This book is a word-by-word translation of the original Bengali Edition of the Gospel of Sri Ramakrishna.
It contains the dialogues of the Bengali saint Ramakrishna written with almost stenographic accuracy. This edition is different translation of the Swami Nikhilananda Gospel of Sri Ramakrishna which was published in the forties and showed the restraint of that era.
All 5 volumes of the set are now available in English.
If you have read the Nikhilananda version, this translation will seem like a new Gospel.
The author, known as "M," was a disciple of The Hindu saint Sri Ramakrishna. He is famous for his role of transcribing the teachings of Ramakrishna.
