“I am proud to belong to a religion which has taught the world both tolerance and universal acceptance. We believe not only in universal toleration, but we accept all religions as true” With these words the universal nature and catholicity of the great Sanatna Dharma were introduced on the world platform for the first time by Swami Vivekananda in Chicago at the World Parliament of Religions on 11 September 1893. With his tremendous impact in the Parliament and in lectures that followed, he removed all the superstitions and wrong preconceived notions that the world had about Hinduism and instilled a sense of deep respect and awe among the westerners about India. With this he was also successful in in awakening a sense of nationalism and pride about our ancient legacy in the Indians. His message of peace & brotherhood is very much needed for the present strife torn world and to commemorate the great occasion, September 11 is observed as Universal Brotherhood Day all over.
