Swami Vivekananda’s letters in CD form

January 12, 2014

On the auspicious occasion of the completion of Swami Vivekananda's 150th birth anniversary, an audio CD consisting of 24 of Swamiji's letters were published at the Ramakrishna Mission Institute of Culture on 12 January,  Swamiji's birthday.  The letters have been compiled by Mr Anup Roychowdhury. Mr Roychowdhury said because of their busy schedule nowadays, people, particularly the youth may not get the time to read Swamiji's works and the CD will hence be of great help to them. The CD will also contain the context of the letters along with the text.

Forever alive in letter and spirit

About his own letters Swami Vivekananda had once said: “I will tell you this that whoever reads these letters will imbibe my spirit.” 

Swamiji's letters mostly include those to his friends in the West and disciples, particularly Sister Nivedita, Joesephine Macleod, ET Sturdy, Professor Wright of Harvard University and Professor Max Muller. His letters to his brother monks and those to Sarala Devi Chaidhurani, editor of Bhatari and Alasinga Perumal are inspiring. The letters depict Swamiji's views on universal religion, his love for India and his man-making and character building educational views.

Swamiji’s latest biography

A book entitled Swami Vivekananda: Char Samaboyoshir Romonthon will be released by Vivekananda scholar and formerly Ramtanu Professor of Bengali literature Sankari Prasad Basu at his Howrah residence on 13 January. Four well known personalities, Upadhaya Bramhabandhab, Panchkari Bandopadhyay, Dr Chunilal Basu and Jaladhar Sen who saw Swamiji from close quarters and also wrote about him, their writings had come out in some well known Bengali magazines like Prabashini, Sandhya, Bharatbarsha. Arnab Nag has compiled and edited the write ups while Sutradhar will publish the book.
