More than a century after the passing of Ramakrishna, one of India's greatest exemplars of God-consciousness and mystical union, his message of harmony and tolerance still inspires millions of people, both in the East and around the world. Through this "Gospel," or spiritual life and teachings, Ramakrishna became known to the world as a saint, a divine incarnation, and a "supremely realized self." The Gospel of Sri Ramakrishna faithfully records a series of conversations with this extraordinary mystical personality who left no written works of his own, sharing his enlightening parables, profound spiritual knowledge, and fascinating accounts of his visions of spiritual union with various religious traditions. This eyewitness account was first recorded in Ramakrishna's Bengali near the turn of the twentieth century. Now you can read The Gospel of Sri Ramakrishna with no background knowledge required. This SkyLight Illuminations edition offers choice selections from the original text, and insightful yet unobtrusive commentary that highlights the most important teachings and parables for the reader without much background in Hinduism, Vedanta philosophy, or Indian religious customs.

For many, "Great Swan" is Lex's greatest work -- a true classic. The sanctity, delightful playfulness, wisdom, power, devotion, and spiritual intensity of one of the most inspiring spiritual teachers of all time permeate every page. Blissfully unconventional, Ramakrishna (1836-1886) was a prime mover in the transmission of Eastern mystical practices into the West's spiritual renaissance. "Great Swan" may well be the next best thing to a personal meeting with him.
