The Voice of Vivekananda is as vibrant as his radiant Form. The thoughts of this Prophet of modern spiritual renaissance are more relevant today than ever before. His electrifying message of the divinity of man, of peace and harmony emerging from the realized and realizable Truths of Vedanta, uniting mankind with the silken thread of shared faith, is no longer the luxury of a few blessed souls, but is a sheer necessity for the survival of humanity itself.Hence the need for this book. It presents, in a reader-friendly way, the core of Swamiji's thoughts, arranged to captivate and appeal to both the young and not so young. Anyone who is concerned with the achievements of complete well being for all will here orientations that make that goal achievable. We live in a world apparently torn by divisive tendencies of various forms: political, ideological encounters, social inequalities and rigidities, and above all, economic inequalities of an explosive potential. This selection is diligently made to reflect both these wings of Swamiji's thought: material progress and ethical, spiritual orientations. The range of areas covered is comprehensive and this compact volume addresses the ideals that Ramakrishna-Vivekananda tradition always stood for: a blending of work and worship, of service and spirituality.
