The aim of the book was to present to the public in English a short but comprehensive chronological account of the life of Sri Ramakrishna. This book closley follows the chronology and treatment of the Bengali classic, Sri Sri Ramakrishna Leelaprasanga written by Swami Saradananda, a direct disciple of the Master https://sfvedanta.org/books/sri-ramakrishna-the-great-master/. Some of the masterly expositions and abstruse points relating to the Master's life, however, have been purposefully ommitted in the present book. Additional facts have been collected from various other authentic sources. Mahatma Gandhi has kindly written a Foreword in appreciation of the Master.More info →
