At the World's Parliament of Religions in Chicago in 1893, a young Hindu monk caused a sensation. At the utterance of his simple opening words-"Sisters and Brothers of America"- the audience broke into spontaneous applause for Swami Vivekananda. What followed was a stunning speech about the validity and unity of all religions. In just a little over a century, Vivekananda's message had spread throughout the world.
In this book for spiritual seekers of all faiths and backgrounds, and forl all who yearn for solutions to the ideological conflicts that threaten our world, Swami Adiswarananda presents a selection of Vivekananda's most profound and inspiring lectures, and an intimate glimpse of his life through newspaper reports from the time, personal reminiscences from disciples and other close to him, and impressions of his life and message from world leaders.
