So begins Swami Vivekananda‘s speeches on September 11, 1893 at The World Parliament of Religions, Chicago.
These speeches are just as inspiring as Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr.’s speech in Washington, DC. The similarities are staggering – both were men of the cloth, both appealed to our commonsense and both wanted us to be liberated in some shape or form.
Now you can hear Swami Vivekananda’s speeches; Part 1 [7.16mb] & Part 2 [4.78 mb]. The file sizes are large and depending on how fast your connection is, you may stall more than once as you listen through it all.
