PM Modi pays tribute to Swami Vivekananda on his birth anniversary


  • Swami Vivekananda was Hindu monk and philosopher. 
  • He was a chief disciple of 19th-century Indian mystic Ramakrishna.
  • Influenced by Western esotericism, he was a key figure in the introduction of the Indian darsanas (teachings, practices) of Vedanta and Yoga to the Western world, and is credited with raising interfaith awareness, bringing Hinduism to the status of a major world religion during the late 19th century.
