In the early 1890s, one of the greatest scientists of the western world worked on a challenge thrown at him by one of greatest Indian philosophers. Nikola Tesla, the extraordinary inventor and father of electricity as we know it today, met with Swami Vivekananda – one of the greatest spiritualists of Hinduism. The Indian Swami offered him a treasure trove of Vedic wisdom about the matters of energy and matter, about how the vedic science considered the universe to be charged. Tesla promised the Swami that he would mathematically demonstrate that force and matter could be equated to potential energy in some fashion. In a letter to a friend, dated February 13th, 1896, Swami Vivekananda noted the following: Mr. Tesla was charmed to hear about the Vedantic Prana and Akasha and the Kalpas, which according to him are the only theories modern science can entertain. Mr. Tesla thinks he can demonstrate that mathematically that internal linkforce and matter are reducible to potential energy. I am to go see him ne ...

A mind in that state never becomes calm; it becomes fickle. Excessive merriment will always be followed by sorrow. Tears and laughter are near kin. People so often run from one extreme to the other -- Swami Vivekananda
Swami Vivekananda Quotes - Be perfectly resigned, perfectly unconcerned; then alone can you do any true work. No eyes can see the real forces; we can only see the results. Put out self, forget it; just let God work, it is His business. Omsai.

Why a Hindu girl must not marry a Muslim boy The mysterious death of the Muslim young man Rizwanur Rehman, after his marriage with a Hindu girl Pryanka Todi, has triggered a nationwide debate regarding inter-religious marriage between Hindu girls and Muslim boys. As the matter is still under the jurisdiction of the honourable court of law, one cannot say whether it is a case of murder or suicide. While talking to journalists, Mr Hazrat S M Nurul Rehman kati, the Imam of the Tipu Sultan Mosque of Kolkata, declared it to be a murder and expressed his apprehension that RSS is involved in the crime. But it seems more probable to have a hand of the Islamist terrorist groups in the affair. In a letter written by Rizwanur to an NGO, a copy of which is with the local Trinamul Congress MLA, Javed Khan, Rizwan has been reported to have expressed his decision to desert Islam and embrace Hinduism. In fact, Javed Khan was acting as a mediator between Rizwanur and Ashok Todi, the father of Priyanka. In this context, on ...

I also felicitated scientists of the Anvesana Reserach Facility of Swami Vivekananda Yoga Anusandhana Samsthana (S-Vyasa) University for their trail blazing attempts at documentation and protocol development in treatment of complicated diseases with Yoga and holistic medicine.

Yoga’s benefits in combating non-communicable diseases is a fact of life.

Here are some unknown spell bounding facts about Jesus Christ by Swami Vivekananda. (With reliable proof) Please also watch my other video at :
Study of Scriptures (Continued) Sri Ramanuja defines svadhyaya as the study of the Vedas with the conviction that they deal with God, His glories and the modes of worshiping Him. The most important part of the Vedas is their knowledge portion, known as the Upani- shads, or Vedanta. The Upanishads deal with the true nature of God and of man, and the goal of human life, which is God-realization, or Self-realization. The Right Attitude toward Scriptural Study A study of the Upanishads is difficult without a teacher’s help. Traditional commentaries are also a great help in understanding the Upanishads. But these commentaries include detailed discussions on opponents’ viewpoints and their refutation, and elaborate reflections on finer aspects of Sanskrit grammar. A scholar certainly revels in the mastery of all these details, but a devotee’s attitude is different: he studies scriptures in order to keep his mind on a higher level, sharpen his power to discriminate between what leads to God and what leads ...

Very interesting story...Sridhar Kadambari The story behind IISc. Banglore( courtesy K Jogarao) And so, the story goes that Jamshedji Nusserwanji Tata was once, travelling to Germany. As he stood there, at the door of his First Class Cabin in the Steam-liner, he noticed a lot of activity on the lower decks of the Ship. On enquiring, he learnt that a great Indian Saint Shri Swami Vivekananda was on board thesame ship. Â Out of genuine respect and curiosity J.N. Tata decided to pay a visit to the great saint. Swami Vivekananda had of-course heard about the respected industrialist. As the conversation grew J.N. Tata explained that he was on his way to Germany. Â "I have with me sacks of soil : From various parts of India. I am taking these samples of soil to Germany. I wish to know IF Iron can be extracted profitably from any of these districts." said J.N. Tata to the Saint. Â To which Swami Vivekananda replied, "Well, Sir, Even IF these sacks contain Iron-rich soil, do you honestly believe that the Germa ...

Swami Vivekananda … An old editorial page (When i was working part time in a daily News Paper)
Rouse yourselves, therefore, for life is short. There are greater works to be done than aspiring to become lawyers, and picking quarrels, and such things. A far greater work is this sacrifice of yourselves for the benefit of your race, for the welfare of humanity. – Swami Vivekananda.
Fire and enthusiasm must be in our blood. I believe we have it. We have been ridiculed as an imaginative race, as men with a good deal of feeling. Let me tell you, my friends, intellect is great indeed, but it stops within certain bounds. It is through the heart, and the heart alone, that inspiration comes. It is through the feelings that the highest secrets are reached. SWAMI VIVEKANANDA

A story about the finest Education Institute of India from its establishment to current status, a worth read and share !! Indian Institute of Science (Bangalore) is truly the first example of a public-private partnership in this country; an institution, whose evolution over a century is testimony to the robustness of its foundations. The Indian Institute of Science (IISc) was conceived as a ´Research Institute´ or ´University of Research´ by Jamsetji Nusserwanji Tata, in the final years of the 19th century. A long period of almost thirteen years was to elapse from the initial conception in 1896 to the birth of the institute on May 27, 1909. The early history of the Institute is a fascinating chapter in the story of higher education and scientific research in India. The cast of characters in the drama that led to the establishment of the Institute includes, in addition to its charismatic and generous founder J.N. Tata, figures from the pages of Indian history. There is Swami Vivekananda, whom J.N. Tata ...

