Why did Vivekananda ask Nikola Tesla in 1896 to find an equation connecting mass and energy?
Because in Shanti Parva Section 233 of the Mahabharata, Vyasa says that matter can become energy.
Check your Mbh. for details.

Vyāsa adds: “[The energy at the end] becomes sound and it becomes an attribute of Space… Then Space is all that remains…” (MBh., ŚP 233)
Amazing concept that space itself can contain energy which is very much like the modern idea of zero-point energy of vacuum.
