Swami Turiyananda, a direct disciple of Sri Ramakrishna, was a rare combination of extreme asceticism, sympathy, devotional fervour, scholarship and modern outlook. This book, by Swami Ritajananda, contains incidents, conversation, and extracts from diaries of disciples on the life and teachings of the great Swami. A fine note on Swami Turiyananda in the midst of the peaceful Shanti Ashrama setting, published in the San Francisco Chronicle
, is included in this volume as an appendix.
This book will appeal to all spiritual seekers who will find the treasurable spiritual values embedded in the life and teachings of Turiyananda.