. The Concept Of Hindu Rashtra K. Surya Narayan Rao, Bangalore, Senior RSS Pracharak I am proud to be a worker Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh, for whom Hindu Rashtra is the cardinal principle. It is a matter of conviction and faith for us. It is our life breath. This concept of Hindu Rashtra is not a creation of R.S.S. Great savants like Swami Vivekananda, Arvinda Ghosh, Lokamanya Tilak, Swatantrya Veer Savarkar, Mahakavi Subramanya Bharati and others have all proclaimed our nation as Hindu Rashtra. Dr. Annie Besant and Sister Nivedita, both accomplished intellectuals from the West, who were attracted by the culture and people of this country, and adopted this country as their motherland, have also acknowledged our nation as Hindu Rashtra. But now political leaders and a section of the media are trying to create some confusion about this Hindu Rashtra belief. Each is interpreting according to his own understanding and background, neither there realising the truth nor keeping an open mind to know what the pro ...

Role of SindhWorkis (Sindhi Traders in foreign countries) in Gadar Revolt & INA under Subhash Chandra Bose Submitted by: Dial V. Gidwani- Sindhu American , American Institute of Sindhulogy Sindhulogy The Sindhi Hindu community uprooted as the result of India’s Partition, now girdles the globe. But then for Sindhi traders, globalization was never a new concept. For decades, well before Partition, Sindhi traders (commonly known as SindhWorkis) had established themselves practically in every city of the world, with larger concentration in Japan, Singapore, Hong Kong, Indonesia and Malaysia; through the Middle East to Africa and Gibraltar, and across Britain and Europe to the U.S. and Latin America. So much was the presence of these Sindhi traders in practically every world city that a dear old lady, whom I had the pleasure of knowing, commented after Neil Armstrong’s dramatic landing on the Moon, “Amazing, he found no one there, not even a Sindhi trader!” This joke was extended by a well known Sin .. ...
A great father... Because of poverty and family responsibilities my father postponed his dreams of becoming a teacher and writer until the age 60. Then he flowered. He travelled throughout India to give talks and published ten books on a variety of topics including Aging, Dying with Dignity and Swami Vivekananda. Some of them are reprinted. He is 80 and with us in Canada for two months to enjoy beautiful summer and also to complete two more books. He showed me that it’s never too late to realize your dreams. He also told me that that he would like to leave the world, the way my mother did. She was a born home maker and died while dusting the furniture. He wants to die while reading or writing.
- Swami Vivekananda Buddha VIVEKANANDA ON LORD BUDDHA He was the only man who was bereft of all motive power. There were other great men who all said they were the Incarnations of God Himself, and that those who would believe in them would go to heaven. But what did Buddha say with his dying breath? "None can help you; help yourself; work out your own salvation." He said about himself, "Buddha is the name of infinite knowledge, infinite as the sky; I, Gautama, have reached that state; you will all reach that too if you struggle for it." Bereft of all motive power, he did not want to go to heaven, did not want money; he gave up his throne and everything else and went about begging his bread through the streets of India, preaching for the good of men and animals with a heart as wide as the ocean.
It is our own mental attitude which makes the world what it is for us. Our thoughts make things beautiful, our thoughts make things ugly. The whole world is in our own minds. Learn to see things in the proper light --swami vivekananda
Swami Vivekananda -- This is the gist of all worship -- to be pure and to do good to others. He who sees Siva in the poor, in the weak, and in the diseased, really worships Siva, and if he sees Siva only in the image, his worship is but preliminary. He who has served and helped one poor man seeing Siva in him, without thinking of his cast, creed, or race, or anything, with him Siva is more pleased than with the man who sees Him only in temples.

In 1902, a professor asked his student whether it was God who created everything that exists in the universe? Student replied: Yes He again asked: What about evil? Has God created evil also? The student got silent... Then the student requested that may he ask a question for him? Professor allowed him to do so. He asked: Does cold exist? Professor said: Yes! Don't you feel the cold dear? Student said: I'm sorry but you are wrong sir. Cold is a complete absence of heat... There is no cold, it is only an absence of heat. Student asked again: Does darkness exist? Professor Said: Yes! Student replied: you are again wrong sir. There is no such thing like darkness. Its actually the absence of light. Sir! We always study light & heat, but not cold & darkness. Similarly, the evil does not exist. Actually it is the absence of love, faith & true belief in God. That student was... Swami Vivekananda...!!!
"Do not stand on a high pedestal and take 5 cents in your hand and say, 'here, my poor man', but be grateful that the poor man is there, so by making a gift to him you are able to help yourself.It is not the reciever that is blessed, but it is the giver.Be thankful that you are allowed to exercise your power of benevolence and mercy in the world, and thus become pure and perfect." -Swami Vivekananda
FREQUENCY AND VIBRATION Nikola Tesla was convinced that everything in the universe, from galaxies to electrons, consists of vibration and frequency. He also felt that everything in the cosmos is connected by a single pervasive “super” consciousness, or one intelligent living organism. “My brain is only a receiver,” he said. “In the universe there is a core from which we obtain knowledge, strength, inspiration. I have not penetrated into the secrets of this core, but I know it exists.” This greatest inventor of the 20th century used ancient Sanskrit terminology to understand natural phenomena. As early as 1891, Nikola Tesla described the universe as a kinetic system filled with energy, which could be harnessed at any location. His concepts during the following years were greatly influenced by the teachings of Swami Vivekananda. Swami Vivekananda was the first of a succession of Eastern yogis who brought Vedic philosophy and religion to the West. After meeting the swami and after continued study ...
Anger is a form of weakness. Swami Vivekananda said that weakness is death.
When do we feel the need of God? ‘We want everything but God, because our ordinary desires are fulfilled by the external world. So long as our needs are confirmed within the limits of the physical universe, we do not feel any need for God; it is only when we have had hard blows in our lives and are disappointed with everything here that we feel the need for something higher; then we seek God.’ - Swami Vivekananda

