Introduction

Swami Vivekananda, the sage of Modern India, guides humanity in attaining the divine, and as well gives ideas for a great India. His works are in ramakrishnavivekananda.info, in the order they were collected or in a chronological order. His works run into a few thousand pages. A reader will have a hard time to read everything on a specific topic addressed by him. If they are classified topic wise, the readers will get a fuller understanding of what he says. He can read all the lectures on a topic that interests him most, and then can move to another.

His lectures and writings can be broadly classified into Self Help, Yoga, History, Comparative Religion, and many more. In fact, some lectures cover many topics and they have to be tagged with many words. As time, patience, and energy permit, I will try to classify them into major topics. However, being a full-time student, and having to prepare for some tough exams, I'm afraid I may not be able to devote much time to this effort, and it may take years for me to classify all of them. I wish the devotee who kept Swami Vivekananda's works online has the time and energy to classify and tag them and even to write abstracts of every article. I sincerely thank the devotee who kept Sri Ramakrishna's and Swami Vivekananda's works online.

I don't like the CW site. I will find a way to recreate it. A better way.

Brother!

The Ramakrishna Mission have published many books which cover specific topics of Vivekananda's works. Letters of Swami Vivekananda, Lectures from Colombo to Almora.. the list is very large. They have classified and re-classified, published them under different names. One who's interested to put them online in the way you suggested need not take the pain of classifying them again... just we need to select the right book, and find a way to digitise it.

I would like to suggest one book for you "Living at the Source" it covers the teachings of vivekananda on spirituality. I thought you will be interested, hence this suggestion.
