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.
My name should not be made prominent. It is my ideas that I want to see realized. The disciples of all the prophets have always inextricably mixed up the ideas of the Master with person, and at last killed the ideas for the person.The disciples of Sri Ramakrishna must guard against doing the same thing. Work for the idea, not the person.
