Speech delivered by Swami Vivekananda on September 11, 1893, at the first World’s Parliament of Religions

1. अमरीकी भाइयों और बहनों, आपने जिस स्नेह के साथ मेरा स्वागत किया है उससे मेरा दिल भर आया है. मैं दुनिया की सबसे पुरानी संत परंपरा और सभी धर्मों की जननी की तरफ़ से धन्यवाद देता हूं. सभी जातियों और संप्रदायों के लाखों-करोड़ों हिंदुओं की तरफ़ से आपका आभार व्यक्त करता हूं.

2. मैं इस मंच पर बोलने वाले कुछ वक्ताओं का भी धन्यवाद करना चाहता हूं जिन्होंने यह ज़ाहिर किया कि दुनिया में सहिष्णुता का विचार पूरब के देशों से फैला है.

3. मुझे गर्व है कि मैं उस धर्म से हूं जिसने दुनिया को सहिष्णुता और सार्वभौमिक स्वीकृति का पाठ पढ़ाया है. हम सिर्फ़ सार्वभौमिक सहिष्णुता पर ही विश्वास नहीं करते बल्कि, हम सभी धर्मों को सच के रूप में स्वीकार करते हैं.

4. मुझे गर्व है कि मैं उस देश से हूं जिसने सभी धर्मों और सभी देशों के सताए गए लोगों को अपने यहां शरण दी. मुझे गर्व है कि हमने अपने दिल में इसराइल की वो पवित्र यादें संजो रखी हैं जिनमें उनके धर्मस्थलों को रोमन हमलावरों ने तहस-नहस कर दिया था और फिर उन्होंने दक्षिण भारत में शरण ली.

5. मुझे गर्व है कि मैं एक ऐसे धर्म से हूं जिसने पारसी धर्म के लोगों को शरण दी और लगातार अब भी उनकी मदद कर रहा है.

6. मैं इस मौके पर वह श्लोक सुनाना चाहता हूं जो मैंने बचपन से याद किया और जिसे रोज़ करोड़ों लोग दोहराते हैं. ”जिस तरह अलग-अलग जगहों से निकली नदियां, अलग-अलग रास्तों से होकर आखिरकार समुद्र में मिल जाती हैं, ठीक उसी तरह मनुष्य अपनी इच्छा से अलग-अलग रास्ते चुनता है. ये रास्ते देखने में भले ही अलग-अलग लगते हैं, लेकिन ये सब ईश्वर तक ही जाते हैं.

7. मौजूदा सम्मेलन जो कि आज तक की सबसे पवित्र सभाओं में से है, वह अपने आप में गीता में कहे गए इस उपदेश इसका प्रमाण है: ”जो भी मुझ तक आता है, चाहे कैसा भी हो, मैं उस तक पहुंचता हूं. लोग अलग-अलग रास्ते चुनते हैं, परेशानियां झेलते हैं, लेकिन आखिर में मुझ तक पहुंचते हैं.”

8. सांप्रदायिकता, कट्टरता और इसके भयानक वंशजों के धार्मिक हठ ने लंबे समय से इस खूबसूरत धरती को जकड़ रखा है. उन्होंने इस धरती को हिंसा से भर दिया है और कितनी ही बार यह धरती खून से लाल हो चुकी है. न जाने कितनी सभ्याताएं तबाह हुईं और कितने देश मिटा दिए गए.

9. यदि ये ख़ौफ़नाक राक्षस नहीं होते तो मानव समाज कहीं ज़्यादा बेहतर होता, जितना कि अभी है. लेकिन उनका वक़्त अब पूरा हो चुका है. मुझे उम्मीद है कि इस सम्मेलन का बिगुल सभी तरह की कट्टरता, हठधर्मिता और दुखों का विनाश करने वाला होगा. चाहे वह तलवार से हो या फिर कलम से.
