Swami Vivekananda, a wandering mystic and an eloquent philosopher, was a spiritual ambassador for the West. He also stressed the importance of scientific inquiry while awakening India’s masses. These aspects of his life are well documented through his letters, speeches, writings and brothers. His disciples also wrote over 100 books. Their lives were enriched by their interactions with him. And, more than a century later, his followers, who had never heard or seen the magnetic personality of the revered teacher, have also been well documented. Sankar’s composite biography is a combination of meticulous research and facts from hundreds of sources. It focuses on Swami Vivekananda’s personal life and attempts to answer the simple question: What was Swami like as a man.SKU: PRK0143101192
