The Complete Works of Swami Vivekananda/Volume 6/Epistles - Second Series/XCVIII Mrs. Bull
30th May, 1896.
DEAR MRS. BULL,
. . . Day before yesterday I had a fine visit with Prof. Max Müller. He is a
saintly man and looks like a young man in spite of his seventy years, and
his face is without a wrinkle. I wish I had half his love for India and
Vedanta. At the same time he is a friend of Yoga too and believes in it.
Only he has no patience with humbugs.
Above all, his reverence for Ramakrishna Paramahamsa is extreme, and he has
written an article on him for the Nineteenth Century. He asked me, "What are
you doing to make him known to the world?" Ramakrishna has charmed him for
years. Is it not good news? . . .
Things are going on here slowly but steadily. I am to begin from next Sunday
my public lectures.
Yours ever in grateful affection,
