Ellen, as Sarah Ellen Waldo was known by Swami Vivekananda became his follower after meeting him in New York on December 30, 1894. Swami Vivekananda initiated her into Brahmacharya with the name Sister Haridasi. A dedicated and intelligent woman in whom Swami Vivekananda had great faith, she was the transcriber of the Inspired Talks of Swami Vivekananda, as well as the editor of most of his talks, including Raja Yoga, a seminal work that has become a textbook for the students of Yoga Sutras of Patanjali. Apart from these works, she has contributed numerous articles on Vedanta on the lines of Vivekananda. She was the first Western woman requested by Swami Vivekananda to teach Vedanta in America.

This book Sarah Ellen Waldo’s life and her contributions is a valuable addition to the existing literature dealing with the history of the Vedanta movement in the West.
