Description:

Swami Vivekananda was an Indian Hindu monk.  He is credited with the revival of Hinduism in India. His speeches at the World’s Parliament of Religions in Chicago, held in September 1893, made him famous as an ‘orator by divine right’ and as a ‘Messenger of Indian wisdom to the Western world’. After the Parliament, Swamiji spent nearly three and a half years spreading Vedanta as lived and taught by Sri Ramakrishna, mostly in the eastern parts of USA and also in London.

The celebration of the 150th Anniversary of his birth, is free and open to the public.

Cosponsored by the Brueggeman Center of Dialogue with the World Hindu Council of Cincinnati Chapter and the HIndu Society of Greater Cincinnati.
