Shri Ramakrishna

Shri Ramakrishna (1836-1886) was a famous Hindu saint of the late nineteenth century. He was renowned for his own detachment from material life, his dedication to Kali, his generosity towards his many disciples and students, and his many simple but profound spiritual teachings; Shri Ramakrishna's greatest renown, however, may be related to his unique facility to understand at a deeply personal level numerous spiritual paths beyond his own practice of Hinduism (e.g. a variety of Hindu paths, Buddhism, Chrisitianity, Islam, etc.). The remarkable story of his life and teachings is the subject of the book The Original Gospel of Rāmakrishna: Based on M.’s English Text, Abridged (World Wisdom, 2011), a new edition of a classic book on this great Hindu spiritual figure.

Reviews of "The Original Gospel of Ramakrishna"

“Nicely designed — good balance throughout from cover to text.… The compiler has done a lovely job of presenting the material in a way that is accessible and easy to follow more than 100 years after Ramakrishna's death. Nicely done!… The different sections add clarity. Beautiful binding and printing.… This book was very inspiring and it had great insight into a very spiritual person…I liked that it included the history of the man as well as his teachings.… Although this is cited as a revised, abridged presentation of the original version, in order to appeal to a more contemporary readership — it is still an intense treatment of an equally intense and mystical mystery — of the search for God's understanding. However portions contain statement that have the reader desiring to seek a fuller understanding of God as well practical thoughts towards self-awareness. This is a good source for education and spiritual enlightenment.”
