This is the biography of Sri Ramakrishna that we recommend. Exquisitely written by one of the greatest prose writers of the twentieth century, Isherwood was himself deeply devoted to Sri Ramakrishna. As the New York Times wrote: “Christopher Isherwood unfolds a fantastic story with a calm finesse . . . This is a fresh and important contribution to the history of a religious mysticism, a subject of ever-increasing interest in a psychology-conscious age.” This is one of those few books that makes you regret reaching the last page.
