Swami Vivekananda philosophises Easts in the West

Philosophy travels, and it travels through pen and vocal cords. It travelled in East with Lord Buddha and Swami Vivekananda took it to the West. We would like to highlight through this paper the message which Vivekananda spread. He walked as a missionary in the west, holding flag of Hindu religion at Parliament of Religion in Chicago (1893). How he philosophises the eastern ocean of knowledge and learning into an alien land with objective philosophy of past in a modern way? The philosophy of Vedanta through which he conquered the Western elite minds which modernity still speaks of. He was an integrationist of East and West. Through this paper we would be analyzing the practicality of how difficult discourse it was for Vedanta into the western philosophical thought of binary opposition, simultaneously in India considering caste system as evil? The debate of how nature is representation of supernatural consciousness of different religions. We would throw light on his mission of spiritual foundation in the West along with his goal to reach masses that have to manifest what potential has been hidden within. At last how he will be regarded as the prophet of modern age and generations (present and upcoming).
