    Today (Jan 12th) is Swami Vivekananda's Birthday! In 1984, Government of India declared to celebrate his birthday as National Youth Day.

    To quote from the Government's declaration:

    "it was felt that the philosophy of Swamiji and the ideals for which he lived and worked could be a great source of inspiration for the Indian Youth".

    To rekindle this Patriotic Saint's message, here's one of his Inspirational Quote:

    "Arise, awake, not stop till the goal is reached"... We had a huge poster of Swami Vivekananda in our living room with this sentence and its forever etched in my mind.

    "We are what our thoughts have made us.

    So take care about what you think.

    Words are secondary. Thoughts live. They travel far".

    Swami Vivekananda.

    Yes, every one of our word and action is the result of our thought. Let us take care of our thoughts. Let them be good and we will find the world is good to us.

    3 GOLDEN RULES OF VIVEKANANDA:
    Who is Helping You, Don’t Forget them.

    Who is Loving you, Don’t Hate them .
    Who is Believing you, Don’t Cheat them.

    Like me or Hate me,
    both are in my favor,
    If you like me I am in your Heart,
    If you hate me I am in your mind.


    Anything that makes you weak physically, intellectually and spiritually, reject as poison..

    Hi friends,
    My favourite quote of Swami Vivekanada is :

    Take up one idea. Make that one idea your life - think of it, dream of it, live on that idea. Let the brain, muscles, nerves, every part of your body, be full of that idea, and just leave every other idea alone. This is the way to success.
    I read this quote in a book of Swami Vivekananda gifted to me by my grandmother.
    I follow all the sayings of Swami Vivekananda
    and this book is very useful to me.

    Regards,
    Parvathi

    There are many of them!


    "That which is true must be infinite and eternal. That is the one test of truth. It never decays, it is always the same."


    "Do not believe in a thing because you have read about it in a book. Do not believe in a thing because another man has said it was true. Do not believe in words because they are hallowed by tradition. Find out the truth for yourself. Reason it out. That is realization."


    "In a day, when you do not come across any problems,you can be sure that you are travelling in a wrong path."
