Swami Vivekananda (Bengali: [ʃami bibekanɔndo]  12 January 1863 –
4 July 1902), born Narendranath Datta (Bengali: [nɔrendronat dɔto]),
was an Indian Hindu monk. He was a chief disciple of the 19th-century
Indian mystic Ramakrishna.[4][5] Influenced by Western
esotericism,[6][7][8] he was a key figure in the introduction of the
Indian darsanas (teachings, practices) of Vedanta and Yoga to the
Western world,[9][10][11] and is credited with raising interfaith
awareness, bringing Hinduism to the status of a major world religion
during the late 19th century.[12] He was a major force in the
contemporary Hindu reform movements in India, and contributed to the
concept of nationalism in colonial India.[13] Vivekananda founded the
Ramakrishna Math and the Ramakrishna Mission.[10] He is perhaps best
known for his speech which began with the words "Sisters and brothers
of America ...,"[14] in which he introduced Hinduism at the Parliament
of the World's Religions in Chicago in 1893.

Born into an aristocratic Bengali Kayastha family of Calcutta,
Vivekananda was inclined towards spirituality. He was influenced by
his guru, Ramakrishna, from whom he learnt that all living beings were
an embodiment of the divine self; therefore, service to God could be
rendered by service to humankind. After Ramakrishna's death,
Vivekananda toured the Indian subcontinent extensively and acquired
first-hand knowledge of the conditions prevailing in British India. He
later travelled to the United States, representing India at the 1893
Parliament of the World's Religions. Vivekananda conducted hundreds of
public and private lectures and classes, disseminating tenets of Hindu
philosophy in the United States, England and Europe. In India,
Vivekananda is regarded as a patriotic saint, and his birthday is
celebrated as National Youth Day.
