Patel was pro-Hindu, not anti-Muslim sk sadar nayeem BJP’s prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi's appreciation of Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel is part of a specially designed strategy aimed at achieving political objectives. The Sangh Parivar has recast the political discourse on Sardar Patel in order to portray that he practised the 'Hindutva brand of secularism'. To prove this point, BJP and RSS leaders operate cleverly behind the fog of confusion, and this isn't the first time they are doing so. Some years ago, BJP tried to uphold Swami Vivekananda as a 'champion of militant Hinduism' and his messages as the very basis of the Savarkar-Hedgewar-Golwalkar brand of Hindutva. But unlike RSS leaders, Vivekananda lambasted religious bigotry and fanaticism in the name of Hinduism. Sardar Patel's utterances, policies and actions as India's deputy prime minister may be seen as blunt and ruthless, but they were never anti-Muslim. It is true that after partition, he seemed to have become pro-Hindu, having been ...
Great people are those who build highways for others with their heart's blood.

Swami Vivekananda:- Vivekananda (Bengali: [Bibekanɒnɖo] ( listen), Bibekānondo; 12 January 1863 – 4 July 1902), born Narendra Nath Datta (Bengali: [nɔrend̪ro nat̪ʰ d̪ɔt̪t̪o] Norendro Nath Dot-to), was an Indian Hindu monk and chief disciple of the 19th-century saint Ramakrishna. He was a key figure in the introduction of the Indian philosophies of Vedanta and Yoga to the Western world and is credited with raising interfaith awareness, bringing Hinduism to the status of a major world religion during the late 19th century. He was a major force in the revival of Hinduism in India, and contributed to the concept of nationalism in colonial India. Vivekananda founded the Ramakrishna Math and the Ramakrishna Mission. He is perhaps best known for his inspiring speech which began, "Sisters and brothers of America ...," in which he introduced Hinduism at the Parliament of the World's Religions in Chicago in 1893. Born into an aristocratic Bengali family of Calcutta, Vivekananda was incli ...
Fountain at Kanniyakumari Kanyakumari district, which lies in the southern most tip of Peninsular India, is famous for its majestic hills, virgin beaches, pristine rivers and meandering rivulets. The district has a fragrance of architecture culture and customs of neighbouring Kerala mixed with the rich deep traditions, culture and architecture of Tamil Nadu. However, for want of promotional campaign and lack of basic amenities most of the tourists coming to this district return back after seeing just Kanyakumari and Padmanabhapuram Palace.

Vivekananda’s contributions to World Culture Making an objective assessment of Swami Vivekananda’s contributions to world culture, the eminent British historian A L Basham stated that “in centuries to come, he will be remembered as one of the main moulders of the modern world…” Some of the main contributions that Swamiji made to the modern world are mentioned below: 1. New Understanding of Religion: One of the most significant contributions of Swami Vivekananda to the modern world is his interpretation of religion as a universal experience of transcendent Reality, common to all humanity. Swamiji met the challenge of modern science by showing that religion is as scientific as science itself; religion is the ‘science of consciousness’. As such, religion and science are not contradictory to each other but are complementary. This universal conception frees religion from the hold of superstitions, dogmatism, priestcraft and intolerance, and makes religion the highest and noblest pursuit – the p ...

SHRI . ARUN SHOURIE'S BOOK " WORSHIPPING FALSE GODS " - 'There is not one instance, not one single, solitary instance in which Ambedkar participated in any activity connected with that struggle to free the country' Arun Shourie's book 'Woshipping False Gods' The furore following the desecration of Dr Bhim Rao Ambedkar's statue in Bombay has largely been interpreted as the resurgence of the dalit movement in India. A phenomenon which first saw its genesis in the philosophy and personality of Dr B R Ambedkar 50 years ago. In his book, Worshipping False Gods, Arun Shourie challenges Dr Ambedkar's contribution to Indian Independence. The book has already run into controversy and several dalit organisations in Maharashtra want it banned. Ambedkar's public life begins in a sense from a public meeting held at the Damodar Hall in Bombay on March 9, 1924. The struggle for freeing the country from the British was by then in full swing. Swami Vivekananda's work, Sri Aurobindo's work, the Lokmanya's work had already ...

“Let me tell you frankly that I am now convinced that you have a great future in the work for India. What was wanted was not a man, but a woman—a real lioness—to work for Indians, women especially. India cannot yet produce great women; she must borrow them from other nations. Your education, sincerity, purity, immense love, determination and above all, the Celtic blood make you just the woman wanted." Swami Vivekananda could foresee her future role in India and narrated to her the pitiable condition of the women in India. He was a great visionary of India and his thoughts were based on 'look forward' visions. Presently, condition of women is in progress. In comparison, conditions are same in proportionate to the growth of population. To improve upon the condition of women under the British rule, she was chosen for the role of educating Indian women.

