The first Hindu monk in America Swami Vivekananda's famous Chicago appearance took place on September 11, 1893, where he spoke about similar threats that led to the terrorists attacks in the US on the same date 108 years later. A report in NWI Times brought this fact to light and a recent book - Swami Vivekananda in Chicago: New Findings by Asim Chaudhuri has more on this 'prophecy'.
I was fortunate to visit the famous Fullerton Hall (pictured here) at the Art Institute of Chicago, where Swami Vivekananda delivered these landmark speeches.
Outside the hall is a brass plaque that reads: "On this site between September 11 & 27, 1893 Swami Vivekananda (1863-1902) the first Hindu Monk from India to teach Vedanta in America, addressed the World's Parliament of Religions, held in conjunction with the world's Columbian exposition. His unprecedented success opened the way for the dialogue between Eastern and Western Religions."
Read the Swamiji's famous speeches.
