By Swami Tapasyananda, 284 Pages, Paperback.
Swami Tapasyananda, a Vice-President of the Ramakrishna Math & Ramakrishna Mission, was President of Sri Ramakrishna Math, Madras during 1971-1991. A profound scholar, deep thinker and prolific writer, he was a very diligent worker in the orchard of the Lord. He was never happier than when an individual approached him for the clarification of a spiritual doubt. There was nothing heavy or pontifical about his way of answering questions. He spoke freely and often with humor and laughter. He took enormous pains to discuss problems minutely and was particular that the explanations were lucid. He was concerned not so much in expounding theory as in pointing out the practical means of attaining excellence.
