This is the source biography of Ramakrishna (1836-1886), written by his monastic disciple, Swami Saradananda, and translated into English by Swami Chetanananda. It is derived from first hand sources including interviews with those who knew him. It is also an interpreted description of the entire range of Ramakrishna’s spiritual disciplines and experiences, explained as much as possible in terms of reason and common empirical experience, with reference to Hindu scriptures and spiritual traditions, Western philosophy, Hindu psychology, and Western religious tradition. The setting is Northeast India from 1775 to 1886. . . . for experienced meditators this book offers delightful and profound answers to deeper questions about traveling the spiritual path. . . . for scholars this book offers the source biography for Ramakrishna's life and teachings, as well as an authentic look into India's spiritual history and its various religious and philosophical traditions. . . . for those simply interested in adventure, this book provides absorbing details of the journey through consciousness of one of the greatest spiritual figures of all time. "Sri Ramakrishna was one of the greatest of India's spiritual adepts of recent times, actively embodying India's profound tradition of plurality. By assimilating the sadhanas, customs and practices of different faiths into his own personal practice, he presented a powerful example of respect for other traditions, even while maintaining a deep fidelity to his own. His transparently pure and well-documented life remains a guide and inspiration to millions on their spiritual path. I am sure many readers will be grateful to Swami Chetanananda for his English translation of Swami Saradananda's authoritative biography of Sri Ramakrishna from the original Bengali." - His Holiness the Dalai Lama "Detailed eyewitness accounts of spiritual geniuses -- whose impact on history far surpasses that of kings and potentates -- are second only to sacred scriptures in the place they occupy in the library of humanity. Now, at last, we have a splendid translation of the source biography from which all previous accounts of Sri Ramakrishna have drawn. Swami Chetanananda's long-awaited translation of Sri Ramakrishna and His Divine Play is an epic event in the unfolding saga of world spirituality." - Huston Smith, author of The World's Religions and Why Religion Matters "That someone should live so fully, burn with divine love so ardently, and teach so profoundly is very rare indeed, but it is all the more unusual to have a detailed contemporary account of such a life.. . . This extraordinary literary work communicates a real sense of Ramakrishna, his life and times." - Francis X. Clooney, SJ, Parkman Professor of Divinity, Harvard University "The life and teachings of Ramakrishna, an itinerant mystic who espoused the essential truth of all religion, speak directly to the spiritual yearning of humanity… This new translation of Saradananda's inimitable opus is a rare treasure, one that vividly re-creates the experience of being in the presence of an illumined being and reveals anew the implications of such illumination for the rest of us." - Phil Catalfo, Yoga Journal "This new translation gives us the opportunity to read the life story of this remarkable holy man . . . magnificent." - Library Journal ". . . particularly timely in its testimony of the vitality of all religions and the need for a harmonious religious pluralism." - Publishers Weekly

Sri Ramakrishna's life is a life of spirituality in practice, a sublime sonnet with a singular note of God consciousness, a summary of all that the scriptures of the world have to say, and even much more. To contain such a boundless life and personality within a few pages is certainly as audacious a task as to attempt to contain the ocean in a pot. Yet this book published by Advaita Ashrama, a Publication House of Ramakrishna Math, Belur Math, humbly attempts to portray his life and personality in a clear and candid style.

"This book provides deep insights into the life and personality of Sri Ramakrishna Paramahansa. Describing his family background and early life, it discusses at length his marriage with Sarada devi, his life-long celibacy, his devotion to Goddess Kali and his philosophy of Advaita. Taking a lose look at his teachings and methods of imparting them, it tries to interpret the spiritual experiences of Sri Ramakrishna of assimilating different religions and sects, indicating the great path of religions synthesis—acceptance of all religions and rejection of none.

