Tribute to Swami Vivekananda in Chicago
Paying homage to Swami Vivekananda, Yoga Guru Baba Ramdev garlanded his statue at the Hindu Temple of Greater Chicago in Lemont on September 29. He said, “One hundred and twenty years ago, when in September, 1893, Swami Vivekananda gave India’s cultural message to the whole world, we remember that great moment and remember him because we have to create an India of his dreams.”
Later, Baba Ramdev went to Art Institute of Chicago, where he lit the lamp amid prayers, chants and remembered Swami Vivekananda, who spoke from the same stage in the Fullerton Hall in Art Institute of Chicago.
Baba Ramdev said, “There is an important bond between brother and sister. Although the world is going through political struggles, and becoming more modern and capitalistic, humanity is suffering. There is so much insecurity, today the whole world is suffering from Corruption”. He also said that IMF, WTO, UNO is being ruled in an undemocratic manner. If we had listened to Swami Vivekananda message then the 9/11 terrorist attack would not have happened.
