A provocative look at the purpose of life through a mixture of religion, science and personal experience! The Universe Within Us is a mixture of science, religion, and personal experience that offers a new, more truthful understanding of our place and purpose in the universe, and to the inevitable conclusion that every human being possess a spiritual nature. Offering insight into every thinking persons look at life, the author argues that the answers to the purpose of life have long been the domain of priests and clergy, and, more recently, scientists. The religious answers often leave the intellect out and defy what the rational mind can accept. The scientific answers satisfy the intellect at the expense of the heart and soul. Drawing on all resources available: from the sciences, from the world's sacred scriptures, and from personal observations and experiences, Harper offers a unique map of the universe, and an explanation of life's purpose that is truly satisfying.

"Sri Ramakrishna was one of the greatest of India's spiritual adepts of recent times, actively embodying India's profound tradition of plurality. By assimilating the sadhanas, customs and practices of different faiths into his own personal practice, he presented a powerful example of respect for other traditions, even while maintaining a deep fidelity to his own. His transparently pure and well-documented life remains a guide and inspiration to millions on their spiritual path. I am sure many readers will be grateful to Swami Chetanananda for his English translation of Swami Saradananda's authoritative biography of Sri Ramakrishna from the original Bengali." - His Holiness the Dalai Lama "Detailed eyewitness accounts of spiritual geniuses -- whose impact on history far surpasses that of kings and potentates -- are second only to sacred scriptures in the place they occupy in the library of humanity. Now, at last, we have a splendid translation of the source biography from which all previous accounts of Sri Ramakrishna have drawn. Swami Chetanananda's long-awaited translation of Sri Ramakrishna and His Divine Play is an epic event in the unfolding saga of world spirituality." - Huston Smith, author of The World's Religions and Why Religion Matters "That someone should live so fully, burn with divine love so ardently, and teach so profoundly is very rare indeed, but it is all the more unusual to have a detailed contemporary account of such a life.. . . This extraordinary literary work communicates a real sense of Ramakrishna, his life and times." - Francis X.

Visions of Hell... Over a period of thirty days, God gave Mary K. Baxter visions of hell and commissioned her to tell people still alive on earth to reject sin and evil, and to choose life in Christ. Here is an account of the place and beings of hell contrasted with the glories of heaven.
