Speeches and Writings: Third Edition
Revised and Enlarged
The following pages are the result of an attempt on the part of the publishers to bring together in a collected form all that is valuable and of abiding interest in the speeches and writings of the late Swami Vivekananda. The Swami came to public notice almost suddenly at the great Parliament of Religions held at Chicago in the year 1895. The Indian public followed with great interest his brief but memorable career during the few short years that he Jived after that great gathering. He preached the religion of his master in America and in England and afterwards in the land of his birth.
