(Harrison) Sister Devamata related a story of how she first heard about Swamiji. After the Parliament of Religions, she along with her mother and sister met a Swedenborgian minister in Ohio, who had attended the parliament in Chicago. He enthusiastically described various aspects of the sessions to them: “ ‘But,’ he continued, ‘there was one speaker who stood out above all others, because of his learning, his eloquence and his impressive personality. No other could compare with him except two or three Roman Catholic prelates, and they had sent their best men.’ He paused, leaving his brilliant figure without name or nationality. ‘Who was he?’ I asked eagerly. The minister replied quietly: ‘A Hindu—Swami Vivekananda.’ ” 15 ❊ ❊ ❊ The World’s Parliament of Religions has become an accomplished fact, and the merciful Father has helped those who labored to bring it into existence, and crowned with success their most unselfish labor. (CW [1984] 1:23)
