From the close of the era of the Buddhist Missions, until the day when, as a yellow-clad Sannyasin, the Swami Vivekananda stood on the platform of the Parliament of Religions in the Chicago Exhibition of 1893, Hinduism had not thought of herself as a missionary faith. Her professional teachers, the Brahmins, being citizens and householders, formed a part of Hindu society itself and as such were held to be debarred from crossing the seas. And her wandering Sadhus-who are, in the highest cases, as much above the born Brahmin in authority, as saint or incarnation may be above priest or scholar-had simply not thought of putting their freedom to such use.

Not did the Swami Vivekananda appear at the doors of Chicago with any credentials. He had been sent across the Pacific Ocean, as he might have wandered from one Indian village to another, by the eagerness and faith of a few disciples in Madras. And with American hospitality and frankness he was welcomed and accorded an opportunity of speaking. In his case, as in that of the Buddhist missionaries, the impelling force that drove him out to foreign lands was the great personality of One at whose feet he had sat and whose life he had shared for many years.


It is no superstition with you Nivedita, I am sure, you have the making in your of a world mover, and other will also come. Bold words and bolder deeds are what we want. Awake, awake, great one! The world is burning with misery. Can you Sleep?
-Swami Vivekananda