"Instead of succumbing to division, you have shown that the strength of India—the very idea of India—is its embrace of all colors, castes and creeds. It’s the diversity represented in this chamber today. It’s the richness of faiths celebrated by a visitor to my hometown of Chicago more than a century ago—the renowned Swami Vivekananda. He said that, “Holiness, purity and charity are not the exclusive possessions of any church in the world, and that every system has produced men and women of the most exalted character." — Barack Obama

What we want are Western science coupled with Vedanta, brahmacharya as the guiding motto, and also shraddha and faith in one's own self. Vedanta says that within man is all knowledge even in a boy it is so and it requires only an awakening, and that much is the work of a teacher. But the root is religion. Religion is as the rice, and everything else, like the curries. Taking only curries causes indigestion, and so is the case with taking rice alone. - Swami Vivekananda
" The present Hindu society is organised only for spiritual men, and hopelessly crushes out everybody else. Why? Where shall they go who want to enjoy the world a little with its frivolities?

This is the slow but sure work to be done. " - Swami Vivekananda

So far we see that it is hard to find any universal features in regard to religion, and yet we know that they exist. We are all human beings, but are we all equal? Certainly not. Who says we are equal? Only the lunatic. Are we all equal in our brains, in our powers, in our bodies? One man is stronger than another, one man has more brain power than another. If we are all equal, why is there this inequality? Who made it? We. Because we have more or less powers, more or less brain, more or less physical strength, it must make a difference between us. Yet we know that the doctrine of equality appeals to our heart. Complete Works of Swami Vivekananda – Vol. II P. 380-381
Lord Rama Lord Rama is known as the seventh incarnation of Lord Vishnu. Rama, the perfect avatar of the Supreme Protector Vishnu, has always been popular among the Hindu deities. Rama is the symbol of courtesy and virtue, a man of values and morals. Ramachandra is Maryada Purushottama, which means the perfect man. Lord Rama is considered to have taken birth on the earth to destroy the evil forces of the age. Lord Rama, in the words of Swami Vivekananda, is "the embodiment of truth, of morality, the ideal son, the ideal husband, and above all, the ideal king". Rama is widely accepted to be an actual historical figure - a "tribal hero of ancient India" - whose deeds form the great Hindu epic of Ramayana or The Romance of Rama, written by the ancient Sanskrit poet Valmiki. According to the Hindus belief, Rama lived in the Treta Yug. Although historians are of the conviction that Rama was not particularly deified until the 11th century AD. Tulsidas' wonderful version of the Sanskrit epic "Ramayana" into "Ramc ...
Impression on ' Swami Vivekananda ' in Chicago . In his deep voice, he began, Sisters and Brothers of America'- and the entire audience, many hundred people, clapped and cheered wildly for two minutes. No doubt the vast majority of those present hardly knew why they had been so powerfully moved. The appearance, even the voice, of Vivekananda cannot fully explain it. A large gathering has its own strange kind of subconscious telepathy, and this one most have been somehow aware that it was in the presence of that most unusual of being, a man whose words express exactly what he is. When Vivekananda said, Sisters and Brothers' he actually meant that he regarded the American women and men before him as sisters and brothers; the well-known orational phrase became simple truth. - By Christopher Isherwood, in What Religion Is in the words of Swami.
"...Our universe is that portion of existence which is characterised by what the Sanskrit psychologists call Desha-kala-nimitta, or what is known to European psychology as space, time, and causation. This universe is only a part of infinite existence, thrown into a peculiar mould, composed of space, time, and causation. It necessarily follows that law is possible only within this conditioned universe; beyond it there cannot be any law. When we speak of the universe, we only mean that portion of existence which is limited by our mind–the universe of the senses, which we can see, feel, touch, hear, think of, imagine. This alone is under law; but beyond it existence cannot be subject to law, because causation does not extend beyond the world of our minds. Anything beyond the range of our mind and our senses is not bound by the law of causation, as there is no mental association of things in the region beyond the senses, and no causation without association of ideas. It is only when “being” or existence ...

