By Swami Chetanananda, 655 pages, Paperback.
"God Lived With Them" contains the life stories of sixteen monastic disciples of Sri Ramakrishna, whereas "They Lived With God" contains the life stories of twenty-eight prominent householder devotees. Taken together, these forty-four biographies depict how Sri Ramakrishna's teachings manifested and came to fruition in his disciple's lives. To me, Sri Ramakrishna is like a chandelier and his disciples and devotees are like bulbs of different wattages radiating the light, or wisdom, of their Master." SWAMI CHETANANANDA