Returned yesterday from Mumbai after participating in the Annual celebration of Ramakrishna Math, Mumbai.On 28th June I spoke on Avatarvarishtha Sri Ramakrishna and explained how Sri Ramakrishna - the latest and most perfect incarnation of God according to Swami Vivekananda, killed demons of doubt (Sanshay Rakshas), demon of fanaticism (Dharmandhata Rakshas) and demon of consumerism (Bhogwad Rakshas). On 29th June, during the Spiritual Retreat, I spoke on the significance of Spiritual Retreat, how it gives an opportunity to us to think about the ultimate purpose of life, there was interesting question-answer session towards the end of the Retreat.

"All power is within you; you are the reservoir of omnipotent power… Awake from this hypnotism of weakness. None is really weak; the soul is infinite, omnipotent and omniscient. Stand up, assert yourself, proclaim the God within you… Teach yourself, teach everyone his real nature, call upon the sleeping soul and see how it awakes. Power will come, glory will come, goodness will come, purity will come and everything that is excellent will come, when the sleeping soul is roused to Self-conscious activity." ~ Swami Vivekananda
Viveka Vaani: For Spiritual & Material well being: Prayer is not a "spare wheel" that you pull out when in trouble, but it is a "steering wheel" that directs the right path throughout. Do you know why a Car's WINDSHIELD is so large & the Rear view Mirror is so small? Because our PAST is not as important as our FUTURE. Look Ahead and Move on. Friendship is like a BOOK. It takes few seconds to burn, but it takes years to write. All things in life are temporary. If going well, enjoy it, they will not last forever. If going wrong, don't worry, they can't last long either. Old Friends are Gold! New Friends are Diamond! If you get a Diamond, don't forget the Gold! Because to hold a Diamond, you always need a Base of Gold! Often when we lose hope and think this is the end, GOD smiles from above and says, "Relax, sweetheart, it's just a bend, not the end! When GOD solves your problems, you have faith in HIS abilities; when GOD doesn't solve your problems HE has faith in your abilities. A blind person asked Swami ...

This is a time when the country and the world are celebrating the 150th Birth Anniversary of some of the renowned personalities like Kaviguru Rabindranath Tagore, Swami Vivekananda, Sir Asutosh Mookerjee, Anagarika Dharmapala and Karmayogi Kripasaran Mahasthavir (1865 – 1926). We here at the Bauddha Dharmankur Sabha (Bengal Buddhist Association) feel privileged to have got the opportunity to celebrate the 150th Birth Anniversary of our Founder. Born on 22nd June 1865 in Unainepura in the district of Chittagong in the then undivided India which today is in Bangladesh, he came here in the prime of his youth after being ordained in 1885 and pledged to himself to work for the regeneration of Buddhism and Buddhist culture in the land of its birth which was already in a steady decline and also to unite the scattered Barua Buddhist community which lay scattered and fragmented in different parts of India. He established the Nabin Vihar in 72/73 Malanga Lane in 1886 in a rented house where he stayed for three ye ...
10 Scientific Studies That Prove Consciousness Can Alter Our Physical Material World Nikola Tesla said it best, “the day science begins to study non-physical phenomena, it will make more progress in one decade than in all the previous centuries of its existence. To understand the true nature of the universe, one must think it terms of energy, frequency and vibration.” Swami Vivekananda was Tesla’s mentor, an Indian Hindu monk and chief disciple of the 19th century saint Ramakrishna. Science works best when in harmony with nature. If we put these two together, we can discover great technologies that can only come about when the consciousness of the planet is ready to embrace them, like free energy. I want to make it clear that my intention of presenting this information is to demonstrate that thoughts, intentions, prayer and other units of consciousness can directly influence our physical material world. Consciousness can be a big factor in creating change on the planet. Sending thoughts of love, hea ...

Kasar Devi has history and is a legendary place : Read on--- Kasar Devi first became known when in the 1890s, Swami Vivekananda visited and meditated here and has mentioned his experience in his diaries.. Walter Evans-Wentz, a pioneer in the study of Tibetan Buddhism, who later translated The Tibetan Book of the Dead, stayed here for some time. . Then in the 1930s, Danish mystic Sunyata Baba (Alfred Sorensen) came here and lived here the over three decades, as did Ernst Hoffman, who became Tibetan Buddhist Lama Anagarika Govinda and Li Goutami. This lead to a series of spiritual seekers from the west, visiting them. In 1961, Govinda was visited by Beat poets, Allen Ginsberg, Peter Orlovsky and Gary Snyder. In later history, at the peak of the Hippie movement, the area also became a part of the Hippie trail. Crank's Ridge, colloquially known as Hippie Hill, which lies ahead of Kasar Devi became a popular destination. It became home to several bohemian artists, writers and western Tibetan Buddhists, and eve ...

