Rāmakrishna shows christians like myself a way to respond to the mystery, beauty, and holiness of non-christian religious experiences.

Francis X. ClooneyHarvard Divinity School, Author Of Comparative Theology: Deep Learning Across Religious Borders

The spirit of rāmakrishna, as given in his reported conversations, and his life . . . Constitute a unique and absorbing document for any serious student of the philosophy of religion. Rāmakrishna is revealed as that rarity, the real thing in metaphysical mysticism and saintliness. He belongs in the great tradition of classic religious leaders.

Irwin EdmanColumbia University, Author Of Four Ways Of Philosophy

The fervent love of God, nay, the sense of complete absorption in Godhead, has nowhere found a stronger and more eloquent expression than in the utterances of Rāmakrishna. How deep he has seen into the mysteries of knowledge and love of God we see from his sayings.


Max MüllerOxford University, General Editor Sacred Books Of The East

Rāmakrishna’s teachings on the essential unity of the great religions comprise hinduism’s finest voice on this topic.

Huston SmithProfessor Emeritus, Syracuse University, Author Of The World’s Religions

The story of rāmakrishna paramahamsa’s life is a story of religion in practice. His life enables us to see god face to face…. His sayings are not those of a mere learned man but they are pages from the book of life…. They, therefore, leave on the reader an impression which he cannot resist.
