Publisher's Summary

Indian mystic Swami Vivekananda addresses the 1893 World Parliament of Religions in Chicago, offering an inspiring message of a shared spirituality and the harmony of world religions. He is considered a key figure in the introduction of Hindu philosophies of Vedanta and Yoga in Europe and America, and is also credited with raising interfaith awareness, bringing Hinduism to the status of a major world religion during the end of the 19th century.

Amazing if authentic

I've studied Vedanta for decades and did not know that there were any recordings of Swami Vivekananda. Assuming this is authentic -- and it certainly sounds as if it is -- this is an amazing historic recording that will be fascinating for anyone interested in harmonizing the world's religions.

Tolerance

The recording is crackled but the perhaps no Hindu philosopher can ever summarise what the Hindu way of thinking is about as he does in this lecture.
