A Brilliant book about a great spiritual master. The relationships of Ramakrishna and his disciples, his simple yet profound style of teaching and highest level of existence of a yogi is beautifully presented in this book. Ramakrishna is not any other spiritual master. He is the one who gave Swami Vivekananda to the world. If yoga is popular in the US it is because of the work done by Swami Vivekananda. Ramakrishna gave us the Swamiji. This book tells us how Ramakrishna lived his life. The author is pristine and profound in his presentation.
