Sri Ramakrishna Paramhansa was one of the greatest saints of modern India. Mahatma Gandhi,
in his preface to Life of Sri Ramakrishna, wrote: "The Life of Sri Ramakrishna Paramhansa is
a life of religion in practice. His life enables us to see God Face to face."
The late Kazi Nazrul Islam the revolutionary Muslim poet of West Bengal, composed a
beautiful song on Sri Ramakrishna in Bengali. Kazi saw in him the beginning of the 'Satya
Yuga' or the Golden Age.
In Sri Ramakrishna we can see today what Bertrand Russell demands of modern men,
namely the flowering of knowledge into wisdom. Without this, as Sri Ramakrishna expresses
it, the increase of knowledge will result in an increase of sorrow.
Sri Ramakrishna's teachings were as simple as his life and were often illustrated
with straightforward stories such as the tales told in this Amar Chitra Katha. He stirs our
hearts with his tales about faith just as he makes us laugh gently as the weaknesses and
follies of men.
Gopal and the Cowherd has delighted children all over he world. This story conveys
the power of faith. The absolute faith of Gopal's mother and Gopal's pure love and devotion
to his brother the cowherd who is Lord Krishna, is itself in sharp contrast with his
teachers's disbelief and lack of faith. The Pandit and the Milkmaid and the Learned Pandit
are also tales that stress the importance of faith and devotion.
