| Remembering a Great Swamiji|
139 Years Ago Today: Swami Vivekananda was born.
Swami Vivekananda (Biography at Ramakrishna Mission Website) is but the most famous of Hindu monks from India, and has had a profound influence on the practisioners of an ancient religion. A born leader, and a great philosopher, he explained the deep meanings of the Vedanta teachings to the commoners.
To mark the occasion, my mother has been invited to give a talk on Josephine McLeod, a follower/friend of Swami Vivekananda at the Ramakrishna mission, Bangalore, India. The lecture is open to the public.
