About the Author:

Swami Chetanananda is a monk of the Ramakrishna Order of India, an author, and a spiritual teacher with students all over the world. He is the minister-in-charge of the Vedanta Society of St. Louis. He has written and translated more than two dozen books about the spiritual life, and he has collaborated in his writing with Huston Smith and Christopher Isherwood. Swami Chetananada has been teaching and writing about Vedanta in the United States for more than three of his four decades as a monk. He came to the United States from Ramakrishna Order monasteries of the Himalayas and Calcutta. His books have been translated into more than a dozen languages.

From Library Journal:

In this celebration of Swami Vivekananda's life (1863-1902) and appearance over 100 years ago at the World Parliament of Religions, there are tributes by many Western followers, mixed with powerful excerpts from his lectures promoting unity in diversity. An opening biographical sketch by Christopher Isherwood is followed by the author's description of how the boy, Narendra Nath Datta, met his master, Ramakrishna (died 1886), who initiated him into Advaita (nondualistic) Vedanta. The pictorial (over 275 photographs) is accompanied by autobiographical anecdotes and accounts of Vivekananda's meetings with prominent Westerners such as Edward Everett Hale, William James, and Sarah Bernhardt. After founding the Ramakrishna Order in Calcutta (1897), Vivekananda returned for a final tour and established numerous Vedanta centers in the West. He tirelessly promoted all religions as but phases of one eternal religion. Recommended for academic and large public libraries.?Dara Eklund, Los Angeles P.L.
