A revolutionary leader of Vedanta philosophy, the staunch disciple of Sri Ramakrishna, the founder of Ramakrishna Mission – Swami Vivekananda committed his life towards bridging the chasm between the plush and penniless.
As the nation celebrates his honorable birthday on 12th Jan – we would like to throw light upon his philosophy on life and happiness with the hope that it will leave you a little calmer, a little happier and a little better than what you were before. Here are some Swami Vivekananda quotes for you:
“Purity, patience, and perseverance are the three essentials to success.”
“Religion is realization; not talk, not doctrine, nor theories, however beautiful they may be. It is being and becoming, not hearing or acknowledging; it is the whole soul becoming changed into what it believes.”
“They alone live who live for others, the rest are more dead than alive.”
“If you have faith in all the three hundred and thirty millions of your mythological gods, and still have no faith in yourselves, there is no salvation for you. Have faith in yourselves, and stand up on that faith and be strong; that is what we need”
“So long as the millions live in hunger and ignorance, I hold every man a traitor who, having been educated at their expense, pays not the least heed to them”
“We want that education by which character is formed, strength of mind is increased, the intellect is expanded, and by which one can stand on one’s own feet”
“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”
On Our Souls
“You have to grow from the inside out. None can teach you, none can make you spiritual. There is no other teacher but your own soul”
“Everything can be sacrificed for truth, but truth cannot be sacrificed for anything.”
Wishing you a complete life.
