From the Author:

"This is the story of a phenomenon. I will begin by calling him simply that, rather than "holy man,""mystic,"or "saint"; all emotive words with mixed associations which may attract some readers, repel others.

"A phenomenon is always a fact, an object of experience. That is how I shall try to approach Ramakrishna . . . I only ask you to approach Ramakrishna with the same open-minded curiosity you might feel for any highly unusual human being."

From the Back Cover:

India has produced many spiritual giants because of her wealth of spiritual tradition. One of the greatest was Ramakrishna (1836-1886). His life was a testament to truth, universality, love and purity.
