Remembering SWAMI

Today marks the 150th birthday of Swami Vivekananda. It is an honor that this great personality belonged to India. His contributions to India have been immense.

Swami was the founder of Ramakrishna Math. Later, he went on to become the founder of Ramakrishna Mission.
The mission performs extensive work in health care, rural management, elementary education and culture.
It has provided education to many rural children who, otherwise would have been deprived of it.

Swami was true 

"Education is the manifestation of the perfection already in man"




                                                  



It was Swami Vivekananda who traveled the country on foot to understand the country and its people. His speech at Chicago unraveled India to the world. 
Swami wanted to blend the culture and spirituality of our country and the knowledge of science and technology from the west for the betterment of mankind.

As part of the society, it is important for each one of us to contribute to a better tomorrow.
Let us all get inspired by this divine personality by recollecting what he once said

"YOU HAVE TO GROW FROM THE INSIDE OUT. NONE CAN TEACH YOU, NONE CAN MAKE YOU SPIRITUAL. THERE IS NO OTHER TEACHER BUT YOUR OWN SOUL."
