An impressive collection of Swami Turiyananda's letters which are an invaluable treasury of the wisdom of a direct disciple of Sri Ramakrishna.
Swami Turiyananda was without doubt one of the spiritual giants of twentieth century India. We are fortunate to have this masterfully translated edition of the letters of this great monastic teacher. They will appeal both to the spiritual seeker and the more academically inclined students of Hindu spirituality.
As we read his letters, simple in expression but rich in wisdom, compassion and common sense, e discern a teacher ready to speak a consoling world, extend a gentle rebuke, or ask a probing question depending n he need, but in every case always the guide eager to help people untangle and simplify their lives, to ensure and learn from the inevitable ups and downs of the spiritual journey, to master the practice of meditation, and thus to grow steadily in union with God.
