Sri Ramakrishna in Today’s Violent World (Discussing The Message of Sri Ramakrishna in the Context of overcoming Violence and Hostility)
Description
Back of the book

This is the message of Sri Ramakrishna to the modern world, ‘Do not care for doctrines, do not care for dogmas, or sects, or churches or temples; they count for little compared with the essence of existence in each man, which is spirituality; and the more that is developed in a man, the more powerful is he for good. Earn that first, acquire that, and criticise no one, for all doctrines and creeds have some good in them. Show by your lives that religion does not mean words, or names, or sects, but that it means spiritual realisation.

We live in an age of violence. Though violence has been a scar on the human consciousness from time immemorial, never has it assumed such scale, shape and dimensions as in this age. Violence cannot be checked by merely providing arms to sell-defence groups, making stringent laws and holding peace meets. While all these measures have a limited role to play, what is needed is a new and better perspective wherein humanity’s spiritual needs are met and nourished. It is only when a man is spiritually impoverished and is cut off from the Source of his being—which is full of peace, love and joy—that he becomes violent and cruel. In a relative perspective, to advocate non-violence means to spread the message of spiritual growth and strong personal character.

Sri Ramakrishna has a special role to play in this context. He dealt with the issue of violence by living a spiritually vibrant life. His life, though led in the calm precincts of Dakshineshwar Kali Temple near Calcutta, transformed the social and cultural landscape of 19th century India. And he continues to inspire and transform people all Dyer the world. Having practised the spiritual disciplines laid down in major world religions, he himself became living example of the spiritual unity of mankind and of Godhood. How much remains to be learnt from his extraordinary life by the numerous warring sects and religions of the world! How much keenly is the gentle light of hi life and message needed to day more than ever before!

In December 2004 The Vedanta Kesari is spiritual and cultural monthly of the Ramakrishna Order published from Sri Ramakrishna Math Chennai brought out a special issue on Sri Ramakrishna’s relevance in today’s violent world. The articles that originally appeared in this issue are now being made available in a book from.

We hope this volume will help to understand the role of Sri Ramakrishna in preventing and curing humanity of the disease of violence.

Thank you very much for the Shri Yantra with Navaratna which has arrived here safely. I noticed that you seem to have had some difficulty in posting it so thank you...Posting anything these days is difficult because the ordinary postal services are either closed or functioning weakly.   I wish the best to Exotic India which is an excellent company...
