Vivekananda wanted to join, but was disappointed to learn that no one without credentials from a bona fide organisation would be accepted as a delegate. Parliament President John Henry Barrows said, "India, the Mother of religions was represented by Swami Vivekananda, the Orange-monk who exercised the most wonderful influence over his auditors".
The New York Critique wrote, "He is an orator by divine right, and his strong, intelligent face in its picturesque setting of yellow and orange was hardly less interesting than those earnest words, and the rich, rhythmical utterance he gave them". After hearing him we feel how foolish it is to send missionaries to this learned nation".
Vivekananda's speeches at the Parliament had the common theme of universality, emphasising religious tolerance. After the Parliament of Religions, he toured many parts of the US as a guest. His popularity opened up new views for expanding on "life and religion to thousands".
Vivekananda spent nearly two years lecturing in the eastern and central United States, primarily in Chicago , Detroit , Boston , and New York. He founded the Vedanta Society of New York in Beginning in June , Vivekananda gave private lectures to a dozen of his disciples at Thousand Island Park in New York for two months.
During his first visit to the West he travelled to the UK twice, in and , lecturing successfully there. In Germany he met Paul Deussen , another Indologist. His success led to a change in mission, namely the establishment of Vedanta centres in the West. This society still is filled with foreign nationals and is also located in Los Angeles.
He called it "Peace retreat", or, Shanti Asrama. There is also a Vedanta Press in Hollywood which publishes books about Vedanta and English translations of Hindu scriptures and texts. From the West, Vivekananda revived his work in India. He regularly corresponded with his followers and brother monks, [note 5] offering advice and financial support. His letters from this period reflect his campaign of social service,  and were strongly worded.
Also, let them have oral lessons on geography and such other subjects. No good will come of sitting idle and having princely dishes, and saying "Ramakrishna, O Lord! Sevier and J. In Colombo he gave his first public speech in the East. From there on, his journey to Calcutta was triumphant. Common people and rajas gave him an enthusiastic reception.
During his train travels, people often sat on the rails to force the train to stop so they could hear him. While in the West, Vivekananda spoke about India's great spiritual heritage; in India, he repeatedly addressed social issues: These lectures, published as Lectures from Colombo to Almora , demonstrate his nationalistic fervour and spiritual ideology.
Its ideals are based on Karma Yoga ,   and its governing body consists of the trustees of the Ramakrishna Math which conducts religious work. Two journals were founded: Prabuddha Bharata in English and Udbhodan in Bengali. Vivekananda earlier inspired Jamsetji Tata to set up a research and educational institution when they travelled together from Yokohama to Chicago on Vivekananda's first visit to the West in Tata now asked him to head his Research Institute of Science ; Vivekananda declined the offer, citing a conflict with his "spiritual interests".
He consolidated the work of the math and trained disciples for several months. Vivekananda composed " Khandana Bhava—Bandhana ", a prayer song dedicated to Ramakrishna, in Despite declining health, Vivekananda left for the West for a second time in June  accompanied by Sister Nivedita and Swami Turiyananda.
Following a brief stay in England, he went to the United States. The French philosopher Jules Bois was his host for most of this period, until he returned to Calcutta on 9 December After a brief visit to the Advaita Ashrama in Mayavati Vivekananda settled at Belur Math, where he continued co-ordinating the works of Ramakrishna Mission, the math and the work in England and the US.
He had many visitors, including royalty and politicians. Although Vivekananda was unable to attend the Congress of Religions in in Japan due to deteriorating health, he made pilgrimages to Bodhgaya and Varanasi.
On 4 July the day of his death  Vivekananda awoke early, went to the monastery at Belur Math and meditated for three hours. He taught Shukla-Yajur-Veda , Sanskrit grammar and the philosophy of yoga to pupils,   later discussing with colleagues a planned Vedic college in the Ramakrishna Math. Vivekananda went to his room, asking not to be disturbed;  he died at 9: Vivekananda fulfilled his prophecy that he would not live forty years.
