This book provides interesting and illuminating insights into the life and personality of Revered Tapasyananda Maharaj, a former Vice-President of the Ramakrishna Order, through the biographical sketches and the reminiscences of both monastics and lay.
The book is divided into three sections. Section I deals with biographical aspects of Revered Tapasyananda Maharaj, letters of Swamis Brahmananda, Shivananda, Saradananda, Nirmalananda, and Vireswarananda to either Revered Tapasyananda Maharaj’s mother or to his brother, and letters of Revered Tapasyananda Maharaj to his own family. Sections II and III contain the reminiscences of Revered Tapasyananda Maharaj by monastic and lay respectively.

The distinguishing feature of the reminiscences is that they come from a wide spectrum—monastics who either lived with Revered Maharaj or were closely associated with him and devotees from all walks of life, from learned professors to workers and flower vendors, from intimate disciples and devotees to professionals who met him occasionally—providing a kaleidoscope of myriad perceptions these people had about Revered Maharaj.

The appendix section includes Swami Tapasyananda’s reminiscences of Swami Shivananda, his visit to Ramana Maharishi, and Swami Tapasyananda’s message during his departure from Trivandram to Madras.

    Recently I have purchased the book `Swami Tapasyananda As We Knew Him` published by the Sri Ramakrishna Math, Mylapore, Chennai 600 004 through online.
    The great life of Swami Tapasyanandaji Maharaj is a burning example of dedication and sincere services to the humanity. His simple life, his time management, his `full time` services to the `Great Master`, his motherly love, his methodical work style are all coming from his pure heart and his pure character.
    This book has three sections. In section I, there is a biographical profile of Swami Tapasyanandaji Maharaj, letters by direct disciples of Sri Ramakrishna and other senior monks of the Order to his family and glimpses. In section II & III, there are 39 reminiscences by monastic and 56 reminiscences by lay devotees. All the reminiscences are inspirable, and we can enrich ourselves through these holy reminiscences. There are many black-white old photographs and one full-size color photograph of Swami Tapasyanandaji Maharaj in this book.
    The price of the book is very cheap (Rs 150) considering its hardbound cover with 780 good quality pages.
    My sincere thanks and deepest regards to the publisher of this great book (Sri Ramakrishna Math, Chennai) and all others who are associated with this great work.