He was born in 1836 in Kamarpukar village in Hooghly district of West Bengal. * He was a priest in Dakshineshwar temple of Goddess Kali near Calcutta. * He sought religious salvation in traditional ways of renunciation, meditation & devotion * Emphasized that service to man was service to god * His thinking was rooted deeply in Indian thought and culture although he emphasized the truth in all religions.

Today I was in RKM Chandigarh, talking with a maharajji (monk). 2 senior police inspectors stormed in for approach of their superitendent's kid for admission in RKM School. Now the maharajji humbly scolded them off and never forgot to mention to send his 'words' to the superitendent. After I walked out the 2 policemen signalled me near van asking in shock, what 'approach' these men in saffron have? :D I ended up replying, from an ordinary me to the Prime Minister of India are regular devotees of this place. And all devotees, non-devotees are treated equally at its gate. Unless they carry a letter of approach from the Governor General, Swami Vivekananda or the Emperor, Sri Ramakrishna or a Buddha, Christ, Nanak, Mohammad etc - himself; these men in saffron can't be startled or bombed with however big an authority or name. Next moment, the van was speeding at 60 :D :D
HARI OM A LAND OF DEEPENING MORAL VACUUM Vivekanand Jha Author of Delhi Beckons: RaGa for NaMo Modi's development agenda and his dream to elevate India to the level of Jagatguru will remain inconsequential unless India's moral compass is restructured and redefined and the ever widening gap between the two extreme sides of the moral pendulum is successfully bridged. While delivering a memorable speech in U.S.A, Swami Vivekananda had proudly said that while the western forefathers wandered in the forest as barbarians, their oriental counterparts meditated on god and sincerely endeavoured to realise Him. Although Swami Vivekananda sought to portray a positive image of the wretched India through the prism of spirituality, it still satiated his heart that his motherland had the singular distinction of being the moral guardian of the world which taught the world the concept of morality and god. And he greatly succeeded in his mission: selling the moral and spiritual superiority of orientals to the Americans who ...
Swami Vivekananda : Life and Teachings Swami Vivekananda, known in his pre- monastic life as Narendranath Datta , was born in an affluent family in Kolkata on 12 January 1863. His father, Vishwanath Datta, was a successful attorney with interests in a wide range of subjects, and his mother, Bhuvaneshwari Devi, was endowed with deep devotion, strong character and other qualities. A precocious boy, Narendra excelled in music, gymnastics and studies. By the time he graduated from Calcutta University, he had acquired a vast knowledge of different subjects, especially Western philosophy and history. Born with a yogic temperament, he used to practise meditation even from his boyhood, and was associated with Brahmo Movement for some time. With Sri Ramakrishna At the threshold of youth Narendra had to pass through a period of spiritual crisis when he was assailed by doubts about the existence of God. It was at that time he first heard about Sri Ramakrishna from one of his English professors at college. One day in ...

Prime Minister Modi to clear up Subhas Bose's mystery: Bangla newspaper Leading Bangla daily Bartman Patirka has carried a front page story in its today's edition. rough translation rendered by Diptasya Jash reads as follows: "At last Narendra Modi has got a chance to pay respect to his role models. Narendra Modi earnestly wants to give tribute to his role models with the highest honour of the country. In that list the first two names are Swami Vivekananda and Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose. According to sources in BJP Modi has already talked about his desires with several party leaders. Along with these names Madan Mohan Malabya and Atal Vihari Vajpayee's name are also there. There is some debate also going on within the BJP over this matter. The question is even if Modi want to award Bharat Ratna to Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose for paying the highest order of respect how much is it possible? The first question is whether this will be posthumous? If so, then on what basis? Obviously there will be protest from ...

Swami Vivekananda and Varanasi Swami Vivekananda had a deep and ardent devotion to Vishwanatha and to Varanasi, which is revealed in his numerous utterances and writings on as well as his few visits to Varanasi. Swamiji’s visits to Varanasi are particularly memorable. Here occurred that famous incident, between Sankata Mochana and Durga Kunda: Swamiji was being chased by a group of monkeys, but was unable to escape from them, when an old monk called out to him, ‘Face the brutes!’ Swamiji did just that, and the monkeys beat a hasty retreat, revealing to him the life-long lesson of boldly facing the brute. It was to Sri Pramadadas Mitra, the reputed scholar of Kashi, that Swamiji looked for answers to various scriptural questions during his Baranagar monastery days in the 1880s. He also shared with him his Master’s teachings and hoped that Pramadadas Babu would help him acquire funds for his Master’s memorial in Bengal. Unfortunately, Pramadadas Babu did not approve of Swamiji’s efforts. Subsequ ...
We Bengalis love to take credit. Just wait till you see all the people lauding the influence of Syamaprasad and Swami Vivekananda on the prime minister in waiting.
In 1893 Swami Vivekananda won the heart of the entire world by saying “Sisters & Brothers of America".In 2014 Modi did it by saying "Mitron"
Narendra Modi should consider removing (Rajiv Indira Jawaharlal) names from awards and Yojnas and replace them with Swami Vivekananda, Neta ji Subhash Chandra Bose, Bhagat Singh etc's names there instead.

