The Universal Symphony of Swami Vivekananda
- 264 pages, Indian hardback
Swami Vivekananda was a living example of this truth. In this book, Swami Ranganathananda explores the life and thought of Swami Vivekananda, especially as they were expressed in his vibrant synthesis of East and West and his international and humanitarian vision. Based on seven of his lectures, Swami Ranganathananda presents Swami Vivekananda as one who had no provincial limits to his sympathies, whose heart embraced the whole of humanity, and who had the power, intellectual as well as spiritual, to impress himself upon the thought and culture of the modern age.
Swami Ranganathananda was the 13th President of The Ramakrishna Math and Mission. He is the author of Message of the Brhadaranyaka Upanishad and The Message of Vivekachudamani among many other books. He is also the subject of the books: The Monk Without Frontiers: Reminiscences of Swami Ranganathananda and My Life Is My Work.
