Book Description
About The Book:

'After so much tapasya I have understood this as the highest truth: God is present in every being. There is no other God besides that. He who serves all beings serves God indeed.'

A journey through the life of Swami Vivekananda is a study of the Indian civilization, its ethos and value system. Not only did his message of tolerance based on true knowledge, make him an exemplary spokesperson of the country but his life's mission of crating an order of monks who dedicated their lives for others, made him a prophet and a leader. His teaching continue to be relevant even today, especially in the light of the prevailing intolerance and fanaticism in the nation and the increasing turmoil in the world.
