Ramakrishna was an ecstatic presence of God. The book amply illustrates this in his bursts into song and dance praising the Divine Mother, Kali, the Lord, the path of devotion. He samadhic states of no pulse, no breath were pure demonstrations of Spirit. The book is long and there are plenty of incidents to plow through, but the wisdom, the simple parables, and ecstatic love are always present adding richness to whatever is going on. The miracle was how this man M could have recorded all of it. What a gift to the world.
I find Ramakrishna's seeing the presence of God in all things very analogous to how Jesus may have approached life.
