Description
About the Book

Sri Ramakrishna's Thoughts on Man, World And God is a study on Sri Ramakrishna's ideas on Man, World, God and Spiritual life, in a Vedantic perspective, based on his recorded teachings. There is an urgent need today to make an in-depth study of his ideas and discover their universal dimensions. This book may be considered as the first step towards that goal….

 

About the Author

(1904-1991) was a disciple of Swami Shivanandaji Maharaj, one of the eminent disciples of Sri Ramakrishna. The Swami was a vice-president of the Ramakrishna Order during 1985-1991. He was an erudite scholar in Indian and Western philosophy. He has to his credit many books in English, including the translations of many scriptures. His translation of Srimad Bhagavatam in four volumes has been highly acclaimed in intellectual and devotional circles.

 

Publisher's Note

THIS BOOK BRINGS together Sri Ramakrishna's ideas on the three metaphysical concepts-God, man, and universe--and allied matters.

Swami Tapasyananda (1904-1991) was a vice- president of the Ramakrishna Order and the editor of the Vedanta Kesari from May 1931 to April 1939. A deep thinker and a prolific writer, he has written several books and translated many scriptures into English. Present book is a set of essays originally published as editorials in the Vedanta Kesari in 1939. The material has been rearranged under suitable headings and subheadings are provided for easy reading. The essay on Religious Pluralism first appeared in 1979 as an introduction to Dharma Sagara, a Sanskrit epic poem on Sri Ramakrishna by Dr P.K. Narayana Pillai, a noted scholar. This book is compiled by Br. Srishachaitanya, a brahmacharin of the Ramakrishna Order.

There is an urgent need today to make an in-depth study of Sri Ramakrishna's ideas, to discover his philosophy, and to present it in a systematic format. We hope this book will be helpful to those who wish to take up this challenging task. To the common reader, this book will be of immense value, for it brings together Sri Ramakrishna's thoughts on a wide variety of subjects.
