Swami Vivekananda Biography

"Dare to be free, Dare to go as far as your thoughts lead, and dare to carry that out in your life"

Narendranath Datta better known as Swami Vivekananda (12 January 1963- 4 July 1902) was an Indian Hindu monk, creative thinker, social reformer, great speaker, and fervent patriotic who founded the Ramakrishna Math and the Ramakrishna Mission. He firmly practised, preached, and advised others for the pure and true spiritual path. His birthday is celebrated as National Youth Day in India.

Here are few anecdotes from his life-

Swami Vivekananda Life History 

Once when Swami Vivekananda was in Varanasi, he was surrounded by a large number of mischievous monkeys while he was coming out of the temple of Maa Durga. They seem to be exasperating him. Swamiji did not want to catch them so he started running but the wicked monkeys followed him an old monk was watching them he asked Swamiji to 'stop and face them!' Swamiji obeyed the monk and stopped. When he turned around and faced the monkey they ran away. Years late he said, "If you ever feel afraid of anything, always turn round and face it. Never think of running away."

During a long trek in the Himalayas, Swamiji found an old man extremely tired and exhausted. He was standing without any further hopes at the foot of an upward slope. The man complained to Swamiji in frustration, "Oh, Sir, how to cross it; I cannot walk any more; my chest will break." After patiently listening to them and he replied, "Look down at your feet. The road that is under your feet is the road that you have passed over and is the same road that you have before you; it will soon be under your feet." His words motivated the old man to resume his onward trek.

On September 11, 1893, in his debut speech at the Parliament Of religions in Chicago instead of the customary 'Ladies and Gentleman,' he addressed the gathering of 7,000 people with 'Sisters and Brothers of America' for which he was applauded for full 2 minutes.
While returning to India from London, one of his British friends asked him: `Swami, how do you like now your motherland after four years' experience of the luxurious, glorious, powerful West?' Swamiji patiently said: `India I loved before I came away. Now the very dust of India has become holy to me, the very air is now to me holy; it is now the holy land, the place of pilgrimage, the Tirtha!'
A true inspiration for millions!
