Excerpt from Swami Vivekananda and His Guru: With Letters From Prominent Americans on the Alleged Progress of Vedantism in the United States His progress through Ceylon to Southern India, through Southern India to Madras, and thence to Calcutta and Almora, was marked by all those Signs of veneration, reverence and devoted love which Indian people are wont to Show to those whom they look upon as Divine Messengers. This fervid enthusiasm was awakened on account of the Swami's supposed triumphant success in America and Europe. Had he not, at the Chicago Parliament of Religions, the grandest arena in the world, demonstrated the superiority of Hinduism over Christianity? Which the Swami declares, with all its boasted civilization, is a collection of little bits from the Indian mind - the very patchy imitation. This did not commend itself to the Calcutta Indian Nation. Carriage pulling is a prank that Mr. Surendra Nath Banerjea has possibly taught our boys, and they might well reserve it for him and others such as he. The young gentlemen are recommended rather to Show respect to their parents and elders - an advice Supposed to be needed. Feb.

In this 5 part lecture series Gwilym Beckerlegge discusses the life and legacy of Swami Vivekananda (1863-1902), the Hindu teacher who was arguably the first ‘global guru’. Vivekananda has been influential in shaping, among other things, Hindu notions of social activism, and what has come to be known as Modern Yoga, which is now practised beyond India. Gwilym covers the influence of Vivekananda’s own guru, the widely revered Sri Ramakrishna, Vivekananda’s fascinating journey from India to the United States and Europe at the turn of the 20th century, and the institutions Vivekananda started in Ramakrishna’s name. Vivekananda has been a highly influential but contentious figure in the history of recent Hindu tradition. These lectures will explore aspects of Vivekananda’s legacy with particular reference to the Ramakrishna Math and Mission, the movement Vivekananda founded in his guru’s name, and the Vivekananda Kendra, also inspired by Vivekananda, which came into existence in 1972. The Kendra, however, promotes in Vivekananda’s name an ideology strongly influenced by Hindu nationalism. Through an examination of these two movements, the lecture will illustrate the diffuse and durable nature of Vivekananda’s influence, and in the process explain why Vivekananda has been judged by some to have been a contradictory and controversial figure. Session 1 – Introducing Vivekananda and his guru Ramakrishna Session 2 – Vivekananda in the USA and London Session 3 – Establishing the Ramakrishna Math and Mission in India: Vivekananda and the spiritual discipline of service Session 4 – Continuity, discontinuity, and innovation in Vivekananda’s ideas Session 5 – Vivekananda and his Hindu nationalist admirers hindu philosophy hindu spiritual leaders daily life of a monk meditation practices vivekananda books complete works teacher life and philosophy of swami vivekananda in hindi 4 yogas hindusim life of yogi saint raja yoga

In this third installment of his comprehensive history of "India's religion" and reappraisal of Hindu identity, Professor Jyotirmaya Sharma offers an engaging portrait of Swami Vivekananda and his relationship with his guru, the legendary Ramakrishna. Sharma's work focuses on Vivekananda's reinterpretation and formulation of diverse Indian spiritual and mystical traditions and practices as "Hinduism" and how it served to create, distort, and justify a national self-image. The author examines questions of caste and the primacy of the West in Vivekananda's vision, as well as the systematic marginalization of alternate religions and heterodox beliefs. In doing so, Professor Sharma provides readers with an incisive entryway into nineteenth- and twentieth-century Indian history and the rise of Hindutva, the Hindu nationalist movement. Sharma's illuminating narrative is an excellent reexamination of one of India's most controversial religious figures and a fascinating study of the symbiosis of Indian history, religion, politics, and national identity. It is an essential story for anyone interested in the evolution of one of the world's great religions and its role in shaping contemporary India.

You Don T Simply Read A Man Like Vivekananda. In Reading Him, You Meet Him. And If You Don T Meet Him And Feel Him Contemporaneously, You Can Understand Little Of The Meaning Of What He Is Saying. In The Course Of A Short Life Of Thirty-Nine Years, Swami Vivekananda Came To Be Regarded As The Patriot Saint Of Modern India. Despite All That Has Been Written About His Life And His Epoch-Making Address At The Parliament Of Religions In Chicago, 1893, Swami Vivekananda Remains A Paradox: Much Is Known About Him, But Very Little Is Understood About The Man And His Relevance To Our Own Troubled Times. In Swami Vivekananda: The Living Vedanta, Chaturvedi Badrinath Looks Behind The Iconic Façade, Seeking To Liberate Vivekananda From The Confines Of The Worship Room. He Examines The Various Facets Of A Man Who Was As Much At Ease With Philosophical Discourse As He Was With Cooking; Whose Childlike Love For Ice Cream Went Hand In Hand With His Stature As A Prophet. The Author Also Throws Light On The Various Relationships That Shaped Swamiji S Philosophy Of Vedanta And Formed The Core Of His Teaching With His Spiritual Guru Sri Ramakrishna Paramahamsa, His Mother Bhubaneswari Devi, And His Many Followers In The West, Mostly Women, Who Became Central To His Life And Work. Well Researched And Brimming With A Wealth Of Detail, Swami Vivekananda: The Living Vedanta Offers An Unforgettable Insight Into The Life And Times Of This Renaissance Figure A One Who Was The Very Embodiment Of The Vedanta That He Preached.