The validity of the excerpts from the biography of Swami Vivekananda may be checked ,"Being the foodie he was, he would eat lot of junk food. “I would add chunks of meat in boiling water with some spices and serve a dish to Thakur (Paramahamsa). Whereas, Naren (Vivekananda) would cook varieties of non-vegetarian dishes”, says Sharadadevi in one of her writings. Sister Nivedita has also elaborately documented the culinary skills of Vivekananda, comprising of national and international recipes. The day he died is when the Hilsa fish had entered the Hoogly river; he had got it cooked, had it for lunch and later in the day when he was resting is when he breathed his last that night."
The trend of hiding the truth and teachings of personalities nd promoting biased history books have taken the number of dieties in India to crores. Projecting Swami Vivekananda, a Shudra by birth as a brand ambassador of Hinduism where a Sudra is meant only for serving the upper caste is so opportunistic. How can a non vegeterian Swami be a religious leader of so called vegeterian society. In real terms, he was a true philosopher who seeks to unravel the mystery of nature.
The beggar is never happy. The beggar only gets a dole with pity and scorn behind it, at least with the thought behind that the beggar is a low object. He never really enjoys what he gets. We are all beggars. Whatever we do, we want a return. We are all traders. We are traders in life, we are traders in virtue, we are traders in religion. And ! we are also traders in love. - Swami Vivekananda

Swami Vivekananda said - By whatever path you go, you will have to lose yourself in the One.
We will illustrate love by a triangle, of which the first angle at the base is fearlessness. So long as there is fear, it is not love. Love banishes all fear. A mother with her baby will face a tiger to save her child. The second angle is that love never asks, never begs. The third or the apex is that love loves for the sake of love itself. Even the idea of object vanishes. Love is the only form in which love is loved. This is the highest abstraction and the same as the Absolute. Written during first visit to America, in response to questions put by a Western disciple. The Complete Works of Swami Vivekananda, Part-8. Page-154.
The whole secret of existence is to have no fear. Never fear what will become of you, depend on no one. Only the moment you reject all help are you free. ~ Swami Vivekananda

Once Swami Vivekananda told about Indian culture that when our saints cultured the philosophy and religion, the western were still naked.

Merely theorizing about God will not do. ... Day and night think of God and think of nothing else as far as possible. The daily necessary thoughts can all be thought through God.

Because of its rock-star status, I’ve developed the acronym Y-O-G-A to give you a memorable overview on what this practice entails. “Y” reminds us that the word “yoga” comes from the Sanskrit word “yogah,” which means “to yoke or to unite.” Indeed, the goal of yoga is to uncouple oneself from the material world and to unite oneself with the god of Hinduism, commonly understood to be Brahman, the impersonal cosmic consciousness of the universe. Put another way, yoga is the means by which the user’s mind is merged into the universal mind. “O” represents the Hindu mantra “Om”—a sacred Sanskrit syllable cherished by Hindu yogis as the spoken quintessence of the universe. Repeating such mantras as “Om” over and over is a principalmeans by which yoga practitioners work their way into altered states of consciousness. The objective of achieving an altered state of consciousness is always the same: to dull the critical-thinking process because the mind is seen to be the obstacle t ...
A thought by said swami vivekananda... 'If you do not use today better than yesterday, Then why do you need tomorrow' just think... good morning...
The Vedanta philosophy, as it is generally called at the present day, really comprises all the various sects that now exist in India. Thus there have been various interpretations, and to my mind they have been progressive, beginning with the dualistic or Dvaita and ending with the non-dualistic or Advaita. The word Vedanta literally means the end of the Vedas — the Vedas being the scriptures of the Hindus. Sometimes in the West by the Vedas are meant only the hymns and rituals of the Vedas. But at the present time these parts have almost gone out of use, and usually by the word Vedas in India, the Vedanta is meant. The Vedanta, then, practically forms the scriptures of the Hindus, and all systems of philosophy that are orthodox have to take it as their foundation. All the Vedantists agree on three points. They believe in God, in the Vedas as revealed, and in cycles. All the books contained in the Upanishads have one subject, one task before them — to prove the following theme: "Just as by the knowledg ...

9 October : The day in the life of Swami Daily Free Press dt October 09, 1893 writes about Swami Vivekananda's talk on Hindu civilisation : the India of today was the same India that had watched for centuries the meteoric nations of the world flash across the horizon and sink into oblivion. In common with the people, he loves the past. He lives not for self, but for God. In his country a premium is placed on beggary and tramps. When the meal is prepared, they wait for some man to come along who is first served, then the animals, the servants, the man of the house and lastly the woman of the household. Boys are taken at 10 years of age and are kept by professors for a period of ten to twenty years, educated and sent forth to resume their former occupations or to engage in a life of endless wandering, preaching, and praying, taking along only that which is given them to eat and wear, but never touching money. Vivekananda is of the latter class. Men approaching old age withdraw from the world, and after a pe ...

