Memoirs of the early days of the Ramakrishna Order when the monastic disciples of Ramakrishna were still alive.
- 376 pages, Indian paperback
Swami Apurvananda joined the Ramakrishna Order in 1918 and was initiated by Holy Mother. The book was written near the end of his life, and translated from the Bengali. In the Divine Realm is a fascinating account of Swami Apurvananda's years at various centers of the Ramakrishna Order. Culled from memories of "the old times", the book is replete with wonderful anecdotes, reflections and reminiscences of the monastic disciples of Sri Ramakrishna. Much new information about Sri Ramakrishna, Holy Mother, and their disciples.
Prepare to be transported!
Original writing by Swami Apurvananda, Holy Mother's disciple and Swami Shivanada's sevak, beautifully translated and edited for Western readers. An eloquent memoir that informs and inspires.
