Teachings of Latu Maharaj, a direct disciple of Sri Ramakrishna.
- 316 pages, Indian paperback
Latu progressed so quickly in the spiritual realm that, considering the different circumstances of his background and ours, he is far greater than us. We were all born of high ancestry and came to the Master with an intellect refined by formal education, whereas Latu was entirely illiterate... He had to hold on to a single idea throughout his life. Starting from a very ordinary and low state, by keeping his mind unruffled [through] meditation and other spiritual practices, Latu became fit to receive the highest spiritual wealth.
Swami Siddhananda was Latu Maharaj’s attendant and was fortunate to hear the spiritual instructions in person and quietly jotted down notes later published as Sad Katha in Bengali.
Excellent book. I’m also following Swami Sarvadevananda’s Tuesday class on this book on you tube “Voice of Vedanta” . It’s very well written and and in today’s time is so needed in Society.
The great swami's words touch the heart in their sublime simplicity. Beautifully written and translated, this book is a joy to read. I am recommending it to friends.
