Customer Reviews of They Lived with God
Review by Mataji Gauribrata Puri ?Devi: Saturday 05 May, 2012
"Saradeshwari Ashram Kolkatta, India"
Sri Ramakrishna, the prophet of Dakshineswar, was born in 1836. To him, love of God and realization of the Divine was found manifesting in his life partner Sri Sarada Devi, who he worshipped as the Holy Mother. While Gauri Ma was living with Sri Ramakrishna and Holy Mother at Dakshineswar; Sri Ramakrishna gave Gauri Ma the ocher robes of a Sannyasini (nun), and made arrangements for the accompanying rituals of sannyas. Sri Ramakrishna himself offered a bilva leaf into the homa fire. Sannyasini Gauri Mata Puri Devi was the only woman monastic disciple, that was given her formal vows during Sri Ramakrishna s life time. In 1895 commissioned by Sri Ramakrishna, Sannyasini Gauri Mata Puri Devi founded the oldest Womens Math (convent), Sri Saradeshwari Ashram, in Kolkatta, India. In 1897 Swami Vivekananda founded the Ramakrishna Mission and in 1901, the Ramakrishna Math. In 1954, Trustees of the Ramakrishna Math funded and started the second womens math (convent), Sarada Math. Sri Ramakrishna was a mighty spring, his disciples so many powerful streams carrying his universal message forward. Mothers Trust/Mothers Place, also known as Ramakrishna Sarada Ashram, Lakeshore Interfaith Institute, Ganges, MI., USA is an affiliated branch of Sri Saradeshwari Ashram where the nuns take their final vows of Sannyas from the oldest womens convent commissioned by Sri Ramakrishna. The Ramakrishna Monks and Ramakrishna/Sarada Nuns, work together as equals in their service in their mission. A Must to Read! for persons interested in Religion, Hinduism, Spirituality, Vedanta, Philosophy, Comparative Religions and Women Studies. For photos and archives view [...].

Review by Mataji Gauribrata: Saturday 28 April, 2012
Swami Chetananda refers to Sannyasini Gauri Mata Puri Devi. A Monastic Disciple of Sri Ramakrishna and founder of the oldest womens convent in the direct lineage of Sri Ramakrishna and Sri Sarada Devi as a \"lay disciple\". This is false. being that she is the founder of Sri Saradeshwari Ashram in Kolkatta in 1895 Mataji Gauribrata Puri (guest) wrote right now 0

Review by Glenn Davenport: Tuesday 28 December, 2010
While I like the book for telling something about the people who knew Sri Ramakrishna, there is at least one glaring error. Gauri Ma, identified as a "householder" disciple of Sri Ramakrishna, was in fact a Sannyasini. She was the only person, male or female (aside from Sri Sarada Devi), to receive her monastic vows directly from Sri Ramakrishna. Some seem to doubt this, but there is a whole womans monastic order, in Calcutta and elsewhere, begun by Gauri Ma at Sri Ramakrishna's behest, that show that it was indeed so. Why has this historical truth been ignored? When will it be corrected?

Mothers Trust "Mataji Gauribrata" (Ganges, MI., USA) - See all my reviews

This review is from: They Lived With God: Life Stories Of Some Devotees of Sri Ramakrishna (Hardcover)
Swami Chetananda, in his book, refers to Sannyasini Gauri Mata Puri Devi as a lay disciple, and I quote; "They Lived With God brings to life the biographies of Ramakrishna's lay disciples". Sannyasini Gauri Mata Puri is a monastic disciple of Sri Ramakrishna and the founder of the oldest womens convent in the direct lineage of Sri Ramakrishna, established in 1895, known as the Sri Saradeshwari Ashram in Kolkatta, India.
