Here are some glimpsis of the unique life of Sri Sarada Devi, the divine consort of Sri Ramakrishna Paramhansa, combining her human and divine roles. The life of Sri Sarada Devi, known to devotees also as the Holy Mothe or Sri Sri Ma, had been a mixture of the Mundane and the profoundly spiritual. She effortlesslymoved from the grossly external to the supremely internal levels of existence all through her life. She faced tremendous hardships with a serenity that is almost impossible to encounter elsewhere. Each incident of her life serves as a core for contemplating on the highest truths embedded in our ancient scriptures and paradoxically in our ordinary lives. The volume bring out all these facets of her experience from a special perspective.
