Vivekananda was the chief disciple of the 19th century mystic Sri Ramakrishna Paramahamsa and Played a major role in spiritual enlightenment of Indian masses; Spread Vedanta philosophy in the West; established Ramakrishna Mission for the service of the poor.

Awakening His Countrymen

He returned to India in January 1897. In response to the enthusiastic welcome that he received everywhere, he delivered a series of lectures in different parts of India, which created a great stir all over the country. Through these inspiring and profoundly significant lectures Swamiji attempted to do the following: to rouse the religious consciousness of the people and create in them pride in their cultural heritage; to bring about unification of Hinduism by pointing out the common bases of its sects; to focus the attention of educated people on the plight of the downtrodden masses, and to expound his plan for their uplift by the application of the principles of Practical Vedanta.

Founding of Ramakrishna Mission

Soon after his return to Kolkata, Swami Vivekananda accomplished another important task of his mission on earth. He founded on 1 May 1897 a unique type of organization known as Ramakrishna Mission, in which monks and lay people would jointly undertake propagation of Practical Vedanta, and various forms of social service, such as running hospitals, schools, colleges, hostels, rural development centres etc, and conducting massive relief and rehabilitation work for victims of earthquakes, cyclones and other calamities, in different parts of India and other countries.

Belur Math

In early 1898 Swami Vivekananda acquired a big plot of land on the western bank of the Ganga at a place called Belur to have a permanent abode for the monastery and monastic Order originally started at Baranagar, and got it registered as Ramakrishna Math after a couple of years. Here Swamiji established a new, universal pattern of monastic life which adapts ancient monastic ideals to the conditions of modern life, which gives equal importance to personal illumination and social service, and which is open to all men without any distinction of religion, race or caste.

Selected Teachings of Swami Vivekananda

  1. My ideal, indeed, can be put into a few words, and that is: to preach unto mankind their divinity, and how to make it manifest in every movement of life.
  2. Education is the manifestation of the perfection already in man.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. Whatever you think, that you will be. If you think yourselves weak, weak you will be; if you think yourselves strong, strong you will be.
  6. 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.
  7. Strength, strength it is that we want so much in this life, for what we call sin and sorrow have all one cause, and that is our weakness. With weakness comes ignorance, and with ignorance comes misery.
  8. The older I grow, the more everything seems to me to lie in manliness. This is my new Gospel.
  9. Purity, patience, and perseverance are the three essentials to success, and above all, love.
  10. 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.
  11. Religion is the manifestation of the Divinity already in man.
  12. Teach yourselves, teach everyone his real nature, call uon the sleeping soul and see how it awakes. Power will come, glory will come, goodness will come, purity will come, and everything that is excellent will come when this sleeping soul is roused to self-conscious activity.
  13. They alone live who live for others, the rest are more dead than alive.
  14. This is the gist of all worship – to be pure and to do good to others.
  15. It is love and love alone that I preach, and I base my teaching on the great Vedantic truth of the sameness and omnipresence of the Soul of the Universe.

 

Last Days

In June 1899 he went to the West on a second visit. This time he spent most of his time in the West coast of USA. After delivering many lectures there, he returned to Belur Math in December 1900. The rest of his life was spent in India, inspiring and guiding people, both monastic and lay. Incessant work, especially giving lectures and inspiring people, told upon Swamiji’s health. His health deteriorated and the end came quietly on the night of 4 July 1902. Before his Mahasamadhi he had written to a Western follower: “It may be that I shall find it good to get outside my body, to cast it off like a worn out garment. But I shall not cease to work. I shall inspire men everywhere until the whole world shall know that it is one with God.”

Vivekananda: World Teacher

His Teachings on the Spiritual Unity of Humankind – Through enlightening
lectures, letters, poems, photographs,newspaper reports and reminiscences of Vivekananda,
this book presents an intimate portrait of Vivekananda and
his influential messages of spiritual democracy, spiritual humanism, and world unity.

