Swami Vivekananda

Swami Vivekananda.

Swami Vivekananda was born on 12th January 1863 in Kolkata. His father name is Vishwanath Dutt and mother's name was Bhuvaneshwari Devi. Before he became a hermit his name was Narenranath Dutt. And he was also known as Naren. His family was well known for wealth, tradition.. ..large heartedness and was scholarly. Vishwanath Dutt was Attorney at Law at Kolkata high court. He used to practice law at the Kolkata high school. He was a thinker. A person who was extremely kind. He had a great deal of empathy towards the poor. He had a passionate and valuable point of view.. ..towards religious and social issues. Bhuvaneshwari Devi was a very simple lady. His father believed in the western culture. He wanted to educate his son Narendra in English.. ..and make him the follow the western culture.

Swami Vivekananda Teachings

Narendra was always very sharp. And his interest lied in God and spirituality. Hence he joined the Brahma society first. But he didn't find peace there. In the meanwhile he had graduated in BA from the Kolkata university. And started preparing for the law exam. At this time he met lots of people.. clear his religious and spiritual doubts. But he didn't find any answers to his doubts anywhere. 

One day one of his relatives took him to Ramkrishna Paramhansa. Swami RamKrishna Paramhans asked Narendra as soon as he saw him. Can you sing a hymn? Narendra said. Yes I can. Then Narendra sang a couple of hymns in his melodious voice. Swami Paramhans was really pleased with his hymns. From that time Narendra started singing hymns for Swami Paramhans. And became his disciple. He had become a staunch follower of the Veda theology. Between 1887 and 1892.. ..Swami Vivekanand lived a life of anonymity. After performing penance in a life of solitude.. ..he went on a tour of India. Swami Paramhans left for the heavenly abode on 16th August 1886.

Swami Vivekanand wanted to make an important contribution.. the propaganda of Veda and Yoga in the western culture . He was a famous and an impactful guru of the Vedas. His real name was Narendra Nath Dutt. He had represented the Hindu ideology.. the world religious conference held at Chicago in 1893. India's Vedas managed to reach every country of America and Europe.. ..thanks to Swami Vivekanand. He established the Ram Krishna mission and it is doing its work even today. He was Swami Ramkrishna Parmamhans's well qualified and talented disciple. He is known for starting his speech he made at the US.. ..with the line my dear American brothers and sisters. Swami Vivekanand has mentioned Pawhari Baba.. various places in his speech and writing. Pawhari means someone who feeds on air. A well-known fact about Pawhari Baba was that he wouldn't eat anything. He was really impressed by this weird sage.. ..and he also penned Pawhari Baba's biography. Pawhari Baba used to live in a cave. He would meditate in the cave for days and months on end. No one knows what he use to eat during that long a period. That's why people named him Pawhari Baba. Pawhari meant someone who feeds on air. Someone who spend his life only by consuming air.

 The speech made by Swami Vivekananda.. the world religious conference in Chicago. Swami Vivekananda really discussed speech at Chicago.. the world religious conference on 11 December 1893. At whatever point individuals talk about him.. ..this discourse of his definitely talked about. His speech read. Get up. Wake up. And don't stop till you achieve your goal. I teach love and love only. And my teaching is based on the great facts of the Vedas.. ..which enlighten us about equality and completeness of the soul. Success has three important aspects. Purity, patience and determination. But what's above everything is love. We need an educated which develops the character.. ..develops the mental powers, expands our knowledge.. ..and which makes us able enough to be independent. Explain to yourself and explain others. Call out to the soul that's asleep. And see how it comes to life. When a dormant soul comes to life..'ll achieve power, progress, goodness. Everything. My belief systems can be communicated in these words as it were. Human kind should use divinity at every step of the age. We strive to get more in life because of power only. And this makes us commit sins. And invite sorrow. Weakness is the reason for sins and sorrows. Weakness opens the door for ignorance. And ignorance opens the door for sorrow. If you have faith in 33 crore Gods and Goddesses.. ..but not in your own self then you cannot attain salvation. Have faith in yourself. Stay dogged and become strong. This is what we need. The maxim of Swami's ideologies is inspired.. ..from a mantra of the kathopanishad.
