The Gospel of Sri Ramakrishna
The Gospel of Sri Ramkrishna tells of the unique life and teachings of spiritual Master, Sri Ramakrishna. Sri Ramakrishna who was born in a simple Indian village and received little in the way of formal education. However, from an early age he felt, with great intensity, a desire to see God. Throughout the book we are constantly reminded of the pure devotion inherent in the life and spirit of Sri Ramakrishna. Frequently we become aware of the mystical ecstasy’s Ramakrishna would repeatedly enjoy. To the credit of the author M, we feel a glimpse of this devotional consciousness; the book is far more than just dry words, describing facts and theories. Any spiritual seeker can derive great inspiration from this book. In particular it will encourage us to pursue the direct path of love, devotion and surrender.
Swami Vivekananda a biography by Swami Nikhilananda.
If Sri Ramakrishna was the source of mystical knowledge, Vivekandana, was his faithful disciple who strove to manifest his Master’s light. Vivekananda was not just a saint and liberated Soul, he felt the necessity of awakening his fellow man from ignorance, leading them to their own liberation. Throughout this well written biography we become aware of Vivekananda’s spiritual depth and also his desire to serve others selflessly. Through this biography the indomitable spirit of Vivekananda is clearly shown. It is not possible to read this book without being infused with some of Vivekananda’s remarkable spirit: "Arise, awake and stop not till the goal is reached."
Diary of Saint Maria Faustina Kowlska – Divine Mercy in My Soul
The diary of saint Maria Kowalska gives a revealing insight into a contemporary Christian Saint. The depth of her devotion and obedience is both revealing and inspiring.
During her brief life on earth she lived as a humble nun, unknown to the outside world. The remarkable feature of her life was her inner life and connection to her spiritual guide Jesus Christ. She explains in simple and clear language the divine grace and blessings that she frequently experienced. Because she had such a deep inner connection to the source of divine consciousness, she could willingly and happily submit to the many trials, humiliations and sufferings that came her way. The power of the book makes you realise that if we can discover the divine within, there is nothing that you cannot face in the outer world. Although she died in obscurity in 1938, her writings led Pope John Paul II to hail her as "the great apostle of Divine Mercy in our time."
