by Shelley Brown

This is the first major work about Swami Nitya-swarup-ananda (1899-1992)-the visionary monk of the Ramakrishna Order who created the UNESCO-acclaimed Ramakrishna Mission Institute of Culture in Calcutta and who spent a lifetime striving to bring the timeless wisdom of Vedanta into the mainstream of global thought and endeavor. His plans for a humane world civilization inspired some of the greatest public figures of our time. Centred in Truth captures the spiritual elegance of the man-his irresistible personality and his intellectual genius that drew the world's elite to his door. Beautifully written and richly illustrated, this two-volume work brings the Swami's life and work into focus from many points of view-through biography and memoir, writings and reminiscences-to create an unforgettable portrait of a contemporary sage. Powerhouse of a monk, a man of action with a global vision, great personal integrity, and a zest for life. This moving and inspiring biography will appeal to general readers.-LIBRARY JOURNAL Brown is a wonderful compiler and an astute cultural historian.-THE BOOK READER
