The topic of our this article is Radhakamal Mukerjee's quotes and comments on Swami Vivekananda.

Mukerjee told—
The fruitful movement of the dialectic of the Indian spirit towards the stress of universality of the human person is embodied in the thought and vision of Swami Vivekananda, the beloved disciple of Ramakrishna, one of the greatest saints of modern India and a living embodiment of the universality and transcendence of Vedantic humanism. Vivekananda gave to modern India the conception of the destitute, suffering and sorrowing God (arta and daridra Narayana) in man conceived as essentially interpersonal and at the same time ultimately cosmic-transcendent.
