Description
About the Book

Sri Ramakrishna's Thoughts on Man, World And God is a study on Sri Ramakrishna's ideas on Man, World, God and Spiritual life, in a Vedantic perspective, based on his recorded teachings. There is an urgent need today to make an in-depth study of his ideas and discover their universal dimensions. This book may be considered as the first step towards that goal….

 

About the Author

(1904-1991) was a disciple of Swami Shivanandaji Maharaj, one of the eminent disciples of Sri Ramakrishna. The Swami was a vice-president of the Ramakrishna Order during 1985-1991. He was an erudite scholar in Indian and Western philosophy. He has to his credit many books in English, including the translations of many scriptures. His translation of Srimad Bhagavatam in four volumes has been highly acclaimed in intellectual and devotional circles.

 

Publisher's Note

THIS BOOK BRINGS together Sri Ramakrishna's ideas on the three metaphysical concepts-God, man, and universe--and allied matters.

Swami Tapasyananda (1904-1991) was a vice- president of the Ramakrishna Order and the editor of the Vedanta Kesari from May 1931 to April 1939. A deep thinker and a prolific writer, he has written several books and translated many scriptures into English. Present book is a set of essays originally published as editorials in the Vedanta Kesari in 1939. The material has been rearranged under suitable headings and subheadings are provided for easy reading. The essay on Religious Pluralism first appeared in 1979 as an introduction to Dharma Sagara, a Sanskrit epic poem on Sri Ramakrishna by Dr P.K. Narayana Pillai, a noted scholar. This book is compiled by Br. Srishachaitanya, a brahmacharin of the Ramakrishna Order.

There is an urgent need today to make an in-depth study of Sri Ramakrishna's ideas, to discover his philosophy, and to present it in a systematic format. We hope this book will be helpful to those who wish to take up this challenging task. To the common reader, this book will be of immense value, for it brings together Sri Ramakrishna's thoughts on a wide variety of subjects.

Testimonials
Your books arrived in good order and I am very pleased.
Christine, the Netherlands
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...
Mary, Australia
Love your website and the emails

I love antique brass pieces and your site is the best. Not only can I browse through it but can purchase very easily.
Indira, USA
Je vis à La Martinique dans les Caraïbes. J'ai bien reçu votre envoi 'The ten great cosmic Powers' et Je vous remercie pour la qualité de votre service. Ce livre est une clé pour l’accès à la Connaissance de certains aspects de la Mère. A bientôt
GABRIEL-FREDERIC Daniel
Namaskar. I am writing to thank Exotic India Arts for shipping the books I had ordered in the past few months. As I had mentioned earlier, I was eagerly awaiting the 'Braj Sahityik Kosh' (3 volumes). I am happy to say that all the three volumes of it eventually arrived a couple of days ago in good condition. The delay is understandable in view of the COVID19 conditions and I want to thank you for procuring the books despite challenges. My best wishes for wellness for everyone in India,
Prof Madhulika, USA
Love your collection of books! I have purchased many throughout the years. I love you guys!
