Suggested by Ramakrishna that he himself should pray, he went to the temple but couldn’t demand anything material from the goddess and ultimately prayed for a true knowledge and devotion from her.
In order to realize God, he accepted Ramakrishna as his spiritual master who gave him the responsibility of his monastic disciples at the time of his death on 16 August 1886 in Cossipore. While serving his Guru during his last days, Narender experienced the state of ‘Nirvikalpa Samadhi.’
After Ramakrishna’s death, when no one supported his disciples financially, Narender repaired a decaying house at Baranagar and converted it into a monastery for the disciples. There, he used to do meditation and austerities with them daily.
In December 1886, he and other monks took the vow to live a life similar to their spiritual master and Narender acquired the new name “Swami Vivekananda.”
