Swami Vivekananda once said, “I have a message to the West, as Buddha had a message to the East.” That message was Vedanta. Culled from his collected works, Vedanta - Voice of Freedom presents in a clear and concise form the tenets of a religion which has evolved over the course of five thousand years. This is a living Vedanta put forth by the extraordinary mind of Swami Vivekananda.
Compiled and edited by Swami Chetanananda of the Vedanta Society of St. Louis, this book brings us an introduction to Vedanta from Swami Vivekananda's very thoughts and speeches given in the West and abroad. If you have never read any of Swami Vivekananda's works or books on Vedanta, we highly recommend this collection. It provided an introduction to and overview of this seemingly complicated philosophical system in easily digestible essay. Each essay evokes Swamiji's characteristic eloquence and straightforward speaking style. He is indeed the Master Orator. This compilation of Swamiji's great works gives a detailed insight into Vedanta and helps us feel the peaceful benefits and quietude of the mind that Vedanta ushers forth.