We must also note that the author has quoted the views of Dr. Babasaheb Ambedkar, Mahatma Gandhi, Ramkrishna Paramhans, Swami Vivekananda and other thinkers which are compiled by Rana Pratap Roy which AJN 139 support him. We must also state that several other Ayats were referred to by Counsel which are also strongly worded against idolators. But then two views are always possible of every Ayat. The Supreme Court has cautioned us not to import our views while dealing with scriptures. (Shri Krishna Singh v. Mathura Ahir & Ors. (1981) 3 SCC 689). The Calcutta High Court has taken a similar view (Aga Mahomed Jaffer Bindanim v. Koolsom Beebee & Ors. (1898) ILR XXV Cal.9). We, therefore, do not want to import our own views. But, in the ultimate analysis, we feel that several view points are in the field about Islam as there are about other religions and we cannot st ...

BJP Government Watch (BGW) Alert BAL THACKERAY AND HIS BOYS ‘PROTECT HINDUS’! S. P. Udayakumar August 10, 1998 The Justice B. N. Srikrishna Commission that investigated the two phases of communal riots in Mumbai (Bombay) in December 1992 and January 1993, and the serial blasts on March 12, 1993 has unequivocally blamed, among others, the ‘Hindu’ communal outfit Shiv Sena, and its leader Bal Thackeray, a professed admirer of Hitler. However, Manohar Joshi, the Chief Minister of the Shiv Sena-BJP coalition government in the state of Maharashtra, has summarily rejected the findings of the Srikrishna Commission as it is “anti-Hindu, pro-Muslim and biased.” He feels obliged “to protect Hindus.” Following the Sangh Parivar’s demolition of the Babri Masjid in December 1992, the Hindi/Urdu heartland and some of the adjacent states witnessed massive communal riots and carnage. This worst communal violence since the partition of the country in 1947 took a heavy toll of almost 2,000 lives and nea . ...

All developing societies invariably have to face revolt from the oppressed and constrained classes- england, us, france, russia, china. india did not, because social division was never discriminatory and always flexible from all scientific accounts- as i have already mentioned. and all great developments happen in stable, harmonious and peaceful conditions. moreover, there were no ANTI- caste reformers in pre- british history. Swami Vivekananda: "Did India ever stand in want of reformers? Do you read the history of India? Who was Ramanuja? Who was Shankara? Who was Nânak? Who was Chaitanya? Who was Kabir? Who was Dâdu? Who were all these great preachers, one following the other, a galaxy of stars of the first magnitude? Did not Ramanuja feel for the lower classes? Did he not try all his life to admit even the Pariah to his community? Did he not try to admit even Mohammedans to his own fold? Did not Nanak confer with Hindus and Mohammedans, and try to bring about a new state of things? They all tried, an ...

Relationship between Ramakrishna and Swami Vivekananda The relationship between Ramakrishna and Swami Vivekananda began in November 1891 when they met at the house of Surendra Nath Mitra. Ramakrishna asked Narendranath (the pre-monastic name of Swami Vivekananda) to sing. Impressed by his singing talent, he invited him to Dakshineswar. Narendra accepted the invitation and went to Dakshinewsar to meet Ramakrishna. The meeting proved to be a turning point in the life of Narendranath. Initially Narendra did not accept Ramakrishna as his master and found him "mono maniac", but eventually he became one of closest persons' of his life. Ramakrishna reportedly shaped the personality of Narendranath and prepared him to dedicate his life to serve the humanity. After the death of Ramakrishna, Narendra and his other monastic disciples established their first monastery at Baranagar. The message of Advaita Vedanta philosophy, the Hinduism tenet, inspired by Ramakrishna, the nineteenth century doyen of revival of Hindui ...

Baba Ramdev's PASSPORT STAMPED WITH INVISIBLE RED ALERT NOTIFICATION BY INDIAN IMMIGRATION AUTHORITY Heathrow immigration indicate that there was an invisible notation in Baba Ramdev's passport, visible only by computer scanners, It is this which prompted a RED ALERT ALARM Apparently, such red alerts signify terror alert or a drug warlord. This what led to his eight hour detention at LONDON HEATHROW AIRPORT. On arrival he was asked to report to the authorities the following day at 2 pm, exactly when Swami Vivekananda's 150th anniversary conference was scheduled to commence. A decision had been evidently taken to deport him on a 3.15pm Air India flight back to India.

