This is a collection of sayings and short fables from Ramakrishna, a Bengali Hindu mystic who lived in the 19th century. The book also includes chapters about Ramakrishna himself; covering his life, his language, and the Vedanta philosophy, among other things. Considered one of the most revered and influential figures in the history of Indian spirituality and often regarded as a saint and a prophet, Ramakrishna's life and teachings are primarily associated with the practice of devotion and the pursuit of spiritual realization. He had a profound and deeply personal spiritual experience, and his primary goal was to attain direct communion with the divine. He did so through intense and sincere worship of various deities, including Kali, Krishna, and Shiva. Ramakrishna's teachings emphasized the universality of religion and the idea that all religions lead to the same ultimate truth. He famously said, 'Joto mot, toto poth' in Bengali, which translates to 'As many faiths, so many paths.' He encouraged his followers to respect and explore different religious traditions to realize the essential oneness of all spiritual paths.
