About this audiobook

Sri Ramakrishna is revered in India and the West as a prophet belonging to the spiritual line of Krishna, Buddha, and Christ. Seekers of all religions will find in this book courage and faith, hope and illumination. You will feel God to be very real and within reach. Listen to Sri Ramakrishna’s conversations, and be in the company of a great soul.

Sri Ramakrishna (1836-1886) had a passionate yearning for the vision of God. At the age of sixteen he went to Calcutta, but was disappointed by the materialistic ideals of the people of the great city. Refusing to direct his attention to secular studies, he became a priest in the Dakshineswar temple, where God is worshipped as the Divine Mother of the Universe. By his intense prayer and longing, and through a series of unprecedented spiritual practices, he obtained the vision of God. Through the various systems of Hinduism and the religions of Christianity and Islam, Ramakrishna always reached the same goal of God-consciousness, and said, “As so many faiths, so many paths” – the basis of interfaith harmony today. There came to him all kinds of people, men and women, young and old, educated and illiterate, agnostic and orthodox, who asked him questions about spiritual life and accepted his words as true. Ramakrishna’s love for all people knew no barriers of race, color, or culture, and he spoke freely to everyone who sought his counsel and blessings without expecting anything in return.

This audiobook, read by Paul Bazely, brings to life the words of a great prophet and God-man. This audiobook contains a short biography of Sri Ramakrishna, which is also published separately as an audiobook under the title “Sri Ramakrishna, A Biography,” by Swami Nikhilananda.
