Ramakrishna: A Documentary serves equally well as the perfect introduction to this remarkable saint or as a fresh and enhanced experience of his presence. This skillful assemblage of rare images of Ramakrishna, combined with a 1928 motion picture and a 1936 audio recording of some of his disciples, is surely as close as we will get to seeing him.
…Ramakrishna will serve as a cram-packed visual compilation of a great many priceless moments in one of the religious history’s important lives. . . . As the facts unfold, we see why Mahatma Gandhi said of Ramakrishna: “The story of Ramakrishna’s life is a story of religion in practice. His life enables us to see God face to face.”
This professional video also includes a solid record of Ramakrishna’s systematic (though brief) absorption into the practice of different religions to discover their intrinsic value, leading him to affirm the Vedic statement: “As many faiths, so many paths. Truth is one. Sages call it by many names.”
