Swami Vivekananda is considered the patriot-saint of India. As a powerful lecturer, he opened the way in the US for Eastern thought in general, and Vedanta philosophy, a branch of Hinduism.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
