This book is a documented study of Swami Vivekananda's work in America through the person to whom he wrote the maximum number of letters: Mrs. Ole Bull. When Vivekananda left America in 1896, he put her in charge of his work there. Sara Bull's home in America, in the proximity of Harvard, became the first recognised school of comparative philosophy and inter-disciplinary dialogue. It was a partly residential school, affiliated with the University of Vermont, where Harvard professors could meet in-formally with students for a free exchange of ideas. There was always an Indian monk in residence and adequate place for Vedantic subjects. It was Mrs. Ole Bull who arranged Vivekananda's lectures to the graduate philosophy department at Harvard. It is a historical biography, revealing the cultural milieu and early history of the impact and exchange of Indian thought, particularly through Swami Vivekananda, on the intellectual society of America.
