About the Book:

Never before have all the various facets of the teachings of Swami Ramdas (1884-1963) been brought together in one comprehensive volume.

Like a beautiful multicolored garland of fragrant flowers, Servant of God is a collection of extracts from the writings of Ramdas that are arranged under 101 chapter headings.

The very phrases of Ramdas form the chapter headings which range from “Adoration of the Lord’ to “Zoroaster Taught the Suzerainty of God”. The first word of a chapter heading indicates what it mainly contains. Thus the subject of LOVE predominates in the chapter “Love Breaks All Barriers”. The order of the chapter is determined by the alphabetical sequence of these first words. Therefore the CONTENTS list itself serves as a very useful subject index.

Ramdas was not only an extraordinary spiritual teacher but also a master of the English language. His books are among the leading classic of sacred literature because of their great inspirational value. Profound philosophical insights blend in well with moving devotional passages.

The chapter entitled “The Life of Swami Ramdas” by Susunaga Weeraperuma is a long and detailed account that is replete with fascinating anecdotes about this saint.
