There has been an unmatched master-disciple pair in India that is illustrated world over today. This pair is that of Ramakrishna Paramhansa and Swami Vivekananda.
If Swami Vivekananda is the crown of the temple of Indian spirituality, his master Ramakrishna Paramhansa is its foundation stone. Therefore, whenever Swami Vivekananda is remembered, memories of Ramakrishna Paramhansa naturally come alive. Their relationship is an epitome of the master-disciple tradition. Swami Vivekananda’s quest for truth culminated at the feet of Ramakrishna Paramhansa, and after that, he propagated the teachings of his master to the  worldwide.
Besides some inspiring incidents from the lives of the master-disciple duo, this book also narrates their ideas and mutual affection for each other. On reading this book, you will come to know how a master grooms his disciple through teaching, training, and testing. This book will provide you with an opportunity to witness how a master and disciple can symbolise the term ‘two bodies and one soul’.
