Swami Vivekananda was one of the great religious minds of the 19th century. His appearance in Congress of World Religion in America was a momentous event in the history of religion. Here, he forever changed the Western view of Vedanta Hindu philosophy.
What was hitherto considered an assortment of superstitions was revealed by Vivekananda's eloquence to be a sophisticated religious and metaphysical system which won the respect of Western thinkers. What is the substance of Vivekananda's interpretation of Vedanta? And how relevant is it to 20th Century man?
In this revised volume the Goutam Sen pieces together the representative protions of the Swami's philosophy and ties them up with a running commentary of his own.
