Description
Swami Vivekananda (1863-1902) also called Narendranath Datta was a Hindu philosopher, born and died in Calcutta. He attempted to combine Indian spirituality with Western materialism, and became the main force behind the Vedanta movement in the West. The future Vivekananda first drew breath when the air above the sacred river not far from the house reverberating with the prayers, worship, and religious music of the of Hindu men and women. Before Vivekananda was born, his mother like many other pious Hindu mothers, had observed religious vows, fasted and prayed so that the might be blessed with a son who would do honour family. In June 1899 he leaves India for second visit to the West. He refurned to Belur Math in December 1900. The rest of his life was spent in India, inspiring and guiding people. He has dedicated his life to guiding others for pure and true spiritual path. His health deteriorated and Swami Vivekananda breathed his last on 4 July 1902 at the Belur Math, leaving behind an immortal legacy not just in the hearts of his contemporaries, but for all generations to come. This book has very vividly, comprehensively and yet very concisely dealt with the life and thoughts of Swami Vivekananda. His commendation of the citizens of Japan while his visit to that place and his exhortation to our countrymen to emulate their virtues is a special feature of this book.
