A thorough scholar in Indian scriptures, Puranas and philosophical systems, Swami Vivekananda is credited with popularizing Indian thought system in the US and the UK. His speech at the Parliament of World’s Religions in Chicago in September 1893 was so impactful that many Western minds got obsessed with his teachings.
