The Light Divine: Life and Philosophy of Ramakrishna
Description
Introduction

The ordinary men of this world, sometimes, become so ordinary that extraordinary men have to appear here to lift them up to no ordinary heights, if not extraordinary ones. These tall men who walk this earth, may seem to be no different from others at first, but soon grow to superhuman proportions revealing their true nature even as Visnu (the all-pervading Divinity) appeared first as Varnana (the dwarf) and then as Trivikrama (one who occupied all the three worlds).

Ramakrsna-s-also known as 'Sri Ramakrsna Paramaharnsa' or just 'Paramahamsa'belongs to this rare species. His life was religion-in the highest sense-in practice. He lifted up religion from the morass of rituals and dogmas to great mystical heights as effortlessly as Varaha (the Boar-incarnation of Visnu) the earth. An earnest study of his life-his doings and sayings--can not only inspire us but also elevate us to transcendental levels.

I am so glad I came across your website! Oceans of Grace.

I got the book today, and I appreciate the excellent service. I am 82, and I am trying to learn Sanskrit till I can speak and write well in this superb language.
Dr. Sundararajan
Wonderful service and excellent items. Always sent safely and arrive in good order. Very happy with firm.
Dr. Janice, Australia
Thank you. I purchased some books from you in the past and was so pleased by the care with which they were packaged. It's good to find a bookseller who loves books.
Ginger, USA
नमास्कार परदेस में रहने वाले भारतीयों को अपनी सभ्यता व संकृति से जुड़े रहने का माध्यम प्रदान करने हेतु, मैं आपका अभिनंदन करती हूँ| धन्यवाद
Ankita, USA
Namaste, This painting was delivered a little while ago. The entire package was soaking wet inside and out. But because of the extra special care you took to protect it, the painting itself is not damaged. It is beautiful, and I am very happy to have it. But all is well now, and I am relieved. Thank you!
Janice, USA
I am writing to convey my gratitude in the service that you have provided me. We received the painting of the 10 gurus by Anup Gomay on the 2nd January 2019 and the painting was packaged very well. I am happy to say that the recipient of the gift was very very happy! The painting is truly stunning and spectacular in real life! Thank you once again for all your help that you provided.
Mrs. Prabha, United Kingdom
I am writing to relay my compliments of the excellent services provided by exoticindia. The books are in great condition! I was not expecting a speedy delivery. Will definitely return to order more books.
Dr. Jamuna, New Zealand
I just received my powder pink wool shawl. It is beautiful. I bought it to wear over my dress at my son's wedding this coming Spring & it will be perfect if it's chilly in the garden. The package came very promptly & I couldn't be more pleased.
Pamela, Canada
I very much appreciate the tailoring service you offer. Many friends are delighted to see my last purchase. Hopefully more customers will contact you soon.
