sexual appetites? The scriptures approve of man and woman for begetting a son. O Ma, you are mother to thousands of sons and daughters. Do you have to lower yourself to the status of dogs and jackals in order to become mother?”

– Ramchandra Datta, Srisriramakrishna Paramahamsadeber Jibanbrittanta [in Bengali] (Seventh edn. Kankurgachhi, 1357 B.E
