Book Description Penguin Books India, 2007. Softcover. Book Condition: New. 15 x 23 cm. The centrepiece of The Analyst and the Mystic is the absorbing story of the nineteenth-century Bengali mystic and Hindu saint Sri Ramakrishna. Using Ramakrishna?s life as a case study, Sudhir Kakar discusses in depth three interacting factors that he feels may be essential in the making of an ecstatic mystic: particular life historical experiences, the presence of a specific artistic or creative gift, and a facilitating cultural environment. Kakar goes beyond the traditional psychoanalytic interpretation of Ramakrishna?s mystical visions and practices. Going beyond the traditional psychoanalytic interpretation of Ramakrishna?s mystical visions and practices, Kakar clarifies their contribution to the psychic transformation of a mystic and offers fresh insight into the relation between sexuality and ecstatic mysticism. Through a comparison of the healing techniques of the mystical guru and those of the analyst, Kakar highlights the difference in their healing objectives and reveals the positive psychological aspects of the religious experience. Printed Pages: 112. Bookseller Inventory # 22052
