Swami Ramakrishnananda, the author of this book, was a great monk and direct disciple of Sri Ramakrishna. He was known for being a deep thinker and accomplished speaker who practiced what he preached.
A compilation of his 14 talks, this book raises many philosophical questions, analyses them and provides answers. These talks are timeless, proven by the fact that they were delivered during the years 1893-1911 and yet ever relevant. Earlier, they had been published as articles in the magazines of the Ramakrishna Order and also as books under different titles.
The chapters can be read independently and therefore seekers of various persuasions will benefit from this book.
