print   ·   T  T  

Here’s a look episode 37 of Swami Vivekananda . On the concluding day of the Parliament of Religions, Vivekananda is invited again to address the gathering and he sparkles in the spirit of universal religion. Cardinal Gibbons, in his presidential address, pays tribute to the Indian monk. Several prominent Americans seek audience with him during his extended stay in Chicago. Among them are — to his amusement — girls who would like to get married to him. The most renowned rationalist of that era, Professor Ingersoll, visits him and is deeply impressed by his unconventional approach to religion. A highly acclaimed star opera singer is brought to him for counselling when she attempts suicide. By then declared probably the richest man of the world, Rockefeller dashes off with arrogance to see the monk — and leaves with unexpected results.

Catch the episode at 9 tonight on DD Podhigai.
