Swami Vivekananda went out into the world to spread Ramakrishna Paramahamsa’s message. In 1893, he was invited to the World Parliament of Religions, in Chicago. As a representative of Hinduism he gave several speeches to great acclaim within the Parliament and the world at large. He is credited with playing a big part in bringing an understanding of Hinduism to the Western mindset.
Points to Ponder
All differences in this world are of degree, and not of kind, because oneness is the secret of everything.
Who makes us ignorant? We ourselves. We put our hands over our eyes and weep that it is dark.
The world is the great gymnasium where we come to make ourselves strong.
