Religion, Spirituality and Social Action: New Agenda for Humanity

Swami Agnivesh (Author)
Synopsis This is a collection of important writings and speeches of Swami Agnivesh on three important themes: (i) religion, (ii) spirituality, and (iii) social action. Together, these thought-provoking write-ups constitute the agenda that Swamiji offers to the humanity for its well being and happiness. Swamiji is not a mere thinker or a monk preaching religious ideals. He is essentially a social activist who fights injustice and untruth, oppression and exploitation, poverty and hunger, dearth and disease as and when they appear around him. Small wonder, then, his write-ups carry the colour of his activism. They pulsate with hot and healthy blood. They have refreshing energy and vigour. And they are so very impressive that one is bound to sit up and ask after going through them: how should I make use of the agenda for the humanity that Swamiji has presented here? Indeed, ‘the two hundred odd pages of pen power’, as rightly said by Justice V.R. Krishna Iyer in his learned Forword, ‘reveals the planetary patriotism of a great human wonder’.
