Sw. Vivekananda
Swami Vivekananda

Much has been written about Swami Vivekananda (Swamiji) this year, and many lectures about his life and work have been given around the world. Yet, there is a body of information about Swamiji that — while not “secret” — is not as widely known.

Br. Shankara reviews the Swami’s familiar biography, and adds to it some fascinating episodes and aspects of Vivekananda’s life. For example, many people have found that Swamiji is actively keeping his promise of continuing to work, after he left the body in 1902.

Note about the image: Swami Vivekananda on a picnic with devotees in January 1900. He stayed with the Mead sisters at their home in South Pasadena, California, for six weeks (December 1899-January 1900).
