About The Book
,p> In this neat volume the learned Swami has depicted the national life of India with the outlook and precision of a true historian. His able marshalling of facts in their correct perspective throws a flood of light on the various aspects of Indian life, culture and civilization. The volume is an exposition of India— ancient, mediaeval and modern. It covers the Indian life not only in its practical ways. It is an all-round account of India and her people. The foreigners or Indians, who will feel an interest to know about India proper, will be highly helped by this work of supreme importance.

Preface

Swami Abhedananda's name is familiar to all who are in touch with the new religious movement in India and in lands beyond the seas where he spent the best portion of his life in preaching and teaching the philosophy and religion of Vedanta. In America, he was widely known as a great scholar, a popular preacher, an accredited teacher of the Vedanta and an author of international reputation. But he was, in fact, the most formidable champion of Indian culture and civilization and with a true heart and unabated zeal, alone he fought for Her in the face of vehement opposition, bitter criticism, racial prejudice and sectarian jealousy. His writings, public speeches, class lectures and private interviews did much towards dispelling many false ideas about India which were then prevalent in America.

His fame as a scholar, a philosopher and an eloquent speaker spread so rapidly that many a time he was invited to speak before the Universities, Societies, Clubs, Churches, Synagogues and Spiritualists' Associations; everywhere the people listened to him with great delight and his lectures were received with much respect and appreciation. In 1905, at the invitation of the Director of the Brooklyn Institute of Arts and Sciences, the Swami delivered a series of lectures before it on philosophy, religion, society, government, education and culture of India. In these discourses, he challenged the socalled truthful Christian missionaries and their worthy adherents, the Indian converts, and contradicted their scathing and sweeping remarks on the religious and social conditions of the Hindus and silenced the detractors by his clear and forceful replies. The Americans, for the first time, came to know the real conditions of India from a native of the soil who keenly felt the wrongs and sufferings of his own people and many had to revise their general impression on the 'ubjects.

These lectures together with one on the Woman's Place in Hindu Religion were first published by the New York Vedanta Society under the title of India and Her People in 1906. The present work is a reprint of the original American edition. Many political institutions, which have been commented upon in this vt,:ume, are in the melting pot as British India is passing through a period of transition. The author's criticisms on men, measures and institutions now seem out of place, but still they have not been deleted, however, as they have a historic interest in as much as the remarks of the Swami indicate contemporary opinions of an Indian patriot. They have also been retained to show that the viewpoint of the author, like that of many other patriotic Indians, was correct as our rulers have since fallen in with these views by bringing about reforms in the system of administration to which the Swami referred. We hope and trust that the reading public will welcome this volume as it contains many valuable information on India which every son of the soil should know.
