The Light Divine: Life and Philosophy of Ramakrishna
Description
Introduction

The ordinary men of this world, sometimes, become so ordinary that extraordinary men have to appear here to lift them up to no ordinary heights, if not extraordinary ones. These tall men who walk this earth, may seem to be no different from others at first, but soon grow to superhuman proportions revealing their true nature even as Visnu (the all-pervading Divinity) appeared first as Varnana (the dwarf) and then as Trivikrama (one who occupied all the three worlds).

Ramakrsna-s-also known as 'Sri Ramakrsna Paramaharnsa' or just 'Paramahamsa'belongs to this rare species. His life was religion-in the highest sense-in practice. He lifted up religion from the morass of rituals and dogmas to great mystical heights as effortlessly as Varaha (the Boar-incarnation of Visnu) the earth. An earnest study of his life-his doings and sayings--can not only inspire us but also elevate us to transcendental levels.

Testimonials
I’ve started receiving many of the books I’ve ordered and every single one of them (thus far) has been fantastic - both the books themselves, and the execution of the shipping. Safe to say I’ll be ordering many more books from your website :)

Probir, UAE
I received the kaftan today via FedEx. Your care in sending the order, packaging and methods, are exquisite. You have dressed my body in comfort and fashion for my constrained quarantine in the several kaftans ordered in the last 6 months. And I gifted my sister with one of the orders. So pleased to have made a connection with you.
