Aratrika Hymns and Ramanam

Translated by Swami Tapasyananda, 95 Pages, Paperback.

"Aratrika" means the vespers or evening service conducted in a shrine or any other holy place. By extension the term is also applied to the hymns sung during such services. The hymns included in this section are all the inspired compositions of the Direct Disciples of Sri Ramakrishna and are sung during or immediately after the rites connected with the Aratrika in all the centers of the Ramakrishna Math and Ramakrishna Mission.

"Ramanam" is a liturgical composition expounding the glory of Sri Rama through a series of names that highlight the main incidents in the life of Rama.
