Through him that foreigners learn about the sanatana hindu dharma and yoga science.

Swami Vivekananda, who had a profound knowledge of Vedanta philosophy, was one of the most powerful advocates of these issues in modern times. The 1982 Chicago Conference was a significant event in Swami Vivekananda's life. The meditation on the rock in the middle of the ocean in Kanyakumari, which led to that decision to attend the Chicago conference. Later this rock was known as Vivekananda Rock. It was from Swami Vivekananda that foreigners learned deeply about the true aims and effectiveness of yoga science. As the practice of yoga became more and more common in the West, many practitioners began to practice yoga. It is widely accepted that Swami Vivekananda's teachings have been able to awaken the Indian youth. As a mark of respect for him, who gave his life to Hinduism, humanity, yoga, science and modernity, Swami Vivekananda's birthday is celebrated as National Youth Day - January 12, 1902, when he was just 39 years old.

Patanjali Maharshi

Patanjali is said to be the incarnation of the serpent king Adi Sasi who lived in the 2nd century BC who established yoga as a scientific health practice. His name is a renowned sage in hinduism who is thought to be the author of a number of Sanskrit works. The greatest of these is the Yoga Sutra, which is the source of modern day yoga. There is doubt as to whether the sage Patanjali is the author of all the works attributed to him as there are a number of known historical authors of the same name. A great deal of scholarship has been devoted over the last century to the issue of the historicity or identity of this author or these authors

According to tradition, the same Patanjali was also the author of the Mahabhasya, a commentary on Katyayana's varttika on Panini's Astadhyayi and of an unspecified work of medicine. Patanjali's place of birth is held to be "Gonarda", India and he described himself as a "Gonardiya" throughout his life. This corroborates Tirumular's Tirumandhiram, which describes him as hailing from Then Kailasam, and he famously visited the Thillai Nataraja Temple, Chidambaram, where he wrote the Charana Shrungarahita Stotram on Nataraja. In recent decades, the Yoga Sutra has become quite popular worldwide for the precepts regarding practice of Raja Yoga and its philosophical basis. "Yoga" in traditional Hinduism involves inner contemplation, a system of meditation practice and ethics.
