Description

When the divine incarnation of an age comes, he brings along his entourage… We all know that Sri Ramakrishna had some close companions who assisted him in his divine play. …I believe that our Revered Ranganathanandaji Maharaj was one of those worthy successors.

…I think that after Swami Vivekananda nobody has been able to spread Indian spiritual thought in the world as Swami Ranganathanandaji Maharaj had done. …It is true that after Swami Vivekananda, even his brother-disciples stayed abroad for long and did a lot of work. But the way Sri Ramakrishna got things accomplished through Ranganathanandaji Maharaj can only be said to be a miracle of God. It is astonishing; simply astonishing!

…what rare karmayogi he was! One can also see in him the remarkable characteristics of a jnanayogi. And then, look at his bhakti. All in all, an extraordinary example! Those who adorn the spiritual seat of Sri Ramakrishna [i.e. become the President of the Order], He reveals His special powers in them. Revered Swami Ranganathanandaji Maharaj was a burning example of this truth.

The Monk without Frontiers is a compilation of articles written by the monks of the Ramakrishna Order, nuns of the Sarda Math and Ramakrishna Sarada Mission, and devotees and admirers of Swami Ranganathananda. There are 136 pieces of writing on the Swami presenting his multi-faceted personality in an inspiring as well as interesting manner.

The Swami, in his long illustrious monastic career of about eight decades, had contributed in diverse fields. The most significant and notable one, for which he was reputed all over the world, was his role as the cultural and spiritual ambassador of India to the world.

Through the articles of this book it is interesting to note that people viewed him diversely through their diverse frames of mind. He was looked upon as “the Second Vivekananda”, and some saw in him the re-advent of Adi Shankaracharya.

A very colorful picture of the Sami thus emerges out of the pages of this book. It is an invaluable tribute to this great spiritual leader of our times and his astounding achievements in the realms of spirituality, philosophy, religion, culture, and global integration.





COMMENTS:

Our country is rich in thought, in its philosophy, in its culture. But somehow, we have not been able to project these outside or even to all of our own people, perhaps because so many of us look at these matters rather superficially. But Swami Vivekananda and Swami Ranganathananda have been notable exceptions to this….
== Smt. Indira Gandhi (The late Prime Minister of India)

Swami Ranganathananda was a noble soul who immersed himself into the mission of spreading the message of Vedanta to humanity spread throughout spirit and a great spiritual leader.
== Dr. A.P.J. Abdul Kalam (Former President of India)

One of the greatest teachers of our times, Swami Ranganathananda was a teacher, a scholar, a sage, a companion of the needy, and above all a deeply religious person and a true humanist in the best traditions of our ancient culture and civilization.
== Dr. Manmohan Singh (Ex-Prime Minister of India)

I think Swami Ranganathananda is the Adi Shankaracharya of this present age. Adi Shankaracharya was a great monk as well as a great scholar who could give lucid expositions of the intrinsic philosophies of the Bhagavad Gita, Upanishads, the Puranas and other scriptures. Swami Ranganathanandaji came some centuries after Adi Shankaracharya with all the virtues and extraordinary characteristics of his predecessor. In every respect, the Swami was identical to Shankaracharya.
== Sri. L.K. Advani (Former Deputy Prime Minister of India)
