Review By Bob Gregoire

Swami Vivekananda In The West

This collection gives an excellent account of Swamiji's time in the West starting from immediately prior to the Parliament of Religions. Readers come to understand his difficult travel schedule, how he was treated by his admirers, how he was treated by those who were threatened by his presence and what the different news outlets were saying about him. If you'd like to get to know Swami Vivekananda more personally - publicly and privately, this is a great way to do so!!

Review By Sukhendu Roy Chowdhury

Understanding Swami ji

I had bought these 6 volumes about 20 years back but just completed reading all the volumes. In these books swamiji comes out in real power and best of his heroic qualities. My life would have been futile if I had not read these books at my age of 64.

I recommend these books to all admirers of Swamiji and enrich their lives.
