Swami Vivekananda was one of a handful of people recognized as a true saint by no less than Mahatma Gandhi.
General information on Swami Vivekananda:
He was also one of the first people to bring Eastern religion to the West (the turn of the previous century).
In 1893, he spoke at the Parliament of World Religions (in Chicago?). Apparently, an audio tape was made of the speech.
I know that, at the time, Edison was going around and recording important and interesting people. I know that he caught Walt Whitman on tape and a former slave. Perhaps he or one of his associates made these tapes.
