In happiness, in misery, in famine, in pain, in the grave, in heaven, or in hell who never gives me up is my friend... A man may have salvation through such friendship. That brings salvation if we can love like that.
--Swami Vivekananda

The Monk and a Merchant describes the unique relationship which developed between Swami Vivekananda and Francis H. Leggett, an eminent American businessman. Focusing as much upon Mr. Leggett as upon Swami Vivekananda, this outstanding story of a friendship between two men of widely different vocations is truly inspirational.