THE COMPELETE WORKS OF SWAMI VIVEKANANDA in 9 volumes

In these volumes we have not only a gospel to the world at large, but also, to its own children, the Charter of the Hindu faith. For the first time in history, Hinduism itself forms here the subject of generalization of a Hindu mind of the highest order. What Hinduism had needed was the organizing and consolidating of its own idea, a rock where she could lie at anchor, and an authoritative utterance in which she might recognise herself. What the world had needed was a faith that had no fear of truth. Both are found in the words and writings of Swami Vivekananda. It is the latest gospel of a modern Prophet of religion and spirituality to the mankind.

Bhakthiyoga

The Swami begins the book by defining ‘Bhakti’ or devotion, supreme devotion that begins with renunciation. What the Swami says is telling: “We all begin with love for ourselves, and the unfair claims of the little self make even love selfish; at last, however, comes the full blaze of light in which this little self is seen, to have become one with the Infinite. Man himself is transfigured in the presence of this Light of Love, and he realises at last the beautiful and inspiring truth that Love, the Lover, and the Beloved are One.” This is truly the end of Bhakti Yoga – the yoga of love for God.

bhakthiyoga

Karmayoga

INDIA

In the pages of this book are collected some of the writings of the author dealing with India. They are extremely relevant at a time when India is entering on a new era of her history.

Salvation and Service

Even after having stepped into the third millennium characterized by stupendous scientific and technological progress, the world today is witnessing a shocking erosion of ethical and spiritual values all around. In this backdrop a keen need is being felt for combining service with spiritual life, and spiritual life with service, for enriching the quality of both, as an effective panacea for this canker on the world body. This small booklet precisely provides that relieving balm. It is compiled from the numerous inspiring letters penned by Swami Vivekananda. Highly motivating, this book shows us the way to connect the apparently divergent currents of life – Salvation and Service.

THE EAST AND THE WEST

In this book the author paints on a vast canvas the salient features of the Oriental and Occidental civilizations and shows that every nation is an expression of an idea; that every nation has got a distinctive role to play as far as the preservation and strengthening of the world order is concerned; that there ought to be swapping of these ideas with an open mind to make for a healthy world order. The author, in his inimitable style, and at times in a humorous and sarcastic vein, brings out the different colourful traits of both the Orientals and the Occidentals, which not only keep the readers engrossed, but also rouses in them a sense of respect and honour for all the civilizations of the world.

Swami Vivekananda – Leader of Sacred Nationhood

This book is a sincere attempt at examining the present situation in the country on some of the major fronts and makes us realize the gross departure of our country’s populace from the ideals Swami Vivekananda placed before us for the making of an “ideal society”. The damaging ideology of materialism has gripped the nation’s soul and infused her with thorough profaneness in every sphere of life.

Swami Vivekananda: His Humanism

This book chiefly attempts to show how Swami Vivekananda’s humanism differs drastically from that of other humanists. In fact, the readers will find in these stimulating pages that most of the humanists touched only the peripheral zone of man, whereas Vivekananda’s humanism had a far-reaching significance in the estimation of values in human life. His humanism is divine in its nature as it touches the central core of man.Author: Swami Ranganathananda Publisher: Advaita Ashrama Languages:English,Hindi,Bengali

The Science and Philosophy of Religion

The ancient seers of India realized the highest non-dual Truth and thus attained to unity in the religious field; they succeeded in bringing religion to the rank of a perfect and complete science. The methods adopted by them to come to this result were the same as those followed by all the sciences of the present day. This book discusses how the philosophers of India applied these rational methods in coming to their respective discoveries, thus establishing the scientific character of Indian philosophy and religion. The book chiefly makes a comparative study of Samkhya, Vedanta and other systems of thought.Author: Swami Vivekananda Publisher: Advaita Ashrama Languages:Hindi,English, Bengali.