SWAMI RAMDEV IN NEW JERSEY THIS WEEKEND: SPIRITUAL TEACHER OR REACTIONARY COUNTERFEIT? Bill Courson India’s influential Swami Baba Ramdev is presently visiting the United States in commemoration of the 150th anniversary of the birth of Swami Vivekananda and the 120th anniversary of his address to Chicago’s World Parliament of Religions in 1893. (Vivekananda was the founder of the Ramakrishna monastic order and disciple of Ramakrishna Paramahamsa.) The Swami, whose influence in India and around the world is vast and whose business empire spans the globe, claims to be an enlightened proponent of ancient Hindu healing techniques like yoga and ayurveda, Ramdev commands a massive following in India, claiming over 2 million followers (including several key politicians and celebrities) and presiding over televised "yoga camps" that attract over 20,000 participants and who two television networks serve millions of viewers. The West's recent interest in yoga notwithstanding, Baba Ramdev is widely credited with ...

Belūr Maṭh or Belur Mutt is the headquarters of the Ramakrishna Math and Mission, founded by Swami Vivekananda, a chief disciple of Ramakrishna Paramahamsa
“I am a disciple of Ramakrishna Paramahamsa, a perfect sannyāsin whose influence and ideas I fell under. This great sannyāsin never assumed the negative or critical attitude towards other religions, but showed their positive side-how they could be carried into life and practiced. To fight, to assume the antagonistic attitude, is the exact contrary of his teaching, which dwells on the truth that the world is moved by love.” - Swami Vivekananda
Goddess Kali’s First Appearance To Swami Vivekananda By Thokchom Shiba Dutta Singh Though Narendranath Datta, in short Naren who was offered monastic name Swami Vivekananda by Maharaj Ajit Singh of Khetri ( Rajasthan) on the eve of his departure for America in May, 1893 ( his earlier monstic name was Satchidananda, he himself never wrote the word Swami before his name), was the foremost disciple of Sri Ramkrishna Paramahamsa with whom Goddess Kali was in state of being one, denied Goddess Kali at the beginning. He was then eighteen when he began to be the disciple of the Great Master in 1881. He strongly disliked Kali and her form though Sri Ramkrishna told to him "Before long you will not only accept my blessed Mother Kali, but weep while repeating her name". His dislike continued till he met the Goddess in a wonderful way. After the sudden death of his attorney father from heart failure in February 1884, Naren's family, though earlier very well-to-do, became very poor. There were neither earning membe ...

Swami Vivekananda’s Sangalpam at Kanyakumari Between the years 1890-1893, as a Parivrajaka (Wandering monk), Swami Vivekananda travelled all over India. He left the ‘Ghostly’ Baranagar Math (This dilapidated building served as the first building of Ramakrishna Math) in July 1890 and travelled to Uttar Pradesh, Rajasthan, Gujarat, Maharashtra, Karnataka, Hyderabad, Kerala and Tamil Nadu. During this period, he acquired an intimate knowledge of the life of the toiling masses. It strengthened his bond with and feelings for the people of India. Swami Vivekananda reached Kanyakumari on 25th December 1892. Swamiji wished to go to the last bit of Indian rock mass amidst the sea. He dared the high seas and reached the rock swimming!! From 25th to 27th Dec 1892, for three days, he meditated without any food or water. It was during this time he resolved to work for the people of India, who lead a miserable life due to poverty, ignorance, illiteracy, sickness, cultural degeneration. Seeing the country from the ...
Influence of Bengali Classic Literature on Bollywood Films Bengal in the eighteenth and nineteenth century had produced intellectuals of different dimensions in different fields including academics, politics, music, literature, social science, etc. Social reformers like Raja Ram Mohan Roy, Vidhyasagar brought social awakening through the prohibition of evil practices like Sati and bringing modern legislations with the help of the British Government in the colonial era like Widow Remarriage Act. In the field of religion Swami Vivekananda redefined Hinduism in his Chicago Conference in USA and provided the deliberations of Sri Ramakrisha in condemning materialist philosophy. Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose was one of the most dynamic personalities of the freedom struggle movement of India. Literature is a field where the immortal works of the Bengali Legendary thinkers have influenced the silver screen the most which even has significance after around 50 years of creation of the classic works.

Swami Vivekananda on 'Eternal Recurrence' (Once 'Friedrich Nietzsche' himself calls the idea "horrifying and paralyzing") _ In one sense bodies and forms even are eternal. How? Suppose we take a number of dice and throw them, and they fall in this ratio — 6 — 5 — 3 — 4 —1 —2. We take the dice up and throw them again and again; there must be a time when the same numbers will come again; the same combination must come. Now each particle, each atom, that is in this universe, I take for such a die, and these are being thrown out and combined again and again. All these forms before you are one combination. Here are the forms of a glass, a table, a pitcher of water, and so forth. This is one combination; in time, it will all break. But there must come a time when exactly the same combination comes again, when you will be here, and this form will be here, this subject will be talked, and this pitcher will be here. An infinite number of times this has been, and an infinite number of times this will b ...

