Sri Ramakrishna is one of the greatest spiritual masters to have lived on this earth. The God-man of nineteenth-century India did not found any cult, nor did he show anew path to salvation. His message was his God-consciousness. Atruly divine, God-realised soul, Sri Ramakrishna's life demonstrated the meaning of spirituality and the harmony of all religions. In this pithily written and delightfully evocative book, the author brings out the endearing simplicity and catholicity of Sri Ramakrishna. The Master is not one of those serious, formidable figures of dry religiosity. Indeed, Sri Ramakrishna's life is a mart of joy and dipped inirres istible humour. Sri Ramakrishna illustrates the exquisite art of living; a radiant love without limit suffuses his being and fills ours. This book provides fresh insights into the life and teachings of Sri Ramakrishna and is a valuable addition to the existing literature on the Great Master.
