Go Forward - Letters of Swami Premeshananda (Vol 2)
Swami Premeshananda was a venerable monk of the Ramakrishna Order who was greatly respected by one and all for his life of spirituality and service.We find in the pages of this book the basic questions of life placed on the firm foundation of the philosophy of Vedanta. We learn how abstract spiritual ideas took concrete form in Sri Ramakrishna's religious practices and how by clinging to the ideal of Sri Ramakrishna we can solve all the problems of our life. And we find all this presented in a manner which is intelligible, rational, scientific, scripturally sound, and at the same time full of sweet humour.
True religion is not talk, or doctrines, or theories, nor is it sectarianism. It is the relation between soul and God. Religion does not consist in erecting temples, or building churches, or attending public worship. It is not to be found in books, or in words, or in lectures, or in organizations. Religion consists in realization. We must realize God, feel God, see God, talk to God. That is religion.
