Swami Ramdas was not only an extraordinary spiritual teacher but also a master of the English language. His books are among the leading classics of sacred literature because of their great inspirational value. Profound philosophical insights blend in well with moving devotional passages. Like a beautiful multicolored garland of fragrant flowers, this book is a collection of extracts from the writings of Ramdas that are arranged under 101 chapter headings.
In simple and eloquent language, Ramdas writes directly and from the heart and his message of certain deliverance through the unswerving remembrance of God is meant for all serious seekers of all religions.
“…Love—pure and glorious love—the immortal divine love—makes us drink always sweetness and joy. Therefore, to open your hearts to the inflow of this intoxicating love and remain ever in the rapture of it is the supreme blessing and purpose of life. All things pass away—your petty ambitions and unregulated aspirations are things of the moment. Your pleasures and pains, your successes and failures… all pass away. The one thing that remains unaltered, permanent, and eternal is Divine Love…” – The Essential Swami Ramdas
