Introduction

The ordinary men of this world, sometimes, become so ordinary that extraordinary men have to appear here to lift them up to no ordinary heights, if not extraordinary ones. These tall men who walk this earth, may seem to be no different from others at first, but soon grow to superhuman proportions revealing their true nature even as Visnu (the all-pervading Divinity) appeared first as Varnana (the dwarf) and then as Trivikrama (one who occupied all the three worlds).

Ramakrsna-s-also known as 'Sri Ramakrsna Paramaharnsa' or just 'Paramahamsa'belongs to this rare species. His life was religion-in the highest sense-in practice. He lifted up religion from the morass of rituals and dogmas to great mystical heights as effortlessly as Varaha (the Boar-incarnation of Visnu) the earth. An earnest study of his life-his doings and sayings--can not only inspire us but also elevate us to transcendental levels.
