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
Fantastic! Thank You for amazing service and fast replies!
Sonia, Sweden
I’ve started receiving many of the books I’ve ordered and every single one of them (thus far) has been fantastic - both the books themselves, and the execution of the shipping. Safe to say I’ll be ordering many more books from your website :)
Hithesh, USA
I have received the book Evolution II.  Thank you so much for all of your assistance in making this book available to me.  You have been so helpful and kind.

I Gede Tunas
You guys are beyond amazing. The books you provide not many places have and I for one am so thankful to have found you.
Lulian, UK
This is my first purchase from Exotic India and its really good to have such store with online buying option. Thanks, looking ahead to purchase many more such exotic product from you.
Probir, UAE
I received the kaftan today via FedEx. Your care in sending the order, packaging and methods, are exquisite. You have dressed my body in comfort and fashion for my constrained quarantine in the several kaftans ordered in the last 6 months. And I gifted my sister with one of the orders. So pleased to have made a connection with you.
EB Cuya FIGG, USA
