In the list of biographies of Swami Vivekananda published by us, we have one which extensively narrates his life, and also one which presents him very briefly. The present book stands midway between these extremes. Herein the readers will find his life described in a short compass, without sacrificing the essential details. This is a masterly presentation of his life from the pen of a scholar of repute. A worthy book for all those who want to study Vivekananda in brief without loosing the crucial aspects of his life.
True religion is not talk, or doctrines, or theories, nor is it sectarianism. It is the relation between soul and God. Religion does not consist in erecting temples, or building churches, or attending public worship. It is not to be found in books, or in words, or in lectures, or in organizations. Religion consists in realization. We must realize God, feel God, see God, talk to God. That is religion.
