It is an engaging, concise, and spiritually sensitive biography of Anandamayi Ma based on both thorough research and personal contact. It provides us with an insightful interpretation of the significance of Anandamayi Ma's personality and teaching. An edited rendering of Preofessor Lipski's writings on Anandamayi Ma begins the present volume, forming the first and second chapters. No work on Anandamayi Ma would, however, be complete without the inclusion of her actual words. To that end, the third and largest chapter of the present volume provides edited selections from Ma's discourses, recorded by Brahmacari Kamal Bhattacharjee, and later translated into English by Atmananda, both close devotees. This biography by Professor Lipski along with the actual words of Anandamayi Ma creates as complete a verbal representation as is possible of a woman who was herself beyond the level of duality and thus, ultimately, beyond all description.Printed Pages: 141.
