I had heard good things about this book and finally got around to reading it.

Sri Ramakrishna is also known as Ramakrishna Paramhans and was Swami Vivekananda's guru.

The book is a selection of stories from the Vedic scriptures and some events from Sri Ramakrishna's life itself. All the stories are written in simple English so that everyone can follow them. However, don't be fooled. Some stories have a deep, deep meaning behind them. You truly enjoy the story once you absorb the actual meaning behind the story and then see in what a simple, clear manner it's been written.

The introduction is a speech by Swami Nikhilananda at New York in 1936 on the occasion of Sri Ramakrishna's centenary birth. It is a beautiful address that vividly explains Sri Ramakrishna's life and experiences.

I recommend not only reading the book but also the introduction as well for it provides the context for the rest of the book.
The great religious teachers such as Buddha, Jesus, Mohammed and Sri Ramakrishna used parables to teach religion. These parables and sayings of Sri Ramakrishna (1836- 1886) are for everyone, men and women, young and old, educated and illiterate. These are 205 parables and tales from the Hindu tradition, many taken from everyday occurrences, told by Sri Ramakrishna. They are grouped under 22 subject headings and drawn mainly from the Gospel of Sri Ramakrishna by "M". Under the subject heading are the parables; for example, under "Men of the world" the parables are "When they are annoyed" and "There is a need for everything".

At the beginning of the book there is an inspirational short account (25 pages) of Sri Ramakrishna's life and message. This was the address delivered by Swami Nikhilananda at New York during the Sri Ramakrishna Centenary in 1936.
Great book with universal teachings. Some of the stories are inspiring and true to life. I buy more of his books. Thanks
