You Will be a Paramahamsa

Today I read a great book on the Life and Reminisences of Swami Kalyanandaji Maharaj, a disciple of Swami Vivekananda who dedicated his Life for Unselfish, Loving Service.
Title: You Will be a Paramahamsa
Author: Swami Sarvagatananda
Publisher: Advaita Ashrama, Kolkata
ISBN: 81-7505-271-6
Price: Rs. 25/-
The Preface of the book reads thus:
Impressed by the spiritual mettle of a young monastic disciple named Swami Kalyananda, Swami Vivekananda once said to him, 'Kalyan, one day you will be a Paramahamsa.'
These inspiring reminiscences of Swami Kalyananda revel how he wonderfully exemplified Swamiji's great ideal of service by showing in his own life the immeasureable love, care, sympathy and self-sacrifice that are required of one who wants to truly serve others.
