Swami Vivekananda
1863-1902

Swami Vivekananda, possibly the most masterful personality of modern India, "came, saw and conquered." He lit the torch of resurgent
Hinduism, Sanatana Dharma, particularly the Vedanta philosophy, in far-off America. He preached the gospel of his Guru. Ramakrishna Paramahamsa all over India, and the world, reviving the faith of mankind in religion. With his superb oratorical flair, he advocated the spread of "man-making" education and was an untiring crusader of purity of life and character. He founded the Ramakrishna Math and Mission, perhaps the most wide-spread voluntary non-official socio-religious organization in the world.

When swamiji's father died he left nothing for the family to survive so Narendra (swamiji) had to look for the job to raise the family, but he was not able to find the job even after trying very hard so he went to himalayas for getting ultimate peace.

It's very good to inspire people who build nation.

When Swamiji first met his guru Shri Shri Ramakrishna Parmahansa he asked him a question which he used to ask whenever he meets any saint,Question was HAVE U EVER SEEN GOD,he never received any satisfactory answer. Until he met Ramakrishna Paramahansa who answered saying- YES I see him as I see you. This was the turning point in the life of SWAMIJI, from this moment onwards he realised that he has met a true saint and he became his follower.
Nipun Sharma
When Shri Shri Ramakrishna Parmahansa first met Swamiji he came to know that he is the blessed soul. When swamiji attained the status of Nirvikalp Samadhi, he wanted to be liberated from his body but at that time Ramakrishna Parmahansa told him that key to your liberation is with me and this lock will open only when your purpose of coming to this world is achieved
sakthi
Swamiji being the gospel of sri Paramahamsar drank the saliva of guru when the guru was affected by a serious disease. This shows that he was not only a best student but also a lovable personality with great humanity.
bhaskar
There can't be any better personality and inspiration better then swamiji in this universe. He taught us how to live in life.
deepthi
This page is so inspiring....... Some information about swamiji: During his days as Parivrajaka, swamiji met Pavahari baba who is called as the "Father who subsists on air". He was the Master of Hatha yoga & Raja yoga. Swamiji was interested in learning Hatha Yoga but his thoughts about his beloved master stoped him from learning........... i feel very proud to write something about such a great personality.
Aruj Shah
When Swami Vivekananda finished his speech at U.S.A. he got a standing ovation.
shreya alpeshkumar panchal
When swamiji was a young boy, he was very kind hearted. There is one incident I know about swamiji's childhood that is , Once from the school they had a picnic programme to Delhi, to see the Red Fort. Their teachers made some 6 groups of boys and girls, among one of the group some student's accompanied swamiji. But after walking some distance one of the student fell down because of his illness. All the other 5 students left that boy behind. But then swamiji felt pity of that boy, and at that time the boy was very much serious. Then swamiji took him to the hospital by himself. Then he also called his parents and also that boy's parents and all family members. Thus in this way he saved the life of that boy. And also the doctor said that if this boy was a minute late he would have died. So, this was the great glory of Swamiji. Swamiji's name of childhood was "NARENDRA", and afterwards he came to be known as "SWAMI VIVEKANANDA "
ashish srivastava
Swami Vivekananda told us "be bold, take the whole responsibilities of world on your shoulder and know that you are creator of your destiny". All successful persons follow and worship him.
mannu
He was a great personalty and I want to get the link of his books
Sudhir Kumar
Swami Vivekananda said a very important thing that our country - undivided India is our mother. We have to worship him and do care for our motherland.
ankit mathur(saharanpur)
Vivekananda was a staunch follower of Rama Krishna. His real name was Narendra Dutt. He was born in a Kayastha family on 12th January, 1863 and he was the sixth child to his parents. He studied in the Presidency College. In 1882, he found Sri Ramakrishna at Dakshineswar and accepted him as his "Guru". Sitting on the rocks in Kanya Kumari, the southern tip of Peninsula India, he visualized a solution for the suffering of the masses. He did not like the myths and superstitions with which the religion is generally associated. Under the able guidance of his guru he began to believe in God as the totality of all souls. He advised people to practice religion through complete devotion to men and not through ascetism and meditation. He strengthened the spiritual legacy of India in the 19th century. He never hesitated to condemn evils like casteism, but his pride in the philosophy of Hinduism combined with his catholicity of views turned the Parliament of Religions in 1893 into a historical event. He exhorted the nation to "Arise, Awake and stop not till the goal is reached". On 1st May, he established the Ramakrishna Mission and the following year the Belur Math.
satyanarayan Pathi
Very useful
Krishnakumar
Who was known as the Bengal Tiger?
chellamani
Swamiji had unbelievable memory and concentration. He could read books of 300/500 pages in a day and remember everything for years thereafter. All this is the outcome of ultimate mastery over yogas and total purity of thought and action.
rashmi
PLEASE tell me about ' RAMAKRISHNA MISSION OF ENGLISH " & procedure to admit into it. It will great if you provide me the information regarding postal coaching system of your mission.

