Sri Ramakrishna Paramahamsa , born Gadadhar Chattopadhyay , was a rustic Bengali religious ecstatic who practiced Vaishnava and Shakti bhakti, Vedanta, Tantra, and other spiritual disciplines. Toward the end of his life, he became a guru to Anglicized Bengalis, including Narendranath Dutta—the future Swami Vivekananda—and also became an influential figure in the Bengal Renaissance. He was considered an avatar or incarnation of God by many of his disciples, and is considered as such by many of his devotees today. Though recent academic scholarship has concentrated on his ambiguous sexuality, the Ramakrishna Mission and some other scholars have criticized the work of these scholars.
