He is remembered as to be a major force in the revival of Hinduism in modern India. He is widely known for his inspiring speech beginning with \"Sisters and Brothers of America” through which he introduced Hinduism at the Parliament of the World\'s Religions at Chicago in 1893. From his childhood, he showed inclination towards spirituality and God realization. While searching for a man who could directly demonstrate the reality of God, he came to Ramakrishna and became his disciple. As a guru Ramakrishna taught him Advaita Vedanta and that all religions are true, and service to man was the most effective worship of God. After the death of his Guru, he became a wandering monk touring the Indian subcontinent and getting a first hand account of India's condition.
