Like Ramana Maharshi, Sri Ramakrishna was an avatar "in the line from Babaji down to Yogananda" (Benjamin Creme (1993), Maitreya's Mission, Vol.II, p.73). "Avatars are not actually members of this planet's Spiritual Hierarchy. They 'come in' from outside the planet." (Benjamin Creme (1997), Maitreya's Mission, Vol.III, p.63)

Originally recorded in Bengali, in five volumes, by a disciple of Sri Ramakrishna, this volume is a complete translation, with an Introduction by Swami Nikhilananda, and a Foreword by Aldous Huxley.

Includes twenty-six photographs with scenes from the life and background of Ramakrishna, among which the beautiful photograph of Swami Vivekananda as a wandering monk.

Swami Omananda references The Gospel of Sri Ramakrishna several times in her book The Boy and the Brothers (1959).
