How did Ramakrishna s aptitude for inner experience translate into the lives of the ordinary man and women he inspired? The 31 devotees in THEY LIVED WITH GOD had to face addiction, abusive husbands, disobedient children, indifferent or hostile relatives, bereavements, and spiritual doubts and misgivings. Particular attention is paid to the way they faced death. Their failures and triumphs are entertaining, practical examples for anyone seeking to work and live with an awareness of God s abiding presence. The revised second edition has been enlarged to include three new biographies; Bhavanath Chattopadhyay, Narendra Nath Mitra, and Tejchandra Mitra.

. . . never before has the immensely vivid background to Ramakrishna s life been so apparent as in this beautiful book, which describes in rich detail for the first time, the stories of his lay devotees. . . . It is salutary to discover how thoroughly the lives of ordinary Indian people were and to a considerable extent still are permeated by the profound spirituality of Hinduism, which gave their existence dignity and a sense of real meaning. One can clearly see from the courageous examples set by these householder disciples of Sri Ramakrishna that it is essential for us to continue to live in the world as they did but with a fresh spirit of dedication to God. --Science of Thought Review
