This book is a wonderful narrative of the life experiences of the direct monastic disciples of Sri Ramakrishna, the Master. Whether it be the householder or an individual who had renounced the world, the Master touched each one of them with his divine grace and this is obvious when one reads this book and vicariously is engulfed in the joy that these disciples experienced with the Master. My heartfelt thank you to Swami Chetanananda for this beautiful book. The reader is certain to be transported to a mood of sure exalted bliss when reading this book.

Beautiful inspiring stories of grace and beauty.

Swami Chetanananda’s presentation of the householder disciples of Sri Ramakrishna is utterly profound. Every chapter, if not every page, brought tears and chills of inspiration and spiritual love and longing to this reader. The author has taken every opportunity to uncover and unlock the subtleties of inner transformation manifesting over a lifetime in these rare relationships between householder devotees and a teacher of unfathomable purity, power, renunciation, and love. Pairing events of a disciple’s daily life with the recorded accounts of their visits with Sri Ramakrishna, Swami Chetanananda has filled in the gaps of an epic and precious period of spiritual history whose significance is still dawning on contemporary minds around the planet

Sri Ramakrishna’s teaching and training of his householder disciples is clearly depicted in this book. Often, much is made of his separate training of monastics and householders, with the contemporary reader sometimes engaging in futile and deprecating projections of the lowliness of the householder station. Through these biographies, however, we see with what tenderness, insight, and patience Sri Ramakrishna taught his householder disciples. Revealed, too, is what Sri Ramakrishna meant by "hidden yogis among the householders."

Sri Ramakrishna’s householder disciples were of diverse backgrounds and temperaments: saintly, wicked, conventionally good, lovers of the personal God, lovers of the formless God, those austere by nature, those libertine by nature, social reformers, artists, professionals, laborers, mothers, fathers, destitute widows, abused wives, overworked husbands, misunderstood youngsters — all received from Him instruction suited personally to their own circumstances and spiritual emancipation. Before reading this book, I thought that the one criteria that had to be met for any of his disciples was that of sincerity, but there are a couple cases shown of how even the insincere, over time, became sincere — such was the power of Sri Ramakrishna’s love. Their transformation and struggles, while bearing the responsibilities of family and social life and the weight of past karmas and inherent tendencies, will swiftly transmit to the earnest reader the all-important qualities of faith, courage, perseverance, and forbearance.

At a time in our world when men and women struggle simply to procure food, when children are raised by strangers, television, equally-lost peers, and parents with no spiritual training, these stories stand as testament to the nobility and necessity of the dharmic householder path and the beauty, peace and bliss that accompanies spiritual effort and faith in God and Guru. True, these men and women had an incomparable teacher in Sri Ramakrishna, but as we read their stories, we naturally identify with them and thus imbibe their experiences. The earnest will find teachings and examples to follow, and will find blessedness too, which in turn benefits family and society.

The life of an illumined being, whether one calls him or her a saint, prophet, or incarnation of God, shines a spotlight, as Swami Vivekananda once said, on all the scriptures of mankind. The study of such beings enhances and brings inspiration into the spiritual life of any sincere and universally-minded aspirant, no matter what spiritual path he or she may follow. They Lived with God is a sure antidote to the spiritual dry spells that we all encounter from time to time.

This book offers a glimpse into the beautiful life and consciousness of the great spiritual Master, Sri Ramakrishna.
I had the opportunity to see Swami Chetananda in person and hear him speak, and was moved by the Light of Sri Ramakrishna in him! I feel he does an excellent job in conveying and containing that light. God bless him.

I don't know why a monk would give a 1 star to this book, it is a fascinating study of lives of people associated with Sri Ramakrishna. Highly recommended!
Akinozuru
Swami Chetanananda does the job in his usual way, perfectly! Immaculately researched and very well written, if you are a devotee or a curious person who wants to know how lives of ordinary people were transformed by Sri Ramakrishna's touch, this is the book!
Swami Chetananda, in his book, refers to Sannyasini Gauri Mata Puri Devi as a "lay disciple", and I quote; "They Lived With God brings to life the biographies of Ramakrishna's lay disciples". Sannyasini Gauri Mata Puri is a "monastic disciple of Sri Ramakrishna" and the founder of the oldest womens convent in the direct monastic lineage of Sri Ramakrishna and Sri Sarada Ma the Holy Mother, established in 1895 known as the Sri Saradeshwari Ashram in Kolkatta, India. To speak to the President, Mataji Bandana Puri direct monastic disciple of Sannyasini Gauri Mata Puri please phone: 011 91 332 555 3074 or visit or write: 26 Gauri Mata Sarani, Kolkatta, India 700004. Mataji Bandana Puri's books will be available soon of the direct monastic lineage of "nuns" since 1895 of Sri Ramakrishna and Sri Sarada Devi, the "Holy Twins."
Please read a review from: "Sannyasini Gauri Mata Puri Devi (Paperback) A Monastic Disciple of Sri Ramakrishna" by Swami Shivatatvananda of the Ramakrishna Order and "Saradeshwari in a Glance" by Mataji Bandana Puri, President of Saradeshwari Ashram. You will read a truth untold by Swami Chetananda who refers to Sannyasini Gauri Mata Puri Devi, A Monastic Disciple of Sri Ramakrishna as a prominent indian lay disciple.
Sri Ramakrishna, the prophet of Dakshineswar, was born in 1836. To him, love of God and realization of the Divine was found manifesting in his life partner Sri Sarada Devi, who he worshipped as the Holy Mother. While Gauri Ma was living with Sri Ramakrishna and Holy Mother at Dakshineswar, Sri Ramakrishna gave Gauri Ma the ocher robes of a Sannyasini (nun), and made arrangements for the accompanying rituals of sannyas. Sri Ramakrishna himself offered a bilva leaf into the homa fire. Sannyasini Gauri Mata Puri Devi was the woman monastic disciple, that was given her formal vows during Sri Ramakrishna's life time. In 1895 commissioned by Sri Ramakrishna, Sannyasini Gauri Mata Puri Devi founded the oldest Womens Math (convent), Sri Saradeshwari Ashram, in Kolkatta, India. In 1897 Swami Vivekananda founded the Ramakrishna Mission and in 1901, the Ramakrishna Math. In 1954, Trustees of the Ramakrishna Math funded and started the second womens math (convent), Sarada Math. Sri Ramakrishna was a mighty spring, his disciples so many powerful streams carrying his universal message forward. Mothers Trust/Mothers Place, also known as Ramakrishna Sarada Universal Temple, Lakeshore Interfaith Institute and Community in Ganges, MI., USA is an affiliated branch of Sri Saradeshwari Ashram where the nuns take their final vows of Sannyas from the "oldest" womens convent commissioned by Sri Ramakrishna. The Ramakrishna Monks and Ramakrishna/Sarada Nuns, work together as equals in their service in their mission. A Must to Read! for persons interested in Religion, Hinduism, Spirituality, Vedanta, Philosophy, Comparative Religions and Women Studies. For photos and archives view our website [...]
