Economic ill – Any Vedantic pill?

Swami Sunirmalananda
Swami Sunirmalananda

Swami Sunirmalananda has given some serious thoughts to the recent economic recession that had devastating effects in many parts of the world. Is there any vedantic angle to this plaguing ill? Can we at least prevent such maladies? As a student of Vivekananda literature, he delves deeply into the subject and has brought forth truth nuggets that when as an applied science may rejuvenate the entire world.

This blog carried another link to his essay on Sri Ramakrishna and Santa Claus recently.

  1. Pronam Maharaj,
    This week’s article on economic recession and explanation according to Swamiji’s theory was great. I absolutely loved it. I have been following your blog regularly and am intrigued by the vastness of topics you generally pick up. I would love to read more on similar lines.

    This article is once again a proof of Swami Vivekananda’s relevance to the Modern society. This is a must-read for the youth, not only of India but of the world. The world corporate giants who shape the destiny of the global economy would do well to go through this article to see for themselves the futility of pursuing a gross commercial economics as against the spiritual economics suggested by Swami Vivekananda.

    A needy article – fresh, gentle and persuasive -for the present world.

    I have been avidly reading your blog for some time now without posting any comments but the latest publication by Swami Sunirmalananda is really mind-blowing and has prompted me to submit my comment. Swamiji has really “brought forth truth nuggets” in his article which will provide great hope to many people around the world during these difficult times. The “10 commandments of Spiritual Economics of Swami Vivekananda” needs to be made available to as many people as possible. I’d also like to read more articles by Swami Sunirmalananda. Thanks also to Brother Hiru Mukherjee for supplying this wonderful article.

  4. Illumined Swamiji,
    I was fortunate enough to have been sent the link to your site by a spiritual friend. I’ve repeatedly read in the Ramayan of Tulsidasji of the intense joy and absolute satisfaction derived by great personalities like Hanumanji, Bharath, Jathayu and many others- by simply serving the Lord and His subjects. I firmly believe that there is no pay-cheque like the Lord’s. The true twice-born of the present age reflect similar sentiments in their service to humanity and creation in general. It must take greatly enlightened people to make such profound gems become so digestible- even I understood some! It stands to reason then, that more spiritually evolved one is, the lesser is one’s material ownership- in exchange for greater responsibility. I salute you for being an example of that- and may the gracious Lord favor us with many years of your potent yet palatable words of wisdom.

    Kindest regards.
