Life of Vivekananda and the Universal Gospel
- 328 pages, Indian hardback
This is one of the early biographies of Swami Vivekananda, written by famed writer of the 19th Century Roman Rolland. Translated from the French.
The author writes:
Vivekananda's 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 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 the hero.
