Please note:

The Sri Ramakrishna Kathamrita in Bengali is available in two different formats:

        1. PDF
        2. HTML


PDF version: This has been completed barring correction of typos. You will need to have a pdf reader in your computer. If you are using IE 7 or 8, there might be some characters from the pdf file that do not load properly in the browser on first attempt. Refreshing will allow all the characters to load properly. This is not a problem with IE 6.


HTML version: This is in unicode and still under construction and there might be several broken links. Several factors are worth mentioning here;

(a) If you are using Vista or Windows7, you need not do anything  and can proceed directly.

(b) If you are not using Vista or Windows7, you need to go through these steps.

(c) Microsoft's default Bengali font "Vrinda" is usually unreadably small. Additionally, "Vrinda" lacks the "khandita ta" which appears as a box. The files have been created using  "Solaiman Lipi". It is preferable "Solaiman Lipi" be installed in your system. It is available here.

(d) You can use any other unicode compliant Bengali font, but then you will also need to install the font in you computer and change the default "Vrinda" to the one of your choice to ensure the Kathamrita pages are displayed in the font of your choice.
