Books Specification

Language :   English

Swamiji attended the World Parliament of Religions at Chicago in 1893 as a true representative of his country and religion. Through his speeches at Chicago and his subsequent work in America and England he showed the universal relevance and significance of India's ancient philosophy and spiritual culture in solving many of the problems associated with modern living.


Shri Pranab Mukherjee, The President of India.

Based on the ideas propagated by Swami Vivekananda, this book presents a brief survey of various approaches to religion and offers different perspectives of religious diversity. Scholars and philosophers of many religious traditions examine the social and cultural issues that lie at the interstices of this religious diversity.

The volume throws light on several mega trends - Knowledge revolution, a new kind of humanism stressing on the rights of underprivileged people, equality of gender and protection against all forms of exploitation, injustice along with the awareness toward environmental concerns, as well as spiritual revolution, all characteristics of a new age. The contributors to this volume have devoted themselves to studying specific facets of this vast and intricate theme over many years of their respective professional careers. The interview with H.H. Dalai Lama, Maulana Wahid Uddin Khan, Karan Singh and Reverend Mpho Tutu forms the key feature of this book.

The volume will appeal to those interested in Philosophy, Religion, History, Culture and Asian Studies.
