A Concordance to Swami Vivekananda Volume 1: (A – H)
A Concordance to Swami Vivekananda is not simply a collection of quotations culled from the vastly Vivekananda corpus. Rather it is a useful guide that enables scholars and general readers to ascertain what Vivekananda said on different subjects and where those statements can be found. We often need this sort of ready reference for locating a quotation or for studying a particular issue in depth. We hope this Concordance will save those, who are eager to know Vivekananda’s thoughts on various issues, much time and labour.
A distinctive feature of this Concordance is its emphasis on protecting Vivekananda’s ideas, rather than his words. The entries were chosen so that the reader can form a fairly clear picture of what Vivekananda wanted to convey.
All three volumes are primarily based on The Complete Works of Swami Vivekananda, with additional material being drawn from the Reminiscences of Swami Vivekananda by His Eastern and Western Admirers, The Master As I Saw Him by Sister Nivedita, Letters of Sister Nivedita edited by Prof. S. N. Basu, and the six volumes of Swami Vivekananda in the West: New Discoveries by Marie Louise Burke.
