About the Book
Lectures on "The Great Saviours of the World" were delivered by Swami Abhedananda before the Brooklyn Institute of arts and Sciences as also before the Vedanta Society of New York.
The principle aim and object of these illuminative lectures are to show that the fundamental teaching of the world have had the same spiritual keynote and that the stories connected with their divine lives and miraculous deeps are analogous.
Furthermore, it has been demonstrated in this volume that the universal religion of Vedanta embraces the teachings of all the Saviours of the World and it harmonizes all sectarian religions.
