Puffin Lives: Swami Vivekananda

 
9780143331865: Puffin Lives: Swami Vivekananda

A genius, a visionary, a writer, a dreamer, a teacher and an inspiration for generations of Indians this was Swami Vivekananda. Born into a family of lawyers, Narendranath Dutta was an exceptionally intelligent child, a natural leader among his playmates, who impressed his teachers with his scholarship. The spirituality of his mentor Shri Ramakrishna and his own study of philosophy and logic influenced Narendranath to join the monastic order.

Vivekananda was the spokesperson for India at the Parliament of Religions in Chicago where the magic of his words held his audience in thrall. He also instilled among the Indian youth self-confidence and the hope of regeneration.

Devika Rangachari s account of the life and times of Swami Vivekananda is both inspiring and absorbing.
