Who Were Some Important People of Hinduism?

Swami Vivekananda, Aksapada Gautama, Kanada and Mirabai were all important people of Hinduism. Vivekananda lived from 1863 to 1902 and spread Hindu beliefs around the world.

A disciple of Sri Ramakrishna, he represented Hinduism in 1893 at the World Parliament of Religions. He went on many missions to teach the message of Ramakrishna.

Gautama Maharishi founded the Nyaya School of Hindi philosophy which is based on a system of knowledge taught in many Indian schools.

Kanada founded the Vaisheshika school of thought. This school of thought states that everything in the universe can be broken down into atoms.

Mirabai, born in 1498, was a Hindu saint who went against the wishes of her family to spend her life singing Hindu praises. Before she died in 1557, she wrote devotional songs and dedicated them to Sri Krishna. Sri Krishna was a spiritual teacher that was believed to be the full reincarnation of Vishnu.