Ramakrishna as We Saw Him offers the reader a penetrating view into the spiritual wisdom of India. Ramakrishna (1836-1886) was a unique Indian saint who experienced Truth in his own faith as well as in other religious traditions. He taught, "So many faiths, so many paths." The forty-five reminiscences in Ramakrishna as We Saw Him are from disciples, friends, and relatives. They describe in detail Ramakrishna's God-intoxicated life, his daily activities, his teachings and parables, his love and humor. REVIEWS “Ramakrishna As We Saw Him is a rich addition to the literature available on Sri Ramakrishna. These extensive, detailed and interesting reminiscences of those who knew him document an important moment in India’s modern spiritual history. They provide the modern reader with a vivid sense of how Sri Ramakrishna lived daily the spiritual message he taught, and how he excelled in opening a path for God into the human heart. Readers of every culture and religion will profit from reflection on these accounts and the spiritual and human truths they communicate.” Francis X. Clooney, S.J., Parkman Professor of Divinity, Harvard University “The true measure of a collection of reminiscences is the manner in which the subject of reminiscence emerges. In this regard, the present collection is a masterful achievement....” Gerald James Larson, Religious Studies, U.C., Santa Barbara “The picture that emerges from these various testimonies is of a saint perpetually in samadhi, one who drew others mystically into God, who astonished officials and students alike with his profundities.” The Book Reader “This remarkable work covers forty-five personal accounts of relatives, 14 monastic disciples (including Vivekananda), householder disciples and admirers who knew Ramakrishna well. Many of these sources have been translated into English for the first time, thus adding to the almost video-real picture of 19th century Ramakrishna.” HINDUISM TODAY

For many, "Great Swan" is Lex's greatest work -- a true classic. The sanctity, delightful playfulness, wisdom, power, devotion, and spiritual intensity of one of the most inspiring spiritual teachers of all time permeate every page. Blissfully unconventional, Ramakrishna (1836-1886) was a prime mover in the transmission of Eastern mystical practices into the West's spiritual renaissance. "Great Swan" may well be the next best thing to a personal meeting with him.

Sri Ramakrishna has received homage both from contemporary and posterior humanity. But the one man, who comprehended him in entirety, by rising to his own heights of effulgence, was Swami Vivekananda, his foremost disciple, co-partner, and heir. Of Ramakrishna and Vivekananda, it must be said that the one would have been, so to say, incomplete without the other. Vivekananda was rooted in Ramakrishna, and the Parama- Hamsa blossomed out in the Swami.

“Maddening, funny, playful and beautiful...Barker has once again invigorated an old form -- the historical biographical novel -- through electric wit and sheer bedazzlement.” --The Washington Post To the world, he is Sri Ramakrishna--godly avatar, esteemed spiritual master, beloved guru. To Rani Rashmoni, she of low caste and large inheritance, he is the brahmin fated to defy tradition. But to Hriday, his nephew and longtime caretaker, he is just Uncle--maddening, bewildering Uncle, prone to entering trances at the most inconvenient of times, known to sneak out to the forest at midnight to perform dangerous acts of self-effacement, who must be vigilantly safeguarded not only against jealous enemies and devotees with ulterior motives, but also against that most treasured yet insidious of sulfur-rich vegetables: the cauliflower. Rather than puzzling the shards of history and legend together, Barker shatters the mirror again and rearranges the pieces. The result is a biographical novel viewed through a kaleidoscope. Dazzlingly inventive and brilliantly comic, irreverent and mischievous, The Cauliflower delivers us into the divine playfulness of a twenty-first-century literary master.

Since the publication of Sri Ramakrishna's first biography, readers have been familiar with the awesome figure of a spiritual personality who established a direct liason with the divine and preached the most enlightened religious eclecticism in simple vernacular. All subsequent studies on the paramahamsa have been predicated on the monastic Vedantic interpretation of his career and character.This study is a pioneering attempt to uncover the human face behind the mask of the Paramahamsa. Using rare Bengali sources, it is an entirely new look at the saint. In his search for the historical and human figure, the author reexamines the saint's life and thought, and delves into his childhood experiences presenting him as a simple, gregarious, semiliterate rustic with a complex sexual dilemma and spiritual hunger who sought a solution to his troubled psyche in an eclectic piety of faith and fun.

Excerpt: 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. Christopher Isherwood unfolds a fantastic story with a calm finesse...
