The Penguin Swami Vivekananda Reader
The Penguin Swami Vivekananda Reader
Description
From the Jacket:

On 11 September 1893, Swami Vivekananda (1863 - 1902) made his first public appearance on the world stage as a last-minute, uninvited participant at the Parliament of Religions in Chicago. There he proclaimed his message of tolerance and universal acceptance in the name of millions and millions of Hindu people of all classes and sects'. Speaking against sectarianism and bigotry, this young speaker in flaming robes sounded the death-knell of all fanaticism.

In the last nine years of his brief life, Swami Vivekananda taught, lectured, wrote and traveled tirelessly. After his death, his message spread all over India and in many parts of the world through the various activities, efforts and services of the Ramakrishna Math and Mission, the monastic order and service institution that he had founded in the name of his guru.

The Penguin Swami Vivekananda Reader is the first independently edited selection of Vivekananda's works. It includes speeches, essays, letters, poems, conversations and excerpts on subjects that have contemporary relevance: the condition of India, karma, spirituality, reincarnation, and the realization of the Absolute. Swami Vivekananda's writings do not merely inspire, but propel action. With a detailed biography and a scholarly introduction, the Reader provides a rare insight into one of the India's greatest minds.

Testimonials
I received the statue today, and it is beautiful! Worth the wait! Thank you so much, blessings, Kimberly.
Kimberly, USA
I received the Green Tara Thangka described below right on schedule. Thank you a million times for that. My teacher loved it and was extremely moved by it. Although I have seen a lot of Green Tara thangkas, and have looked at other Green Tara Thangkas you offer and found them all to be wonderful, the one I purchased is by far the most beautiful I have ever seen -- or at least it is the one that most speaks to me.
John, USA
Your website store is a really great place to find the most wonderful books and artifacts from beautiful India. I have been traveling to India over the last 4 years and spend 3 months there each time staying with two Bengali families that I have adopted and they have taken me in with love and generosity. I love India. Thanks for doing the business that you do. I am an artist and, well, I got through I think the first 6 pages of the book store on your site and ordered almost 500 dollars in books... I'm in trouble so I don't go there too often.. haha.. Hari Om and Hare Krishna and Jai.. Thanks a lot for doing what you do.. Great !
