Swami Vivekananda was a visionary par excellence. He was a prophet-monk and great revolutionary in the domain of all-round development of mankind. Profound thoughts welled up in his heart and he dreamt of freedom, equality, and oneness. Swamiji says: The problem of life is becoming deeper and broader every day as the world moves on. ... One atom in this universe cannot move without dragging the whole world along with it. There cannot be any progress without the whole world following in the wake, and it is becoming every day clearer that the solution of any problem can never be attained on racial, or national, or narrow grounds. Every idea has to become broad till it covers the whole of this world, every aspiration must go on increasing till it has engulfed the whole of unity, nay, the whole of life, within its scope. `As soon as this idea of separation comes, it opens the door to all mischief and leads to all misery. `....No individual or nation can live by holding itself apart from the community of others, and wherever such an attempt has been made under the false ideas of greatness, policy, or holiness - the result has always been disastrous to the secluded one.
