Description
Preface

We have great pleasure in placing before our readers this selection of the writings and addresses of His Holiness Srimat Swami Vireswaranandaji Maharaj, 10th President (1966-85) of the Ramakrishna Math and Ramakrishna Mission.

The title of the present volume is significant. Though the lectures and the essays belong to different years and contexts, all of them deal with the burning problem of the modern age-the quest for an ideal that can guide us through the stormy sea of life. Humanity today is at the cross-roads. Never before in the history of the world has the predicament of man been so agonising. Science has given us the power of the gods, but we are bent on using that power like angry apes for mutual destruction. Any day, a nuclear war may wipe off the human race itself from the face of the earth. In the midst of material plenty, we pine for inner peace. It is in this crisis that the life and teachings of Sri Ramakrishna become highly relevant to us. Through his multifarious spiritual disciplines carried out with scientific precision he has established that there is but one Reality and we are all sparks of that Divine. The purpose of life is to realise God and this can be achieved by any spiritual path sincerely followed. In the present book Swami Vireswaranandaji Maharaj gives an authentic articulation of the teaching of Sri Ramakrishna and Swami Vivekananda and of their relevancy in solving the spiritual problems that face us in our individual and collective life.

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 !
