It has been my dream to work on the collections of Swami Vivekananda since I regularly attended the birth day celebrations on 12 January every year. That was during when I did my graduation and later as a university student. I participated in Elocution and other events organized by the alma mater. At first as a school boy and later as a college student, I took an active role both as a listener and a follower of Swami Vivekananda‘s speeches. I became an ardent lover of his books on Yoga and meditation though I don‘t practise them. I developed a serious interest first as a reader and of course a learner. His works belong to an entirely different genre and squarely come under Indian Spirituality and Culture. I was relatively experimental in learning about his works. All his works gained currency in the world. They aren‘t merely preaching but a sort of awakening moves any reader. That was how I came to read his works. From this, I have moved on where I left as a layman. Beginnings were rather difficult for me in terms of immense terminology and understanding. Times have changed considerably and each generation has to learn Swami Vivekananda‘s works for a better and peaceful living and co-existence. If peace is what Swami thought to bring about has radically transformed the entire world because there is essence, life and concept. All these represented his vision for a mankind to live in harmony free from ills and evils. He envisioned a glorious world with his ideals of Indian Culture. He carried them to the West and imbibed a spirit of Indian Vedanta — he gave life to them and made others live in them. A Vedantic life would usher in a life of values, spirit of brotherhood and revived a sense of culture and heritage. These values have immortalized Swami Vivekananda even today. Have studied two collections namely 1) Thoughts to Inspire 2) 25 Greatest Speeches of Vivekananda for a critical evaluation. Indeed, it is a proud privilege to work on his universal writings. If the message is strongly universal, his inspiration is equally rejuvenating.
