In the Hindu religious tradition, to live as a Parivrajaka is to live the life of a wandering monk. As such, these monks are "without fixed abode, without ties, independent, and strangers wherever they go . (Romain Rolland)
An obscure period of Swami Vivekananda s life is the time he spent as a Parivrajaka. Traveling with only a water pot, staff and his two favorite books, the Bhagavad Gita and The Imitation of Christ, Swamiji wandered the length and breadth of India. Through exhaustive research, Dr. Chowdhury has compiled a day-by-day account of Swami Vivekananda s travels in India from July, 1890 through May, 1893.
Printed on high quality paper, the book includes over twenty pages of photographs and route maps.