Vivekananda Sahitya (Set of 10)

In these volumes we have not only a gospel to the world at large, but also, to its own children, the Charter of the Hindu faith. For the first time in history, Hinduism itself forms here the subject of generalization of a Hindu mind of the highest order. What Hinduism had needed was the organizing and consolidating of its own idea, a rock where she could lie at anchor, and an authoritative utterance in which she might recognise herself. What the world had needed was a faith that had no fear of truth. Both are found in the words and writings of Swami Vivekananda. It is the latest gospel of a modern Prophet of religion and spirituality to the mankind.Author: Swami Vivekananda

Thoughts on the Gita

Universal Ethics and Moral Conduct

In these days of terrible erosion in human values, when man is guided by the deadly materialistic view of himself and the world, the role of this book is like that of a beacon light which awakens him to a new value system. Jesus had said, ‘love thy neighbours as thyself’, but why? In these pages the readers get the answer to this question. The practice of ethics and morality when based merely on religious precepts leaves the modern man with the seed of doubt in his heart as he fails to understand the rationality, behind them. Ethic needs to be founded on the rock of rationality which alone can help the modern man to make it a part of his life whole heartedly. This wonderful collection from the Works of Swami Vivekananda precisely fulfils this role.Author: Swami Vivekananda Publisher: Advaita Ashrama Languages: English

My India, the India Eternal

‘Our love for India came to birth, I think, when we first heard him say the word, “India”, in that marvellous voice of his. It seems incredible that so much could have been put into one small word of five letters. There was love, passion, pride, longing, adoration, tragedy, chivalry, and again love. Whole volumes could not have produced such a feeling in others. It had the magic power of creating love in those who heard it. – Sister Christine ‘Author: Swami Vivekananda Publisher: Ramakrishna Mission, Golpark Languages: English, Hindi, Bengali

REAL WORSHIP

It is in love that religion exists and not in the ceremony, in the pure and sincere love in the heart. Unless a man is pure in body and mind, his coming into a temple and worshipping Shiva is useless. The prayers of those that are pure in mind and body will be answered by Shiva, and those that are impure and yet try to teach religion to others will fail in the end. External worship is only a symbol of internal worship, but internal worship and purity are the real things. Without them, external worship would be of no avail. Therefore, you must all try to remember this .

Swami Vivekananda and Erasing of the Dividing Line

This is a deeply insightful piece of writing by Swami Ranganathanandaji, the late thirteenth President of the Ramakrishna Math and Ramakrishna Mission. Originally titled ‘Swami Vivekananda and the Future of India’, this article was written on that fateful day, 15 August 1947, and contributed to the Pakistan Independence Day special issue of The Daily Gazette of Karachi, Pakistan. In these pages is evident the loftiness of the Swami’s historical vision, and its relevance stands undimmed even after six decades. The ‘Dividing Line’ refers to the visible and invisible factors that gave rise to the Two-Nation theory at the time of independence. The seed of this theory had been planted insidiously by the British Government in the minds of the Muslim leaders, some of them being prominent members of the Indian National Congress.Author: Swami Ranganathananda Language: English Publisher: Advaita Ashrama, Kolkata

Vivekananda: The Great Spiritual Teacher

What is it about Swami Vivekananda that makes him a great spiritual teacher ? The obvious answer would be his spiritual realizations. But other great saints, too, have had such spiritual experiences and yet have not become world famous or made the kind of impact that the Swami did.

What that mission was, how the Swami fulfilled it, how he lived his life – these are some of the subjects dealt with in the thirty-nine illuminating articles of this volume.

Swami Vivekananda: The Known Philosopher The Unknown Poet

All great mystics have been great poets. Swamiji says in his ‘Memoirs of European Travels’ that every good poet is a Vedantin e.g. Goethe, Schiller and Lamartine. The beauty in nature is only
the partial expression of the real all-embracing divine beauty. His poetry is the symbolic and lyrical expression of the innate beauty of the individual and the Divine Self.

Swami Vivekananda Epoch Maker Spiritual Leader

Today’s world is torn by the fundamentalist aggression, consumerist greed ending in cut-throat economic competition, and frustration and peacelessness arising out of a sensate culture. People all over the world are in search of peace, stability, amity among religions, and individual freedom in a sustainable society. All this can come only under the right kind of leadership. In this global civilisation, we need leaders who are universal in approach, all- embracing in religious outlook, rational and humanistic in thinking, and above all spiritual in vision. All great leaders are products of great philosophy. India’s universal- rational-humanistic Vedanta culture has given rise to spiritual and epochal heroes like Buddha, Ashoka, Guru Nanak, Shankaracharya, and most ‘recently Swami Vivekananda’.Author: Swami Jitatmananda Language: English Publisher: Ramakrishna Ashrama Rajkot
