The Monk as Man: The Unknown Life of Sw. Vivekananda
- 238 pages Indian paperback
- (retail only)
Most books about Swami Vivekananda focus on his teachings and powerful saintly personality. This book is written by one of Bengal's most popular authors. He focuses on the human side of Vivekananda, the human traits that remind us that the swami was still one of us, human.
Swami Vivekananda suffered from many ailments, and contracted numerous diseases. He talked about this as the body tax. He had numerous family problems to deal with
Through the book, we look into Vivekananda's relationship with his mother, his personal likes and dislikes, his comments about tea. None of this is really dramatic, but it still brings us closer to Vivekananda, the man and the saint.
