"I would refer in the first place to that greater word Advaitam. The word Advaitam really means, the occasions of all spiritual life, to see (as the Upanishads tells us). The Universal self in all things and all things in the Universal self. I feel that the greatest of all debts the youths of modern India owe to Swami Vivekananda is the renewal in practical life of this faith in the Advaitam."
