Here is one sweet incident of meeting Srimad Radha Raman Charan Das Dev with Sri Ramakrishna.

Hope you all will love this.....

Once during mid of the month of Vaisakh (Summer Month), 1289 Bengali Calendar year ( 1883 AD ) one farmer came with his dead son to Ramakrishna Paramhansa at Dakshineswar Kali Temple. His son was dead because of bite of king cobra at nearby jungle. He was praying to Thakur Ramakrishna for doing something for his son. Ramakrishna assured him “Do not worry, wait, He is just coming, who is going to revive your son”.
Then Thakur Ramakrishna ordered the farmer to keep the dead body of his son outside the door of the temple covering with new cloth and place one full bowl of milk with banana.
Within a short while Srimad Radha Raman Charan Das Dev ( Bodo Babaji) came with a large procession of Nam Samkirtan completely obsessed in chanting
“(Bhaja) Nitai Gaur RadheyShayam
(Japa) Hare Krishna Hare Ram”.

With panjabi (kurta) made of fine silk having buttons made of gold, walking stick in hand and with stylish shoe, Bodo babaji was in peculiar appearance but being completely absorbed in chanting forgot everything about surroundings. Thakur Ramakrishan jumped and garlanded him with “mala” from Ma Kali and hugged him. Both went mad with swattik vikaar ( Asru, kampa, pulakadi ) and remained unconscious. After sometime on regaining the consciousness Thakur Ramakrishna told Babaji Maharaja
“He has kept me here at Dakhsineswar , has he kept you at Nadiya?” as if he knew Babaji Maharaj for long.

After sometime Thakur Ramakrishna told Babaji Maharaj “ The reason he has sent you here , please finish that job”. In reply Babaji Maharaja told “You also can do that, why you are asking me?” After some kind of quarrel on this issue again Babaji Maharaj started Kirtan , everyone gone mad , they started dancing, laughing with divine pleasure.
Fine panjabi, dhoti, golden buttons started flying off from Babaji Maharaja’s body…only dour koupin remained.
Suddenly one big king cobra appeared from jungle and kissed the feet of the dead body of Farmer’s son and drunk the milk with banana. After that snake disappeared towards west side of the jungle. Farmer’s son opened his eyes . Kirtan became wild. Thakur Ramakrishna standing aside started clapping and laughing like a child and shouted “Jay Ma Dayamayai”.

Yes please. Do you have the photo of Bara Baba dancing with a flower garland on his head and one arm raised up?