Once Naren (Swami Vivekananda) told his Master, "You are, all the time, thinking of me. Don't you know the story of King Bharata? He always thought of a deer and then he had to become a deer. Don't you know the story?" The other disciples said, "Naren, you are insulting Ramakrishna. You always ignore Ramakrishna, calling him mad and all that." But Ramakrishna immediately took Naren's rebuke seriously for he was, after all, a serious student of Western philosophy, Eastern philosophy, the Indian scriptures, etc. So he went and told his Divine Mother, Kali, what Naren had said if that is True ! Mother Kali told him, "No, you are not running after Naren. You are running after the Divinity that you see in Naren. It is for that you are running. But that Divinity will express itself only in years to come." So Ramakrishna went back to Naren and said, "It is not you that I want; it is the Divinity inside you."
When Swami Vivekananda said that each soul is potentially divine,he missed "and devious" part and such people are denigrating his legacy!
"Condemn none: if you can stretch out a helping hand, do so. If you cannot, fold your hands, bless your brothers, and let them go their own way." Swami Vivekananda

All great undertakings are achieved through might obstacles. SWAMI VIVEKANANDA
I am glad I was born, glad I suffered so, glad I did make big blunders, glad to enter peace. Whether this body will fall and release me or I enter into freedom in the body, the old man is gone, gone for ever, never to come back again! Behind my work was ambition, behind my love was personality, behind my purity was fear. Now they are vanishing and I drift. (Swami Vivekananda on himself a few years before his death)
my friend that religion must be universal..acceptable to all,much like Vedanta as advocated by Swami Vivekananda. 1/2
BJP and allies has 336 MP. If they have the confirmed assurance of ADMK=37 will take them to 373, which is way over the 2/3 majority(362 of the 543 LS house) needed for any constitutional reforms/amendments. Be it related to Judiciary/Legislative/Executive reforms, very needed towards a positive vibrant change. Lets long to witness the promises/real intention/truth to be delivered to their fellow Indians. Hoping the words of Swami Vivekananda,if Mr. Narender Modi is a passionate admirer of this great Swami, as stipulated, longing to witness the reality when in absolute power to be deliver to rhetorical. Arise, awake, and stop not till the goal is reached. His message to the Hindus(80.5% population of Indians) to get out of their hypnotized state of mind, if its actualized/bloomed to their potential with timE.. AK
I bow down to the people of Uttar Pradesh. They have given 73 seats for the welfare of India. As many of my friends know, from my childhood, I had great respect and passion for Uttar Pradesh and Bihar. The so called literate and arrogant people defame them, but I just ignore them. There is no other place in the world where people are so religious. They have the greatest respect for our ancient culture and tradition. Many of my friends know that the reason I have come to IIT Kanpur is that it is situated in Uttar Pradesh- this sacred land of Ramchandra, Sri Krishna,... the playground of Child Gopal. academics is NOT the ONLY reason. And of course, after coming to IIT Kanpur, I feel the same. Swami Vivekananda spent most of the time here while travelling accross India as a mendicant monk. He had wonderful realizations when he met different people here. Till now people have deep respect for Swamiji- while many of the Bengalees only laugh at him! After the LS polls, my affection has increased 1000 folds. Toda ...

Nobody has had the guts to say whatever Swami Vivekananda said. It comes from the realisation of Atma, that kills all fear.

