Knowledge leads to Unity, Ignorance to Diversity (Sri Ramakrishna)

Perhaps the best way to approach the life of Sri Ramakrishna is through the “Gospel of Sri Ramakrishna” written in Bengali by Mahendranath Gupta (M), and translated into English by Swami Nikhilananda and edited in Chennai (India) by the Sri Ramakrishna Math.

Since the complete study of the Gospel of Sri Ramakrishna would exceed the scope of this study, only the most significant points will be studied such as his meeting with Totapuri,  Sri Sarada Devi or Swami Vivekananda as well as his realizations of other religions such as Christianity or Islam.

In addition, some passages from Volume I of the Gospel of Sri Ramakrishna have been compiled so that the student can know the infinite wisdom of the Master. These passages include the dialogues that the Master had with his disciples, including Swami Vivekananda and which were compiled by Mahendranath Gupta (M). When reading them the student will almost have the feeling of being present in these dialogues given the accuracy and high level of detail with which Mahendranath Gupta (M) compiled the Gospel. The student will be able to discover the important influence of the Bhagavad Gita on the Master. We strongly urge the student to read and study this Gospel and meditate on its teachings.
