About the Book:
The Gospel of Sri Ramakrishna is an English Rendition of the
Bengali Original Sri Ramakrishna Kathamrita by Mahendranath Gupta who hid himself
behind his penname ‘M’ . The Bengali title Kathamrita verily sums
up the essence of the book. In the ancient Indian mythology the gods and the
demons had churned the ocean in search of amrita, which could confer eternity.
Sri Ramakrishna who needs no introduction today, has churned the Ocean of Life
and has come up with some vibrant ideas which are eternally relevant and can
confer immortal strength, infinite inspiration and never ending joy to one and
all akin to the mythical amrita. Thus the words or Kathain Kathamrita remains
deathless and guides one to a life of immortal enlightenment.

the prism of the wise brains. The current effort was to focus on the relevance
of The Gospel of Sri Ramakrishna in Diverse field of human interest and activity
