Swami Vivekananda once said: ‘Sri Ramakrishna is not exactly what the ordinary followers have comprehended him to be. He had infinite moods and phases.’ On another occasion he said, ‘Basketfuls of philosophical books can be written on each single sentence spoken by the Master!’
The thought-provoking essays of this book are the results of the revered author’s reverential reflection on that great life. It is hoped that a study of them will help the readers towards acquiring deeper reverence and comprehension of Sri Ramakrishna’s sublime life and profound teachings.
These pages contain a deep and inspiring reflection on the multi-faceted motherhood of the Holy Mother, Sri Sarada Devi, the divine consort of Sri Ramakrishna, by the author in simple language. It is a reflection born of his reverent contemplation on her life for many years.
