The Estudante Da Vedanta Collection is an invaluable collection of Books on Vedanta , compiled by a student of Vedanta from Sao Paulo, Brazil. This collection is a comprehensive collection of books and writings of Shri Ramakrishna Paramhansa, Swami Vivekananda and the 16 direct disciples of Ramkrishna Paramhansa - Swami Abhedananda, Swami Brahmananda , Swami Paramananda to name a few.

Swami Abhedananda (2 October 1866 – 8 September 1939), born Kaliprasad Chandra  was a direct disciple of the 19th century mystic Ramakrishna Paramahansa and the founder of Ramakrishna Vedanta Math. Swami Vivekananda sent him to the West to head the Vedanta Society, New York in 1897, and spread the message of Vedanta, a theme on which he authored several books through his life, and subsequently founded the Ramakrishna Vedanta Math, in Calcutta (now Kolkata) and Darjeeling.

Swami Brahmananda: Swami Brahmananda passed away on 10 April 1922. Swami Vivekananda had said Swami Brahmananda is a "treasure-house of spirituality". After establishing Belur Math monastery when Swami Vivekananda got Ramakrishna Math registered as a Trust, Swami Brahmananda became its President. He held this post till the end of his life. Swamiji gave over the responsibility of running the organization, to Swami Brahmananda, remembering that Sri Ramakrishna had once remarked that Rakhal had the capacity to rule a kingdom. 
His stress on contemplative life served to counterbalance the activities undertaken by the monks. During those difficult formative years he gave great stability to the Sangha. During his tenure as the Head, he also guided many earnest spiritual seekers by taking them under his protection, thus fulfilling Swami Vivekananda’s prophetic remark that Swami Brahmananda was veritably a spiritual dynamo.
