The Ramakrishna Mission: The Making of a Modern Hindu Movement
The Ramakrishna Mission: The Making of a Modern Hindu Movement
Description
From the Jacket:

Most scholarly studies of the Ramakrishna Math and Mission to date have concentrated almost exclusively on the relationship between Sri Ramakrishna Paramhamsa, the Bengali mystic in whose name the movement was created, and Swami Vivekananda, his close follower and the actual founder of the Movement. Such studies have raised questions about the degree of continuity between Ramakrishna and Vivekananda and the nature of the relationship of the Ramakrishna Math and Mission to Hinduism in its wider sense.

This book stands in this tradition of critical studies of the Ramakrishna movement. It offers selected studies of aspects of the movement's development down to the present day and examines the role of personalities, other than Ramakrishna and Vivekananda, who also played a part in the growth of the movement.

Beckerlegge explores ways in which the Ramakrishna movement has been presented by scholars, promoted by its own adherents, and has seen prominent defections from its own ranks. It combines both an overview of several important debates within the study of Ramakrishna and Vivekananda with distinctive studies of the growth of the Ramakrishna movement. This book will be of special interest to historians and religious studies specialists.

About the Author:

Gwilym Beckerlegge is Senior Lecturer and staff tutor in Religious Studies at the Faculty of Arts, The Open University, UK.

Testimonials
I received the Green Tara Thangka described below right on schedule. Thank you a million times for that. My teacher loved it and was extremely moved by it. Although I have seen a lot of Green Tara thangkas, and have looked at other Green Tara Thangkas you offer and found them all to be wonderful, the one I purchased is by far the most beautiful I have ever seen -- or at least it is the one that most speaks to me.
John, USA
Your website store is a really great place to find the most wonderful books and artifacts from beautiful India. I have been traveling to India over the last 4 years and spend 3 months there each time staying with two Bengali families that I have adopted and they have taken me in with love and generosity. I love India. Thanks for doing the business that you do. I am an artist and, well, I got through I think the first 6 pages of the book store on your site and ordered almost 500 dollars in books... I'm in trouble so I don't go there too often.. haha.. Hari Om and Hare Krishna and Jai.. Thanks a lot for doing what you do.. Great !
