About the Author

Swami Ranganathananda (1908-2005), the 13th President of the world-renowned Ramakrishna Order, represents one of its most remarkable figures. Initiated by Swami Sivananda, a direct disciple of Sri Ramakrishna, Ranganathnanda joined the Order in 1926. Ever since, he remained a dynamic spiritual and cultural exponent of India's eternal values, contemporizing them with a range and originality unique in its pragmatism.

The illustrious Swami worked at many centres of the Order which include Rangoon, Karachi, Delhi, Kolkata and Hyderabad (the centre where he stayed for the longest period). All these centres saw phenomenal growth in a comprehensive manner upholding the Ramakrishna tradition of renunciation and service. The Institute of Culture in Kolkata and the Vivekananda Institute of Human Excellence at the Ramakrishna Math Hyderabad, are concrete examples of Ranganathananda's dynamic spirituality.

Swami Ranganathananda was, moreover, a spiritual and cultural ambassador of India's vast heritage to the West. He undertook extensive tours covering the USA, UK Holland, Germany, Russia and many other countries. He addressed distinguished gatherings of intellectuals, scientists, and academics as also students on the areas of oneness and unity of mankind and the need for a balanced and total human development. As a great synthesizer, he won great respect and recognition, including the First Indira Gandhi Award for National Integration (1986). No wonder that the celebrated Swami evoked the respect and love of initiated disciples, devotees and admirers from all over the world.