Thoughts:If Swami Vivekananda were alive he would have been termed communal. Upanishads
No impure soul can be really religious. Purity in thought, speech, and act is absolutely necessary for any one to be religious. As to the thirst after knowledge, it is an old law that we all get whatever we want. None of us can get anything other than what we fix our hearts upon. To pant for religion truly is a very difficult thing, not at all so easy as we generally imagine. Hearing religious talks or reading religious books is no proof yet of a real want felt in the heart; there must be a continuous struggle, a constant fight, an unremitting grappling with our lower nature, till the higher want is actually felt and the victory is achieved. It is not a question of one or two days, of years, or of lives; the struggle may have to go on for hundreds of lifetimes. The success sometimes may come immediately, but we must be ready to wait patiently even for what may look like an infinite length of time. The student who sets out with such a spirit of perseverance will surely find success and realisation at last. ...
This is a video from Swami Vivekananda Subharti University in Meerut, Uttar Pradesh, India. Yes this is India where Kashmiri students are celebrating victory of Pakistan over India in a cricket match. The noise you hear is a mixed bag of "Pakistan zindabad" and "allahu Akbar". What kind of Indians are they ? Do you really expect these guys to stand for our nation? Here they are, the separatists. They feed off our national wealth and use it to support our enemy nation and the terrorists they send to kill our soldiers. What you see and hear in this video is a clear proof of the fact that this nation needs to address this problem in a stern manner. Read this if you're still confused:
Strength is life, weakness is death. Strength is felicity, life is eternal, immortal; weakness is constant strain and misery; weakness is death.---Swami Vivekananda
Swami Vivekananda We are responsible for what we are, and whatever we wish ourselves to be, we have the power to make ourselves. If what we are now has been the result of our past actions, it certainly follows that whatever we wish to be in future can be produced by our present actions; so we have to know how to act. Men generally lay all the blame of life on their fellowmen, or failing that, on God, or they conjure up a ghost, and say it is fate. Where is fate and who is fate? We reap what we sow. We are the makers of our own fate. None else has the blame, none has the praise. The wind is blowing; those vessels whose sails are unfurled catch it, and go forward on their way, but those who have their sails furled do not catch the wind. Is that the fault of the wind? Say, "This misery that I am suffering is of my own doing, and that very thing proves that it will have to be undone by me alone." That which I created, I can demolish; that which is created by someone else, I shall never be able to destroy. The ...
Art from my heart Title: Swami Vivekananda Sketch with merely blue ink ball dot point pen By Janak, 2002
The Great Speech by Swami Vivekananda At the World's Parliament of Religions, Chicago 11th September, 1893 I will tell you a little story. You have heard the eloquent speaker who has just finished say, "Let us cease from abusing each other," and he was very sorry that there should be always so much variance. But I think I should tell you a story which would illustrate the cause of this variance. A frog lived in a well. It had lived there for a long time. It was born there and brought up there, and yet was a little, small frog. Of course the evolutionists were not there then to tell us whether the frog lost its eyes or not, but, for our story's sake, we must take it for granted that it had its eyes, and that it every day cleansed the water of all the worms and bacilli that lived in it with an energy that would do credit to our modern bacteriologists. In this way it went on and became a little sleek and fat. Well, one day another frog that lived in the sea came and fell into the well. "Where are you from?" ...
The best sentence by Swami Vivekananda... "take risks with your life" if u win,u can lead! If u loose,u can guide!
Just wondering - Bengal gave us many nationalists such as Swami Vivekananda, Bankim Chandra Chattopadhyay, Netaji Bose, BJP founder member Shyama Prasad Mukharji...who all inspired us immensely for nationalism... and it also gave us many ''intellectual liberals'' such as Sagarika, Arundhati, Barkha, Nandita, Pritish Nandi, Amrtya Sen... to name a few What was god thinking of - a balancing act.
Narendra Modi, the man who used to sell tea at Vadnagar Railway station in Gujarat, is all set to become the 14th Prime Minister of India. The journey of Narendra Modi from ‘Vadnagar’ to the likely occupant of 7, Race Course Road has been truly remarkable. Modi has seen many ups and downs in his life and career. Before taking over as Chief Minister of Gujarat in 2001, Modi was a purely organizational man who had never contested any elections. But once he was anointed as the Chief Minister of Gujarat, there was no looking back for Modi and he won three state elections in a row. Nobody can explain what exactly makes him so popular among hoi-polloi. At the same time, he is widely known as a person who wears his heart on his sleeves. Even his opponents admire him for his bold and fearless stand on sensitive issues that can dent his carefully crafted image of a no-nonsense man. No other Chief Minister in India evokes as much hatred as Narendra Modi but at the same time no other Chief Minister commands as . ...

If faith in ourselves had been more extensively taught and practiced, I am sure a very large portion of the evils and miseries that we have would have vanished. ~ Swami Vivekananda
Behind my hard work and success are due to inspiration from Swami Vivekananda and Narendra Modi . My slogan - Go ahead don't look back. I got message from Modi for our conference which was grand success.
An All India Youth Convention was organised by Ramakrishna Mission at Belur Math as a part of its centenary celebration (Ramakrishna Mission was started in 1897 by Swami Vivekananda)on 3 and 4 February, 1898 in which more than ten thousand youths participated.I was in the panel during the question-answer question. An interesting question came up - "We, the youths have great regard and confidence in the monks of Ramakrishna Mission, the condition of the nation is pathetic,why the monks of Ramakrishna Mission are not coming forward to join Politics and occupy important positions and bring about transformation in the country?"I replied - " Thank you for the compliments, but we can not enter Politics because Swami Vivekananda who started Ramakrishna Mission, said that it was purely a spiritual organisation and the members of this organisation will have nothing to do with Politics, even Sister Nivedita (Miss Margaret Nobel) had to resign because of her active participation in Freedom Moment. But that does not ...

