• Darshi Arachige deposited Kali’s Child – A Search for An Autobiographical Ramakrishna in the group Group logo of PhilosophyPhilosophy on Humanities Commons 3 years, 5 months ago

    This is a review of the book “Kali’s Child: The Mystical and the Erotic in the Life and Teachings of Ramakrishna, Jeffrey J. Kripal, University of Chicago Press, 1995” . “Kali’s child” fell well short of a proof that Sri Ramakrishna’s mystical experiences were actually “profoundly, provocatively, scandalously erotic”. To reconstruct the autobiographical Ramakrishna from the historical Ramakrishna may well be a task logically impossible.
