My Life is My Work

Swami Ranganathananda (Author)
Synopsis This book is the living legacy of the monk Sri Swami Ranganathanandaji, who at the age of seventeen years joined Ramakrishna Sangh. He had a very close intimacy with many direct disciples of Sri Ramakrishna Paramhamsa. While walking in the footsteps of Swami Vivekananda, he gathered the nectar of love and wisdom from them and silently filed countless hearts with these spiritual gifts. This book leads the reader through the different dimensions of Swamiji’s life, providing a glimpse of his oneness with the nature and gives sense of what he meant, when he said “We are identified with god who is in the hearts of all beings”. It is a comprehensive life sketch of this great soul. These photographs span Swamiji’s life from his late teens to his last days in 2005. In them he is seen as a great Seeker, Humanitarian, Acharya, Sage, Vedantist, Messenger, Karmayogi, Guru and the monk whose life glittered forth through the vision of Mother Sarada Devi. Along with valuable photographs, this text opens the life and teachings of Swami Ranganathanandaji, and makes this commemorative volume a great spiritual treasure house.