The Winners do not quit and the Quitters do not win. Swami Vivekananda.
""Seek ye first the kingdom of God, and everything shall be added unto you." This is the one great duty, this is renunciation. Live for an ideal, and leave no place in the mind for anything else. Let us put forth all our energies to acquire that which never fails -our spiritual perfection. If we have true yearning for realization, we must struggle, and through struggle growth will come. We shall make mistakes, but they may be angels unawares." "The Vedanta recognizes no sin it only recognizes error. And the greatest error, says the Vedanta is to say that you are weak, that you are a sinner, a miserable creature, and that you have no power and you cannot do this and that." "Never say, "O Lord, I am a miserable sinner." Who will help you? You are the help of the universe. What in this universe can help you? What can prevail over you? You are the God of the universe; where can you seek for help? Never help came from anywhere but from yourself. In your ignorance, every prayer that you made and that was answer ...
When Swami Vivekananda went to U.S.A., a lady asked him to marry her. When Swami asked the lady about what made her ask him such question. The lady replied that she was fascinated by his intellect. She wanted a child of such an intellect. So, she asked Swami, whether he could marry her and give a child like him. He said to that lady, that since she was attracted only by his intellect, there is no problem. My dear lady, I understand your desire. Marrying and bringing a child in to this world and understanding whether it is intelligent or not takes very long time. More over it is not guaranteed. Instead, to fulfill your desire immediately, I can suggest a guaranteed way. Take me as your child. You are my mother. Now your desire of having a child of my intellect is fulfilled. The lady was speechless. Great thinking.
"This universe is the wreckage of the infinite on the shores of the finite."- Swami Vivekananda
When everything seems to stand against you, when the ground under feet seems fast eroding, there comes a magic word from Swami Vivekananda that gives a cyclonic push to the soul and suddenly you start laughing at the crisis saying, "what folly ! When was I weak and helpless ? Isn't divinity playing trick with me ? In presence of ever acting Divinity, who cares for sparrow's fall ?" And you realize that, by thinking of yourself as weak & helpless, you were dangerously self-hypnotizing yourself !!!
“ Shivaji was the greatest Hindu king that India had produced within the last thousand years; one who was the very incarnation of lord Siva, about whom prophecies were given out long before he was born; and his advent was eagerly expected by all the great souls and saints of Maharashtra as the deliverer of the Hindus from the hands of the Mlecchas, and as one who succeeded in the reestablishment of Dharma which had been trampled under foot by the depredations of the devastating hordes of the Moghals”… Swami Vivekananda
I am surprised to hear BJP's interpretation of the word 'Secularism ' . They are trying to explain the word 'Secularism' as 'Adharma' i.e. lack of religion . I don't quite know which dictionary they fallow. They demand themselves to be the followers of Swami Vivekananda but unfortunately they don't believe or don't want to accept Vivekananda's concept of 'Secularism' - " As different streams having different sources all mingle their waters in the sea, so different tendencies, various though they appear, crooked or straight, all lead to God." 'Hindutwa' is a term coined by BJP , which they try to hold up as the synonym of Hinduism . But Hindutwa is actually an idea to use Hindu sentiment as a weapon of political gain . In the same fashion they are trying to confuse Narendra Modi with Narendranath Dutta . They are trying to confuse RamdevJi with Swamiji . It is a tragedy or bad luck that today we are to take lesson on Hinduism from BJP .

My views on Obama's invitation to Modi, and let there be a debate. To start with let me be clear, as a follower of Sri Aurobondo and Swami Vivekananda, I strongly believe that the future of the world lies in the alliance of India and USA. They are natural allies and destined partners in the future of New world order. But, Many of my friends and family members believe that Modi, if he is a true nationalist should not allow his EGO to come in the way of having good relations with America and patch up for the good of the Nation. My views are if Modi is a true Nationalist then he should not even perceive it as a rejection of his visa, but an insult to the very democratic fiber of India as a nation, an insult to the entire nation and its people, an insult to the entire judiciary system of a largest democracy. Its the same disregard for the judiciary that made them lift the family of the maid of a Deviyani Khobragade. All is not kosher just because he is personally invited by white house. Whitehouse has to come ...
A few things you may or may not know about India's future prime minister (excuse the grammar, not mine). Some are interesting, some are silly. Not sure how much fact, how much fiction: 1. Vadnagar, an ancient city that’s almost 2,500 years old, is Narendra Damordas Mulchand Modi’s birthplace. Indians strongly identify themselves with their janambhoomi, and Modi is no different. He likes the Hatkeswar Mahadeo temple, built in the 15th century, in his village. His birthplace is unique in that it saw both Hinduism and Buddhism flourish. It is also a highly cultured town that is famous for singer-duo Tana and Riri who stumped none other than the legendary Tansen in the Mughal king Akbar’s durbar. Vadnagar was once the capital of Gujarat and has a proud place in history also because the Chinese scholar Hsüan-tsang visited it during his 17-year journey through India in the seventh century and has narrated Vadnagar in detail in his fascinating memoirs. 2. Modi was born on September 17, 1950. He makes it a ...
Unlike many Indian politicians, though, Modi doesn’t put his faith on display. There are no religious icons in his office; the only adornments are two statues of his hero, the philosopher Swami Vivekananda. Everything about Modi and his surroundings is carefully manicured and controlled. He gives the impression of an autodidact who has methodically plotted his journey from small-town boy to CEO of Gujarat. A key message is that he is a self-made man, succeeding without family connections or fancy education, and his appeal is obvious in a nation of strivers." Jyoti Thottam 26.3.2012 - Time Magazine.
"Dharma is the quintessence of our national life, hold fast to it if you want your country to survive, or else you would be wiped out in three generations." ―Swami Vivekananda.
Pride of India summed up by SV - If there is any land on this earth that can lay claim to be the blessed Punyabhumi, to be the land to which all souls on this earth must come to account for their Karma, the land to which every soul wending its way godward must come to attain its last home, the land where humanity has attained its highest towards gentleness, towards generosity, towards purity, towards calmness, above all, the land of introspection & sprituality,.it is India! - Swami Vivekananda I feel India can return back to her elements of spirituality. Congress never had this sort of vision for India. Now that we all have removed congress from power, India can resume its path on being the spiritual capital of the world and return back to its glory of richness as in the past supporting one and all, all around the world in the quest of understanding where we come from, what are we doing here on earth & how we can transcend into the higher plane of divinity and spread the fragrance of divinity around the . ...
Dear Narendra Modi ji, Namaskar. People are celebrating victory of democracy across India and your party is also celebrating. You said now elections are over and it is time to work. We Indians feel that you are the ONLY "ray of hope" for India and hence elected you with this thumping majority to your party. However, we are worried that the government may be paralyzed if you & your MPs focus on getting power in 4-5 states which will go for elections in next 6 months. In addition to these turmoil in Bihar and Delhi governments. Added to these you do not have opposition - No other party got 10% total seats in parliament to be in opposition. Following attributes of yours are the reason for this victory with high responsibility. 1. CEO like working style : You worked as CEO of Gujarat rather than CM and managed campaign also like CEO. This is the main reason for people electing some of the corrupt leaders from your party as MPs. 2. Respect for legal and constitutional bodies: You started talking about seva to ...

