Isherwood unfolds a fantastic story with a calm finesse.... This is a fresh and important contribution to religious mysticism" --New York Times, 1965
From the Author
"This is the story of a phenomenon. I will begin by calling him simply that, rather than "holy man,""mystic,"or "saint"; all emotive words with mixed associations which may attract some readers, repel others.
"A phenomenon is always a fact, an object of experience. That is how I shall try to approach Ramakrishna . . . I only ask you to approach Ramakrishna with the same open-minded curiosity you might feel for any highly unusual human being."

Top Customer Reviews
anyone with prior knowledge of ramakrishna's life would find this book a decent re-hash of material found in other books ( most notably those by the vedanta press ) . all in all , worth the buy .
By contrast, Isherwood keeps the narrative going, occasionally dipping into background information on Hinduism, in such a way that you feel close to the amazing Ramakrishna.
