The Vedanta was an inseparable part of Swami Vivekanandas personality. He lived and breathed this philosophy while preaching it to India and the west. While Vivekananda's landmark address at the parliament of religions in Chicago in 1893 established him as modern Indias great spiritual leader, his popularity and appeal is attributed to his ability to integrate his human side with his profound spiritual side.In this beautifully written biography, Chaturvedi Badrinath liberates Vivekananda from the confines of the worship room and offers an unforgettable insight into the life of a man who was the very embodiment of the Vedanta that he preached.
