January 12 is the 155th birth anniversary of Swami Vivekananda, who was one of India’s most renowned spiritual leaders. He is known to be a prolific thinker, a great orator and a passionate patriot. Born in 1863, his teachings inspired a lot of young Indians and brought a spiritual awakening in the 19th century. Swami Vivekananda’s birth anniversary is also celebrated as National Youth Day.

Born in an aristocratic Bengali family of Calcutta, Vivekananda’s teachings have created a positive impact on his followers. He was influenced by Indian mystic and yogi, Ramakrishna, who taught him all his life lessons. After Ramakrishna’s death, Vivekananda toured the Indian subcontinent extensively and acquired first-hand knowledge of the conditions prevailing in British India. Swami Vivekananda represented India and Hinduism at the Parliament of the World’s Religions in 1893. On his birth anniversary, we shed some light on some of his best life lessons.

Swami Vivekananda, Best quotes of Swami Vivekananda,
* The world is the great gymnasium where we come to make ourselves strong.

* 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.

* Truth can be stated in a thousand different ways, yet each one can be true.

* All differences in this world are of degree, and not of kind, because oneness is the secret of everything.

* Where can we go to find God if we cannot see Him in our own hearts and in every living being.

*You cannot believe in God until you believe in yourself.

*Arise! Awake! and stop not until the goal is reached.

*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.

He will always be alive in his words of wisdom. The coming generations will also take inspiration from him and lead their life being a good human being.
