Swami Vivekananda Jayanti: Today is Swami Vivekananda Jayanti. Swami Vivekananda, the inspiration of youth, was born on January 12, 1863 in the then Calcutta. His father Vishwanath Dutt was a lawyer by profession and wanted to make Swamiji also an English man. However, Mata Bhuvaneshwari Devi was a cult follower of Sanatan Dharma. Therefore his mother’s influence on Swamiji was more. With the grace and blessings of the mother, Swamiji had affection and attachment to God since childhood. Later on, following the words and footsteps of Guru Paramhans Maharaj, Swamiji propagated Sanatan Dharma. Also did human service. His ideas are relevant even today. Especially showing the way of life to the youth. Come, know the priceless thoughts of Swamiji-

1.

Purity, patience and perseverance are all three essentials for success, but above all is love.

2.

I am proud to belong to a religion that has taught the world the lessons of tolerance and universal acceptance. We do not only believe in universal tolerance, but we accept all the religions of the world as truth.

3.

No one can teach you, no one can make you spiritual. You have to learn everything from within yourself. There is no better teacher than the soul. There is no other spiritual master other than your own soul.

4.

Don’t criticize anyone. If you can extend a helping hand, do extend it. If you can’t, join your hands, bless your brothers, and let them go their way.

5.

The greatest sin in the world is weakness. We should remove every kind of weakness or infirmity. Weakness is sin, weakness is like death.

6.

One does not become religious by repeatedly chanting the name of God. A person who does the right thing is a religious person.

7.

Everything seems easy when you are busy but nothing seems easy when you are lazy.

8.

If money helps to do good to others, it has some value, otherwise, it is just a heap of evil, and the sooner it gets rid of the better.

9.

Don’t change your dreams because of your circumstances. Rather, you should change your circumstances according to your dreams.

10.

Too much comfort and too much love make a person handicapped.
