The first birth centenary of Sri Ramakrishna was marked by a Parliament of Religious held in Calcutta in March 1937.The Parliament was not only the most important feature of the Centenary Celebration but also the first of its king in this country. Among those who presided over its various sessions lasting for eight days was Swami Abhedananda. One of Sri Ramakrishna's direct disciples, Rabindranath Tagore, Sir Francis Younghusband and Dr Brojendranath Seal. There was hardly a country which was not represented. Many savants personally came to pay their homage to this humble man of nineteenth century and those who could not come sent their tributes.

The Religious of the World reproduces in full the proceeding of this Parliament. The reader will find in it some invaluable discussions on the philosophical, moral, religious, sociological and spiritual questions of the world today by some best minds of the East and the West.
