Foreword

To commemorate the 150th Birth Anniversary of Swami Vivekananda the Asiatic Society has decided to organise Lectures, Seminars, Publications related to Swamiji throughout the year. On the eve of his birthday, two lectures were arranged in the Society on January 11, 2012. The present volume contains reprints of three publications by the Society.

The first one titled Swami Vivekananda and the Indian Youth was first published in 1985 on the happy occasion of installation of a portrait of Swami Vivekananda in the Society on his birthday 12th January in 1985. The volume contains excerpts of his own writings and also writings on Vivekananda by eminent personalities.

The second one is the reprints of the proceedings of a national seminar on the life and thoughts of Swami Vivekananda, organised by the Asiatic Society, in collaboration with the Ramakrishna Mission Institute of Culture, Calcutta, to commemorate the centenary of Swamiji’s famous address delivered in September 1893 before the World’s Parliament of Religions, Chicago. This was first published in the Journal of the Asiatic Society, volume XXXV, number 4, 1993.

The third one is the reprints of Indira Gandhi Memorial Lecture, 1998 titled Swami Vivekananda’s Neo-Vedanta by R. K. Dasgupta. This was first published in 1999 by the Society.

I hope that the volume would help in propagating the philosophy of lofty Humanism preached by Swami Vivekananda.
