The first occasion that Hindus presented their religion to a large audience in the West was the World's Parliament of Religions. This remarkable convention was held in Chicago in 1893. Delegates from many Christian churches as well as some representatives of non-Christian religions participated in the interreligious dialogue. Among them were two Hindus: a member of teh reform movement Brâhma Samâj and a monk who was regarded as the representative of traditional Hinduism. His name was Vivekânanda.
