The story of Sri Ramakrishna's life is as moving as are his teachings. The surreal Hindu Bengali Saint spent a lifetime seeking spiritual enlightenment. beginning in his childhood with a mystical encounter he experienced al the age of six. During his life he would go on to be acknowledged as a great spiritual Master and his teachings and techniques would earn him a following of devoted disciples. Today, slightly more than a century since his death. those teachings have spread far from his home, inspiring countless others, and his message of mankind's deep spiritual unity remains one of critical importance lo the well being of our world.

Sri Ramakrishna: A Prophet for the New Age is a compact. accessible biography, and the first treatment of Ramaknshna's life to emphasize the practical applications of his teachings. Richard Schiffman's compelling portrait chronicles Ramakrishna's short but transcendent life. From his early spiritual trials (the attempts to gain the mystical knowledge of Kali, the Holy Mother, that left Ramakrishna so frustrated he considered suicide), through his initiation info the divine secrets and apprenticeship under a Brahmani Nun, to his ahsram in Dakshinewar, where he trained his disciples until his death, the devout intensity with which the prophet faced life illuminates every page. As the story unfolds, Ramakrishna's remarkable inner journey is recreated through anecdotes, eye-witness accounts, and excerpts from his own speeches.

Richard Schiffman intersperses his narrative with detailed explanations of Ramakrishna's teachings. giving essential background information on Hindu spiritual practices and philosophy. and on the various forms of yoga. His sympathetic style brings the reader close lo the ''childlike" personality and profound spirituality of this great teacher.

RICHARD SCHIFFMAN lived in India for a number of years and studied Hindu spirituality under several spiritual Masters, including: the Jillellamudi Mother and Bhagavan Sri Sathya Sai Baba. He is the author of Mother of All, a biography of the Jillellamudi Mother, and former editor of the Matrusi Journal.
