Description

This book is a dramatic retelling for contemporary westerners, of a series of encounters with the great Bengali sage Ramakrishna (1836-1886), who proclaimed the oneness of all religions and the worship of the blissful divine mother.

By turn playful, brilliant, tender and visionary, Rama-Krishna offers practical instruction, inspiration and trilling glimpses into his state of spiritual intoxication as he meets with devotees and visitors in his room beside the holy river Ganges.

COMMENTS:

“Hixon’s book emphasizes – from the vantage point of the knowledgeable, discerning westerner on the brink of the twenty-first century – the atmosphere that Ramakrishna created through his words, his deeds, and above all the mere fact of his spiritual presence.”
--- Huston Smith

“…as Hixon so accurately points out, ‘Ramakrishna is not a quaint person from an ancient culture, representing a Particular religious background, but an Einstein of the planetary civilization of the near future, a greenhouse for the future evolution of humanity.’ This book thus Contains the ‘Master-key’ that opens all cultures and hearts.”
--- Ken Wilber

“Dr. Hixon writes very well and in this re-creation has tried to make his ‘meetings with Ramakrishna’ as exciting for the present-day reader as they were for those privileged to meet Sri Ramakrishna, alive in the mid-part of the nineteenth century in Calcutta.”
--- Charles S.J. White