Vivekananda propagated that the essence of Hinduism was best expressed in Adi Shankara 's Advaita Vedanta philosophy. Each soul is potentially divine. The goal is to manifest this Divinity within by controlling nature, external and internal.
Do this either by work, or worship, or mental discipline, or philosophy—by one, or more, or all of these—and be free. This is the whole of religion. Doctrines, or dogmas, or rituals, or books, or temples, or forms, are but secondary details. Nationalism was a prominent theme in Vivekananda's thought.
He believed that a country's future depends on its people, and his teachings focused on human development. Vivekananda linked morality with control of the mind, seeing truth, purity and unselfishness as traits which strengthened it. Vivekananda supported brahmacharya ,  believing it the source of his physical and mental stamina and eloquence. Let the brain, muscles, nerves, every part of your body, be full of that idea, and just leave every other idea alone.
This is the way to success, that is the way great spiritual giants are produced". Vivekananda was one of the main representatives of Neo-Vedanta , a modern interpretation of selected aspects of Hinduism in line with western esoteric traditions , especially Transcendentalism , New Thought and Theosophy.
In the background of emerging nationalism in British-ruled India, Vivekananda crystallised the nationalistic ideal. In the words of social reformer Charles Freer Andrews , "The Swami's intrepid patriotism gave a new colour to the national movement throughout India. More than any other single individual of that period Vivekananda had made his contribution to the new awakening of India".
Sri Aurobindo regarded Vivekananda as the one who awakened India spiritually. The first governor-general of independent India, Chakravarti Rajagopalachari , said "Vivekananda saved Hinduism, saved India". In him everything is positive and nothing negative". I cannot touch these sayings of his, scattered as they are through the pages of books, at thirty years' distance, without receiving a thrill through my body like an electric shock.
And what shocks, what transports, must have been produced when in burning words they issued from the lips of the hero! Jamsetji Tata was inspired by Vivekananda to establish the Indian Institute of Science , one of India's best-known research universities. The th birth anniversary of Swami Vivekananda was celebrated in India and abroad.
The Ministry of Youth Affairs and Sports in India officially observed as the occasion in a declaration. Swami Vivekananda as a tribute for his th birth anniversary. Vivekananda was featured on stamps of India , , , and , Sri Lanka and and Serbia Although Vivekananda was a powerful orator and writer in English and Bengali,  he was not a thorough scholar,  and most of his published works were compiled from lectures given around the world which were "mainly delivered [ According to Banhatti, "[a] singer, a painter, a wonderful master of language and a poet, Vivekananda was a complete artist",  composing many songs and poems, including his favourite, [ citation needed ] " Kali the Mother ".
Vivekananda blended humour with his teachings, and his language was lucid. His Bengali writings testify to his belief that words spoken or written should clarify ideas, rather than demonstrating the speaker or writer's knowledge.
Bartaman Bharat meaning "Present Day India"  is an erudite Bengali language essay written by him, which was first published in the March issue of Udbodhan, the only Bengali language magazine of Ramakrishna Math and Ramakrishna Mission. The essay was reprinted as a book in and later compiled into the fourth volume of The Complete Works of Swami Vivekananda.

It is impossible to conceive of the one without the other. The Divine Mother and Brahman are one. Hence it is sometimes referred to as Kevala-Advaita or unqualified monism. It may also be called abstract monism in so far as Brahman, the Ultimate Reality, is, according to it, devoid of all qualities and distinctions, nirguna and nirvisesa [ But as distinguished from the traditional Advaita of Sankara, it is a synthetic Vedanta which reconciles Dvaita or dualism and Advaita or non-dualism and also other theories of reality.
In this sense it may also be called concrete monism in so far as it holds that Brahman is both qualified, saguna, and qualityless, nirguna Chatterjee, Retrieved 11 April A short biography".
