Swami Vivekananda (born January 12, 1, V63-4 July 1920), was born to Lord Nath Dutt, an Indian Hindu monk. Indian philosophers of Vedanta and Yoga were an important person in the beginning of the western world and in the late 19th century, they were credited with enhancing interdependence awareness to bring Hinduism to a position of a major world religion.
Born in an elite Bengali family of Calcutta, Vivekananda showed a tendency towards spirituality. He was impressed with his Guru Ramkrishna, from whom he learned that all living creatures were the incarnations of God Himself and therefore, can serve God by serving mankind.
