Below is the list of some of short stories and parables narrated by Sri Ramakrishna Paramahamsa




The video is about Sri Ramakrishna Paramhamsha a great
Saint and a great narrator of Parables. Sri Ramakirhna used parables to give spiritual insights and understanding, much like Gautam Buddha and Jesus Christ did. As stated in the video, parables illustrates religious and spiritual teachings in a simple way. The parables can give a good impact on the mind and easy to remember.

It could be hard to grasp that the great teacher, who transformed so many lives and minds, was uneducated. The parables he used came from his high spiritual state of mind rater than read and learned or gathered information. Most of His parables comes from Indian village life and Indian Spiritual understanding. The Westerners sometimes find it difficult visualizing these parables. Aldous Huxley, while writing a foreword to "Gospel Of Sri Ramakrishna", a great book having the qualities written about Sri SaiSatCharitra, wrote that the feelings and experience are entirely Indian. However, i would like to say they are entirely human and spiritual.

Gospel of Sri RamaKrishna contains many parables good and simple enough for parents, teachers and Children.

The video clip is from the DVD called 'The Parables of Sri RamaKrishna' available at www.vedantastl.org. I will be the one buying this DVD online from that source, surely i should not be missing it.
