Swami Vivekananda

Swami Vivekananda was the leading disciple of the 19th century saint Ramakrishna and the founder of the Ramakrishna Math. He is considered a key figure in the introduction of Indian philosophies of Vedanta and Yoga to the western world, mainly in America and Europe 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 CE.

"All differences in this world are of degree, and not of kind, because oneness is the secret of everything."

— Swami Vivekananda
