This original version of The Gospel of Rāmakrishna is based on the author M.’s own English translation from the Bengali. A classic but until recently neglected work, it is presented here in an edited form for the contemporary reader. It is introduced with a comprehensive biography of Shrī Rāmakrishna (1836-1886), written by his most famous disciple, Swāmī Vivekānanda. Also included are several b/w photographs of Rāmakrishna and his disciples.
“The story of Rāmakrishna Paramahamsa’s life is a story of religion in practice. His life enables us to see God face to face.... His sayings are not those of a mere learned man but they are pages from the Book of Life.... They, therefore, leave on the reader an impression which he cannot resist.”
