The truth is not about characterization and physical identification. This book simply simplifies the experience of truth by a true yogi.Mr M simply records. He doesn't have any idea or belief. He simply writes his Master's life and interactions with people. That is amazing. Because if you start identifying, characterizing and defining truth you miss the point. You live truth. That is the best you can do. This book simply without saying that says that. It is sad the world still has not woken up to Ramakrishna. ( )

This book is a jewel. For anyone seeking to increase their bhakti (devotion, love of God), this book is the medicine you seek. It is sweet, moving, profound, and it gently weaves together every Vedantic philosophy and every spiritual path on earth into one radiant Love. ( )

The Gospel of Sri Ramakrishna as translated by Swami Nikhilananda offers the reader a penetrating view into the spiritual wisdom of India. On account of his deep mystical experiences and constant absorption in God, Sri Ramakrishna (1836 - 1886) is regarded as being of the stature of Krishna, Buddha, and Christ. The Gospel is the record of Sri Ramakrishna's conversations, which are unique in their breadth and depth. Profound spiritual truths are described in simple words and vivid stories, revealing the divinity of man and the spiritual foundation of the universe. This volume is a mine of inspiration, wisdom, theology, and metaphysics.

This 1106 page volume contains an introduction (70 pages) by Swami Nikhilananda that narrates the main events of Sri Ramakrishna's life and briefly sketches the people and the doctrines associated with him. Also, includes 26 photographs, a detailed glossary, and an index.
