The nation is observing the 158th birth anniversary of Swami Vivekananda, one of the greatest spiritual leaders of India.

Swami Vivekananda had introduced Indian philosophies of Vedanta and yoga to the western world.

Swami Vivekananda became popular in the western world after his famous speech at the World’s Parliament of Religions in Chicago in 1893. He was also the chief disciple of the 19th-century Indian mystic Ramakrishna and founder of the Ramakrishna Math and the Ramakrishna Mission.

He was considered a major force in the revival of Hinduism in India and bringing it to the status of major world religion in the late 19th century.
