'Globalization' was the theme of the Annual special issue of Vedanta Kesari for the year 1999. Globalization is not simply about opening up the economy. It is taking place at various levels—it is integrating economies; it is changing the face of families; it is universalizing notions of women’s equality, environment, education; and it is changing the role of governments. It is about restructuring of society and the way we live. It has its downside: it is uneven, fragmented and is still dominated by the West. At another level, it has contributed to the rise of fundamentalism, as people reacted, often violently and irrationally, to what they perceived as a threat to their traditions from globalization. Includes articles by Swami Ranganathananda, Swami Gautamananda, C.Subramanian, Dr.Karan Singh, Sri Dayamata, Sri K.Dhammananda, Valson Thampu, Vamadeva Shastri, Azgar Ali Engineer, Acharya Mahaprajna, P.Parameswaran, C.T.Kurien, Mel Gurtov and other eminent people.

There are moments when the spirit is mute and powerless to give utterance to its interior yearning. It feels the need of a vibrant word to rouse it from its numbness and voice its voiceless aspiration. Hence attempts to provide, in one form or another, daily thoughts for the day's round are coincident with the rising of the religious consciousness. The ancient Forest-Books or Upanishads of the Vedlc period were but the accumulated effort of great sages to help those who surrounded them in their woodland hermitage, to meet the daily problem with triumphant heart. The mediaeval breviaries and manuals of devotion were written or compiled to the same end. The present volume is another contribution to this daily sacrament of prayer and holy thought. The idea of preparing it is not of recent conception. As far back as 1812 Swami Parama-nanda wrote me from Switzerland "Other day I was thinking a little of the next book (from your letters). Can't we call it A Book of Daily Thoughts and Prayers' ? What do you think of it ?" I had written to him that the idea had come to me to gather from his later letters and certain notes of his teaching material for a companion volume to the "Path of Devotion," made up from earlier letters. The prayers were caught with the same stealthy silent pencil at the moment of their utterance. They sound in consequence the more living note of spoken supplication. The quotations from the Scriptures are from the Swami's translations. Coming from such intimate sources, the words which follow possess special helpfulness in the intimate inward strivings of each day. They have been classified and arranged in consecutive and cumulative sequence. The thought is carried forwardfrom day to day, so that at the end of a month a new and defined impression will be made on the character. Each day brings its salient thought to be held through the waking hours in continuous mindfulness a brief lesson amplifies this and imbeds it more deeply in the consciousness a prayer feeds and strengthens the natural upward-reaching devotional aspirations of the heart. A few lines from the Swami's sacred and illumined poems are given as a daily exercise in memorizing. Memorizing is one of the most productive of spiritual practices. It provides a rich inner library to which one can turn in the moment of emptiness or distress. A single line called up in memory will sometimes turn the thought into an entirely fresh and wholesome channel. Thus on each page will be found food for all the faculties of the aspiring spirit. The Swami's words lend themselves with peculiar aptitude to a work of this nature. His sentences have the focused, shining quality of a finely-cut gem which requires no embellishment of ornate setting. They stir the higher, holier impulses of the soul and impel to consecrated living. They carry forward by their inherent vitality and strength. The book calls for no other introduction than itself. With its tender counsel and ringing appeal it will find its way, by the force of its spiritual power, into the heart and sanctuary of every seeker whose hand it reaches. DEVAMATA.

Swami Ramakrishnananda or Shashi Maharaj was a direct disciple of Sri Ramakrishna. Having spent more than a decade in the Baranagore Math, the first monastery of Ramakrishna Order, Shashi Maharaj came to Madras in 1897 at the instance of Swami Vivekananda. Enduring many hardships and overcoming numerous obstacles, he founded the Ramakrishna Math at Mylapore in Madras. His unequalled devotion to Sri Ramakrishna, pure life, saintly personality, and love and concern for others left an indelible impression on all those who came in touch with him. This book contains the available reminiscences of the monks and devotees who came in touch with him. Besides reminiscences, the book has all the letters Swami Vivekananda wrote to Shashi Maharaj, as also several appendices. Enriched with numerous pictures of Shashi Maharaj and the places and people associated with him.
