Abstract

Swamiji was the most charismatic Indian spiritual leader of the nineteenth century as Gandhiji was of the twentieth. They were contemporaries but they never met or interacted. The fact that at Chicago Parliament of Religion was delivered in 1893 and Gandhiji launched his struggle against discrimination in South Africa in the same year. Both of them came from vastly different backgrounds. Swamiji died in 1902 at age of 39 while Gandhiji plunged into the political arena at the age of 24 and led the struggle against racism and imperialism until his death in 1948. Despite these differences, the thought patterns and teachings of both Swamiji and Gandhiji share a lot in similarities and, if we look the matter in the right perspective, Gandhiji carried forward the work for reform and revitalization of India which Swamiji left unfinished. Despite these differences, the thought patterns and teachings of both Swamiji and Gandhiji share a lot in similarities and, if we look the matter in the right perspective, Gandhiji carried forward the work for reform and revitalization of India which Swamiji left unfinished. Now the humanity finds itself at crossroads once more.
