Description

Breaking Barriers - Interfaith Conference Commemorating Sister Nivedita's 150th Birth Anniversary

Sister Nivedita (Oct 28, 1867 — Oct 13, 1911), born as Margaret Elizabeth Noble in Ireland, was an illustrious disciple of Swami Vivekananda, and a champion of Indian education and Indian Nationalism in the beginning of the 20th century. She met Swami Vivekananda in 1895 in London and traveled to Calcutta (present-day Kolkata), India in 1898. Indian History would be incomplete without taking into account the contribution of Sister Nivedita in rejuvenating the people by her lectures and writings as envisioned by Swami Vivekananda. Her epitaph in Darjeeling appropriately reads, "Here reposes Sister Nivedita who gave her all to India".