SASHI i asked a Q on Vivekananda, your comment on him. NO response prove report to b right. U abused Swami Vivekananda
Go on doing good, thinking holy thoughts continuously, that is the only way to suppress base impressions. Never say any man is hopeless, because he only represents a character, a bundle of habits, which can be checked by new and better ones. Character is repeated habits, and repeated habits alone can reform character. -Swami Vivekananda
The end of all religions is the realizing of God in the soul. That is the one universal religion. If there is one universal truth in all religions, I place it here--in realizing God. Ideals and methods may differ, but God-realization is the central point. There may be a thousand radii but they all converge to the once center, and that is the realization of God. - Swami Vivekananda

TRYING TO RENAME HISTORICAL SITE AGAIN The 1st question I wan to ask to all the community,caste,politicians and my friends . Is this how we payback to our ancestors and great forefathers who left us some reason to be proud of by erasing their great creations and contributions.? Is this how we show respect to them who gave shelter to the homeless and enough power to structer thier lives back in time ? 1st Tried to rename Agartala Airport, Then Astabal ground,which is already renamed to swami vivekananda stadium. N now Ujjayanta Palace. All of this a part of Tripura's golden History and the great Royal contribution which can never be ignored and erased. So what HINT do you all get from this political activity of our so called supreme leaders.?? Is this restoring a culture,priceless History or is it Erasing ? I am damm sure in the next coming year this things will be reapeted again. Who knows tomorrow again they decide to change NIRMAHAL to Kazi Nazrul Mahal or MBB college to Agartala city college.

The Best sentence by Swami Vivekananda. "Take Risks In Your Life." "If you Win, you can Lead.!" "If you Loose, you can Guide.!"
What is the meaning of life ? "Life itself has no meaning, LIFE is an OPPORTUNITY to Create a meaning" --…
The trouble with we the ordinary folks is that, we don't seek God.we seek from God & in return , we worship...we perform puja. Puja means the rite or ritual through which the fruits of our enjoyment is born. So our worship of God is basically with a selfish motive, driven either by our desire for enjoyment or by our fear of an uncertain future -which we want to allay . Where is the element of LOVE FOR GOD in all these rituals ? We select/ vote for the MAYOR & his team of the Municipality /CORPORATION or any CIVIC BODY, on the basis of our expectation as to who is going to deliver the maximum civic amenities & facilities to the citizenry. Same is true with our expectation and level of BHAKTI (devotion ) for and from different deities. So what an unparalleled analogy drawn by SWAMI VIVEKANANDA by pointedly raising a finger at our spiritual darkness and our perception of GOD ,whom we have equated with a MUNICIPAL AUTHORITY .

He, the Lord knows best. Let ignorant men talk nonsense. The petty attempts of small men should be beneath our notice. Truth is indestructible, virtue is indestructible, purity is indestructible. Trust in the Lord and you are on the right track; nothing can prevail against you. - Swami Vivekananda
[Talking to an American audience] I should very much like our women to have your intellectuality, but not if it must be at the cost of purity. I admire you for all that you know, but I dislike the way that you cover what is bad with roses and call it good. Intellectuality is not the highest good. Morality and spirituality are the things for which we strive. Our women are not so learned, but they are more pure. -SWAMI VIVEKANANDA.

The greatest religion is to be true to your own nature. Have faith in yourselves. . ~ Swami Vivekananda
In the world take always the position of the giver. Give everything and look for no return. Give love, give help, give service, give any little thing you can, but keep out barter. Make no conditions and none will be imposed on you. Let us give out of our own bounty, just as God gives to us. - Swami Vivekananda
What we want is vigour in the blood, strength in the nerves, iron muscles and nerves of steel, not softening namby-pamby words. - Swami Vivekananda
Today God is being abandoned by the world because he does not seem to be doing enough for the world. So they say, "Of what good is he?" Shall we look upon God as a mere municipal authority? - Swami Vivekananda

