Sayings of Sri Ramakrishna
Sri Ramakrishna (1836-1886) is considered one of the most famous Indian saints. He lived in the 19th century in the temple complex of Dakshineswar near Calcutta. After performing spiritual exercises from various traditions for years and coming to an end with them, disciples turned up, married and unmarried young men, the latter of whom founded the monastic order after his death. Attracted by his strong personality and inner purity, many visitors from all walks of life also came to be in his presence, to ask their questions and listen to his teaching. In his spontaneous, simple way, he taught them, using examples from everyday life and parables, of which this collection of 1120 sayings and parables testifies.
