Lion of India



!! SWAMI VIVEKANANDA!!

The Indian with a Lion heart

Swami Vivekananda, known in his pre-monastic life as Narendra Nath Datta, was born in an affluent family in Kolkata on 12 January 1863.


During his travels all over India, Swami Vivekananda was deeply moved to see the appalling poverty and backwardness of the masses. He was the first religious leader in India to understand and openly declare that the real cause of India’s downfall was the neglect of the masses.


Decision to attend the Parliament of Religions
It was when these ideas were taking shape in his mind in the course of his wanderings that Swami Vivekananda heard about the World’s Parliament of Religions to be held in Chicago in 1893. His friends and admirers in India wanted him to attend the Parliament. He too felt that the Parliament would provide the right forum to present his Master’s message to the world, and so he decided to go to America. Another reason which prompted Swamiji to go to America was to seek financial help for his project of uplifting the masses.
Swamiji, however, wanted to have an inner certitude and divine call regarding his mission. Both of these he got while he sat in deep meditation on the rock-island at Kanyakumari. With the funds partly collected by his Chennai disciples and partly provided by the Raja of Khetri, Swami Vivekananda left for America from Mumbai on 31 May 1893.


Proud Indian who gave new identity to India



Vivekanand was conscious of the potential of youths and its power to change the fate of nation if effectively brought in application. Sadly, an overall picture of today’s youth does not present an appealing image. Although Indian Youth have  made rapid progress in spheres at par with materialistic aspirations their inner beings, are still suffering and became looser because of corruption in INDIA. 
YOUTH CAN ONLY CHANGE RULING CORRUPT MONSTERS AND MADE THEM SIT AT HOME
