Description

The great Indian monk Vivekananda had an overall mission for the whole world: To unite humanity under a universal religion, the fundamentals of which would be provided by Advaita, which will include all existing religions and will be scientific.

But a short life did not let him do so. In the aftermath of the First World War, thinkers like Romain Rolland were attracted to him because of his ideas. Rolland therefore presented the theme and its various aspects separately in the second part of his biography of Vivekananda to underline its importance.

A Second World War has meanwhile happened, with more disastrous results; and the Millennium Three is witnessing the worst kind of horrors perpetrated by essentially religion-based terrorism-which raises the relevance of his thinking once again. We may find his thesis useful in the present difficult times.
