Famed 19-century author Romain Rolland writes about Swami Vivekananda:
His words are great music, phrases in the style of Beethoven, stirring rhythms like the march of Handel choruses. I cannot touch these sayings of his, scattered as they are through the pages of books at thirty years' distance, without receiving a thrill through my body like an electric shock. And what shocks, what transports must have been produced when in burning words they issued from the lips of a hero.
We all benefit from understanding karma better
I appreciate Vivekananda's in-depth approach to this complex topic. Karma is both clear at times, while also being a mystery as well. Building a bridge between the path of devotion to the welfare of others and how to create better karma is essential for all of us. I recommend this work to all earnest spiritual students.
Wonderful quality of writing, clear and concise language.