IRENE PAULSON
It's superb.
sonal
He was such a great person I would definitely like to know more about him.
Dheeraj Sharma
Swami Vivekanand ji- I read his thoughts like "swami vivekanand ki wani". This small book is very very motivated book. One thought is "India needs muscles of iron & nerves of steel & a heart made from difficulty."
gaurav srivastava
Swamiji was a person whose whole life is full of learning for us, he was a kind of person who still remains in our heart and will be there till the end of life. Blessed are those who in their life can see Swamiji and we too are blessed as still we can read his work.
Viji Alexander
Appreciated, really its a wonderful and very very useful site for the age who can read and understand. Congratulations!!!
manish kumar singh
Self confidence was part of his life.
rajiv singh
Sir, In World Parliament of Religion at Chicago (USA), in the year 1883,when Swami Vivekananda addressed the people - "BROTHERS AND SISTERS OF AMERICA", there was continuous clapping for five minutes. He wanted to convey the message of universal brotherhood. In the end of his speech,he inspired the mankind by saying- " ARISE ,AWAKE AND STOP NOT TILL THE GOAL IS REACHED."
Anshuman Mitra
I wish we had a few leaders like Swamiji. Then the picture of the nation would have been totally different.
HIMANSHU PATEL
Sir, for me swamiji was the one from whom I could get guidance. For the new generation he is a role model. He was a scientist[science of yoga], a patriot, a leader and above all a great soul .His each word was like a true gem. Before he died he told his followers "Wait and Meditate till I call you". He was an all-rounder.
Vikash
We know that he came from that ineffable, supernal region which has no need of the sun or moon, for it is illuminated by the light of lights .
shitiz
Swamiji's message to the Indian Youth Take care. Beware of everything that is untrue; stick to the truth and we shall succeed, may be slowly but surely. Have the fire and spread it all over. I feel extremely painful to see you leading the life of inaction. Set yourself to work. The time of the death is approaching day by day. Do not sit idle thinking that everything will be done in the time later. Remember nothing will be achieved that way.
anshu
Swami vivekannad was an inspiring saint of Bharat. He said,"Neither money pays nor name nor fame nor learning, it is only character that can climb through adamantine walls of difficulties."
tina

Swamiji said, Strength is Life and Weakness is Death.
s.p.vinayak
I have learnt a lot from this great man.
S K Nayak
He is the Light in Darkness for Mankind.
Pritam Thakur
Once Swamiji said in his Parliament lecture: "Come up you lions, shake up the delusion that you are sheeps, you are souls, immortal, spirits free, blest and eternal, you are not matter, you are not body, matter is your servant, nor you the servant of matter.
Aravind Reddy K
Awake. Arise stop not till you reach your goal.

Swamiji was a great person of India.
suchay
Sri Ramakrishnas gospel can be read from WWW.belur.org...go into that site and in search for "GOSPEL OF SRI RAMAKRISHNA" which is very important book for each&every person.There are many answers by Sri Ramakrishna for the problems which we face in our daily life.Even Swamijis forst meetings with sri ramakrishna are also there in that book."GOSPEL OF SRI RAMAKRISHNA" is "BHAGAWATHGEETHJA OF KALIYUGA" because Sri Ramakrishna was none other than RAMA&KRISHNA.Swami Vivekananda said that Sri ramakrishna is Avatara varishta which means the geatest of all the avatars till now.Every follower of ramakrishna is experiencing the great change in his mind&heart as the days are progressing.By following Ramakrishnas&vivekanandas footsteps one will develop spiritually day by day and reach the highest stage in spirituality i,e NIRVIKALPA SAMADHI.For all the development of any follower of Sri Ramakrishna&swamiji the base is "GOSPEL OF SRI RAMAKRISHNA" or "SRI RAMAKRISHNA KATHAMRITA{telugu}"
S.S.REGE.
Rebel sanyasi would be ideal way to describe Swamiji. In a short life span of 39 years he revived & revitalised the Hindu religion in a way no one had done before. As Lokmanya Tilak observed in the obiturial address Swamiji was next only to Adi shankara as a great Hindu spiritual Leader. His interpretation that salvation of Hindu sanatan dharma lies only in sacrifice & service for the downtrodden mark him a unique reformer of all times.
sridhar
Saintly warrior who wanted to drive away the evil of slavery from the Land of Bharath. He loved Mother Land exactly as Lord Rama had loved His kingdom Ayodhya. Though, Swamiji was a renunciate, he had the vision of a king who wanted all his subjects even unto to a paraih to be well educated and cultured.
subhash kuamr t n
One of swamiji's best words.. fear not! The greatest sin is fear. if you are in fear, you are nobody. Great things can be done only through great sacrifices.
sreekanth
I have grown in life reading swami's philosophy. He was a blessed soul and his ideas inspire me most. His message for the youth and his words ring magic for me whenever I feel Iam down and out. We should try to put his words into action and build a modern India as per his dreams.
Remesh
Vivekananda has told that he will come again to earth time to time. Hopefully, all of you have read the life history of Sri. Aurobindo. The turning point in his life was when he was in jail. Swamiji gave him darshan during a meditaion and guided him in yoga and meditation. And, Sri. Aurobindo became a great yogi after this !
Amit
I feel it was only swamiji who encouraged the people to listen to see & to hear only truth. I dont have those great words to define him.
girish
It is hard to believe such a man lived. I respect that great personality
Vijayalakshmi PC
I am confident that Swami Vivekananda first seeded and motivated the younger generation in the world for personality development. Due to his admirable thinking today in the world we can see many great personalities who reached their height in life in all their walks of life.
P.C.Vijayalakshmi
I am confident that Swami Vivekananda a great thinker who motivated by his speech and writings made many great personalities in the world in their walks of life to reach the heights in their life. Swami Vivekananda had only sown the seed of personality development first in the world by his great thinking. All are indebted to him.
CHETAN GABHANE
Swami Vivekananda was a great gift given by GOD to younger generation. I have to read his autobiography.

