We have been celebrating the National Youth Day on the birth date of Swami Vivekananda. We should make known to the youth what he gave to the Indian Society.
Indians felt they were slaves and the lion of India believed that they were sheep and used to follow the British. Actually the main aim of British was to make the Indians the British psychologically though they look like Indians in looks English in taste.
Vivekananda before becoming a sanyasi he was a middle-class a young man whose plan was very common, to serve his family and to pull out his family from financial difficulties, on the other hand, his thirst for the spiritual enlightenment made him reach Rama Krishan Paramahamsa. Later, Vivekananda completely became the follower of Rama Krishan Paramahamsa. Not only that, in his words he travelled to the USA and gave the famous speech of Chicago.
The Chicago speech made Vivekananda a global spiritual leader. He called the Americans as “Sisters and Brothers of America” He had shown the egoist Western society the greatness of Hindu philosophy and spirituality.
His meeting with Tesla:
One of the greatest scientists, Tesla met Vivekananda many times and they had a talk about Energy and Time and mass. Vivekananda said that there was a relationship between Energy and mass. Later, Tesla had worked on that but before completing his works, he passed away. After that, Einstein coined ” E=MC2″
His greatest achievement was letting the western world learn Indian Spiritual Advancement. Now, we can see many Europeans and foreigners reaching India and being followers of different Indian Spiritual centres.
Vivekananda said that the world needed the Indian spirituality coupled with Western Scientific knowledge.
Rama Krishna Mission has been into the services of the poor and needy people.
The free schools and the hospitals have been organized by Rama Krishna Mission. He made yoga and meditation as a prominent practice.
Western People have been learning yoga and meditation and they are influenced by the Indian philosophy. Almost the first Indian philosopher was Vivekananda. He had distributed the spiritual treasure to the world.
His teachings produced many leaders like Sarvepalli Radha Krishnan. The world started looking at Hindu society with a lot of enthusiasm now, and the reason behind that is Swamy Vivekananda.
Vivekananda asked for the youngsters to be with steel veins and iron muscles which mean no weakness.
