11 September in History


Swami Vivekananda - Chicago Address


Date of Issue : 11 September 1993


11 September was the Day on which Swami Vivekananda gave the world-famous speech in 1893 at Chicago in the World Parliament of Religions. Swami Vivekananda conquered the world on this day with his spirituality in practice and that too at a time when India was not even independent.


It was for the first time that the message of universal Brotherhood and its proper understanding was given to the western world. We all know that when Swami Vivekananda addressed the audience as ‘Sisters and Brothers of America’ it had an electrifying effect on them. Because it was not merely a form of address but behind those words was the great spiritual strength of India, which has always proclaimed and practiced the universal brotherhood in her long history of more than 5000 years.
