Swami Vivekananda was born Narendranath Datta in a Kayastha family, the capital of British India, on 12 January 1863 during the Makar Sankranti festival. He was 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. He was a major force in the revival of Hinduism in India and contributed to the concept of nationalism in colonial India.
