The Significance of Swami Vivekananda Message Why is Swami Vivekananda’s message is appropriate for the new millennium ? What is the significance of his message?

A Story said by Swamiji’s When Swamiji went to USA, a lady asked him to marryher. When Swami asked the lady about what made her ask him such question. The lady replied that she wasfascinated by his intellect. She wanted a child of such an intellect. So she asked Swami, whether he could marry her and give a child like him. He said to that lady, that since she was attracted only by his intellect, there is no problem. “My dear lady, i understand Your desire. Marrying and bringing a child in to this world and understanding whether it is intelligent or not takes very long time. More over it is not guaranteed. Instead, to fulfill Your desire immediately, i can suggest a guaranteed way. Take me as Your child. You are my mother. Now on Your desire of having a child of my intellect is fulfilled.” The lady was speechless.
