Each is Great in his own Place 1 & 2
Swami Atmajnanananda

In 1895, Swami Vivekananda conducted a series of classes in England which became the seminal book Karma Yoga. On Friday December 13, his topic was “Each is Great in his own Place.” He explained that the life of the sannyasin—the monk—and of the householder, differ, but that each allows one to manifest greatness: “Our duty is to encourage every one in his struggle to live up to his own highest ideal, and strive at the same time to make the ideal as near as possible to the truth.” Swami Atmajnanananda discusses this topic in this two-part lecture series, delivered on April 11 and May 15, 2010.
