Regarding Vivekananda and the Ramakrishna Mission

    Posted on March 11, 2014

Acyutananda: In Calcutta we have a life member, Veni Sankara Sharma? You stayed at his house?
Prabhupada: Hm, yes.
Acyutananda: So he wrote a book called An Unknown Chapter of the Life of Swami Vivekananda. And in there he openly says that he smoked a hookah and ate meat.
Prabhupada: Yes, that is known to everyone.
Tamala Krsna: Was he praising that?
Acyutananda: It was.... You know...
Yasodanandana: In Hyderabad there is a cook who used to cook for the Ramakrishna Mission, and he said they used to cook any kind of meat.
Prabhupada: Yes.
Acyutananda: I said, "Did you ever cook human meat?" He said, "If they told me, I would have done that also." There was nothing beyond their diet. "Anything they told me to cook..."
