The author: Vivekananda was published on January 12th Born in Calcutta in 1863. Even at an early age, the premature boy showed an innate tendency to meditate. At the age of 15 he experienced a spiritual ecstasy. His early encounter with Sri Ramakrishna became decisive for him, in whose N in Cassipore he experienced the highest realization of Vedanta and Yoga (Nirvikalpa Samadhi). After the death of Sri Ramakrishna, Vivekananda traveled all over India as a wandering monk. On May 31, 1893, he went to Chicago to participate in the Parliament of Religions as a representative of the Hindu religion. In the following three years he made extensive trips to the United States and several European countries. He died on July 4, 1902, only 39 years old, after meditating on the Ganges. Not to be underestimated enough is its spiritual significance for Neo-Hinduism, Mahatma Gandhi and Sri Aurobindo.
