How Mother Goddess Appeared Before Sri Ramakrishna?

Sri Ramakrishna Paramahamsa had the vision of Mother Goddess. He used to talk with her just like talking to any other person. Sri Ramakrishna has explained how Mother Goddess appeared before her.

There was an unbearable pain in my heart because I could not see the Mother.

Just as a man wrings a towel with all his strength to get the water out of it, so I felt as if my heart and mind were being wrung out.

I began to think I should never see Mother. I was dying of despair. In my agony, I said to myself:  What is the use of living this life?

Suddenly my eyes fell on the sword that hangs in the temple. I decided to end my life with it, then and there. Like a madman, I ran to it and seized it.

And then I had a marvelous vision of the Mother, and fell down unconscious. It was as if houses, doors, temple and everything else vanished altogether; as if there was nothing anywhere!

And what I saw was an infinite, shoreless sea of light; a sea that was consciousness. However far and in whatever direction I looked, I saw shining waves, one after another, coming towards me. They were raging and storming upon me with great speed. Very soon they were upon me; they made me sink down into unknown depths. I panted and struggled and lost consciousness.
