Coming from Afar are the Voices of the Silence.
Rarely are they heard, save by the Mystics and the Sages.
And when one of these Voices becomes embodied as Sound audible to mortal hearing-blessed is the time and blessed are those who hear.
Formless. is the Spirit and subjective is the vision thereof; dense is the illusion that hangs as the cosmic veil before Reality!
How divine, therefore, must be the personality that makes objective the vision of the Spirit! How priceless the history of one who has lifted even a fringe of the Veil!
The illusion becomes transparent through the effulgence of such a spiritual personality. Verily, the Spirit Itself becomes revealed; and those who see are brought face to face with Reality!
To introduce the life of Swami Vivekananda is to introduce the subject of the spiritual life itself.
All of the intellectual struggle, all of the doubts, all of the burning faith, all of the unfolding process of the spiritual illumination were revealed in him.
As a man and as a Vedantist he manifested the Manliness which was Sanctity and the Sanctity which was Manliness; he manifested the Patriotism which came from the vision of the
Dharma; and he manifested the life of intense activity as well as of Supreme Realisation, as the fruit of the true Insight of Divine Wisdom.
His life is revealed throughout the glory of the Supra sensuous Life.
The publishers are well aware that this great life has been lived too recently for the public to gauge fully the import and the possibilities it represents; they know that many of the statements and interpretations concerning the Swami recorded in this work, rnay not meet with universal acceptance; but they are firmly convinced that time will substantiate their value.
It ‘matters not in what light the present generation, by reading this life, may regard the Swami, be it as a teacher, patriot, prophet, or saint; it matters not whether they accept his teachings and his ideas only partially or in their entirety; but all will have to admit that in his life there was made manifest a tremendous force for the moral and spiritual welfare and uplifting of humanity, irrespective of caste, creed, nationality or time, and that as such it commends itself for careful study and reflection.
Those who have produced this work are the Swami’s o ut-spoken followers; nay, more than that, they are his disciples and co-workers, representing as they do the Brotherhood of the Advaita Ashrama founded by the Swami himself.
They have made every endeavour to give a true and comprehensive revelation of their Master.
They fully realise that theirs is an enormous undertaking and responsibility.
They realise, also, how difficult it is to bring the man into the narrow compass of a biography.
This is true of every great life, but it is particularly true of Swami Vivekananda.
The limitations of biographical treatment and description have been constantly before them.
The second edition of the Life of Swami Vivekananda comes out after a long pause due tounavoidable circumstances. In this edition the volumes have come under a thorough revision and some inaccuracies which had crept in in the first edition have been corrected in the light of later investigations.
Much that was superfluous by way of extensive descriptions of Hindu religious and social ideals, with most of which the Indian reader is already conversant, has been cut short.
Only that much has been preserved which is necessary for a Western reader to understand the full significance of the life.
So toothe chapters deahng with the elucidation of religious and philosophical consciousness have undergone much abridgment.
In effecting these alterations, however, care has been taken to see that no fact of importance was omitted and that none of the numerous aspects of that marvellous character was neglected.
On the other hand new information has been added, which was not available at first.
