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 present book explores how the snow-white glow of the Gospel Reveals itself as a rainbow of varied ideas and inspirations when passed through 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 ranging from to humanism. The book will definitely intrigue a newer interest into the Gospel of Sri Ramakrishna as a Universal Treasure and for many a gist unopened which can make a fisherman a better fisherman, a student a better student and a lawyer a better lawyer a better lawyer as envisioned by Swami Vivekananda.
