Description

In the Complete Works of Sister Nivedita (in five volumes), comprising the illuminating lectures, writings, articles, books, and epistles etc, of the author, we find the author’s marvelous intellect, her lyrical powers of expression, the intensity with which she held her beliefs and convictions, her capacity to see the soul of things straightaway, and above all, her love for India that overflowed all bounds. Her deep study of Indian literature combined with her keen intellect, a large heart and a comprehensive mind, helped her to understand India as a whole. This publication by Advaita Ashrama, a publication house of Ramakrishna Math, Belur Math, India, stands as one of the best appraisal of India by a western mind.
