Description

Streams of multi-branched sadhanas found an appropriate confluence in Sri Ramakrishna and the extent and depth of his spiritual realizations beggar description. The ablest biographer may find it difficult to comprehend the evolution of the Master's inmost self and episodes of his divine transformation. Therefore the story of his unique life is best told by himself. This book is an attempt to form an autobiography of Sri Ramakrishna from his utterances about his life.


Although biography and an autobiography are considered complementary to each other, the autobiography of a mystic bears more positive and authentic value than that of the mystic’s biography. Mystics, in general, live within their spiritual world. As a result, biographers living on the external planes are not found to be fully capable to precisely portrait the subliminal self of the mystics. The absence of autobiographies in this case, therefore, cannot be fulfilled by other means. The uniqueness of published autobiographies of Vijaykrishna Goswami, Kuladananda Brahmachari, Annada Thakur, and Yogananda Paramahamsa. Substantiate this veracity.

Streams of multi-branches sadhanas all at the same time fond an appropriate confluence in Sri Ramakrishna. Keeping the focus on ‘As many faiths, so many paths’, the Master performed various unique sadhanas, resulting in spiritual illumination, and simultaneously churning out of his subliminal Self in difficult to comprehend the evolution of the Master’s inmost self, and episodes of divine transformation, resulting from the long and arduous journey of his sadhanas during the period from the first vision of the Divine Mother at the Dakshineswar Kali temple and arrival of his devotees. This profound, but sublime Consciousness would, perhaps, be incomprehensible to the common people without an autobiography of Sri Ramakrishna.