With Bharatiya Janata Party`s Narendra Modi poised to become India`s next prime minister, monks of Ramakrishna Mission feel the ardent devotee of Swami Vivekananda could bring his teachings of religious harmony to the masses and harness youth power to power growth.

The protracted, arduous journey of Hindu Nationalism for more than a century originating from the pen and lofty aspirations of Bankim Chandra Chatterjee, through the Uttarpara Speech of Aurodindo Ghosh, fiery speeches and acts of Swami Dayanada Swraswati , Swami Vivekananda, Swami Pranabanada ji, Bal Gangadhar Tilak, Bipin Chandra Pal, Lala Lajpat Rai, Pandit Madan Mohan Malavya, Vinayak Damodar Savarkar, Dr. Hedgewar, Sri Golwalkar, Dr. Shyamaprasad Mukherjee, Balasaheb Thackeray reaches the second stage of evolution with the ascension of Nardendra Modi to the Prime Minister of India. 5 years is not a long duration and to history it is not worth to an eyelid even. But the same period must be used to influence the Hindu progeny of next 5, 000 years. Hindus can’t afford to lose now.

The first time Narendra Modi publicly entered 7, Race Course Road, Delhi, was on August 18, 2001. He was then based inDelhi as BJP's national general secretaryand was there to launch his biography onLakshmanrao Inamdar, his mentor in RSS. In Setubandh, Modi compared Inamdar, who passed away in 1984, to the mythical bridge Lord Ram built to Sri Lanka. Then PM Atal Bihari Vajpayee burnished his credentials as the first RSS pracharak-turned-PM by paying a glowing tribute to the veteran Sangh worker. Over a decade later, Modi jets across the country, addressing whirlwind rallies, perhaps eager for a chance to thank his mentor again from the Prime Minister's residence.Master and protegeThe Modi narrative is a singular one. The stubborn, strong-willed son of a tea-vendor, Damodardas Modi, from Gujarat's Vadnagar town who, by sheer hard work and dedication, rises through RSS and then, within BJP. A life inspired, you would think, only by bronzeSardar Patel statues and Swami Vivekananda calendar art. The narrativ ...
When people said Mr. Modi is a polarizing figure, I said that it's the case with all the great leaders. Any leader - be he/she a Spiritual giant, a politician or a businessman or even a social activist for that matter - they are all polarizing figures. Look at Buddha, look at Swami Vivekananda, look at Mahatma Gandhi, Subhash Chandra Bose, Bhagat Singh, Anna Hazare etc. What they did? They draw people unto themselves. you can't help it. We may not like polarization but people always rally behind a leader. It has been the history of mankind.
I had a debate with a Brahman, and he said people like Swami Vivekananda (original name Narendra Nath Dutt) was born in a Kaesto (a caste lower than Brahman) family by mistake. He was supposed to be born in a Brahman family. I don't know whether or not the message was conveyed to him by any angel or any demon. I could not finish the list of non-Brahman maestros before he left: Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose, Prof Satyen Bose, Satyajit Roy, Partha Pratim Majumder, Jibananda Dash, Amartya Sen, Master da Surjo Sen, Charan Kobi Mukundo Das, Jagadish Chandra Bose, Dr Bidhan Roy. All men are created equal. We no longer live in the middle age or any other age of discrimination.
No man should be judged by his defects never forget the glory of human nature. Swami Vivekananda

Preface Subhash Chandra Bose was one of India's greatest freedom fighter. He was the founder of the Indian National Army, popularly known as 'Azad Hind Fauj'. Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose had visited London during pre-independence period to discuss the future of India, with the members of the Labor party. His sudden disappearance from Taiwan, led to surfacing of various theories, concerning the possibilities of his survival. Life of Subhash Chandra Bose Subhash Chandra Bose was born on 23 January, 1897 in Cuttack (Orissa) to Janakinath Bose and Prabhavati Devi. Janakinath Bose was one of the successful lawyer in Cuttack and received the title of "Rai Bahadur". He, later became a member of the Bengal Legislative Council. Subhash Chandra Bose was a very intelligent and sincere student but never had much interest in sports. He passed his B.A. in Philosophy from the Presidency College in Calcutta. He was strongly influenced by Swami Vivekananda's teachings and was known for his patriotic zeal as a student. He ...
A comment by Madan Mitra today has shocked me . He described Mamata Banerjee as " reincarnation of Maa Sharadha . " Maa Sharadha was the guiding spirit behind Swami Vivekananda . She is held in the highest esteem by millions of people across the world. Madan Mitra's statement is highly deplorable & shocking . Demand unconditional apology from the TMC leadership and strictest action against Madan Mitra .

Some similarities: Today, finished reading short book on "story of Swami Vivekananda". This reminds me that some behaviors of mine seems to be in line with Vivekananda, i.e. Questioning/trying to find logic for everything. While my wife Vasundhara's behavior seems to be that of Sri Ramakrishna, ie, accept the facts as is ( spiritual thinking and not logical). Moreover, another interesting fact is, I was born on 13Jan ( a day after Vivekananda jayanti) and wife on 18Feb, same day as Sri Ramakrishna jayanti) :-)
