Not till you mentioned it. Here's a review from Amazon--it sounds to me like a fictionalized meeting between Vivekananda and Yogananda. Vivekananda died in 1902. In 1902 Yogananda was 9 years old.

From the review:

"The book- 'Two Great Masters' is wonderful research work of Amrit Gupta about Swami Vivekananda and Paramahansa Yogananda. Through the romantic and inspiring dialogue between three young research scholars (fiction) the writer goes very deeply in every aspect of these two great spiritual masters- their mission, their thoughts and ideals in details. "

The review goes on to say:

"Writer Amrit Gupta is himself follower of the teachings of great yogi Paramahansa Yogananda and know well the spiritual path."

It sounds like an interesting book, but it's a description of the philosophies of Vivekananda and Yogananda rather than a description of any real-life meeting between them.

All the reviews on Amazon are 5 star, but the book is unavailable, at least through Amazon. The book was published in India. I found two copies available from the ABE Books website (www.abebooks.com)--both are from a book dealer in Delhi. When you go to the ABE website, key in Gupta as author and Two Great Masters as title, and you'll find it.
