Amazing if authentic

I've studied Vedanta for decades and did not know that there were any recordings of Swami Vivekananda. Assuming this is authentic -- and it certainly sounds as if it is -- this is an amazing historic recording that will be fascinating for anyone interested in harmonizing the world's religions.

The recording is crackled but the perhaps no Hindu philosopher can ever summarise what the Hindu way of thinking is about as he does in this lecture.