V ON THE THRESHOLD For a long time yet, we have to play the double game. It must not be thought that even when one has overcome Tamas and acquired fineness of perception or has become unselfish and service-full, it is possible to give up all worldly quests and devote oneself solely to a religious life. Alas, alas, it is too difficult a life to be so easily accessible. A serious practice of religion must in most cases be begun together with a worldly life. That is to say, we must not give up external activities all of a sudden. The mind will stubbornly refuse to embrace religion at once and completely. So it is necessary to wean the mind gradually from its accustomed conditions. On the threshold of religious life, we have to be very careful about two points: (1) whether our desire for religion is genuine or only a 'false hunger'; and (2) whether we shall be able to continue our pursuit of religion with unfaltering enthusiasm to the last. The desire for religion can be conveniently called Vairâgya (literal ...
INTRODUCTION When, first the beauty of spiritual life dawns on our vision, our reaction to it is pre-eminently emotional. We then lack understanding, we do not know the bearings of the path that leads to the spiritual goal - we are moved by an impulse. But very soon we feel the want of clear knowledge. Doubts assail us and we yearn to know the why and the wherefore of things. He who writes these words was one who felt the same need. He remembers the days of his difficulties, and believes that if he undertakes a discussion of the preliminary stages and conditions of practical religion, he will be doing a service, however meager and imperfect it may be. The writer wishes it to be clearly understood that in all he has said I the following pages, he lays no claim to infallibility. He has written as he has understood. And he has communicated his knowledge even as a traveler speaks of his experiences of the way - however ill-perceived and ill-conceived - to others traveling along the same path. He claims nothin ...
Blame neither man, nor God, nor anyone in the world. When you find yourselves suffering, blame yourselves, and try to do better. - Swami Vivekananda
Nice quotes! Strength is life weakness is death by Swami Vivekananda which covers everything including corporate life
“Do one thing at a Time, and while doing it put your whole Soul into it to the exclusion of all else,”- Swami Vivekananda
They may laugh at one another, but each one has a place in this world. All these various minds, all these various types are necessary. If there ever is going to be an ideal religion, it must be broad and large enough to supply food for all these minds. It must supply the strength of philosophy to the philosopher, the devotee's heart to the worshipper; to the ritualist, it will give all that the most marvellous symbolism can convey; to the poet, it will give as much of heart as he can take in, and other things besides. To make such a broad religion, we shall have to go back to the time when religions began and take them all in. Complete Works of Swami Vivekananda – Vol. II P.

Strength is life ,weakness is death - Swami Vivekananda
India faced more than 35 thousand communal riots since Independence. Still we are a country with secular strength, which is safeguarding us. The strength behind secularism is the masses which is trained by Saints, Sufis, Sharanas, Dasas and mystical poets. Most of the Dalits, Backwards and Minority people are naturally secular. I have so many Brahman friends who are ardent supporters of secularism. In India people are naturally secular. But Italy and German Fascist Philosophy lovers trying to make them consciously communal. But I know, majority of the poor people of India never go wrong since they are so much influenced by the humanitarian Bhakti Panth Movement. No Terrorist in the name Islam and No communalist in the name Hindutva are able to change their humane qualities. Just only few may be influenced by their inhuman teachings. O Muslims of India, you are safe because of Secular Hindus. You should force your Ulemas, Mullas and other Religious and Political leaders to have a dialogue with Secular pe . ...
It is in love that religion exists and not in ceremony, in the pure and sincere love in the heart. Unless a man is pure in body and mind, his coming into a temple and worshipping Shiva is useless. The prayers of those that are pure in mind and body will be answered by Shiva, and those that are impure and yet try to teach religion to others will fail in the end. External worship is only a symbol of internal worship; but internal worship and purity are the real things. Without them, external worship would be of no avail. Therefore you must all try to remember this. ~ Swami Vivekananda

We have enjoyed the euphoria of BJP's declaration of Modi's candidature for Prime Ministership of India. Now it is time to channelize that euphoria in action. I suggest five practical ways: 1. Integration of all Groups and Pages which have more than 25,000 members under a competent person appointed by Modiji. 2. Facilitating One minute Hand shaking meetings with Modiji for all such admins who have 25,000 members. 3. Arranging weekly meetings of volunteers for Modiji in villages and blocks. 4. Setting groups committed for Voter registration. 5. Providing video tapes of Modiji's life and speeches for different groups. Please freely offer your comments and advices for the overwhelming victory of Modiji in coming elections. And let us not forget we are not supporting Modiji for Modiji's sake, but for the sake of Sanatan Dharma and Bharat Mata to materialize the Dream of Maharshi Dayananda, Swami Vivekananda and Yogi Arvind.

