- 231 pages, Indian hardback
In the wake of Swami Vivekananda, India had seen the emergence of great spiritual personalities such as Mahatma Gandhi, Sri Aurobindo, Ramana Maharshi, and others. These figures were the bulwark against the dangerous ideology of materialism and sensuality which, it is needless to say, has gripped not only India, but the rest of the world.
Professor Chakrborty examines the core issues facing India today in the light of the values and teachings of Swami Vivekananda. The book is a passionate call to return to those values.
