Description

 

Preface to the Fourth Edition

 

In this edition, three more inspiring reminiscences viz. those of Kate Sanborn, K. S. Ghosh, and Frank Rhodehamel have been added. The source from which they have been collected has been mentioned at the end of each article. This addition has further enhanced the value and usefulness of the book.

 

Preface to the Third Edition

 

There has been an encouraging and persistent demand recently from the student of the Ramakrishna-Vivekananda Literature for a fresh edition of this book, which had been long out of print. We have taken this opportunity to include in the present edition some more 'Reminiscences' of Sister Christine, published a couple of years back in Prabuddha Bharata, but not contained in the previous editions of the book.

An 'Appendix' is added at the end of the book. Strictly speaking, though they do not constitute 'Reminiscences', Miss Josephine MacLeod's letters to her niece, Alberta Sturges, reveal the force of the impact of Swami Vivekananda on Josephine's life and bring to light some hitherto unknown facets of his personality and facts about his activities. These were compiled by Professor Shoutir Kishore Chatterjee, of the University of Calcutta, from the original excerpts made available to us by the Ramakrishna Vedanta Centre of England, and published in Prabuddha Bharata earlier.

With the addition of these fresh materials, we earnestly hope that the book will be warmly received by the admirers, followers, and students of Swamiji.

 

Preface to the Second Edition

 

In this edition the book has undergone a careful revision, and four more articles, viz. those from Sister Devamata, Maud Stumm, Mrs. S. K. Blodgett, and Swami Sadashivananda have been added.

 

Preface to the First Edition

 

Most of these reminiscences appeared in periodicals from time to time. They are reproduced with due permission and thanks. The memories of Sister Christine are copyrighted by Shri Boshishwar Sen of Almora. In the absence of a most comprehensive term for the contributors, we have styled them as "His Eastern and Western Admirers", though some of them are disciples, some friends, and some others admirers. The last writer is rather prejudiced. His articles, however, deserved inclusion as depicting a picture not generally known.' The articles are printed almost as they appeared earlier. In Sundararama Iyer's second account, a few paragraphs summarizing Swamiji's Madras speeches have been omitted as these would have been superfluous.

A few more articles have been treated thus for similar reasons and the omitted portions have been marked with three dots.

Although these reminiscences are attractive, informative, and instructive, we must tell the readers that the publisher does not necessarily subscribe to all the opinions expressed in them. For instance, B. G. Tilak's belief that Swamiji agreed with him that the Gita does not speak of monasticism and Reeves Calkins's insinuation that in his talks Swamiji reproduced verbatim some of his set speeches are palpably wrong, and no student of Swamiji's life and works can be misled. Such errors, however, are not many. At some places we have added footnotes to rectify biographical inaccuracies.

We hope that the book will be received as a timely publication coming as it does on the eve of Swamiji's birthday centenary celebrations.

Testimonials

The best and fastest service worldwide - I am in Australia and I put in a big order of books (14 items) on a Wednesday; it was sent on Friday and arrived at my doorstep early on Monday morning - amazing! All very securely packed in a very strong cardboard box. I have bought several times from Exotic India and the service is always exceptionally good. THANK YOU and NAMASTE!

I just wanted to say that this is I think my 3rd (big) order from you, and the last two times I received immaculate service, the books arrived well and it has been a very pleasant experience. Just wanted to say thanks for your efficient service.

I wanted to let you know how happy we are with our framed pieces of Shree Durga and Shree Kali. Thank you and thank your framers for us. By the way, this month we offered a Puja and Yagna to the Ardhanarishwara murti we purchased from you last November. The Brahmin priest, Shree Vivek Godbol, who was visiting LA preformed the rites. He really loved our murti and thought it very paka. I am so happy to have found your site , it is very paka and trustworthy. Plus such great packing and quick shipping. Thanks for your service Vipin, it is a pleasure.
