Soon after Ramkrishna Parmahans Maha Samadhi, Naren sees in a vision his Master who asks him to carry his spiritual message to the West. Encouraged and helped by the Maharaha of Khetri, he sails for America. At the suggestion of the Mharaja, Naren assumes the name of Swami Vivekanand.

Like Sri Ramkrishna, Swami Vivekanand sets the day he will enter into the last trance of Maha-Samadhi. He has a premonition of his untimely death and tells Sister Nevedita, "I am miaking ready for death but death has a different meaning for me when death approaches me, all fear and weakness vanish. I am as hard as the pebbles on the shore, for I have touched the feet of God. Take it, I shall not cease to work I shall inspire men everywhere, until the world knows that it is one with God." . On the fourth day of July 1902, his actions are as deliberate as on any other day. After meditating for three hours in the morning, he bids his follwers farers farewell, enters into a traance, and soon his spirit leaves his body.
