The Complete Works Of Swami Vivekananda is a compilation of the works of Swami Vivekananda.
Summary Of The Complete Works Of Swami Vivekananda (Set Of 8 Volume)
The Complete Works Of Swami Vivekananda (Set Of 8 Volume) comprises the complete works of Swami Vivekananda, compiled from his numerous lectures from around the world.
Through his writing, Swami Vivekananda sought to revive Hinduism amidst the disintegration of the modern world. He wanted to consolidate and strengthen the underlying principles of Hinduism, and immortalize its rich heritage. He believed only in the existence of truth and humanity, and binding all religions together with the common thread of love.
Within his Guru, Ramakrishna Paramahamsa, Swami Vivekananda found the embodiment of all that was written in ancient texts, despite the former not having read a single one of them. This filled him with a feverish desire to attain supreme knowledge.
In his work, he explored the the concept of Advaita (or non-dualism) as he learnt from his Guru, Ramakrishna Paramahamsa. He espoused the belief that all the religions of the world are true, and serving mankind was equal to serving God. He believed that a nation’s future was in the hands of its people. His writings provide foundational insight into Vedanta and Yoga—disciplines of Hinduism.
He observed that there are four basic types of humans: those whose lives revolve around activity, those who strongly desire fulfilment of some inner purpose, those who explore the functioning of their minds, and those with a logical bent of mind. For each of these types he defined a type of Yoga: Karma Yoga, Bhakti Yoga, Raja Yoga, and Jnana Yoga, respectively.
Swami Vivekananda’s writing is imbued with three vital elements: the Shastras, the Guru, and the Motherland. His ideas, teachings, and writings, have been entrenched globally, and are taught and practiced all over the world. More than a century after his death, he still continues to influence and inspire people, especially the youth of this country.
About Swami Vivekananda
Swami Vivekananda was an influential Indian figure who played a key role in reviving Hinduism in modern-day India and introducing it to the rest of the world.
Some of his books include Bhakti Yoga, Raja Yoga, Karma Yoga, The East And The West, Pearls Of Wisdom, Jnana Yoga, My India, The India Eternal, Practical Vedanta, and the poem Kali The Mother. He also wrote many poems and songs.
His writing was philosophical, lucid, and infused with humour. His writings adhered to his belief that language—written or spoken—must be simple and easy to understand.
Swami Vivekananda was born Narendranath Dutta on January 12, 1863. Narendra’s personality and thinking reflected his mother’s religious temperament and his father’s rationality. He was initially home-schooled and later attended the Metropolitan Institute of Ishwar Chandra Vidyasagar. In 1879, he passed the entrance examination from Presidency College, Calcutta (now Kolkata). He earned a Fine Arts degree in 1881, and a Bachelor of Arts degree in 1884. Swami Vivekananda was interested in a variety of subjects including philosophy, religion, social sciences, arts, and literature. He was the chief disciple of saint Ramakrishna of Dakshineshwar, and established the Ramakrishna Mission and the Ramakrishna Math. He played a vital role in introducing the Indian philosophies of Yoga and Vedanta to the world. He eventually became a wandering monk and toured the Indian subcontinent, exploring and understanding its conditions. In 1893, he represented India at The Parliament of World Religions in Chicago, and gave a rousing, memorable speech. He died on July 4, 1902, while he was meditating.

Salute to swami vivekananda!!!!This book is indeed one of the best books I have ever read .each page if you read quietly and enthusiastically then you get all your answers to all the questions . Updating the status on Facebook or whatsapp is indeed the total waste of your precious time . Watching movies or playing mind disturbing games on computer won't do any good . Instead one should read such wonderful books . I recommend this book specially to the youth of this country who are forgetting the spiritual path . I am also teenager and I see a lot of my friends and classmates doing total waste of time on mobile phones . When… (Expand)
