"The Light" - First USA Screening at the Memorial Opera House

rot1On Saturday, August 16, 2014, The Memorial Opera House will be hosting the first United States screening of “The Light”, a movie about Swami Vivekananda’s life. Swami Vivekananda was a Hindu monk and a key figure in the introduction of the Indian philosophies of Vedanta and Yoga to the Western world and is credited with raising interfaith awareness, bringing Hinduism to the status of a major world religion during the late 19th century. Swami Vivekananda was not here to convert anyone to Hinduism, but to inspire to be better people no matter what religion they choose to practice. Swami Vivekananda visited America for the first time in 1893 and was a speaker at The Parliament of the World's Religions at the Art Institute of Chicago as part of the World’s Columbian Exposition. Here, Vivekananda gave a brief speech representing India and Hinduism. On February 27, 1894, Vivekananda visited Valparaiso and gave a speech at the Memorial Opera House. The Valparaiso Messenger published an article on March 1, 1894 about his speech and visit.
