Search for joy is central to life, but unhappiness is one thing that plagues humanity everywhere. Real or lasting joy, Sri Ramakrishna says, is the joy of spirituality. Sri Ramakrishna himself was joy personified. Springing out from its eternal source, the Atman, the joy of spirituality fulfils life, giving it a meaning and purpose.
This book is a collection of 26 articles published in the December 2011 special issue of The Vedanta Kesari, the spiritual and cultural monthly of the Ramakrishna Order.
