This books brings Ramakrishna to us in naked simplicity. The devotion, love, wisdom and selfless service which the Master embodied come together effortlessly. The author has obviously had a profound inner awakening himself, allowing him to use a rare combination of gifts.
Robert Schiffman's lively rendition of India during the mid to late 19th century, mixes beautifully with creative, playful and illuminating prose. The pages turn and flow easily; one feels as if they are sitting at the feet of Ramakrishna as he continues to speak the living, primordial voice of Oneness.
One of the best book son Ramakrishna that I have read.
I believe this book is very well written and will be equally interesting to everyone, irrespective of their upbringing or backgrounds. Schiffman makes it very very interesting to the reader. I have already read this book twice! And going to start reading it again soon. Every time I read it, I feel I have learnt something new. I am inspired to read more books about Sri Ramakrishna in the near future.
The part from this book that I love the most is from the chapter "The Coming of Rakhal and Naren". It describes the vision that Sri Ramakrishna had before meeting with Swami Vivekananda on page 143. The book is worth keeping just for that one chapter, and of course the whole book is simply a delight to read.
He really brings the story of this remarkable saint to life. I felt as if I was there watching Ramakrishna's life unfold before my eyes. It was actually like a viceral experience which kept me captivated from the first to the last word.
This was the first book I had ever read about Sri Ramakrishna and I'm so fascinated and moved by what I read in this book that I've already started another book about him called "Great Swan".
Ramakrishna was without a doubt one of the greatest living spiritual masters of all time bar none (and I mean none), a teacher who embraced all faiths as paths to the one supreme God. If all people had his openess, his genuineness and true spiritual sincerity and passion this world would be transformed and transformed peacefully.
I highly recommend this book to anyone who would like to experience the life of this great master.