sangita gandhi
Swamiji's speeches have inspired me and encouraged me to show the right path to our youth, so that they can contribute in the nation's building.
Harish
Swamiji is gold for us.
Manik Sarkar
Vivekananda was a renowned thinker in his own right. One of his most important contributions was to demonstrate how Advait in thinking is not merely philosophically far-reaching, but how it also has social, even political, consequences. One important lesson he claimed to receive from Ramakrishna was that "Jiva is Shiva " (each individual is divinity itself). This became his Mantra, and he coined the concept of daridra narayana seva - the service of God in and through (poor) human beings.
nitin garg
He is a great man. no man ever compare to him.
Manik Sarkar
Swamiji lives in our heart.

Swami vivekanandji was a true saint. He was not an ordinary personality. He had respect for all the religions.

The Swami's mission was both national and international. A lover of mankind, he strove to promote peace and human brotherhood on the spiritual foundation of the Vedantic Oneness of existence. A mystic of the highest order, Vivekananda had a direct and intuitive experience of Reality. He derived his ideas from that unfailing source of wisdom and often presented them in the soul stirring language of poetry.

The name 'vivekanda' was given to swamiji by the maharaja of khezdi(rajasthan) because his earlier name "VIVISHANDA" was to difficult to say and remember.
Manish Sharma
Swamiji was a great personality. His real name was 'Vividishanand'. 'But the Maharja of Khetri' Raja Ajit Singhji [Swami's friend] felt difficult to pronounce his name, so he gave him this world famous name-'Vivekanand'.

SWAMI VIVEKANANDA WAS REALLY A LEGEND. HE IS A ROLE MODEL FOR PEOPLE ALL OVER THE WORLD AND WILL BE FOR MANY MORE EVEN AFTER THE THOUSANDS OF YEARS.
Mrs Mandira Kar
Swamiji's message for the youth "Each nation must give in order to live. When you give life, you will have life; when you receive, you must pay for it by giving to all others; India has been always giving to the outside world. The gift of India is the gift of religion and philosophy, and wisdom and spirituality. And religion does not want cohorts to march before its path and clear its way. Wisdom and philosophy do not want to be carried on floods of blood. Wisdom and philosophy do not march upon bleeding human bodies, do not march with violence but come on the wings of peace and love"

This article is too short to stimulate an inquisitive mind.
KURAN C GHOSH
When Swami Vivekananda started his famous Chicago Address, he tried to explain the all-pervasive features of Hinduism but when he finished he re-defined and created a new Hinduism. He was not a Hindu, but a Brahmo-Samaj Member. Yet He has been the greatest of exponents of real Hinduism. He was full of energy, enthusiasm, love and compassion embodied.
kuran c ghosh
SWAMI VIVEKANANDA UNITED THE WORLD FOR EVER.
kuran c ghosh
Swami Vivekananda had a very short life of just 39 years, the last 9 of which saw his revolutionising the world religions.
Mahesh kaushik
Swamiji was a great personality and his thoughts were for the goodness of mankind.
Shankar
In nutshell I woud say that Swamiji emulated that The Intense belief on any thing shall bestow the realization of the belief in reality.
KURAN C GHOSH
As his mother performed the worship of Vireshwara Shiva and got him as his son, Swami Vivekadananda was called fondly "Bilay" short for Vireshwarwar in his childhood.
KURAN CHANDRA GHOSH
Swamiji gave the Wonderful Motto of the Ramakrishna Mission ATMANO MOKSHARTHAM JAGAD HITAYA CHA. FOR ONE`S OWN SALVATION AND THE WELFARE OF THE WORLD. HIS statue should be at the India Gate where people from all over the world visit.
rajiv sharma
Guruji's doors were open to the high and low, poor and rich, and people of all religious affiliations. There was nothing impossible for Guruji.
kuran c ghosh
The more we study Swami Vivekananda, the more we realise how little we have done even after being born as a human being and having so many facilities.
