Publisher's Summary

He alone teaches who has something to give, for teaching is not talking, teaching is not imparting doctrines, it is communicating. The present upheaval of the spiritual tide, the waves of which, traversing nearly half the world, have touched the shores of America, was produced by the Christlike character and divine personality of Bhagavân Srî Râmakrishna - revered and worshiped in India today as an ideal manifestation of the divine glory. 

His life was so extraordinary and unparalleled that within 10 years after his departure from earth, it aroused the admiration, wonder, and reverence not only of all classes of people in his own country, but of many distinguished English and German scholars of the 19th century.

Book very good narration disappointing

Excellent spiritual book for all religions. Narration should have been done by an Indian to be precise someone who has the knowledge of Swami Ramakrishna and Sanskrit, Many Sanskrit words mispronounced which led to disappointment.

If you're involved with Vedanta or are interested

I was a member of the Moth (Vedanta Church) for about 13 years in the USA. I thought it was far superior to all the very narrow Christian religions I had been involved with before (this was 25 years ago now). I started because i married a Hindu and left because of divorce, but I never had anything other than the greatest admiration for it.

My one complaint is that there was no formal meditation taught there, I was told that this usually required becoming a monk. This may have changed with the populaization of meditation over the last decade - I dont know.

I did find what I was looking for in the Buddhist Thai Forest tradition which stresses meditation (daily and retreats) and is available to me. Note that many forms of Buddhism do not stress meditation and are heavy into ritual which after practicing (meditation) long enough you realize are just empty trappings. Though you always pay reverence to these rituals of others, really become quite a waste of time after some spiritual progression.. I think it was Sri Ramkrishna who said paraphrased) "You can say my religeon is right, but you should never say another's is wrong". Rituals may aid your state of mind (and in developing a better mind will help develop better kamma), but you can accomplish that without them.Intrinsically on their own they are empty and useless - but if they help you personally.. do it. So my suggestion is Meditate, meditate, meditate and dont get distracted with ritualized religion.

Just Listen Once

All you have to do is listen once. If your Heart and mind isn't moved by the Gospel of Sri Ranakrishna, then you weren't listening. Go back to the beginning and listen to every word. I now keep a print of Sri Ramakrishna on my alter, a book of his teachings by my bedside, and the Soul of all he represents in my heart.

Very difficult to hear narration

Listening this book became annoying at some point for, only due to the extreme impersonal and robotic Narration.
It’s a great book but needs better Narrator of you truly want to enjoy the gems in it.

great book destroyed by poor reading

how can you destroy a pearl of a book?

by employing an uneducated, unprepared and highly morose reader.

avoid buying. half the book will be lost in wrong or indifferent pronunciation.

rather, read the book.

Character of truly enlightened being

Life of Ramakrishna through various life incidents shows that how the enlightened being would live the life, it helps us to identify true yogis and understand various fundamental vedic principles and methods.

Highly Recommended!

Great book but.....

Great book by a great writer. Not impressed by story teller, that's the reason taking two stars away. Very strong accent and sometime hard to understand, spoils the deliciousness of the contents.

An inspiring account of Divine Manifestation

This moving account of Sri Ramakrishna is awesome and inspiring. So many subtle questions about the meaning of Life, the Universe and everything are answered here. My best advice is not to think nor rationalize the message, but relax and let it flow.
