Digvijay Divas Anniversary

On the 11th of September, 1893, Swami Vivekananda arose at the World's Parliament of Religions in Chicago, where he arose from near obscurity to hold an audience captive by his mesmerising speech. This day is popularly known as Digvijay Divas, meaning the day (divas) Swami Vivekananda victorious over the world (digvijay).

The transcript of the speech is available here: (click) The website has a list of other speeches by Swami Vivekananda and can be a good place to visit for people who are interested in his works.
