Review

His words are great music, phrases in the style of Beethoven, stirring rhythms like the march of Handel choruses. I cannot touch these sayings of his, scattered as they are through the pages of books at thirty years' distance, without receiving a thrill through my body like an electric shock. And what shocks, what transports must have been produced when in burning words they issued from the lips of a hero. --Romain Rolland, famed 19th-century author --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

From the Author

Swami Vivekananda is regarded in India as a patriot and saint. He came to the United States and spoke at the World's Parliament of Religion in Chicago.

After the Parliament, the Swami traveled throughout the United States and England lecturing and giving the Western world his best teachings on Vedanta, teachings that seemed customized for the particular needs of the western mind. His first book on the yoga of meditation was assembled and published as Raja Yoga. Later came out a collection of his talks on the intellectually demanding approach Jnana Yoga, and finally, talks on the yoga approaches that suit most people Karma and Bhakti Yoga. A series of private talks to his most serious students at Thousand Islands Park in New York was later published as Inspired Talks.

After four years, Vivekananda finally returned to India for a hero's welcome. Here he was able to put many of his ideas in practice such as service to the poor, education, hospitals, and relief in times of natural disaster. A major day came in 1899 when the permanent headquarters of his brother monks, called the Ramakrishna Order of India, was consecrated.

If you want everything Swamiji has written, well, this is it. Now, the question is - why would you want an 8 volume set that includes not just his books, but transcriptions of his talks and an endless collection of letters? Well, I'm reading through this right now and I'll tell you that when he wrote letters, for example, he showed a personal side you didn't get elsewhere. It's like reading a one man play. As for the transcriptions of talks, maybe not always the best, but you're not going to get these words from his own pen. If you follow Vivekananda this is the only way to go. Though, make sure you're really into him before buying this as it'll be a doorstop you won't need otherwise.
