During his stay at Moscow, he gave his main lecture at the Moscow State University on 10 October 1977 on a subject chosen by the Uni versity itself, namely 'Swami Vivekananda: His Humanism'. The lecture was followed by a stimulating question-answer session. The Swami spoke in English without a Russian translation, as all the students, professors, and research scholars present could follow simple slow spoken English.
At the end of the lecture and discussion, a Russian professor, by name B. C. Kostyecenko, presented the Swami with his book in Russian on Vivekananda.