The less passion there is, the better we work. The calmer we are, the better for us and the more the amount of work we can do. When we let loose our feelings, we waste so much energy, shatter our nerves, disturb our minds, and accomplish very little - Swami Vivekananda
"When u look at unchanging existence from the outside,u call it God;when u look at it from the inside,yourself.It's but 1."Swami Vivekananda
Universal Peace Through Dharma and Yoga. Celebrating the 150th anniversary of Swami Vivekananda | Festivals and Shows ,
Question: My dear friend is, indeed, in spiritual life for he does everything a so-called spiritual person does in terms of his diet, sadhana (=spiritual practice), tapas (=austerities), swadheya (=reading spiritual books) and even conduct. But what I cannot comprehend is his ego. Is it possible for a spiritual person, whose life is concentrated on effacing ego, is full of ego. Somewhat contradictory, I feel. "The ordinary ego of a businessman or politician you can understand. Have you ever heard them say that they have no ego? No. But who does say that he has no ego? A spiritual man does! 'I am a great jivanmukta!' To say, 'I am a spiritual person, a holy man,' is the WORST form of egoism you will encounter. Lord Krishna says in the Gita that one who says, 'I am, great, I am holy, I am wise, I am a God-realised soul' is bound. What binds more, an iron chain or a gold chain? one is so much more beautiful and attractive, but still they both bind in the same way." (pg. 127, Vishnudevananda Upadesa). Note: S ...
“Our watchword, then, will be acceptance, and not exclusion. Not only toleration, for so-called toleration is often blasphemy, and I do not believe in it. I believe in acceptance...Why should I tolerate? Toleration means that I think that you are wrong and I am just allowing you to live. Is it not blas- phemy to think that you and I are allowing others to live." - Swami Vivekananda
"What you call a majority consists mainly of fools." -Swami Vivekananda.
Your spirit, my spirit, all spirits are fragments of the universal spirit.~Swami Vivekananda
It would be an honour to address a gathering on 22 September 2013, at Island grounds, Chennai, on the occasion of All India Forward Bloc 17 Party Congress. This is a historic venue as Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose had addressed a mammoth rally in September 1939. Chennai is the place where one of the tallest leaders of All India Forward Bloc hailed from- Revered Muthuralingam Thevar. The Bose family pays homage to him. The time has come to spread Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose's ideology- Indian way of Socialism based on the heritage & culture of Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose - All Power to the Indian People to save India from foreign influence. Let us build India on the principles of Swami Vivekananda, Rabindranath Tagore & Subhas Chandra Bose. Jai Hind!
Have faith in yourselves, great convictions are the mothers of great deeds. ~ Swami Vivekananda
Swami Vivekananda’s solution for PEACE OF MIND Once a youngster named Gopal Lal said to Swami Vivekananda: I close the doors of my room, sit inside and try to meditate, but could not get peace of mind. Please offer some solution to my problem. Swamiji replied: First, open the doors of your room; Come out; Look around. There are hundreds of poor men, needy and orphans living around you. They are poverty-stricken and they live in deep sorrow; Serve them. Help get medication for the sick; Provide knowledge/education to the ignorant. If you want peace of mind, SERVE THE NEEDY to the best possible extent. Nara Seva is Narayan Seva!! Service to mankind is service to God. The youngster thanked Swami Vivekananda for the solution.

Still Only Talks behind Now Indian government has decided to take appropriate and strict steps to control the current account deficit and there are some steps including Bane all upcoming vacancies for government jobs But nobody's speaks to protest against this shameful decision of government this is not a big issue my question is very simple Is the youth of India is responsible for current account budget deficit ? OR Indian government mismanagement is responsible? OR Is this a pre planed and well adjudged scheme to provided assistance in hiring to corporate world and MNC to cheep labour? Yes I must say If this government is really interested to control the budget deficit then first of all I want to suggest them to please bring it up all black money in India and put them all those ministers into jail who are investing money in MNC and allowing them to robbed our valuable natural resources the central ministers working like agents of MNC and swis banks. If we are still failed to a strong protest against th ...

Swami Vivekananda said: "Never talk about the faults of others, no matter how bad they may be. Nothing is ever gained by that.

Hence, dear Sai Bandhus, let us stop the blame game and concentrate on achieving our goals...Jai Sai.

Women in Hindu Religious Thought To understand the position of women in Hinduism, one must understand the true essence of Hindu scriptures and be able to discriminate between what is religious philosophy versus what was merely social philosophy in the ancient times. The social philosophy varies with time, but the religious ideals do not. This point is critical since Hinduism has a large number of scriptures and lack of right understanding as to their content and hierarchy can result in distortion of the Hindu religious tradition. Hindu scriptures re generally classified into two categories: Sruti (primary scriptures) and Smriti (secondary scriptures). Sruti in Sanskrit means “that which is heard.” Thus the Sruti scriptures are the eternal truths that the Vedic seers, called rishis, are said to have heard in their deep meditations. These scriptures are not considered the works of the human mind, but an expression of what has been realized through intuitive perception. This category includes Vedas ...
