In this age of ours, when cart-loads of books are turned out by your commercialized publishing houses-books which entertain, bore or debase, but seldom instruct and much less inspire-the ‘Life of M. and Shri Ramakrishna Kathamrita’s comes as a refreshing shower on a parched desert. “…the Gospel of Sri Ramakrishna recorded by M. will remain a perennial spring of inspiration and enlightenment to spiritual aspirants at all levels of evolution in all climes.” - from the Foreword to this book.
-A faithful, realistic but reverential, account for those who attach importance to spiritual values especially emphasized in the life and teachings of Sri Ramakrishna.
In his own words M. was ‘an insignificant person’, who had ‘lived by the side of an ocean’ (of spirituality) and kept with him ‘a few pitchers of the sea water’. When a visitor came, he ‘entertained him by that’. He would speak of nothing else but his Master’s words.
