Narendra ocher robes at the age of 25 had been captured. Thereafter, he traveled throughout India on foot. In 1893, Chicago (USA), the World Council of Religions was getting. Swami Vivekananda came as the representative of India.

European-American people subjugated the Indians were very inferior view. There are plenty of people that tried to Swami Vivekananda religion may not have the time to speak in the Council. But an American professor found them a little time to try. Council learned that all were astonished to hear his views. In America he was again highly welcome. There was a large community of devotees.

In the United States and the people there of Indian philosophy provided wonderful light in the three years.

Vivekananda’s contribution and importance:

Thirty-nine years working on the brief life of Swami Vivekananda will guide the future generations for many centuries.Swami Vivekananda in Chicago at the age of thirty, the US Conference of World Religions represented Hinduism and earned universal recognition. Gurudev Rabindranath Tagore had once said, “If you want to know India, Read Vivekananda. Among them you will find everything positive, nothing negative.”

Romain Rolland had said about him, “It is impossible to imagine any of them being second, wherever they were, first stayed the same. Everyone of them was the referent of their leader. They were representative of God and to have a dominion over all their typical. Himachal Pradesh, once an unknown traveler to see them stopped and said with exclamatory -‘shiva ! “as if it were a deity that person may have his name written on their foreheads.”

They not only saint, a great patriot, orator, thinker, writer and philanthropist were. He had returned from the US called upon the countrymen “New India went cobbler shop,  hot from the market, leaving lying bushes, forests, mountains, from the mountains.” And the people responded to the call of Swamiji. He went out with pride. Gandhiji received public support in their fight for freedom, it was the result of the call of Vivekananda. Thus the Indian freedom struggle also became a major source of inspiration. He believed that religion and philosophy of India divine land is sacred. This great saints and sages were born, this is the land of renunciation and sacrifice, and here-here-primitive dimension Since only the highest ideal of life and salvation to man the door is open. His statement – “Arise, awake, awake awakening myself to others. Do your male-born to succeed and not until then should not wait until the target.”

Vivekananda sacerdotalism, religious Amberon, and stereotypes were strongly against religious fundamentalism. He put faith in man’s service center had spiritual contemplation. His Hinduism Odd, was not pneumatic. They rebel statement that the country’s three hundred thirty million hungry, poor and malnourished people like gods and should be installed in the temple sculptures of deities from temples be dropped.

He sacerdotalism, Brahmanism, religion, and the fun of stereotypes Udayi and almost aggressive in the war against such anomalies. His vision of the best thinkers of Hinduism to the world of ideas squeeze is still the subject of envy. Swamiji had indicated that his country abroad and the need for the material prosperity, but we must not beggar. We have a lot more than what we can give to the east and west Besakhta her needs.

Swami Vivekananda for his country’s heritage was not arrogance or hyperbole. Indian civilization and culture of a theologian monk neutral, objective criticism and valuation. Later that stamped the history of the twentieth century.
