By Swami Ramakrishnananda, 119 pages, Paperback.
Swami Ramakrishnananda, the founder of Sri Ramakrishna Math, Madras, more fondly known as Sashi Maharaj, was a towering personality, physically and intellectually. As Sri Ramakrishna's apostle to the South, he was responsible for broadcasting the sublime teachings of his Great Master and establishing a number of Math and Mission centers in this part of India. A practical Vedantin, he took classes and delivered public lectures with a zest, matched only by the meticulousness with which he conducted worship in the shrine. "The Universe and Man" comprises six lectures delivered by him when the first permanent building of the Madras Math was inaugurated in 1907.
