Sister Nivedita (1867–1911) ek Scots-Irish samaj sevi the jo baad mein Swami Vivekananda ke shishya bane aur Bharat ke unnati ke liye bahot kaam kiya. Swami Vivekananda ke sath Sister Nivedita ke mulakat hua 1895 saal mein London mein. Us samay Swamiji America se laut kar London mein kuch mahine ke liye thahre the. Swami Vivekananda ke sath milne ka sath sath Nivedita samajh gayi yehi woh aadmi (guru) hain jinke liye woh itne din intezar kar rahi thi. Kuch saal baad Nivedita ne ek dost ko patra mein likhi thi–:
"Suppose he had not come to London that time! Life would have been like a headless dream, for I always knew that I was waiting for something. I always said that a call would come. And it did. But if I had known more of life, I doubt whether, when the time came, I should certainly have recognised it.
Fortunately, I knew little and was spared that torture....Always I had this burning voice within, but nothing to utter. How often and often I sat down, pen in hand, to speak, and there was no speech! And now there is no end to it! As surely I am fitted to my world, so surely is my world in need of me, waiting – ready. The arrow has found its place in the bow. But if he had not come! If he had meditated, on the Himalayan peaks!...I, for one, had never been here."
